Review: Cross-Cultural Servanthood: Serving the World in Christlike Humility

Cross-Cultural Servanthood: Serving the World in Christ like Humility Duane Elmer (IVP Books; 2006)

Reviewed by CMS missionary Roger Kay (serving in Ethiopia)

Those involved in cross-cultural ministry are called to follow Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve. But serving with Christ-like humility is not always easy. Our attitudes and actions, can (often unwittingly), cause offence and create barriers rather than bridges.

Drawing from biblical models and the author’s extensive cross-cultural experience, this book will provide great preparation for anyone considering cross-cultural ministry. It also offers a helpful, if at times confronting, reality check for experienced cross-cultural workers.
