Written by a Christian woman whose 'ministry' is hospitality, I liked the thoughts, quotes and scriptures from the first chapter defining and encouraging hospitality. I felt like I learned something. The rest of the book was kind of weak. All application, it was a lot of tips you've heard a million times before, nothing original.
