    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    An absolutely excellent book, by Rosaria Butterfield. I've never met Rosaria, but through her writings, I almost feel like we are neighbors. If you've read her book, "The Secret Thoughts of An Unlikely Convert," you've read her amazing testimony of how Christ saved her from a life of r...

    Do I ??see strangers as neighbors and neighbors as family of God?? Do I ??recoil at reducing a person to a category or a label?? Do I ??see God?s image reflected in the eyes of every human being on earth?? Do I know that I am ??like meth addicts and sex...

    This book, one of the best I have read this year, by a respected author and speaker, is about hospitality, a subject that I am not very good with, but have a sincere desire to grow in. The author tells us that offering radically ordinary hospitality is an everyday thing at her home. As...

    Rosaria shares stories of how her family opens their homes to neighbors and friends while making a case for the Biblical mandate to practice hospitality. So much goodness in this book. She doesn?t include a how to start guide, I think largely because it will look different fo...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    In The Gospel Comes With a House Key Rosaria Butterfield beckons the Church to practice what she calls, ?radically ordinary hospitality,? and she and her husband Kent lead the way. The potency of Butterfield?s book comes from her storytelling. She obviously subscribes to the m...

    This is probably one of the best books I've ever read. Rosaria's story is compelling, and her writing has been used to open my eyes to what Scripture says about Christian hospitality. I recommend this book to anyone, Christian or not. ...

    An absolutely excellent book, by Rosaria Butterfield. I've never met Rosaria, but through her writings, I almost feel like we are neighbors. If you've read her book, "The Secret Thoughts of An Unlikely Convert," you've read her amazing testimony of how Christ saved her from a life of r...

    Butterfield's story of "radical ordinary hospitality" gives voice to a missing component in the contemporary church. Radical ordinary hospitality is ordinary in the sense that it's not complex or fancy, only the ordinary obedient call of followers of Jesus. It's radical because living ...

    Every Christian should read this book. ...

    Many of us may not be called to the level of hospitality that Rosaria sets forth here...but don't let that discourage you from reading this book to the end. Hospitality is not all or nothing. Christians are called to have open hearts and open homes, as was written a while ago by Karen ...

    Read this. It?s the title and much more. Don?t be intimidated by the directness. Instead let it challenge your thinking then figure out how God has uniquely called you to hospitality. ...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    God did a big work in my heart regarding hospitality last year during Hurricane Harvey. We found ourselves, for one night and one day, in terrifying and desperate need of rescue and hospitality, and God used church friends and generous college-student strangers to provide that for us. ...

    In The Gospel Comes With a House Key Rosaria Butterfield beckons the Church to practice what she calls, ?radically ordinary hospitality,? and she and her husband Kent lead the way. The potency of Butterfield?s book comes from her storytelling. She obviously subscribes to the m...

    An absolutely excellent book, by Rosaria Butterfield. I've never met Rosaria, but through her writings, I almost feel like we are neighbors. If you've read her book, "The Secret Thoughts of An Unlikely Convert," you've read her amazing testimony of how Christ saved her from a life of r...

    Butterfield's story of "radical ordinary hospitality" gives voice to a missing component in the contemporary church. Radical ordinary hospitality is ordinary in the sense that it's not complex or fancy, only the ordinary obedient call of followers of Jesus. It's radical because living ...

    Every Christian should read this book. ...

    Many of us may not be called to the level of hospitality that Rosaria sets forth here...but don't let that discourage you from reading this book to the end. Hospitality is not all or nothing. Christians are called to have open hearts and open homes, as was written a while ago by Karen ...

    Read this. It?s the title and much more. Don?t be intimidated by the directness. Instead let it challenge your thinking then figure out how God has uniquely called you to hospitality. ...

    Another thought provoking book from Rosaria. This book like her other two hits home is a whole new way! Living life with a bent towards ordinary radical hospitality is naturally going to look different at my house than at the Butterfield's. This is not a "how to" rather a commitment to...

    A deeply challenging and moving book. A call to what Rosaria calls ?radically ordinary hospitality.? ...

    Do I ??see strangers as neighbors and neighbors as family of God?? Do I ??recoil at reducing a person to a category or a label?? Do I ??see God?s image reflected in the eyes of every human being on earth?? Do I know that I am ??like meth addicts and sex...

    This book, one of the best I have read this year, by a respected author and speaker, is about hospitality, a subject that I am not very good with, but have a sincere desire to grow in. The author tells us that offering radically ordinary hospitality is an everyday thing at her home. As...

    Rosaria shares stories of how her family opens their homes to neighbors and friends while making a case for the Biblical mandate to practice hospitality. So much goodness in this book. She doesn?t include a how to start guide, I think largely because it will look different fo...

    Officially one of THE best books I've read, ever. If you are a committed Christian that truly wants to begin to know God intimately and serve Him biblically - this is a must. I am actually having my children all read it as well as my husband and will be suggesting it as required readin...

    ?Imagine a world where the power of the gospel to change lives is our to behold.? This is the soul-stirring, gospel-focussed message that Rosaria Butterfield proclaims in her most recent book, The Gospel Comes With a House Key. The author aims to inspire readers to follow her ex...

    Rosaria Butterfield is one of the most powerful Christian writers working today. Her manifesto for "radical, ordinary hospitality" is saturated with rich, practical theology and a mature conscientiousness toward culture. My wife and I have both been challenged by this book to make our ...

    This book is so fantastic. I believe and hope this becomes a Christian classic. Rosaria brings us into the joys and agonies of her experience sharing Christian love and hospitality, and it severely challenges you to join the narrative of God?s work in hospitality. It?s the kind...

    Loved this book. Rosario intertwines personal stories and examples with deep truths and scripture to show what authentic Christian hospitality can and should look like. Her writing is centered on the gospel and challenges readers to open our homes/show hospitality outside of our homes ...

    Another marvelous and convicting book from Rosaria. Hospitality is a dire need for our day where discourse on any topic under the sun can be potentially divisive. This positive and insightful treatise on hospitality is passionate and invigorating. The countless stories and examples hel...

    Read this. It?s the title and much more. Don?t be intimidated by the directness. Instead let it challenge your thinking then figure out how God has uniquely called you to hospitality. ...

    Another thought provoking book from Rosaria. This book like her other two hits home is a whole new way! Living life with a bent towards ordinary radical hospitality is naturally going to look different at my house than at the Butterfield's. This is not a "how to" rather a commitment to...

    A deeply challenging and moving book. A call to what Rosaria calls ?radically ordinary hospitality.? ...

    Do I ??see strangers as neighbors and neighbors as family of God?? Do I ??recoil at reducing a person to a category or a label?? Do I ??see God?s image reflected in the eyes of every human being on earth?? Do I know that I am ??like meth addicts and sex...

    This book, one of the best I have read this year, by a respected author and speaker, is about hospitality, a subject that I am not very good with, but have a sincere desire to grow in. The author tells us that offering radically ordinary hospitality is an everyday thing at her home. As...

    Rosaria shares stories of how her family opens their homes to neighbors and friends while making a case for the Biblical mandate to practice hospitality. So much goodness in this book. She doesn?t include a how to start guide, I think largely because it will look different fo...

    Officially one of THE best books I've read, ever. If you are a committed Christian that truly wants to begin to know God intimately and serve Him biblically - this is a must. I am actually having my children all read it as well as my husband and will be suggesting it as required readin...

    ?Imagine a world where the power of the gospel to change lives is our to behold.? This is the soul-stirring, gospel-focussed message that Rosaria Butterfield proclaims in her most recent book, The Gospel Comes With a House Key. The author aims to inspire readers to follow her ex...

    Rosaria Butterfield is one of the most powerful Christian writers working today. Her manifesto for "radical, ordinary hospitality" is saturated with rich, practical theology and a mature conscientiousness toward culture. My wife and I have both been challenged by this book to make our ...

    This book is so fantastic. I believe and hope this becomes a Christian classic. Rosaria brings us into the joys and agonies of her experience sharing Christian love and hospitality, and it severely challenges you to join the narrative of God?s work in hospitality. It?s the kind...

    Loved this book. Rosario intertwines personal stories and examples with deep truths and scripture to show what authentic Christian hospitality can and should look like. Her writing is centered on the gospel and challenges readers to open our homes/show hospitality outside of our homes ...

    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    Christians are called to be ?given to hospitality.? In college and the years before marriage, hospitality was always fun and easy... My roommates along the way and I always had people in our house. We had a lot of energy and plenty of time. Now as a mom of two little boys and with ...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    God did a big work in my heart regarding hospitality last year during Hurricane Harvey. We found ourselves, for one night and one day, in terrifying and desperate need of rescue and hospitality, and God used church friends and generous college-student strangers to provide that for us. ...

    An absolutely excellent book, by Rosaria Butterfield. I've never met Rosaria, but through her writings, I almost feel like we are neighbors. If you've read her book, "The Secret Thoughts of An Unlikely Convert," you've read her amazing testimony of how Christ saved her from a life of r...

    Butterfield's story of "radical ordinary hospitality" gives voice to a missing component in the contemporary church. Radical ordinary hospitality is ordinary in the sense that it's not complex or fancy, only the ordinary obedient call of followers of Jesus. It's radical because living ...
