Description

Communicating across Cultural Boundaries

"Communication skill is the cross-cultural worker's most essential tool. Moreau, Campbell, and Greener have teamed up to produce a remarkably comprehensive and well-researched volume to sharpen and strengthen that tool. The best of theory is applied to real-life situations with numerous case studies and examples. Effective Intercultural Communication is destined to become the text of choice on this topic from a Christian perspective."
--Craig Ott, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Effective Intercultural Communication is an excellent compilation, containing important information for Western leaders who want to serve internationally with cultural intelligence. The case studies and practical examples provide new and interesting ways to approach these crucial topics."
--David Livermore, author of Cultural Intelligence and Serving with Eyes Wide Open

"As globalization redefines how we live, Effective Intercultural Communication charts a clear pathway for those courageous enough to rethink how we communicate in a radically changing world. The principles in this book have profoundly changed me. They will change you too."
--Stephan Bauman, former president and CEO, World Relief

"Any Christian hoping to live faithfully and minister effectively around the world will benefit beyond measure from reading this book and taking its myriad lessons to heart. Moreau, Campbell, and Greener have constructed a thorough, wise, and insightful text. A treasure for mission-minded people who want to be well prepared to face those vexing intercultural issues that are sure to come as soon as one crosses the border."
--Roland Hoksbergen, Calvin College; author of Serving God Globally

"This book fills a need for an up-to-date textbook on intercultural communication. Missionaries, professors of missions, and students will all find this book immensely helpful. It brings the discussion of intercultural communication up to date and provides assistance for struggling communicators. Highly recommended."
--J. Mark Terry, Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary

"This book not only captures the academic portion of intercultural communication but also, through the art of storytelling, explains concepts and principles in a way that can be understood and practiced in all contexts. I highly recommend it for business and ministry professionals."
--Jo Anne Lyon, Wesley Seminary
