Publishers Description Best-selling author Eric Law shows how to work with the dynamics of diverse cultures to create a truly inclusive community. In his widely acclaimed The Wolf Shall Dwell with the Lamb, Eric H. F. Law explores the dynamics of multicultural misunderstandings and how different cultures perceive and use power. Here he shows how to work with those dynamics to create a truly inclusive community. Using Exodus 3 as a theological starting point, Law explains in detail how leaders can: - understand and resolve difference in communication styles - recognize and avoid the "Golden Calf Syndrome" - reconcile high-context and low-content elements in the group - use mutual invitation - build dialogue through liturgy Following Law's practical guidelines, we can, in the end, build multicultural structures everyone can live and thrive in.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Bush Was Blazing but Not Consumed: Developing a Multicultural Community Through Dialogue and Liturgy?
A Very Good Volume 2 Mar 12, 2003
A great follow up to Rev. Law's first book, "The Wolf Shall Dwell With The Lamb." Highly recommended for people who work in a multi-racial faith community.
Valuable Aid to Those Working in Multi-cultural Communities Jan 21, 2003
A follow-up to the author's "The Wolf Shall Dwell With the Lamb" this volume picks up on the earlier work and presents helpful techniques for those who work with peoples from varying cultural backgrounds, particularly when there is conflict or misunderstanding between groups. An earlier review is apparently written by a reader who assumes that anyone who has a differing background is inferior -- this is exactly the mindset that is counter-productive when working among diverse cultures. I would highly recommend the readers begin with the earlier work as it is referenced extensively in this volume.
