I've been on InterVarsity staff working with internationals and have taught ESL with immigrants. My Ph.D. from Northwestern University in Evanston is on International Identity Issues. Bicultural Identity is something most internationals deal with. My new book is entitled Of Bananas and Hard-boiled Eggs, Thriving in a Foreign Culture through the Journey toward Biculturalism. The title of the book is what a Chinese international student said to me in a session when I was teaching at Urbana.
I would like to share news of this book with the whole Discipleship Network so they can use it in their work cross-culturally. My website is www.maryloucodmanwilson.com
and you can find more information about it there.
Originating with my work with the Lifelong Learning Center at TEAM Missions, I also write weekly book reviews in the areas of Global Concerns, Missions, Discipleship and Spiritual Formation which can be found on my blog: marylousreviews.blogspot.com
. I think this would be a great resource as well for members of the Discipleship Network.
