Combining rich biblical and historical research with extensive exposure to contemporary Christian communities -- the Catholic Worker, L'Abri, L'Arche, and others -- this book shows how understanding the key features of hospitality can better equip us to faithfully carry out the practical call of the gospel.… (more)

Pohl combines biblical and historical research while looking at contemporary communities, hoping to help readers and small groups make the practice of hospitality a bigger part of their daily lives.

Although somewhat repetitive, this book was still a very important read. I definitely needed to read about many of the things she had to say, because there is much to be learned about shaping your heart in a way that will open yourselves to others and be used to share Jesus with others as well as experience Him at your door. Wonderful words in here. ( )
