- Examines the key dynamics of honor and shame from a social-science perspective— with examples from Scripture,
- Explores honor and shame as the pivotal cultural value of the Bible, and of most of the Majority World / unreached peoples, and
- Examines applications to cross-cultural ministries and partnerships through understanding the dynamics of honor and shame.
