Product Description

The author encourages us to view hospitality as the intersection between the private and the public, to embrace it as a breaking down of boundaries.

Throughout these pages, he looks at theological and pastoral implications of living the biblical command to be hospitable to the stranger. One the one hand, we will see that concern for the stranger is the pattern for Christian social interaction. On the other, we will come to view hospitality as the challenge to see the stranger in the same way in which Christ saw the stranger - as brother or sister - and to act accordingly.

Publisher's Description

The third book in Wicks' new series looks at the theological and pastoral implications of living the biblical command to be hospitable to the stranger. On the theological level, the book offers concern for the stranger as a pattern for Christian social action. On the pastoral level, the book challenges all Christians to see the stranger the way Christ saw the stranger -- and to act accordingly. The central image of Christian hospitality is the Kingdom of God, which is addressed mainly to the poor and the displaced. As a verb and not a noun, the Kingdom of God actively counters today's suspicion, selfishness, and aggression.
