From the Back Cover:

"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

"This unique text will help students understand our increasingly interconnected world, while also giving them the tools to deal with the practical and ethical issues that this world presents. It also gives the reader a glimpse into the lives of a little-known species--the Christian anthropologist."--Michael Jindra, Center for the Study of Religion and Society, University of Notre Dame

"Introducing Cultural Anthropology has much to offer. The chapters on religion and globalization are brilliant and all chapters are informative and challenging. I happily commend this book for use in college classrooms as well as missional training--students and all who anticipate ministry, whatever the context, will benefit."--R. Daniel Shaw, Fuller Graduate School of Intercultural Studies

"This clearly written and well-organized text provides an insightful examination of cultural anthropology in a manner that encourages the integration of faith and learning. This is a needed resource within Christian higher education, and I highly recommend its use in introductory anthropology courses."--Katrina T. Greene, Biola University
