    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    This is a revised review. At about 30% in I thought I couldn?t take it anymore and called it quits, but I decided to tough it out and complete the book so this is my updated review on the whole thing. It?s pretty rare for me to consider quitting a book (esp. multiple times), but fo...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    Read 5 myths about hospitality here. Hospitality is a habit. WORLD comments here. ...

    This was a bit of a love-hate book for me. I have the deepest respect for the work she is doing in her community. I want to be much more welcoming, and more intentional about how Owen and I open our home to those around us. My dissapointment in the book mostly stems from my initial exc...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    This book floored me. Rosaria Butterfield casts a beautiful image of Christian home as ministry through ordinary, daily hospitality. She strikes the perfect balance between practical details and lovely well-read writing. This book will be affecting me for years to come. ...

    audiobook. It was quite good. of course, as with all books, read in light of the Bible. I don't think Rosaria wrote it to say, "Everyone must do hospitality... and do it exactly like me." but I could see some people taking it that way. So read for ideas, encouragement, inspiration/gu...

    My praise: The church needs this message desperately. I love how she emphasized that the gospel isn?t a perfected speech, a rehearsed checklist. It?s walking with.. it?s leaning into and embracing the process of walking with someone towards Christ. The process is important. I als...

    Blown away by Rosaria's life. I hate that so many people will read this book and call her life radical when this should be ordinary! (Hence why she calls it radically ordinary hospitality) This is a life that so many of us should emulate to show the love of Christ in the way we live. I...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Y'all really need to read this! It's important if you want to know "radically ordinary" ways to make a difference in the world as a believer. "Who else but Bible-believing Christians can make redemptive sense of tragedy? Who can see hope in the promises of God when the real, lived circ...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    We typically think of hospitality as being willing to entertain our friends regularly, maybe even at a moment's notice. Or maybe we think of hospitality as having a "drop by anytime" attitude toward our friends. I doubt that many of us think of hospitality the way the Butterfields appr...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    A book full of thought provoking ideas and challenges to practice hospitality. This has helped me think through the ?why? of hospitality and the different roles it plays in seasons of life. Evangelistic hospitality is not something I had previously done a lot of thinking about so t...

    3.5 stars. This book had a lot of good points but I felt like the author rambled quite a bit. I admire her heart for hospitality and will definitely be taking things away from this book. ...

    As always, Rosaria?s thoughts are edifying, challenging, and moving. The fact that she learned how to turn her house into a ?hospital and incubator? while in the LGBTQ community - a skill she has very intentionally transferred into her role as a pastor?s wife and adoptive mothe...

    Christians are called to be ?given to hospitality.? In college and the years before marriage, hospitality was always fun and easy... My roommates along the way and I always had people in our house. We had a lot of energy and plenty of time. Now as a mom of two little boys and with ...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    I finished a book today that will rank as one of the hardest I have ever had to read. The Gospel Comes With a House Key is by Rosaria Butterfield and is published by Crossway. This is the information about Dr. Butterfield from the publisher?s website: Rosaria Butterfield (PhD, ...

    In The Gospel Comes With a House Key Rosaria Butterfield beckons the Church to practice what she calls, ?radically ordinary hospitality,? and she and her husband Kent lead the way. The potency of Butterfield?s book comes from her storytelling. She obviously subscribes to the m...

    I loved her first book, I love hearing her speak in person, so I suppose it?s no surprise that I would love her second book as well. I so appreciate this sister-in-Christ spurring me on to love and good deeds. She doesn?t give one a pass on the place biblical hospitality should hav...

    I found this book inspiring as I read about the radical, all-out hospitality of the Butterfields. It is a kick in the seat of the pants to those who do not have time or inclination to use the things God has given them to share with others. And not just others within the church. The But...

    Scripture calls disciples of Jesus to be hospitable and to show hospitality (Rom. 12:13, Titus 1:8, Heb. 13:2, etc.). It has to do with loving others and being kind to them in the name of Christ. Quite a few books have been written about this. One of the newer ones is called The Gospel...

    God did a big work in my heart regarding hospitality last year during Hurricane Harvey. We found ourselves, for one night and one day, in terrifying and desperate need of rescue and hospitality, and God used church friends and generous college-student strangers to provide that for us. ...

    In a post-Christian society, I am more and more convinced that the best way forward is Christians practicing the lost art of hospitality. And Rosaria is a prime example of why. She explains throughout the book that hospitality is not simply having good food when guests come over. Hospi...

    This is a great book and every Christian should read it. My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Rosaria Butterfield at a live event and bought the book on the spot. Her call for Christians to be truly hospitable to friends, family, and neighbors inside and outside the Church, was ver...

    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    This is a revised review. At about 30% in I thought I couldn?t take it anymore and called it quits, but I decided to tough it out and complete the book so this is my updated review on the whole thing. It?s pretty rare for me to consider quitting a book (esp. multiple times), but fo...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    This was a bit of a love-hate book for me. I have the deepest respect for the work she is doing in her community. I want to be much more welcoming, and more intentional about how Owen and I open our home to those around us. My dissapointment in the book mostly stems from my initial exc...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    This book floored me. Rosaria Butterfield casts a beautiful image of Christian home as ministry through ordinary, daily hospitality. She strikes the perfect balance between practical details and lovely well-read writing. This book will be affecting me for years to come. ...

    audiobook. It was quite good. of course, as with all books, read in light of the Bible. I don't think Rosaria wrote it to say, "Everyone must do hospitality... and do it exactly like me." but I could see some people taking it that way. So read for ideas, encouragement, inspiration/gu...

    My praise: The church needs this message desperately. I love how she emphasized that the gospel isn?t a perfected speech, a rehearsed checklist. It?s walking with.. it?s leaning into and embracing the process of walking with someone towards Christ. The process is important. I als...

    Blown away by Rosaria's life. I hate that so many people will read this book and call her life radical when this should be ordinary! (Hence why she calls it radically ordinary hospitality) This is a life that so many of us should emulate to show the love of Christ in the way we live. I...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Y'all really need to read this! It's important if you want to know "radically ordinary" ways to make a difference in the world as a believer. "Who else but Bible-believing Christians can make redemptive sense of tragedy? Who can see hope in the promises of God when the real, lived circ...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    A book full of thought provoking ideas and challenges to practice hospitality. This has helped me think through the ?why? of hospitality and the different roles it plays in seasons of life. Evangelistic hospitality is not something I had previously done a lot of thinking about so t...

    3.5 stars. This book had a lot of good points but I felt like the author rambled quite a bit. I admire her heart for hospitality and will definitely be taking things away from this book. ...

    As always, Rosaria?s thoughts are edifying, challenging, and moving. The fact that she learned how to turn her house into a ?hospital and incubator? while in the LGBTQ community - a skill she has very intentionally transferred into her role as a pastor?s wife and adoptive mothe...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    I loved her first book, I love hearing her speak in person, so I suppose it?s no surprise that I would love her second book as well. I so appreciate this sister-in-Christ spurring me on to love and good deeds. She doesn?t give one a pass on the place biblical hospitality should hav...

    I found this book inspiring as I read about the radical, all-out hospitality of the Butterfields. It is a kick in the seat of the pants to those who do not have time or inclination to use the things God has given them to share with others. And not just others within the church. The But...

    God did a big work in my heart regarding hospitality last year during Hurricane Harvey. We found ourselves, for one night and one day, in terrifying and desperate need of rescue and hospitality, and God used church friends and generous college-student strangers to provide that for us. ...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    This was a bit of a love-hate book for me. I have the deepest respect for the work she is doing in her community. I want to be much more welcoming, and more intentional about how Owen and I open our home to those around us. My dissapointment in the book mostly stems from my initial exc...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    This book floored me. Rosaria Butterfield casts a beautiful image of Christian home as ministry through ordinary, daily hospitality. She strikes the perfect balance between practical details and lovely well-read writing. This book will be affecting me for years to come. ...

    audiobook. It was quite good. of course, as with all books, read in light of the Bible. I don't think Rosaria wrote it to say, "Everyone must do hospitality... and do it exactly like me." but I could see some people taking it that way. So read for ideas, encouragement, inspiration/gu...

    My praise: The church needs this message desperately. I love how she emphasized that the gospel isn?t a perfected speech, a rehearsed checklist. It?s walking with.. it?s leaning into and embracing the process of walking with someone towards Christ. The process is important. I als...

    Blown away by Rosaria's life. I hate that so many people will read this book and call her life radical when this should be ordinary! (Hence why she calls it radically ordinary hospitality) This is a life that so many of us should emulate to show the love of Christ in the way we live. I...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Y'all really need to read this! It's important if you want to know "radically ordinary" ways to make a difference in the world as a believer. "Who else but Bible-believing Christians can make redemptive sense of tragedy? Who can see hope in the promises of God when the real, lived circ...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    We typically think of hospitality as being willing to entertain our friends regularly, maybe even at a moment's notice. Or maybe we think of hospitality as having a "drop by anytime" attitude toward our friends. I doubt that many of us think of hospitality the way the Butterfields appr...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    3.5 stars. This book had a lot of good points but I felt like the author rambled quite a bit. I admire her heart for hospitality and will definitely be taking things away from this book. ...

    As always, Rosaria?s thoughts are edifying, challenging, and moving. The fact that she learned how to turn her house into a ?hospital and incubator? while in the LGBTQ community - a skill she has very intentionally transferred into her role as a pastor?s wife and adoptive mothe...

    This is a hard review to write. First, in college I was welcomed by the author into the very type of hospitality she describes in this book. I know that she practices what she preaches, and practices it very well. I was an unchurched Christian and she brought me, and many other college...

    I've been dying to read this book since before it was even released; the Gospel and hospitality? two of my favorite subjects? written by one of my favorite authors? I couldn't wait. Now that I've read it I think I'm mostly disappointed. While there were lots of good things about thi...

    This book had some very good parts and some painfully bad. I would love to discuss this book in a group! And I would love having someone like Rosaria live in my neighborhood! My best take away is a reminder that living Christianity should be costly. I have to push myself. I have to wor...

    This is a revised review. At about 30% in I thought I couldn?t take it anymore and called it quits, but I decided to tough it out and complete the book so this is my updated review on the whole thing. It?s pretty rare for me to consider quitting a book (esp. multiple times), but fo...

    *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via #netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading this book; first, because the author is one I?ve admired from afar ever since I read her first book, Confessions of an Unlikely Convert;...

    Read 5 myths about hospitality here. Hospitality is a habit. WORLD comments here. ...

    This was a bit of a love-hate book for me. I have the deepest respect for the work she is doing in her community. I want to be much more welcoming, and more intentional about how Owen and I open our home to those around us. My dissapointment in the book mostly stems from my initial exc...

    4 1/2 stars. This book is thought-stirring and a deeply challenging call on hospitality to the stranger and outcast. She calls us to love our LGBT neighbors with hospitality and hope of the gospel, not fearing or despising them. This book was hard for me to put down. I will read it aga...

    This book floored me. Rosaria Butterfield casts a beautiful image of Christian home as ministry through ordinary, daily hospitality. She strikes the perfect balance between practical details and lovely well-read writing. This book will be affecting me for years to come. ...

    audiobook. It was quite good. of course, as with all books, read in light of the Bible. I don't think Rosaria wrote it to say, "Everyone must do hospitality... and do it exactly like me." but I could see some people taking it that way. So read for ideas, encouragement, inspiration/gu...

    My praise: The church needs this message desperately. I love how she emphasized that the gospel isn?t a perfected speech, a rehearsed checklist. It?s walking with.. it?s leaning into and embracing the process of walking with someone towards Christ. The process is important. I als...

    Blown away by Rosaria's life. I hate that so many people will read this book and call her life radical when this should be ordinary! (Hence why she calls it radically ordinary hospitality) This is a life that so many of us should emulate to show the love of Christ in the way we live. I...

    Rosaria has a very unique perspective that makes this book so rich, smart, and gospel centric. She doesn?t mince words and she sticks to the Bible as her rubric for hospitality. I walked away thinking that I had actually sat in her home and experienced the radical hospitality she wri...

    Y'all really need to read this! It's important if you want to know "radically ordinary" ways to make a difference in the world as a believer. "Who else but Bible-believing Christians can make redemptive sense of tragedy? Who can see hope in the promises of God when the real, lived circ...

    Amazing book about hospitality. Rosaria gives a vision of what biblical hospitality looks like in real world and its importance in our post-Christian culture. The book is full of biblical truths and personal stories of how Rosaria and her family have lived out hospitality. Throughout t...

    We typically think of hospitality as being willing to entertain our friends regularly, maybe even at a moment's notice. Or maybe we think of hospitality as having a "drop by anytime" attitude toward our friends. I doubt that many of us think of hospitality the way the Butterfields appr...

    When we first moved into our house, only one of our neighbors introduced himself. Gordy wandered over one afternoon and launched into a long, meandering story about how he had cemented a friendship with Alois, the former owner of our house. Every evening the two men would come out to w...

    A book full of thought provoking ideas and challenges to practice hospitality. This has helped me think through the ?why? of hospitality and the different roles it plays in seasons of life. Evangelistic hospitality is not something I had previously done a lot of thinking about so t...

    3.5 stars. This book had a lot of good points but I felt like the author rambled quite a bit. I admire her heart for hospitality and will definitely be taking things away from this book. ...

    As always, Rosaria?s thoughts are edifying, challenging, and moving. The fact that she learned how to turn her house into a ?hospital and incubator? while in the LGBTQ community - a skill she has very intentionally transferred into her role as a pastor?s wife and adoptive mothe...

    Christians are called to be ?given to hospitality.? In college and the years before marriage, hospitality was always fun and easy... My roommates along the way and I always had people in our house. We had a lot of energy and plenty of time. Now as a mom of two little boys and with ...

    I enjoyed a lot about this book, but I can?t give this five stars. I?m troubled by her criticisms of Wesley Hill that I read in this book and also heard from her mouth in person during a conference where she spoke about this book. I also find her use of the term ?biblical patriar...

    I finished a book today that will rank as one of the hardest I have ever had to read. The Gospel Comes With a House Key is by Rosaria Butterfield and is published by Crossway. This is the information about Dr. Butterfield from the publisher?s website: Rosaria Butterfield (PhD, ...

    In The Gospel Comes With a House Key Rosaria Butterfield beckons the Church to practice what she calls, ?radically ordinary hospitality,? and she and her husband Kent lead the way. The potency of Butterfield?s book comes from her storytelling. She obviously subscribes to the m...

    I loved her first book, I love hearing her speak in person, so I suppose it?s no surprise that I would love her second book as well. I so appreciate this sister-in-Christ spurring me on to love and good deeds. She doesn?t give one a pass on the place biblical hospitality should hav...

    I found this book inspiring as I read about the radical, all-out hospitality of the Butterfields. It is a kick in the seat of the pants to those who do not have time or inclination to use the things God has given them to share with others. And not just others within the church. The But...

    Scripture calls disciples of Jesus to be hospitable and to show hospitality (Rom. 12:13, Titus 1:8, Heb. 13:2, etc.). It has to do with loving others and being kind to them in the name of Christ. Quite a few books have been written about this. One of the newer ones is called The Gospel...

    God did a big work in my heart regarding hospitality last year during Hurricane Harvey. We found ourselves, for one night and one day, in terrifying and desperate need of rescue and hospitality, and God used church friends and generous college-student strangers to provide that for us. ...

    In a post-Christian society, I am more and more convinced that the best way forward is Christians practicing the lost art of hospitality. And Rosaria is a prime example of why. She explains throughout the book that hospitality is not simply having good food when guests come over. Hospi...
