The Gospel Comes with a House Key
The Gospel Comes with a House Key: Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in Our Post-Christian World | Rosaria Butterfield
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 Gods 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 liveshelping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

The most impactful part of this book is the first 50 pages, which I'm sure I'll return to in the future. This really is not a theological book regarding the art of hospitality with practical advice, but rather, a memoir with lots of personal anecdotes on beans in crock-pots, descriptions of lengthy dinners, and tales of dogs and cats misbehaving. The first bit was overwhelmingly good - the rest, underwhelming in almost every way.

As a stay at home mother of three, I sometimes listen to the world a little more than I should. It tells me I don‘t measure up to the strong “career” women my age. When the world and those around me get me down, my husband so sweetly reminds me of this quote from C.S. Lewis.

“The homemaker has the ultimate career; All the other careers exist for one purpose only, and that is to support the ultimate career”

“Knowing your personality and your sensitivities does not excuse you from ministry. It means that you need to prepare for it differently than others might.”

Such a great book recommended by a great friend. I am inspired to live this way - sharing the gospel through radically, ordinary hospitality!

Rosaria‘s lifestyle of lavish hospitality kicked down the doors in my own heart. In an age of epidemic loneliness, with so many families broken and dysfunctional, welcoming people into our homes is good medicine for souls. Hospitality is something we take with us, a heart cultivated with tenderness toward neighbors, the stranger, the prisoner, the sick, and children who need a forever home or just a stop-gap. Read in a stimulating book study.

This book has changed my life in every area. Rosaria lives a radical lifestyle unapologestocally and with conviction. The principles are biblical and for everyone even if the practicalities are not. Reading it for the 3rd time of many.
