Although hospitality was central to Christian identity and practice in earlier centuries, our generation knows little about its life-giving character. Making Room revisits the Christian foundations of welcoming strangers and explores the necessity, difficulty, and blessing of hospitality today.
Combining rich biblical and historical research with extensive exposure to contemporary Christian communities -- the Catholic Worker, L'Abri, L'Arche, and others -- this book shows how understanding the key features of hospitality can better equip us to faithfully carry out the practical call of the gospel.

Although somewhat repetitive, this book was still a very important read. I definitely needed to read about many of the things she had to say, because there is much to be learned about shaping your heart in a way that will open yourselves to others and be used to share Jesus with others as well as experience Him at your door. Wonderful words in here.
