"Howell and Paris have done us a huge favor. Their timely Introducing Christian Anthropology will be a tremendous help to Christian educators and students alike. This textbook covers a comprehensive spectrum of contemporary anthropological topics ranging from conceptual considerations of 'culture' to concrete examinations of power structures, and it does so in an attractive and understandable format that will facilitate fruitful learning."--J. Nelson Jennings, Covenant Theological Seminary; editor, Missiology
"This engagingly written book is the most up-to-date introduction to cultural anthropology for Christians currently available. The authors summarize contemporary social theory and offer their own research and experiences on the field as an invitation to see the world anthropologically. Readers are helped to reflect on biblical themes in the light of anthropological realities and are encouraged to apply what they learn to a wide variety of work and ministry settings around the world."--Robert J. Priest, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
