Summer Online Book Club – June
During the summer, let’s take a break from Bible study and do some reading by the pool! I want to challenge you, however, to read something that directs your affections to our Father, Savior and Lord! These are the books I’m reading: in June, “The Gospel Comes with a House Key”, and in July, “Teach Us to Want”.

The Gospel Comes with a House Key: Practicing Radical Ordinary Hospitality in our Post-Christian World by Rosaria Butterfield
Purchase on Amazon HERE
What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.
With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same “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.
