With the publication of Ministering Cross-Culturally and Transforming Culture, Sherwood Lingenfelter has established himself as one of the leading evangelical cultural anthropologists. Building on that reputation, in Agents of Transformation he helps both missionaries and church planters become aware of how the gospel cuts across cultural biases. Agents of Transformation is a companion volume to Transforming Culture. Whereas the latter volume provides the theoretical framework for understanding culture, the former offers research tools that will enable missionaries to ascertain their own cultural biases as well as those among whom they are ministering. Lingenfelter urges missionaries to resolve conflicts and develop ministry strategies within the structure of the indigenous culture with a view toward eventually transforming it, without "Westernizing."
