How can Christian educators teach effectively in different cultures? Here are winning principles drawn from educational theory and personal experience.

- Publisher "Teaching Cross-Culturally" is a challenging consideration of what it means to be a Christian educator in a culture other than your own. Chapters include discussions about how to uncover cultural biases, how to address intelligence and learning styles, and teaching for biblical transformation. "Teaching Cross-Culturally" is ideal for the western-trained educator or missionary who plans to work in a non-western setting, as well as for those who teach in an increasingly multicultural North America.

- Publisher "Applause for an interestingly written teaching guide that encapsulates an extraordinary amount of scarce information under one cover! Drawing on decades of research and experience, the authors identify sources of bewilderment for both teachers and learners, then suggest a wealth of practical techniques with which to meet the challenges. Lessons learned during my years in non-western classrooms confirm the wisdom of these recommendations. Here is a ''must read'' book for all cross-cultural instructors, whether novices or seasoned practitioners."--Patricia M. Davis, international literacy and education consultant, Summer Institute of Linguistics, Dallas, Texas"What a delight to read a book that helps to address one of the most important and most neglected needs in world missions. Christ''s Commission is much broader than reaching the unreached. Jesus commands us to make disciples of all nations through teaching. Each person teaching in another culture will benefit from the principles and examples in this book."-Jim Plueddemann, international director, SIM (Serving In Mission)"Incarnational teaching is truly the strength of this book. It allows readers to reflect from both a teacher''s and a learner''s perspective. The books provides a deeper understanding of the importance, as Christian educators, of taking culture seriously. Readers will be challenged to reflect in ways that bring growth as a teacher as well as a Christian. Administrators will find that this book brings wisdom about creating an institution that includes persons from different cultures-international students as well as national ethnic groups. A book for faculty group discussions."-Elizabeth Conde-Frazier, assistant professor of religious education, Claremont School of Theology"What an eye-opener for someone who thought himself quite informed in teaching cross-culturally! The contents of this book must become functional knowledge for everyone who seeks to disciple the nations. Teaching Cross-Culturally provides step-by-step, doable actions to create the best learning environments. I have been in a formal education setting for twenty years and have been developing ideas of my role as a teacher. After reading this book, I need to do a U-turn!"-Julius Wong Loi Sing, Moody Graduate School"Written with power, grace, and a wealth of wisdom, Teaching Cross-Culturally is essential reading for all Christian leaders who are called to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ in an ever-dynamically changing world. This is vintage Lingenfelter!"-S. Steve Kang, Wheaton College "Whether you teach in the culturally diverse classrooms of North America or in a Bible college or seminary worlds away, Teaching Cross-Culturally may make the difference between frustration and success in your educational ministry. Don''t hang on by your fingernails when you can enjoy the experience of learning and teaching effectively in other cultures. Your own cultural experience and assumptions about learning won''t automatically work when you are teaching students from other cultures. The Lingenfelters link sound educational technique with timeless biblical example to make teaching a ministry in intercultural contexts."-Michael Pocock, chairman and senior professor, world missions and intercultural studies, Dallas Theological Seminary"Looking for a text to prepare students to teach effectively in diverse cultural contexts? Teaching Cross-Culturally is the tool you need! Those of us who have used the Lingenfelters'' earlier texts on intercultural living and ministry welcome the arrival of this new work. It goes beyond educational technique in showing the teacher how to learn from students about how to teach them more effectively. Using sound missiological principles and timeless biblical truths, the Lingenfelters provide a truly Christian approach to teaching successfully in intercultural contexts."-Michael Pocock, chairman and senior professor, world missions and intercultural studies, Dallas Theological Seminary"
