Incarnational Ministry describes the social-cultural settings of bands, tribes, peasantry, and urbanites. While urging planners not to use these general categories as simplistic pigeonholes, the authors show that the identifying distinctive styles of social interaction can guide church planters toward openness in a community. Charts and study data help explain class structures and social characteristics. Particular attention is paid to city-dwellers since much evangelism now targets this group. For each societal setting planners receive important information about moral norms and potential social problems to expect as they carry out their ministries.

The late Paul G. Hiebert (1932-2007) was distinguished professor of mission and anthropology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and previously taught at Fuller Theological Seminary. He also served as a pastor and missionary to India. He received his PhD from the University of Minnesota and was the author or co-author of numerous articles and books in the fields of anthropology and missions.
