IVP Academic Leading Across Cultures: Effective Ministry and Mission in the Global Church

What is leadership? No doubt people will define it differently. But this is as it should be for we live in a multi-cultural world that requires not only different understandings, but an understanding of how those assumptions will affect if, and how people will follow a leader.

Mono-cultural leaders effective as they have been are now not only outdated, the very instruments that were so effective will now work against their leadership in multi-cultural context. Where to go from here?In Leading Across Cultures: Effective Ministry and Mission in the Global Church develops theories on how Christian can penetrate the cultural divide by examining how we should understand the nature of leadership abstractly, as well as the ways our cultural understandings need to be adjusted for use in other contexts. This is further grounded in a highly developed theology of leadership, rooted in the biblical paradigm.

This book promises to be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to be involved in cross-cultural ministry, whether in overseas missions, multi-ethnic churches, or any other kind of multi-cultural ministry. It will also be particularly informative and helpful for missions organizations in seeking to establish training standards for missionary work, and for vetting possible candidates.

This book is not only a must read for those doing cross cultural ministry it is a very valuable book to read if you are wanting to improve your leadership by increasing your practical and biblical understanding of leadership issues. It is very well written, concepts are presented clearly and with multiple practical illustrations and applications. I have recommended it to many friends and pastors in ministry.
