Cultural Intelligence

Improving Your CQ to Engage Our Multicultural World

This book specifically applies cultural intelligence to leaders working in Christian organizations. Written as an academic textbook, the book draws upon research while still providing practical guidance for how to lead and serve in ministries domestically and around the world with cultural intelligence.

This book applies to cultural intelligence (CQ), to the work of Christian ministry leaders at home and abroad.

The book is replete with assessment tools, simulations, case studies, and reflective exercises. The book is written for Baker’s academic line so there’s a great deal of theoretical material and research but it’s done in an accessible way. Professors and students of missiology, practical theology, ministry leadership, intercultural studies, and sociology in Christian colleges, seminaries, and lay training programs will glean needed knowledge to become culturally sensitive, aware, and intelligent.
