Excerpt


In Come On In, Lisa Bogart helps women recognize and embrace the impacting gift of hospitality. Through fun and creative ideas, delicious recipes, and helpful insights, she offers women ways to use this talent to share the love and grace of Christ. She addresses the misconception that a great hostess requires perfect housekeeping, gourmet cooking, or extravagant party planning. Instead, she affirms that hospitality's major components include a servant's heart, a listening ear, and a gracious touch. From opening one's home to others to taking hospitality on the road, Bogart gives women a cornucopia of options and even organizes them into "simple ways" for low key fun, "special ways" for times that deserve a little more effort, and "sumptuous ways" for times that call for extravagance. Seasoned and hesitant hostesses alike will gain insight, ideas, tips, and tricks to inspire them to welcome hospitality with possibility and passion---no longer seeing it as a hassle---and eagerly look for opportunities to extend the invitation to "Come on in!"

Excerpt


As Christians, hospitality and the Gospel should go hand-in-hand. While we must speak the words of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we must not live like hypocrites and thus make our words impotent. Bypassing simple modern applications of hospitality, Amy Oden goes to its root to show how hospitality ultimately finds its basis in God. When we welcome others we extend God's welcome, and, as salvation is intrinsic in God's welcome, it must be part of our hospitality. By studying the early church's method we can gain a better understanding of what hospitality was designed to be within Christian settings, and then be able to truly extend God's welcome to those who need it the most. Group study exercises are included at the back of the book to facilitate use in small groups and churches.
