Cross-Cultural Marriages and the Church: Living the Global Neighborhood
Cross-Cultural Marriages and the Church: Living the Global Neighborhood

As the number of cross-cultural and interracial marriages in our society grows, our faith communities find they are welcoming into their midst an increasing number of those who are marrying across the traditional barriers of race, language and ethnicity. Such couples inevitably face unique hurdles as they try to forge family systems that function even though they come from disparate backgrounds, and in many cases, have dissimilar expectations of what marriage and family should be. Dr. J. Lawrence Driskill has done a masterful job interviewing and writing up the case histories of 20 cross-cultural couples with church connections. He candidly observes where the largest obstacles have been found and then points out what the church can do to help these families resolve conflicts and establish happy homes. The success stories included highlights of what has worked (concretely) for the various ones whose stories are told here. Specific guidelines are spelled out for those who would minister to the cross-cultural marriages in their own church. 114 pp.

Dr. Fred Prinzing, dean of Bethel Theological Seminary has said, "This book makes a positive contribution to all those involved in an interracial relationship. It's refreshiing to hear the stories of those who have struggled with the obstacles. Everyone seems to have an opinion on the subject of interracial marriage. Many people, however, have never bothered to ask the couples who are the most qualified to discuss the subject. In a sensitive and skillful manner, Driskill interacts with interracial couples about the joys and pains of their relationship. Reading these touching stories will enhance the reader's insight into a subject society can no longer avoid."

Dr. J. LAWRENCE DRISKILL and his family served as missionaries to Japan for over two decades. On returning to the States he has served in Japanese-American congregations preaching in both English and Japanese. He is retired and living in Southern California.
