God’s Image And Global Cultures Trailer


I wrote God’s image and global cultures
because I noticed that Christians are often engaged in cultural life, politics, business activities. But they often don’t know how to connect these to their
Christian faith so they end up feeling a bit guilty as if their cultural life
doesn’t have to do with their Christian life. Christians are called to love God and
enjoy Him forever. And it turns out you can actually only do that through cultural
activity: through creating and loving and communicating and even ruling and those
are fundamentally with culture is about. So bearing God’s image is functionally
about doing the same sort of cultural activities that God does: creating ruling loving and
communicating. And we can only really engage in enjoying God forever when we are
doing cultural activities like worshiping, communicating, dancing singing. Globalization has raised a number of
questions for Christians in the 21st century: Does God approve of one culture
more than another? Why are cultures so different? Why did God create culture in the first place? Is culture good or bad? and are there such thing as cultural
universals? What Christians do about multiculturalism and diversity and
outsourcing? Is it possible to be counter cultural? Or to not engage in
culture at all? What’s the value of culture in the first place? I show that while the cross-cultural process can be confusing
and frustrating, in the end it creates better products and better relationships. Being
a world changer means being able to evaluate cultural systems without being
ethnocentric on the one hand or giving in to philosophical relativism on the other. I hope that as you interact with the
ideas in the book you’ll be more comfortable with your role as Christian in the wider culture, and ultimately be positioned to be a world changer.
