In our globalized world, ideas are constantly being exchanged between people of different cultural backgrounds But educators often struggle to adapt to the contexts of diverse learners Some focus so much on content delivery that they overlook crosscultural barriers to effective teaching Educator and missiologist James Plueddemann offers field tested insights for teaching across cultural differences He unpacks how different cultural dynamics may inhibit learning and offers a framework for integrating conceptual ideas into practical experience He provides a model of teaching as pilgrimage, where the aim is not merely the mastery of information but the use of knowledge to foster the development of the pilgrim learner Plueddemann s crosscultural experience shows how teachers can make connections between content and context, bridging truth and life Those who teach in educational institutions, mission organizations, churches, and other ministries will find insights here for transformational crosscultural learning.
