In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged between people of different cultural backgrounds. But educators often struggle to adapt to the contexts of diverse learners. Some focus so much on content delivery that they overlook crosscultural barriers to effective teaching.

Educator and missiologist James Plueddemann offers field-tested insights for teaching across cultural differences. He unpacks how different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a framework for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience. He provides a model of teaching as pilgrimage, where the aim is not merely the mastery of information but the use of knowledge to foster the development of the pilgrim learner.

Plueddemann's crosscultural experience shows how teachers can make connections between content and context, bridging truth and life. Those who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations, churches, and other ministries will find insights here for transformational crosscultural learning.

James E. Plueddemann (Ph.D., Michigan State University) is Professor of Missions and Chair, Department of Missions and Evangelism at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
From 1967 until 1980 he and his wife, Carol, served in Nigeria as missionaries with SIM. During that time he was director of the Christian Education department for the Evangelical Churches of West Africa.


From 1980 to 1993 he served on the faculty of Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He traveled each summer in Africa, Europe, and South America to assist teachers and administrators of theological schools with curriculum design, creative teaching, and spiritual formation. He has an active and continuing interest in cross-cultural Christian education, leadership development, and theological education. Other areas of concern are team relationships, realistic future-oriented mission strategy, and especially prayer and revival.


Dr. Plueddemann served as the International Director of SIM (Serving in Mission) from 1993 until 2004. SIM currently has about 1,600 missionaries in active service in approximately 40 countries.


He is the author of God's Heart for the World: Missionary Themes from Genesis to Revelation; James: Growing in Maturity; Spiritual Hunger: Filling Your Deepest Longings; Meekness: Claiming Your Inheritance (all with Carol Plueddemann) and most recently Leading Across Cultures: Effective Ministry and Mission in the Global Church
