Item description for Serving with Eyes Wide Open: Doing Short-Term Missions with Cultural Intelligence by David A. Livermore...

Prepares participants in international short-term missions projects for effective cross-cultural encounters, raising consciousness to the weaknesses of much of our cross-cultural perspective and practice.

Publishers Description
More than one million people participate in short-term mission projects outside of North America every year--and millions more are involved in domestic cross-cultural missions right here at home. This is encouraging news. But the work is not done. There are weaknesses in our approach and practice. And these volunteers need resources to help them prepare for effective cross-cultural engagement.Serving with Eyes Wide Open helps Christians understand the changing face of Christianity and how that affects short-term missions. In three parts, author David A. Livermore will take a broad look at what the twenty-first-century church is doing on the mission field, the assumptions people make about Christianity, and what it takes to adapt effectively to new cultural contexts. Perfect for all who engage in short-term missions trips--either at home or abroad--Serving with Eyes Wide Open will equip readers to serve more sensitively.

Reviews - What do customers think about Serving with Eyes Wide Open: Doing Short-Term Missions with Cultural Intelligence?

great questions about cultural differences  Dec 14, 2006
I have lived in four different countries and visited many more, but this book really opened my eyes to the ways I could be more sensitive to the cultural differences. I really enjoyed the section where he asked short term missions worker what they thought they had accomplished and compared their answers with with the answers of the people in the country visited. Eye-opening! As so many want to serve abroad, this is a good book to be more thoughtful and more helpful to the places where we go. Marla
