"Unlike other human groups which define themselves by a model of kinship, members of the Church belong by virtue of adoption by a God who is free and unconstrained. The authors finds tribalism at work in the Church, a kind of 'old boy's network' which forms its tight-knit boundaries, not by flamboyant and obvious bigotry, but by a coolly argued defence of things as they are. In fact, this is disguised nepotism, a refusal to accept the Church as the adopted people of a generous God, and regarding it instead as a privileged tribe. This book shows in quite practical ways how these hidden assumptions can operate and is a prophetic call to a riskier version of broken boundaries and open acceptance". -- back cover.

In dealing with diversity "Posterski identifies five `types', or ways to respond. We can either attempt to RECLAIM and CONVERT, TRIBALIZE and Confront, ACCOMMODATE and Include, COCOON and Disengage, or COLLABORATE and Recreate. Remaining true to his own convictions, Posterski sorts through the confusion of principles and priorities, and calls all Christians to collaborate in the recreative process of building a society in which all people may participate with integrity" -- back cover.

"What I have attempted to do in this book us to begin the dialogue and theological reflection on what it means, spiritually and practically, to be a leader in a multicultural community.

It grows out of research I have done with colleagues in three multicultural congregations and observations from visits in many more". -- Intro. p. [ix].

"The Anglican Parish of St. Theodore of Canterbury is situated in a multicultural neighbourhood in Toronto, where the Christian population is a decided minority. Interfaith experiences have a significant impact on the Christian praxis of parishioners. Yet the subject has not received much attention in the course of the Church's teaching. Out of personal background and as the parish priest, the author undertook to find out what would happen if parishioners' interfaith experiences were discussed intentionally with the benefit of formal theological thinking. The theoretical framework operative in the thesis revolves around the spectrum represented by exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism". -- Abstract, p. vii.

"Inclusion and diversity are words that are used frequently these days. Although much material justifies our being inclusive and appreciating diversity, there is a lack of resources and training in practical, theologically based approaches to enabling a community to act inclusively when its boundary is challenged. Church leaders, both experienced and new, often discover that good intention is not enough to create an inclusive community. This book seeks to fill this gap by providing practical and theologically sound theories, models, and skills that are necessary for moving a faith community toward greater inclusion". -- Intro. p. xi.

This book "comes out of four lectures delivered in November 1998 at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, under the auspices of the Institute of Contemporary Christianity. The London Lectures in Contemporary Christianity are an annual series founded in 1974 to promote Christian thought on contemporary issues" -- Preface, p. 11.
"The Christian encounter with other faiths, `religious' or `secular', brings both enrichment and conflict. We have seen that to be a Christian is to indwell a particular story, embedded in historical event and borne by a global community, whose distinctiveness is disclosed in engagement with rival stories. The Christian needs the `other' in order to learn that story rightly. Evangelism, whenever authentic, is discovery as well as witness. But conflict and suffering have always accompanied faithful gospel witness, not least because the gospel message relativizes all human authority-claims (whether of Brahmans or parliaments), and conversion to Christ leads to new social and political alignments. Persecution of Christians is more commonplace today than it has ever been since the first few centuries of the Christian era" -- Epilogue, p. 167.
"America is set on a multicultural future as it approaches the next century and millennium. The question and focus for the church is whether it will be inclusive or exclusive of the diversity of people existing in communities that populate any given diocese. If the church fails to be inclusive, it will shift toward being a cultural enclave with little relevance to the surrounding world. .... This resource on cultural sensitivity is meant to be just that: a resource to assist bishops, Commission on Ministry and Standing Committees in their servanthood of discernment and support for the future ministry of the church" -- Intro. p. 1.

This book "is a compilation of liturgies, litanies and prayers gathered from around the world church. The material has been constructed so that it can be used as part of a church's Sunday worship, either instead of the usual service or as part of it. There are worship services or litanies for most of the church's year; eucharists; and services which will help people to consider specific issues. Sometimes it will be appropriate to use the whole of a service, at others it will be most sensible to use some of the prayers and music. In most cases each service is a compilation of material from different parts of the world, but sometimes everything comes from one culture". -- Intro., p. v.
