Book Overview

Winner of the 2019 Christianity Today Book Award in the Christian Living & Discipleship Category

This book is going to shake us all up in the most wonderfully destabilizing way. --Ray Ortlund, Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same radical, ordinary hospitality to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives--helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

   The power of God in a life commuted to HIM
It will be a witnessing tool for many who think they are born gay or lesbian. The power of God to change a person's life.

   Every Christian should read
The book is a challenging and encouraging read, Levine said. This is an eye-opener to practical application of being more like Jesus, he said.

   Review
The book was well written, but book had many distracting pencil notations and underlined phrases throughout.

   EXCELLENT! MUST READ!
We live in a world where people love themselves most and free everyone else, he said. You can stop being a gargoyle and read this book, love your neighbor well.

   Page turner
I'm excited to read more, said Janet. This book is convicting, but it's concept is doable, he said. I hope to make a step in the direction of hospitality and warmth for the gospel, he said.

   One of the best books I've read
One of my all time favorite books of all time. It's great to have friends and family who support me.

   I thought this was about Christian hospitality
Instead of a book that focuses on the author's supposed lesbian past and how she transformed into this picture perfect emblem of a Christian wife, I get a book that focuses far too much on the author's purported bisexual past and how she came to be the perfect Christian wife. I also didn't appreciate the politics of the moment when the author suggests that voting for marriage equality does our LGBTQ+ friends a disservice.
 
5
   From The Heart of the Gospel
He also said that the Lord's work was "very convicting and humbling," leading to "joyous repentance." Rosaria offers a personal and effective provocation to love and the good deed of open hospitality, she said.

   Worth more than its weight in gold!
My husband read this and I'm half way through it, and this book is worth more than it's weight in gold! It has already changed our lives and our family, Tunick said. In her testimony, Rosaria says she couldn't save anyone. He also said that Jesus alone saves and I do not show up. Show up early, we must! We have a neighborhood dinner this weekend and we haven't made it to one before but we'll be there this weekend! In her book, Rosaria shares her life's journey with us through the lens of her family.

   I appreciate: 1. When a book helps me ...
Thanks for the support. He said he couldn't put his finger on why a book helped him interpret passages from Scripture. Rosaria did that to two masters of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics: Hernan Cortes in "The Lord's Landing" and Hosmer Solomon in "The Odyssey." And when a book makes me want to read the Bible more, I'll do it. There are three main reasons people come to Columbine: 1) They are scared; 2) They are trying to kill themselves. I can't put it down, Gillian said on NBC's "Meet the Press." The other four were: "Errors 4.0," "Midday," "Apollo 11" and "Don't Ask." I'm drawn to the innocence of a book, even if it means serving time in prison. Bravo!
