About-

At a time when more and more Christians are coming across people from different cultural backgrounds this book addresses a number of important questions. How do we understand what culture is all about? How do we reach out to people from different cultures? What impact does culture have on “making disciples”? What impact does culture have on the local church?



This book seeks to address and answer these questions – it is relevant to all Christians including those who are members or leaders of local churches who want to reach out to their neighbours and encourage them to be part of the church as well. It would also be useful for those about to engage in mission in a new culture.

Endorsements & Reviews-

This book is, therefore, useful for missionaries, evangelists, tent-makers, theological educators and church leaders. It is in fact useful for all Christians living in a world where local realities are no longer mono-cultural.

Dr. Robert Solomon (formerly Bishop of the Methodist Church of Singapore)



Kirk The 21st century has introduced new challenges for communicating the gospel particularly in burgeoning places of urbanization on all continents especially in Asia. Therefore the reflections, examples, and missiological foundations presented from a variety of authors will be helpful to anyone called to minister in similar situations.

Franklin, Executive Director, Wycliffe Global Alliance



In recent years the subject of contextualisation has been a prominent topic among mission workers and missiologists. The debate has focused on how far we can go in contextualising the Gospel. I welcome OMF's commitment to this important subject with the publication of Ministry Across Cultures: Sharing the Christian Faith in Asia.

Malcolm McGregor, former SIM International Director, 2003 to 2013



The issue of contextualization lies at the heart of mission in every situation without exception. I rejoice therefore in this book as a significant contribution to this debate. It is my prayer that God’s people in every continent and country may be encouraged in the application of contextualization principles both personally and in their church.

Martin Goldsmith, Author and Associate Lecturer All Nations Christian College, Ware, UK
