Duane Elmer asked people around the world how they felt about Western missionaries. The response? "Missionaries could be more effective if they did not think they were better than us." The last thing we want to do in cross-cultural ministry is to offend people in other cultures. Unfortunately, all too often and even though we don't mean it, our actions communicate superiority, paternalism, imperialism and arrogance. Our best intentions become unintentional insults. How can we minister in ways that are received as true Christlike service? Cross-cultural specialist Duane Elmer gives Christians practical advice for serving other cultures with sensitivity and humility. With careful biblical exposition and keen cross-cultural awareness, he shows how our actions and attitudes often contradict and offend the local culture. He offers principles and guidance for avoiding misunderstandings and building relationships in ways that honor others. Here is culturally-savvy insight into how we can follow Jesus' steps to become global servants. Whether you're going on your first short-term mission trip or ministering overseas for extended periods, this useful guide is essential reading for anyone who wants to serve effectively in international settings with grace and sensitivity.

How should we positively interact with others from all types of backgrounds in ways that acknowledge God's diversity in the world? What are effective ways to engage in cross-cultural collaboration endeavors that honor and respect the culture of those involved with our efforts? The principles of cultural humility, beginning with intentional relationship building, provide a framework that can guide our cross-cultural interactions and partnerships with others both locally and globally, in ways that respect both the culture and backgrounds of others. In this book, Eloise Hockett and John Muhanji share their unique experiences of cross-cultural collaboration using the principles of cultural humility, primarily in Kenya. From Mt. Elgon, to a village in rural Kenya, to working with teachers in schools, John and Eloise describe each project through the lens and perspective of an American and a Kenyan. Within these narratives, Eloise and John also share their journey of how they learned to engage and work with one another and learn from each other. John and Eloise believe their collaborative efforts incorporating the themes of cultural humility fully demonstrate how God can work through each person regardless of their cultural background, in order to carry out His plan in the world.

In U.S. Population Projections: 2005-2050, Pew Research Center reported that "The nation's population will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005, and fully 82% of the growth during this period will be due to immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their descendants." This shows that it is essential to study and understand how our mission, especially in the context of the USA, called the nation of immigrants, will respond to this huge mobility of immigrant diaspora. So far, there has been emphasis on doing diaspora missiology; however, there is no practical implications and application in local church setting. Now mission is next door, which implies that the ministry of the local church should be emphasized for 21st contemporary mission. This book provides detailed frameworks and methods of diaspora missiology within local churches, called 'diaspora mission church.' According to the Bible, all human beings are theologically and spiritually diaspora, irrespective of ethnicity, because they were banished from the Garden of Eden, and scattered around the world in God's judgment. Now, they walk toward the encounter with Jesus Christ, preach the gospel as the seed of Kingdom, and finally move toward heaven.

Der Epheserbrief unterscheidet sich durch seinen besonderen Charakter von allen anderen paulinischen Briefen. In seiner dichten und ausgewogenen Sprache entfaltet er die paulinische Theologie in umfassender Weise. Vermutlich war der Tod des Paulus Auslöser für die Entstehung dieses Briefs. Seine Worte klingen wie ein Vermächtnis für die nachfolgende Generation. Gerade für die heutige Zeit hat er Wichtiges zu sagen: Mit seiner ausgeformten Lehre von der Kirche gibt er wesentliche Impulse für das ökumenische Gespräch. Aber auch für die Frage, wie christliches Leben gestaltet und der Glaube im Alltag gelebt werden kann, bietet der Brief wertvolle Hinweise. Man spürt, dass der Brief aus einer betenden Grundhaltung heraus geschrieben wurde. Seine Worte zeugen von spiritueller Tiefe. Sie können darum in besonderer Weise Anregungen geben für die Einübung des Betens in heutiger Zeit. Die Auslegung möchte möglichst vielen LeserInnen die Botschaft des Epheserbriefs erschließen und das Interesse wecken, sich mit seinen Aussagen intensiver zu beschäftigen.

Als Jim Elliot am 8. Januar 1956 in den Regenwäldern Ecuadors durch die Pfeile von Auca-Indianern starb, sprachen damals viele von einer grauenvollen Tragödie. Doch Gott benutzte den Tod dieses jungen Missionars - er wurde nur 29 Jahre alt - , um unzählige Menschen in aller Welt in die konsequente Nachfolge zu rufen. Jim Elliots Frau Elisabeth hat das Zeugnis dieses Lebens anhand von Tagebuchaufzeichnungen und Briefen zusammengestellt und kommentiert. Beeindruckend zeigt es die geistliche Entwicklung eines begabten jungen Mannes, der zielstrebig und mit großer Klarheit seiner Berufung als Missionar folgte - welchen Preis es auch kosten mochte. Der Weg Jim Elliots fordert heraus, die eigenen Lebensziele und -inhalte neu zu überprüfen. Dieses Buch zeigt einen Christen, der ebenso nüchtern wie kompromisslos lebte, was er glaubte: "Der ist kein Tor, der hingibt, was er nicht behalten kann, auf dass er gewinne, was er nicht verlieren kann."
