Great Recipe Books To Use For Hospitality

  • The Supper of the Lamb by Robert Farrar Capon. This delightful book intertwines cooking and theology to produce a refreshing book filled with wisdom about cooking, hospitality and life.
  • Twelve Months of Monastery Soups by Victor-Antoine D’Avila-Latourrette. From the monastery to the kitchen. This is a great collection of simple, inexpensive but nourishing recipes. It is worth checking out his other books too.
  • Extending the Table: A World Community Cookbook is compiled and authored by Schlabach with assistance from Kristina Mast Burnett, recipe editor. I love this cookbook with stories, proverbs and recipes from around the world.
  • Its companions More with Less and Simply in Seasonare also valuable resources for inexpensive seasonal cooking.
  • There is even a Simply in Season Children’s Cookbookwhich at this stage, I have not experimented with but it teaches kids about where food comes from and how to prepare it – always a fun part of hospitality.

Thanks, Christine. The healing and up-building of the church Body of Christ relies heavily on the Holy Spirit and hospitality! To encourage other Christian poets and writers to consider this, I highlighted the post on the Christian Poets & Writers blog – http://christianpoetsandwriters.blogspot.com. May God help us to be loving, kind, and hospitable to one another in Jesus’ Name.

Thank you for this wonderful reminder of Christian hospitality. I have been to my bookshelves and dug out Tim Chester and Homan & Pratt! Good things to read right now – we are about to celebrate the first anniversary of opening our new home as a small retreat house especially for those wearied by full-time ministry and so the reminder of radical hospitality is a good one! http://www.the-vine-atmaysfarm.com

[…] Have you ever thought of foreign language learning as a form of hospitality?
