Product Description
Improving Your CQ to Engage Our Multicultural World Twenty-first-century society is diverse, and Christians must be able to understand other cultures and communicate effectively between and among them. Outreach 2010 Resource of the Year Award Winner

"Written for anyone who is serious about ministry, this book explains why cultural intelligence is essential and what one must do to develop and employ it in the practice of ministry." --Sherwood Lingenfelter, author of Ministering Cross-Culturally

As twenty-first-century society grows increasingly complex, pluralistic, and multicultural, it behooves Christians to communicate effectively between and among diverse populations. Research indicates that missions often fail because of cultural collision and lack of empathy and understanding between different peoples. David Livermore proposes a meta model--based on sound research principles and social science methodology--for helping Christians intelligently navigate the multicultural maze in Cultural Intelligence. The much-needed skill of Cultural Intelligence (CQ) both at home and abroad is the ability to work effectively across national, ethnic, and even organizational cultures. Livermore explains that CQ is not simply learning how to externally modify behavior but is based on inward transformation.

His work is replete with assessment tools, simulations, case studies, and reflective exercises. Professors and students of missiology, practical theology, ministry leadership, intercultural studies, and sociology in Christian colleges, seminaries, and lay training programs will glean needed knowledge to become culturally sensitive, aware, and intelligent

"In our increasingly interconnected, multicultural world, the need for cultural understanding has never been greater. "Cultural Intelligence" is an essential, foundational resource for anyone who desires to effectively interact across cultures. Read this book! It will enable you to understand your own culture and the lens through which you see all other cultures."--Paul Borthwick

In an era of drive-by short term missions, selfish service projects, and ugly Americans, Dave Livermore brings reconstruction. He doesn't merely suggest cultural sensitivity; he helps us deconstruct and build something new--a pathway to cultural intelligence that can guide us be citizens of the Kingdom of God while being proactively engaged as neighbors in the world.--Mark Oestreicher
