Reviews

"Whether you sit in the pews or stand in the pulpit of your church, Safwat Marzouk introduces you to all the sojourners and settlers who inhabit the Bible. He creates a compelling proposal for the intercultural church--profound, provocative, and practical: a must-read in our politically polarized times." --Ulrich Schmiedel, University of Edinburgh

"Immigrants and refugees bring fresh ideas and new ways of living that enrich our communities. Still, challenges arise as ethnicities, languages, and cultures collide. In such times, how do churches flourish in their witness to Jesus Christ? In Intercultural Church, Safwat Marzouk points toward intercultural ministry as the answer. He shows how an intercultural church worships and welcomes to become a church for today and for the future. Marzouk calls us to embrace diversity fully in order to become the prophetic church and the body of Christ. This is an important book for those who love the church and wish to engage in a living ministry." --Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Earlham School of Religion

"In Intercultural Church, Safwat Marzouk calls the church to a posture of resistance against theologies and politics that suggest that there is not enough to go around by casting biblical visions of migration's centrality in Christian faith. This compelling book points followers of Jesus to a more abundant and graceful conviction: God's hopes for us, the path of the migrant, and the church's future are intertwined." --Eric Daniel Barreto, Princeton Theological Seminary
