Intercultural Discipleship: Learning from Global Approaches to Spiritual Formation

Product Description


"Intercultural Discipleship offers a treasure trove of perceptive insights and practical suggestions for effective discipling across cultures. Jay writes for the practitioner, but does so in a way that is anchored in a solid theoretical framework. Rather than offering quick fixes or simplistic solutions, he welcomes the reader into a communal process for the purpose of contextualizing discipleship. No cross-cultural worker should be without this book!" -- Gregg A. Okesson, E. Stanley Jones School of World Mission and Evangelism, Asbury Theological Seminary

"The cry for better discipleship methods is heard around the globe, but most methods take a fill-in-the-blank approach. Intercultural Discipleship charts a comprehensive and creative way forward like no other book in the field. I believe it will soon become a classic text in the discipleship literature." -- Darrell Whiteman, publisher, American Society of Missiology

"Passionate, penetrating, participatory, and persuasive. Intercultural discipleship at its best." -- Tom Steffen, Cook School of Intercultural Studies, Biola University "A rare treasure of a book. Moon has spooled together a rich global landscape of why discipleship works, and includes the practices of symbols, rituals, proverbs, stories, music, and drama. With joy, I highly recommend your attention to Intercultural Discipleship." -- Samuel E. Chiang, president and CEO, Seed Company

"A very readable and resourceful guide to making disciples. Moon makes creative use of provocative stories, lively illustrations, and case studies gleaned from years spent on the mission field, in the classroom, and among those of diverse cultures, learning preferences, and contexts. This book will give students of contextual mission foundational information and hands-on activities for wise discipleship in any culture." -- Bonnie Sue Lewis, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary

"A resourceful pathway for deep learning and transformative growth for all teachers and students of culture, change agents, and hermeneutical communities interested in creative discipleship approaches that foster radical inclusion and participation in mission." -- Uday Mark Balasundaram, founder, Estuary Cultures and Order of Bezalel

"If this book gets the reading it deserves, we are at the dawning of a great new day for making disciples, and not just overseas." -- Stan Nussbaum, developer, SYNC Discipleship Program
