Many a Westerner has had a cross-cultural experience of honor and shame. First there are those stuttering moments in the new social landscape. Then after missed cues and social bruises comes the revelation that this culture—indeed much of the world—runs on an honor-shame operating system. When Western individualism and its introspective conscience fails to engage cultural gears, how can we shift and navigate this alternate code? And might we even learn to see and speak the gospel differently if we did? In Ministering in Honor-Shame Cultures Jayson Georges and Mark Baker help us decode the cultural script of honor and shame. What's more, they assist us in reading the Bible anew through the lens of honor and shame, often with startling turns. And they offer thoughtful and practical guidance in ministry within honor-shame contexts. Apt stories, illuminating insights and ministry-tested wisdom complete this well-rounded guide to Christian ministry in honor-shame cultures.

Teaching Across Cultures

Author: James E. Plueddemann
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
ISBN: 9780830873722
Release Date: 2018-11-27
Genre: Religion

In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged between people of different cultural backgrounds. But educators often struggle to adapt to the contexts of diverse learners. Some focus so much on content delivery that they overlook crosscultural barriers to effective teaching. Educator and missiologist James Plueddemann offers field-tested insights for teaching across cultural differences. He unpacks how different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a framework for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience. He provides a model of teaching as pilgrimage, where the aim is not merely the mastery of information but the use of knowledge to foster the development of the pilgrim learner. Plueddemann's crosscultural experience shows how teachers can make connections between content and context, bridging truth and life. Those who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations, churches, and other ministries will find insights here for transformational crosscultural learning.

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."
