The face of the church in America is changing as the United States is fast becoming the world's first truly multicultural society. More than 1 million immigrants come to the United States each year, creating a mixture of cultures that presents unique challenges and unprecedented opporturnities for ministry. Until recently, the Church has been divided into the sending church and the receiving church, according to Tom Nees. "American Christians did evangelism at home and missions abroad," he writes. "The stereotypical missionary is an American who crosses an ocean or border, learns another language, adapts to a foreign culture, introduces the gospel, and plants a church..."
Not any more. And there can be no retreat or standing still for those who wish to make the gospel relevant to the changing face of the church. Pastors and laypersons alike will find this book a clear call to action in reaching an ever-changing society with the changeless message of Jesus Christ.
