Personal interactionùcontactùwith those different from ourselves provides us with new understandings, greater respect, and reduced prejudices toward others. We should not only be driven to come into contact with others for the purposes of understanding and reconciliation, but as Christians, we are obliged to come into contact with others not despiteùbut because ofùwho they are, where they come from, what they look like, or any perceptions we may have about them, because Jesus has come into unconditional contact with us.Providing understanding of what contact is and how it looks, author Tyler White takes the reader through an examination of the current cultural climateùfocusing on the state of communication, biblical and theological themes of contact, the relevancy and vitality of cultural competency and orientation, personal stories and case studies of people who have experienced successful contact.The social theory that is discussed in this book, contact theory, has been thoroughly researched in academic and other scholarly settings, however very little analysis, if any, has been conducted in the sphere of Christian community. Contact examines what it would look like to apply contact theory in the lives of Christians in a practical accessible way.
