About

What is the role of culture in human experience? This introductory cultural anthropology text helps students understand and discern this crucial issue from a Christian perspective. The book covers standard cultural anthropology topics with special attention given to issues of concern to Christians, such as cultural relativism, evolution, and missions. It offers a fresh, contemporary approach to cultural anthropology, incorporating the most recent theory and language in the discipline.

This concise yet solid introduction represents the authors’ years of experience in the classroom (more than twenty years combined) and fits a variety of courses, including anthropology, sociology, Christian ministries, intercultural studies, and missions. It will also be useful for current or future missionaries. Each chapter includes learning objectives, text boxes, terms, and discussion questions. In addition, plentiful maps, photos, and sidebars are sprinkled throughout the text.
