Intercultural Sourcebook Vol 1
By Monica Mumford, Sandie Fowler
Nothing could be more timely than the publication of this revised edition of the Intercultural Sourcebook. The 1979 edition reflected the new field of cross-cultural training, at that time searching for focus and direction. This new edition embodies the progress made in that search, systematically defining the field's parameters and offering concrete examples of the methods and techniques currently employed by its practitioners. Intercultural Sourcebook will be a "must have" not only for educators and trainers concerned with intercultural learning or the development of cross-cultural skills, but for anyone who wishes to comprehend fully what these processes involve. Comprehensive in scope, the book examines both the principal methods used in cross-cultural training and a selection of specialized techniques and instructional devices. In this, the first of a two-volume set, six methods are examined in twenty articles: role plays, contrast-culture training, simulation games, critical incidents, the cultural assimilator, and case studies. In each, a lead article traces the development and use of the particular method; several articles then offer specific applications. Intercultural Sourcebook provides both a framework for conceptualizing the training methods covered and resources for applying them in one's own work. Each article is written by an experienced trainer; in fact, the author list comprises the core of a who's who in the field. Thorough, practical, and enlightening, this book will define the field for years to come.
The Impact of God
By Iain Matthew
St John of the Cross testifies to a God who longs to meet us in our deepest need. Whilst rejection and imprisonment played their part in the life of this sixteenth-century Spanish friar, John's poetry and prose reveal the beauty and power of a wondrous God. It gives us courage to believe in the possibility of change in our own lives, however unlikely or impossible this may seem. Father Iain Matthew uses this classic inspirational Christian writing as his starting point, and offers five interpretations which make its richness relevant to the modern reader.

'Dodging the vested interests of the Ngwenya clan, his wayward wife Magdan and the colonial dinosaur Jumbo Munroe, the narrator embarks on a quasi-biblical quest that owes more to Waugh and Ballard than Rider Haggard, a tale that hits the ground running and continues at a vigorous pace. This is one of the shrewdest and most diverting novels about Africa one could hope to read.' DAILY TELEGRAPHThe Narrator of this immaculately written book is a journalist and film-maker investigating the disappearance of his father in Africa in 1959 while on a trip for National Geographic in the company of the lovestruck Mrs de Luth. Certain of the locals belief he is still alive somewhere in the mountainous interior, having been adopted by the Ofreo tribe, a strange and venerable caste of master-craftsmen

In the Beginning
By Alister McGrath
The King James Bible was a landmark in the history of the English language, and an inspiration to poets, dramatists, artists and politicians. Without the King James Bible there would have been no Paradise Lost, no Pilgrim's Progress, no Handel's Messiah. Yet more than a literary, even more than a religious influence, it was seen as a social, economic and political text. Those seeking to overthrow the English monarchy and those wanting to retain it, both sought support from the same Bible. So how did this remarkable translation come to be written? To answer this question is to throw open the doors of a world which was being transformed by the new technology of printing. In reading about the greatest English text ever produced we must close our eyes to our own world in which books are plentiful and readily available and enter another, very different universe...
