"Written for anyone who is serious about ministry, this book explains why cultural intelligence is essential and what one must do to develop and employ it in the practice of ministry."--Sherwood Lingenfelter, author of Ministering Cross-Culturally
"In an era of drive-by short-term missions, selfish service projects, and ugly Americans, David Livermore brings reconstruction. He does not merely suggest cultural sensitivity; he helps us deconstruct and build something new--a pathway to cultural intelligence that can guide us to be citizens of the kingdom of God while being proactively engaged as neighbors in the world."--Mark Oestreicher, president, Youth Specialties
"Whether you are leading a short-term mission trip, doing local justice work, or simply want to more effectively love others, you are smart to read Cultural Intelligence. You are even smarter if you apply its profound insights to your life and ministry."--Kara E. Powell, executive director, Fuller Youth Institute, Fuller Theological Seminary
"In our increasingly interconnected, multicultural world, the need for cultural understanding has never been greater. Cultural Intelligence is an essential, foundational resource for anyone who desires to effectively interact across cultures. Read this book! It will enable you to understand your own culture and the lens through which you see all other cultures."--Paul Borthwick, author of How to Be a World-Class Christian
"Comprehensive and accessible, this book clearly details the cultural intelligence model for multicultural ministry. David Livermore has expanded the ideas of multiculturalism to include not only national cultures but also organizational and generational subcultures. He provides an ideal text and a valuable resource for building the core skills of cultural intelligence in individuals and organizations."--Soon Ang, executive director, Center for Leadership and Cultural Intelligence, Nanyang Business School, Singapore
