My favorite book on Christian hospitality is Andi Ashworth’s Real Love for Real Life. I reviewed it back in 2006. In early 2008, Andi Ashworth lead our church women’s retreat, teaching from this material. Both reading it and hearing it were good for the soul.
Unfortunately, the book has been out of print for a while. But good news for those who need encouragement in caregiving: Rabbit Room Press is releasing a second edition. Order today, it ships next week.
I need to re-read it myself and I’d love to read along with friends and discuss it. I always enjoy a good read, but books are better when they are shared, discussed over a beverage (I’m not too picky) and referenced for years to come as part of a common experience.
