- This link is a fairly accessible book list on the topic of honor and shame and following are very brief comments from me: http://honorshame.com/recommendations/
- 1) “The 3D Gospel”- this is the shortest and most accessible book, so I’d start here, or it’s predecessor, “Honor and Shame: Unlockin the Door” which is the first book under “Further books…”
- 2) “Ministering in HONOR-SHAME cultures…” is the next book I’d get. It’s one of the first, if not the first biblical narrative from an honor-shame perspective. I wrote a post on this here.
- 3) “Shame Interrupted” I have, but not finished.
- 4) “The Global Gospel” – I’d read this AFTER “Ministering….”
- Here is a very personal, 5-star articulate book that describes a lot of my experience serving with Cru as an ethnic minority written by a former colleague. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G3BH3J4/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1
- Regarding Support Raising. Coming up in the next two weeks, an excerpt from my latest book on support-raising from an ethnic minority perspective. (you’ll have to subscribe to get notification.
