Recommended Reading: “Cross-Cultural Conflict: Building Relationships for Effective Ministry,” by Duane Elmer

Once again, Elmer has published an excellent book on a very practical cross-cultural issue that we as workers face, as we attempt to relate and understand those from a different culture than our passport culture. 

He shows in this book that knowing how different cultures handle various types of conflict is crucial to effective, culturally appropriate resolution of conflict. Communication in itself is difficult, and when conflict arises, it becomes even more challenging. This book focuses on Asian, Latin American, and African cultures and uses stories from the author’s experience, as well as from others, making this book not just theory, but practical in conflict resolution.
