Item Description...
Overview
America has always been termed a melting pot, but no period in time has approached the current numbers of international travelers and immigrants. In this time of transition to a more multicultural society, it's natural to want not only to build relationships with others, but to di it in a mutually friendly way. Author Patty Lane expounds upon the different worldviews and mindset of "being" and "doing" cultures, explaining how our worldviews allow us to value different things, often causing miscommunication. She explains how promptness and direct conversation may be seen as commendable or rude depending on which culture you're from. Learn to understand and even appreciate situations such as these, as you start learning how to navigate the waters of culture. 206 pages, softcover.

Publishers Description
The global village has arrived. Recent census figures show that communities in the United States are more culturally and ethnically diverse than ever before. And you may be just one of many who find it challenging to build relationships with people from backgrounds unlike your own. How do you befriend an international student or a new coworker from a different country? What can you expect when your church building is shared with a congregation from another cultural group? Why are your words and actions sometimes misinterpreted by others? Crosscultural specialist Patty Lane answers these questions and more. She shows you how to develop hands-on relational skills that build crosscultural friendships. And she provides practical resources to help you navigate multicultural environments with sensitivity and savvy. Filled with vivid stories of real-life situations, her helpful guidebook explains frequently misunderstood aspects of culture, debunks stereotypes and suggests ways to resolve crosscultural conflicts. Above all, Lane demonstrates God's heart for building bridges across cultures and shows how you can reach out to people of every nation, culture and ethnicity. Whether you are actively ministering to people of different cultural backgrounds, traveling to other countries for your business or simply want to make friends across cultural lines, this engaging handbook is a perfect introduction to the journey.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Culture Navigator  Aug 13, 2002
I have been in a dozen intercultural classes in college and graduate level and I would recommend this book for anyone with cultural questions. There are practical questions at the end of each chapter that actually make the reader think and research in their own situation. There is a wide variety of examples used and the book serves as a helpful guide for intercultural interaction. It is easy to read and fun to see how I "should have" related and will in the future.
