Recently I have had a couple of church leaders ask about small group materials for my book Not Like Me: A Field Guide For Influencing a Diverse World. The book is all about overcoming stereotypes and loving and even reaching people with whom we disagree, dislike, or distrust.
Not Like Me helps people of faith effectively love, serve, and reach people overlooked by the church. http://notlikeme.org includes small group materials, articles, assessments, and videos.
Here’s a Sneak Peek:
Introduction – The Art of Woo: Overcoming the Christian Stereotype
Chapter 1 – Curry Favor: Winning People and Influencing Friends
Chapter 3 – Peppermint-Filled Pinatas: Partying to Expand Your Influence (from the original version)
Chapter 9 – “Lots of Sex in the City: Engaging Others in a Post-Sexual Revolution World” Field Notes by Ed Stetzer
Chapter 10 – The Mosque Next Door: Building Relationships with the Religious (audio version)
