Anchored in Scripture and Tradition, Radical Hospitality for a Prophetic Church conveys Amanda D. Quantz’s firsthand experiences as a chaplain working with emerging ministries that meet people where they are. Building on the biblical concept that all wisdom was present in the mind of God before creation, Quantz argues that this wisdom has filtered into the world’s varied religious traditions, so that Christians have much to gain approaching others from different religious or spiritual creeds and learning about their faith traditions and values. Whether seekers are experimenting with open Communion, “church without walls,” or ancient but little-known Christian practices, this book is a resource for those who feel stuck in outdated ideas about what it means to be a church.
