Ministry toward Multiplication in Honor-Shame Cultures

The following is one portion of the Movement Resources listed on this site.

Another recent advance in ministry relates to the difference between collectivistic and the individualistic cultures of Western civilization. Recently several have been exploring how powerfully and directly the honor/shame themes in the Bible speak to cultures where honor and shame are deeper concerns than guilt and innocence.
