Overview

Ministering Cross-Culturally examines the significance of the Incarnation for effective cross-cultural ministry. The authors demonstrate that Jesus needed to learn and understand the culture in which he lived before he could undertake his public ministry. The Incarnational model offered in this book has proved to be successful for thousands of ministers. Several sections in this second edition have been rewritten and the book has been updated to reflect development in the authors’ thinking.
