In Ministering Cross-Culturally, the authors demonstrate that Jesus needed to learn and understand the culture in which he lived before he could undertake his public ministry. The authors examine how this can help us better understand what it means to establish relationships of grace with those from different cultural and social backgrounds. With more than 70,000 copies of the first edition in print, this incarnational model of ministry has proven successful for many people. Several sections in this second edition have been rewritten, and the entire book has been updated to reflect development in the authors' thinking. Drawing from the authors' rich experience on the mission field, this book will benefit anyone who wants to be salt and light in a multicultural and multiethnic world.

- Publisher "With vivid insight, lively narrative, and down-to-earth practicality, this book, by leading Christian anthropologists, is essential reading for anyone interested in ministering cross-culturally."-Robert Priest, associate professor of mission and intercultural studies, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School"The model of basic values outlined in Ministering Cross-Culturally is one of the clearest and most helpful anthropological tools ever created for Christian workers. I have used this text for years in the preparation of undergraduate and graduate students for cross-cultural service, and it remains a student favorite. The model is simple and straightforward yet profoundly helpful in assisting cross-cultural sojourners to recognize value differences, assess and modify their behavior, and build trust in cross-cultural relationships."-Murray Decker, chair, department of anthropology and intercultural studies, Biola University, School of Intercultural Studies"This book's focus, becoming incarnational ministers, is vital in the study of missions. No book more incisively and creatively invites learners to evaluate themselves as they analyze other cultures. This new edition reveals Lingenfelter's enhanced theology of culture: Cultures are not neutral but 'prisons of disobedience' that incarnational ministers must enter and submit to for the sake of the gospel."-Dr. Gailyn Van Rheenen, professor of missions, Abilene Christian University

Must read for Cross-Cultural Ministry
4 stars By Kylie T, Oct 11 2016
Ministering Cross-culturally is a necessary read for those who willare ministering to anyone from another culture. By nature, we approach people and situations thinking our own culture knows best and the way we do things is the "right way." This can be incredibly harmful in a missionary context, and as the author reveals, is contrary to the way Christ approached people and situations. The model presented in this book is model of Christ - incarnational ministry for the advancement of the Gospel. We must learn, like Christ, to first understand people's culture before we can undertake ministry. The author provides example situations one might face in cross-cultural ministry, presenting both the Western and Eastern approach, in a way which leaves one questioning their natural response and asking whether such is is the best way to approach situations. The book provides much wisdom in dealing with people from other cultures in a way which fosters Gospel impact and not Gospel harm. This is achieved by presenting the model of Christ and teaching us how to adapt His incarnational model of ministry into our own cross-cultural ministry.
