With the story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the Gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own but as God’s 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 lives - helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

If you want to feel good about your current Christian walk and who you are, do not bother listening to this book, but if you are interested in being convicted of the shallowness of your “Christian” hospitality, by all means listen to this excellent book. While I don’t necessarily agree with every aspect of her focus of hospitality , I feel like true Christian hospitality has been a lost art and Mrs. Butterfield has done an excellent job in describing and putting into action what it truly is. In today’s world, the hospitality at the Butterfield’s house is shocking, but if Christians, myself included, practiced what the Bible teaches, it would certainly be ordinary. Prepare yourself to either be incensed with her “out of this world” demands or to come out with a new vision and purpose in serving the LORD through hospitality.
