Product Description

Sarah Lanier (auteur)

A guide to understanding Hot- and Cold-Climate Cultures. An exellent Cross-Cultural understanding. Foreign to Familiar is a splendidly written, well researched work on cultures. Anyone traveling abroad should not leave home without this valuable resource! Sarah’s love and sensitivity for people of all nations will touch your heart.  If the world were roughly divided into “hot climate” and “cold climate” cultures, what could one half of humankind learn from the other? Lanier—the daughter of missionaries and an experienced world traveler—writes insightfully on topics including relationship vs. task orientation; direct vs. indirect communication; individualism vs. group identity; and different concepts of hospitality. Whether you are a cross-cultural worker or simply live in a cross-cultural neighborhood, you’ll find this book to be a valuable resource for understanding and relating to others from a different “climate”. This book creates within us a greater appreciation for our extended families around the world and an increased desire to better understand them.

review for Foreign to Familiar

  1. Waardering 5 uit 5



    Sarah Lanier is not only a perceptive author, but she has also lived and worked cross culturally worldwide. I have observed Sarah professionally, as a teacher and consultant, on six continents. She has character, insight and experience that qualify her to share intercultural wisdom that will be live-changing for her readers. –Loren cunningham, President University of the Nations –Loren Cunningham

    The “Foreign” in the title of this most-helpful book once meant people and culters “overseas”. Today that has all changed. Sarah Lanier has captured the keys to understanding our own–and other’s–way of doing and saying things. I guarantee that if you follow the principles in this book that the boundaries of your world view will expand. –Peter Jordon
