“In a society where many people search desperately for the elusive ‘family values,’ this book roots hospitality where it belongs â€” in the graciousness of God,” writes one reviewer.
In The Faith-Sharing Congregation, Swanson and Clement reclaim the local congregation as the center of ministry and mission, demonstrating that evangelism is the responsibility of the entire congregation ” clergy and laity ” working together.
The Faith-Sharing Congregation suggests a three-fold evangelism strategy that includes:
sharing faith through the practice of genuine hospitality
sharing faith through relationships and personal stories
sharing faith through the “domestic” church, the Body of Christ
