Publisher's Description

Jesus used simple hospitality and meal time conversations to share some of the most profound truths of the gospel. We can follow his example.

...a thoughtful and biblical explanation of the value of hospitality and the importance of 'table grace'. The relevant questions that conclude each chapter help the reader understand why meals with meaning matter. We warmly commend this timely book. Ian and Ruth Coffey
A biblical tapestry of hospitality, revealing its connection to worship, prayer, and the renewal of the church today. A wonderful introduction to a major theme of Scripture. Readable, wise, and engaging. Timothy and Denise George

Publisher's Weekly

In this exploration of Christian hospitality, Beeson Divinity School professor Webster (Second Thoughts for Skeptics) discusses sharing meals as an important component of living the Christian life. For Webster, hospitality includes expectant waiting; openness to possibility; willingness to be interrupted; trust; eager attentiveness to the guest; and the inclusion of marginalized people at the table. True to the adage that the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach, the book moves from physical hospitality to the centrality of Jesus Christ, “the Bread of Life,” who is “far more important than food.” Webster does a good job of focusing on Bible stories that depict eating together and at offering discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Some may be made uneasy by his caricatures of Pharisees. Some may be motivated to change by a message that attempts to prod people—especially consumer-oriented suburbanites—out of their complacency. Others will relish Webster’s meat and potatoes fare of traditional evangelical theology. (Jan.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
