Missionaries, while being prepared in the Bible, often receive little training in understanding the world in which we live and some experience great hardship out in the field as a result. The purpose of this book is to enable cross-cultural missionaries to be more adequately prepared for the task of intelligent communication. The author sets forth the major areas which are important in training the missionary to communicate with other cultures.
By being prepared for cross-cultural communication, the missionary will be more sensitive to the needs of others in a cross-cultural context and thereby be a better communicator of the Christian message, being less ethnocentric and more appreciative of national believers and their worldview.
