Ministering Cross-Culturally | Sherwood G. Lingenfelter & Marvin K. Mayers
A Model for Effective Personal Relationships… This model for effective personal relationships in a multicultural and multiethnic world has proven successful for many. On the occasion of its thirtieth anniversary, this edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect Sherwood Lingenfelter’s mature thinking on the topic and to communicate with modern readers, helping them minister more effectively to people of different cultural and social backgrounds.
This book examines the significance of the incarnation for effective cross-cultural ministry. Author Marvin K. Mayers and Sherwood Lingenfelter demonstrate that Jesus needed to learn and understand the culture in which he lived before he could undertake his public ministry. They examine how this can help us better understand what it means to establish relationships of grace with those from different cultural and social backgrounds.
