Clearly exposits the biblical imperatives for hospitality and shows the amazing power that genuine hospitality offers.

Hospitality may well be the best means we have to promote close, brotherly love. It is certainly a crucial element in building Christian community. And it is especially important in churches where people really don't know each other or where relationships are superficial, Sunday-morning-only relationships.

Hospitality is an effective tool for evangelism. Showing Christ's love to others in a home environment may be the only means Christians have to reach their neighbors for Christ. A Christian home can be a lighthouse for God in a spiritually dark neighborhood.

Hospitality is a great way to serve the Lord's people and for Christians to use their spiritual gifts. By opening their homes, Christians can discover a practical and effective means of serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hospitality is a biblical command. Many Christians do not realize what the New testament teaches about hospitality and what it can do for the local church. This booklet hopes to reverse that.

Mystie Winckler of WA, 10/11/2011
This is a very brief book, much more a launching pad for discussion than a discussion itself. Strauch proves from Scripture that hospitality — opening up one’s house primarily to brothers and sisters in Christ, but also to the needy and one’s neighbors — is an essential to the Christian life and community. It is not a nice thing for some people, but it is a requirement for everyone.

The back of the book lists discussion questions to explore the topic further in a group study setting. With only 5 short chapters and many potential avenues for discussion (rather than just “comprehension questions”), this would make a great small group study.
