The aim of this study is to help missionaries and other religious workers better understand the obstacles they encounter, as well as the opportunities they can exploit, in cultural settings to which the Church has recently been introduced. The missionary religions face the problem of communicating to people of other cultures the sets of meanings which define each institution’s character and purpose. The author in this book applies some of the insights of social and cultural anthropology to assist in understanding the cultural processes underlying thus problem. The insights the author offers may help anticipate problems arising because of cultural assumption in cultures which the Church is trying to enter for the first time.
