Extraordinary Hospitality (for Ordinary People): Seven Ways to Welcome Like Jesus [9781784985745]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Generous hospitality is a significant way in which God works through our lives to bring life to others, yet many of us feel ill-equipped and overwhelmed at the prospect, especially if we don’t have big houses and we are not wonderful cooks!

Carolyn Lacey encourages us to focus on the goal of hospitality, which is to reflect God’s welcoming heart, and shows us how we can all do that, regardless of our bank balance or living situation.

She explores seven ways in which we can reflect God’s character in the way we welcome others into our homes and into our lives, and so point people ultimately to Christ.

This practical and realistic book explores how to make generous hospitality part of everyday life without becoming exhausted and overburdened.

 

From the back cover:

All followers of Jesus are called to be hospitable. Yet all this can seem like an overwhelming burden - requiring expense, exhaustion and even a change of personality.

It's time to look at hospitality in a different way.

This book is an invitation to a journey. You won't need a large house or a dining table that seats eight. You won't need a big food budget or lots of free time. You won't even need to be especially outgoing or confident.

You'll just need a delight in God's welcome and a willingness to take up his invitation to reflect him - in ordinary places, to ordinary people. Because then you can expect him to do extraordinary things.

 

"A warm and insightful book on a vital biblical theme" - Paul Mallard

"Walk away encouraged and convicted, and with practical insight into how to live out a life of welcome" - Courtney Reissig
