Are you looking for a book to help you prepare for cross cultural service or to read together with your team? Here are three great choices. Cross Cultural Connections by Duane Elmer uses his now classic “Cultural Adjustment Map” and provide discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Ministering Cross-Culturally by Sherwood Lingenfelter is a shorter read and provides an assessment to help you determine your differences in key areas. Serving with Eyes Wide Open by David Livermore discusses Cultural Intelligence , or CQ, and how short-term missions teams can better prepare for ministry.
