not worth reading  Sep 26, 2007
I had to read this book for a class I am taking. The content starts out good but quickly comes very repetitive. The author seems to have a chip on his shoulder.

The Wolf Shall Dwell With The Lamb: A Spirituality for Leadership in a Multicultural Community, by Eric H.F. Law.

Eric Law delivers a passionate plea for Isaiah's vision of the peaceable realm to be lived out in multicultural community. He writes, "If cultures are analogous to animals then Isaiah 11 becomes a vision of cultures living together in harmony and peace."

Law does an exceptional job unpacking ideas of internal and external culture. External cultural differences are easy to change or coexist with, however, internal differences are like the iceberg under water--daunting, mysterious, and seemingly impossible to challenge. Using a colorblind test as an example of internal culture, Law illustrates how people see things differently. To successfully take our faith across culture, he argues, we must empower, franchise, and equally value the different perceptions. The beginning of the journey across cultures is about listening and paying attention to both answers!

Law gets to the heart of the spirituality required for multicultural leadership by approaching inequality as "power distance." Power distance is the extent to which the less powerful will accept that power is distributed unequally. This becomes a fascinating discussion, complete with graphics and tables of power distances by country. When whites as well as people of color recognize that this power distance exists, the first step towards justice occurs!

Law goes on to teach a new reading on Acts 2, challenging leaders to learn "power analysis"--examining who has the power and who doesn't. Pentecost then becomes not just a miracle of the tongue but also a miracle of the ear. The Holy Spirit gave away power by moving the powerful to a state of listening, though the powerful usually do the talking. And the powerless--those who heard in their native tongues--were enfranchised as they received power through the miracle of tongues. Law purposes that this is the bridge-building normative work of the Holy Spirit. Nonetheless Law warns that if the church truly wants to have that Pentecostal moment, it must value monocultural gatherings, not as a return to segregation but rather because cultures (the powered and the powerless) need to "do their homework before a true Pentecostal encounter can occur."

These three discussions on internal culture, power, and the rethinking of Acts 2 show the reader what is necessary to begin a multicultural church--the Pentecost moment where the wolf lays down with the lamb. This book holds the reader's attention and gives practical insights that are immediately applicable to ministry and leadership development.
Articulates the reality well  Apr 9, 2003
After having worked for 7 years in a foreign country and culture, I experienced a lot of frustration as I met the culture. Law's book is one of the best I've found in helping me see (albeit in hindsight) what was going on. His distinctions were helpful. I recommend this book for people working (or about to work) in a multi-cultural setting. He gives practical suggestions and some helpful theoretical frameworks to assist those who are bewildered (or about to be bewildered!) with an encounter with those of different cultural mindsets. It was just the book I needed to reflect upon my overseas experience.
Great Title - Disappointing Content  Feb 9, 2003
I have attempted to read as many educational resources as possible on the subject of multicultural ministry, because I believe it is vital that Christian leaders in North America become more effective in reaching out to their diverse communities. Thus, I was thrilled to see a book published on "A Spirituality for Leadership in a Multicultural Community." However, upon reading Law's book, I felt that his observations could have been summarized in a few pages. If all you are looking for is a resource that highlights that "whites of Northern European origin - tend to dominate," - then, this is the book for you.
An Essential Asset for Work in Multi-Cultural Communities  Jan 21, 2003
A must read for anyone ministering in a multi-cultural context. Law provides a rationale for tensions between differing cultural groups and techniques to provide a means for greater understanding and communication between groups.
