Baker Teaching Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Learning and Teaching

This book is designed to complement Sherwood Lingenfelter's highly succesful Ministering Cross Culturally. It takes similar insights and applies them specifically to an educational setting. It also guides readers with little understanding of cross-cultural challenges in ministry and helps them see how cultural sensitivity and effective teaching are inseperably linked. Chapters include discussions about how to uncover cultural biases, how to address intelligence and learning styles, and teaching for biblical transformation. It is ideal for the western-trained educator who plans to work in a non-western setting.

Missionaries, "tentmakers", and those who teach in an increasingly multicultural North America will find this book helpful.

I bought this book for my school in the Himalayas, which has at any one time at least 10 nationalities in it. I hope that it will help new staff trying to find their feet in the amazing setting in which God has put them.
