Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. —Hebrews 13:2
Welcoming others is a cornerstone of godly behavior, and scripture calls all believers to the practice of hospitality. But sometimes we feel inadequate to this task. Does welcoming strangers require a beautiful home, gourmet food, and expensive gifts? Sometimes we worry that what we have to offer isn't enough.
In Practicing Hospitality: The Joy of Serving Others, Pat Ennis and Lisa Tatlock describe the theological and practical aspects of providing hospitality to guests and strangers. They examine the scriptural basis of God's plan for hospitality and the process of developing the Christian character necessary to practice it generously and creatively. Knowing that hospitality to guests and strangers originates in a well-ordered home, the authors also discuss biblical principles of home and family which build a strong foundation for extending welcome to those outside the family—from friends and guests all the way to strangers, travelers, and people from other cultures. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and Bible studies, as well as practical tips, recipes, and other creative projects that offers every reader the opportunity to personally apply the book's content.
Practicing Hospitality is a valuable tool for new homemakers, as well as experienced practitioners of hospitality—and for anyone who wants guidance, inspiration, and insight into the process of welcoming others. The authors guide readers in a practice of hospitality that is a joy for the one who welcomes, and a blessing and source of encouragement to the guest.
Authors Pat Ennis and Lisa Tatlock are both experienced professors of Home Economics at The Master's College in Santa Clarita, California. Their goal is to integrate faith and learning into the discipline of home economics.
