4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and valuable, 15 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Hospitality and Community after Christendom (Paperback)
This book reflects on hospitality in Jesus-communities, giving consideration to the biblical and historical background to the significance of food and hospitality, with a view to appropriating these habits for missional effectiveness in a post-Christendom world. Written by an Anabaptist who has spent a lot of time exploring these issues both in ministry and as part of doctoral research, the book is part of a wider series reflecting on what it might mean to live after the decline of Christendom.

I particularly appreciated the real-life stories of how congregations and communities have taken hold of some of these ideas - stories which are both from streams of radical Christianity in history as well as contemporary UK-based examples. The consideration of leadership strategies which might help communities to engage with Francis' thinking was helpful in my own reflection and I am excited to try out with small groups of Christians some of the 'table liturgies' which Francis presents in an appendix.

I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.
