Changing Lanes, Crossing Cultures

Rating: 4 / 5
This book—written for people in church communities—is a timely offering as diversity is celebrated in Australia. It explores how essential it is for people to learn of the beauty and necessity of culturally sensitive communities if we are to effectively present the Gospel in a way that transcends boundaries.
Written by some leaders of the cross-cultural ministry movement, this guide provides a helpful insight into the way churches can partner with cultural minorities in the Australian context.
The book contains six modules that cover “The Why, The What, The How and The When” of cross-cultural ministry.
I believe that as scriptural and theological understandings outlined are examined and applied, readers will be inspired to connect with people of all backgrounds while simultaneously learning how to create spaces of belonging and inclusion within the Christian community.
