I found Nathan Lovell’s three-part series posted on The Briefing blog very helpful.
He explores how eastern and western – Christian and Muslim cultural backgrounds manifest themselves in situations such as the recent waves of riots over the youtube video which portrayed Mohammad.
I believe the points made have implications for individuals and churches involved in cross-cultural work, including partnership with other Christians.
Part 1: Marching for Allah (1): what should we say about the Muslim protests?
Part 2: Marching for Allah (2): alternative rationalities and the cultural value of honour
Part 3: Marching for Allah (3): a clash of rationalities
