Leader’s Edge (Missions/Ministry)
Wipf & Stock, 2017, 212 pages
This helpful book asserts that culture and understanding the host culture matters in effective communication. It affirms that culture is much more powerful than we first suppose. Strauss even asserts that culture trumps the biblical story, and therefore understanding and skills are required for effective engagement across cultures. In Introducing Story-Strategic Methods, Strauss relays a twelve-step methodology that addresses the problems of miscommunication and syncretism that plague cross-cultural contexts. Insights are firmly rooted in Scripture and equally grounded in empirical research from the social sciences.
