              Public Policy and Global Change offers an introduction to the study of American public policy and examination of significant issues on the American policy agenda. Unlike most public policy textbooks, it attempts to connect major challenges in American society to global economic, ...environmental, cultural, and political changes. The title is designed to help students understand the forces shaping their lives and American society in an age of globalization. This knowledge is vital for students to practice democratic citizenship: casting informed votes, participating in the nation's political life, and helping others to reach a better understanding of American public policy. While effective as a standalone text, this book is a companion to Dennis Patterson, ed., Readings in American Public Policy. The two books used together offer broad coverage of important issues and a wide range of diverse viewpoints on these issues. The selections in Public Policy and Global Change: - Illustrate globalization's effects on American politics and policy. - Provide a broad spectrum of views on significant policy issues. - Examine the issue of rising inequality.

Furthermore, he has penned an extensive amount of policy-oriented articles and textbook materials for classroom use.

              This revised first edition of Green Like the Sky: Readings in Missionary Anthropology draws from both classic and contemporary sources in missiology and anthropology to create a resource for those preparing for Christian service in cultures other than their own. Designed to prepa...re readers to engage with others in culturally sensitive ways, the book includes both faith-based and secular material. The readings are organized into six sections. Part One addresses cultural anthropology, cultural relativism, and the missionary vocation itself. Part Two discusses definitions and descriptions of culture and worldview. In Part Three readers learn about verbal, non-verbal, and ritual symbol systems. Part Four explores the relationship between God and culture from a biblical perspective. Part Five speaks to the importance of facilitating the identification process from a partnership perspective rather than a paternalistic one. Finally, in Part Six the readings examine questions and controversies regarding contextualization. Intercultural workers of all kinds will benefit from these insights. Green Like the Sky is well-suited to any course in intercultural ministry that brings together the Christian and the secular.
