Abstract:

The last thing we want to do in cross-cultural ministry is to offend people in our host cultures. Unfortunately, all too often our actions inadvertently communicate superiority, paternalism, imperialism and arrogance. How can we minister in ways that are received as true Christlike service? Cross-cultural specialist Duane Elmer gives Christians practical guidance for serving internationally with sensitivity and humility. With biblical exposition and cross-cultural awareness, he shows how our actions and attitudes often contradict and offend local cultural sensibilities. He offers principles and guidance for avoiding misunderstandings and building relationships in ways that honor host cultures.
