Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In our communities composed of people from various cultures, countries, and backgrounds, where does the church stand? How representative is it? And how can local churches best minister and evangelize within an increasingly multicultural society? Cultural Change and Your Church is an invaluable resource for understanding the transformation of our cultural landscape and, most important, for learning how to embrace the resulting opportunities to minister to all people. Michael Pocock and Joseph Henriques consider the Bibleís examples and teaching related to diversity, introduce several churches currently modeling cross-cultural ministry, and suggest hands-on ways for church leaders to encourage change and proactive thinking. ìThis outstanding volume will challenge church leaders and laypersons alike to be culturally sensitive to Americaís kaleidoscope society and winsome in winning people of other backgrounds to Christ.î

Roy B. Zuck, Dallas Theological Seminary, editor, Bibliotheca Sacra ìThis remarkable book comes out of the trenches, not the ivory tower. As a guide for cross-cultural ministry, it is solidly based on Scripture, not the latest fads. You will be educated and motivated by reading this book. I canít recommend it too highly.î

Warren W. Wiersbe, author, Bible teacher, speaker ìThis volume will assist the Church in carrying out the Great Commission in the 21st century.î

Dr. Manuel Ortiz, professor of ministry and urban mission, Westminster Theological Seminary ìMichael Pocock and Joseph Henriques have cast strong vision for outreach into our ethnically diverse communities and given us models to guide the way.î

Aubrey Malphurs, president, Vision Ministries International; pastor; church planter
