Forming Multicultural Partnerships
Full Product Description
Many of today's Western societies are growing multi-ethnic melting pots, which brings the challenge to the nations of how to help multiple peoples in their midst live in harmony today.
Solutions to the issues of integration and closer relationships between peoples do not occur speedily or naturally, and the same challenges face the Church.
Andy Hardy and Dan Yarnell, both ordained ministers and church planters, bring together years of experience to examine the issues and offer practical applications and theological insights for church planters, church leaders and all involved in missional endeavours in the UK.
"We have been reflecting on how we can plant multicultural churches that represent the goal of the gospel of Christ to unite all peoples, nations and tongues. This is the exciting question we invite readers to think about with us in this book. We want the kingdom of God to come on earth as it is in heaven, with all peoples joined together by the love of the one Lord who welcomes diversity and creativity to become a reality in His multicultural kingdom," said Andy and Dan.
Dr Ash Barker, CEO of Urban Neighbours of Hope, said that if the Christian faith is to be both relevant to this new world and faithful to Jesus, then the plight of millions of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in our midst urgently needs some of our best attention and reflection.
"As Dan and Andy make clear in this compelling book, these are not only challenges of hospitality, but also a challenge to grasp opportunities to be evangelised anew by our new neighbours who have come to live with us in the West. These new neighbours come from the southern nations who were once evangelised by the colonial missionaries from Europe, but now Africans, Asians and South Americans are bringing the gospel back to the nations which once took the gospel to them," said Dr Barker.

"One of the earliest
missionary challenges was the crossing of cultural boundaries ... This
book is a thorough and thoughtful examination of the challenges that
come to us as these themes are confronted. It is a timely and rare
contribution to a growing debate." Rev Dr Martin Robinson, Principal of
Springdale College: Together in Mission, and the CEO of Together in
"Wherever you look, people are on the move searching for a better life ... In this melting pot of humanity, what might church need to look like if it is to be inclusive of many diverse lifestyles and understandings of the gospel? This work offers an insightful analysis of the emerging situation and explores ways in which the church can embrace and celebrate differences while being faithful to the message of Jesus." Dr John Drane, Fellow of St John's College, University of Durham
"With this fascinating book, Andy Hardy and Dan Yarnell have humbly raised up a much-needed voice on a subject of growing concern among missionaries and Christians from the rest of the world, especially those living and serving in the West. Every chapter is filled with powerful insights that, if taken seriously, will make all our work a lot easier." Dr Harvey Kwiyani, founding director of Missio Africanus and author of Sent Forth: African Missionary Work in the West
