This book gave me a whole new perspective on Jesus' ministry. I had never before considered that Jesus came to earth and ministered cross-culturally to the Jewish people. The author highlights all the steps Jesus took to be able to better minister cross-culturally. These thoughts helped me transition my mindset, focusing on understanding other cultures versus projecting my own culture onto others. .
