At a time when more and more Christians are meeting people from different cultural backgrounds, this book addresses a number of important questions: How do we understand what culture is all about? How do we reach out to people from different cultures? What impact does culture have on "making disciples"? What impact does culture have on the local church? This book seeks to address and answer these questions and is relevant to all Christians, including members and leaders of local churches who want to reach out to their neighbors and encourage them to be part of the church. It would also be useful for those about to engage in mission in a new culture.
