Here is an excerpt (by permission of EMQ and Soojin Chung):
Both theoretical and practical, this well-researched volume is a fine addition to the study of cultures based on honor and shame. It also serves as a practical guide to missionaries, pastors, and lay leaders in providing crucial information regarding cross-cultural communication. What differentiates this book from other anthropological or missiological studies on honor and shame is its direct exegesis on biblical texts. While previous books provided a firm foundation on the culture of honor and shame, the primary source was not the Bible itself. In that regard, Mischke contributes immensely to the field of mission studies and mission practice.
