Preparing Missionaries for Intercultural Communication: A Bi-cultural Approach

Front Cover
William Carey Library, 1985 - Religion - 204 pages
Missionaries, while being prepared in the Bible, often receive little training in understanding the world in which we live and some experience great hardship out in the field as a result. The purpose of this book is to enable cross-cultural missionaries to be more adequately prepared for the task of intelligent communication. The author sets forth the major areas which are important in training the missionary to communicate with other cultures.
