by Pascale L. WIlliams
The world is made up of people of all different cultures, all different experiences, and all different perceptions. Even when we are sincere, it is often difficult to relate to people who look, speak, and behave differently from us.
This book offers Christians of all backgrounds the opportunity to come together in a classroom setting or a bible study group to learn simple guidelines and lessons that will help them become more effective when relating and ministering to people from diverse backgrounds and unfamiliar cultures. The lessons in this course are also designed to help Christians identify myths, stereotypes, and belief systems that hinder unity and positive interactions in the Body of Christ. Christians from every denomination will not only develop an understanding of Godís heart for missions and cross-cultural ministry, but they will gain insights for improving their relationships with all people in their local church.
