Cultural Intelligence: Improving Your Cq to Engage Our Multicultural World

Cultural Intelligence: Improving Your Cq to Engage Our Multicultural World

$29.99

Paperback

T. Scott Daniels, pastor of a Los Angeles megachurch, contends that corporate bodies like churches form an individual spiritual personality of sorts. Cultural influences can impact the collective spirit or attitude of a congregation, either hindering it from becoming all God intends it to be or setting it free to glorify God.

^^In this practical work, Daniels examines the nature of the seven representative "angels" of the churches addressed in Revelation to show how congregations can escape the principalities and powers that hold them captive. The book encourages working pastors, church leaders, and ministry students to consider a systems approach to church leadership--one that takes seriously the powers at work within local congregations - and offers suggestions for transformation.

Twenty-first-century society is diverse, and Christians must be able to understand other cultures and communicate effectively between and among them. Following up on the bestselling Hurt: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers, this new addition to the Youth, Family, and Culture series explores the much-needed skill of Cultural Intelligence (CQ), the ability to work effectively across national, ethnic, and even organizational cultures. While rooted in sound, scholarly research, Cultural Intelligence is highly practical and accessible to general readers. It will benefit students as well as guide ministry leaders interested in increasing their cultural awareness and sensitivity. Packed with assessment tools, simulations, case studies, and exercises, Cultural Intelligence will help transform individuals and organizations into effective intercultural communicators of the gospel. EXCERPT What do you do when you encounter someone who isn't like you? How do you feel? What goes on inside you?

"The more I'm around Dave Livermore, the more I learn how to develop kingdom relationships that cross cultures. Whether you are leading a short-term mission trip, doing local justice work, or simply want to more effectively love others, you are smart to read Cultural Intelligence. You are even smarter if you apply its profound insights to your life and ministry."--Kara E. Powell, executive director, Fuller Youth Institute, Fuller Theological Seminary"In an era of drive-by, short-term missions, David Livermore brings reconstruction. He does not merely suggest cultural sensitivity; he helps us deconstruct and build something new--a pathway to cultural intelligence that can guide us to be citizens of the kingdom of God while being proactively engaged as neighbors in the world."--Mark Oestreicher, president, Youth Specialties"In our increasingly interconnected, multicultural world, the need for cultural understanding has never been greater. Cultural Intelligence is an essential, foundational resource for anyone who desires to effectively interact across cultures--whether traveling internationally, visiting urban centers, or becoming involved in a local school system. Read this book! It will enable you to understand your own culture and the lens through which you see all other cultures. And it will equip you to live in our globalized world."--Paul Borthwick, author of How to Be a World-Class Christian"Comprehensive and accessible, this book clearly details the cultural intelligence model for multicultural ministry. In this book, David Livermore addresses both conceptual and practical issues on cultural intelligence. He has expanded the ideas of multiculturalism to include not only national cultures but also organizational and generational subcultures. This book is an ideal text and a valuable resource for building the core skills of cultural intelligence in individuals and organizations."--Soon Ang, executive director, Center for Leadership and Cultural Intelligence, Nanyang Business School, Singapore"Written for anyone who is serious about ministry, this book explains why cultural intelligence is essential and what one must do to develop and employ it in the practice of ministry."--Sherwood Lingenfelter, author of Ministering Cross-Culturally

The final word on improving any and all human interactions
5 stars By Daisy, Nov 23 2015
Livermore takes the idea of CQ, or Cultural Intelligence, beyond the corporate and political boardrooms and infuses it with a Godly love and a goal to represent Jesus as you communicate the gospel to any person in any context, be it your neighbour, your brother, your workmate, or your kid's sports coach.

He makes a powerful biblical and theological case for why we should embark on this life-changing journey and then gives us the how.

I came to the book with the  thinking that it was about missionary endeavours to people of other ethnicity or nationality than my own. That paradigm was flipped on its head within the first few pages.
The very first day of reading I was already applying my new mindset, almost unconsciously, and witnessing a new ease and effectiveness in relating to people of different cultures, be they generational, religious, organizational, ethnic, national, international, institutional.

It is designed as a workbook: offers a self-assessment at the outset and encourages the reader to repeat the assessment later.

This is a book that I recommended so  thoroughly that four friends bought copies on my first day of reading it! It will dramatically impact how you relate to another person and so offers continual growth in spiritual formation.

A timeless resource for the  book collection of anyone who wants to love people as God does and communicate his good news to them relationally.
