Whether at home or abroad, communicating with people of other cultures is difficult. It requires new ways of thinking and interpreting the world. When conflict arises, as it often does, the issues become even more confusing. Without a good understanding of how different cultures handle conflict, our best intentions may only make matters worse.With a particular focus on Asian and Hispanic cultures (at home and around the world) and on African culture, Duane Elmer walks readers through various types of conflict and shows how they can be handled effectively and appropriately. Elmer gives numerous stories and examples from his experience and from others' to show how handling conflict well builds solid relationships. With an eye out for biblical principles, he looks at a variety of sticky questions in Scripture. This is a book not just of theory but of practical models of conflict resolution.Pastors, evangelists, businesspeople, missionaries, students--anyone who wants to communicate more effectively with neighbors and colleagues--will find this book immensely helpful.… (mere)

This book was required reading by the mission--to be read before I left for the field (cough cough). I found it to be an outstanding resource for the missionary, or anybody interested in increasing their communication skills in an increasingly multicultural world.

As I was reading it, I had two opportunities to put some of it's principles to practice here in Brazil (ostensibly part of the "two-thirds world" the author constantly refers to). One of these opportunities--involving getting my car out of a city impound--was successful due to the principle of appealing to the sense of shame built into the culture. The other--a conflict with a local airline--is still in process.

Mr. Elmer helped clarify my thinking on a lot of issues. I highly recommend his work.
