Overview

Anyone working or living in a cross-cultural milieu will benefit enormously from reading the insights shared in this book. It provides valuable assistance to all who voyage outside their own culture--helping to alleviate the anger and frustration of having to deal with those whose manners and mores are baffling and strange. From three decades of living and working abroad--in some of the world's most remote corners--the author has brought back touching stories that encourage you to see life from another's point of view. Filled with concrete and exceptional discernments about dealing in an alien context, Ms. Sand has given us a valuable tool for all who go to a foreign clime or rub shoulders with peoples from other lands.

Read an Excerpt

From the foreword by Dr. Arthur F. Glasser, Dean Emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary: "Every so often there comes into one's circle of friends a person whose impact is different. Not just supportive but challenging. Not just reassuring but probing. Such a person is Faith Annette Sand. My wife Alice and I have not been the same since she invaded our lives. ... We have been impressed with the authenticity of her commitment to Jesus Christ, the depth of her concern for all dimensions of the human condition and the abiilty she has of seeing through the fog of the average Christian's thought and action (of people's too). She can discern with uncanny skill the real issues and the nubs around which great questions turn.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
Leonardo Boff, Brazilian theologian: "Compliments on distilling so many important perceptions on cross-cultural problems that must be faced by all who search for understanding in the midst of differing contexts."

Tissa Balasuriya, president, Aquinas University Collge, Sri Lanka: "This delightful and profound guide should be required reading for all who travel outside their own country to live or work. I recommend it highly.
