Overview

Ministering Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Personal Relationships / Edition 2

In Ministering Cross-Culturally, the authors demonstrate that Jesus needed to learn and understand the culture in which he lived before he could undertake his public ministry. The authors examine how this can help us better understand what it means to establish relationships of grace with those from different cultural and social backgrounds.
With more than 70,000 copies of the first edition in print, this incarnational model of ministry has proven successful for many people. Several sections in this second edition have been rewritten, and the entire book has been updated to reflect development in the authors' thinking. Drawing from the authors' rich experience on the mission field, this book will benefit anyone who wants to be salt and light in a multicultural and multiethnic world.

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. .
