Foreign to Familiar is a splendidly written, well- researched work on cultures. Anyone traveling abroad should not leave home without this valuable resource! I highly recommend it as required reading for cross-cultural workers,Sarah Lanier's love and sensitivity for people of all nations will touch your heart. This book creates within us a greater appreciation for our extended families around the world and an increased desire to better serve them. Sarah Lanier is not only a perceptive author, but she has also lived and worked cross culturally worlwide. I have observed Sarah professionally, as a teacher and consultant,on six continents. She has character, insight and experience that qualify her to share intercultural wisdom that will be life-changing for her readers.
