Talking about Cultural Diversity in Your Church gives classes, workshops, or small groups the opportunity to discuss issues of multiculturalism. Presenting what culture means in the first part of the book shows how understanding and misunderstandings of culture affect American society. The heart of the book is eleven case studies with discussion questions. These concrete cases allow participants to see about how their understandings of culture have real world implications. And the discussion questions let participants talk in meaningful ways about these difficult issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This workbook on cultural diversity provides a much needed perspective on complex and ever-changing concerns in increasingly pluralist American churches. Michael Angrosino sensitively applies anthropological principles to analyze issues that confront Christianity in contemporary culture: age, class, disability, ethnicity, family, gender, language, power, race, and sexuality. Through a series of well-crafted case studies, complete with presentation, analysis and discussion questions, the author draws readers into participatory interaction by people who desire to live out their Christianity in a diverse society. The book is ideal for consciousness-raising seminars in churches and classes geared for training clergy and laity alike. -- R. Daniel Shaw, (Fuller Theological Seminary)
For groups who use this workbook, there is much to be gained. Religious professionals are not the only audience who stand to benefit...For adult religion classes eager to confront social issues, the workbook offers strong possibilities. Another potential audience for the workbook is America's faith-based colleges and universities. In fact, I am strongly considering it for my own course, Diversity and Inequality, at the Christian liberal arts college where I teach. * Calvin Theological Journal *
