The Gift of the Other

The Triune God does not distinguish between “deserving” and “undeserving” Others, but rather we are all “strangers” who through thegift” of Christ are forgiven and summoned to participate in God's ultimate action of hospitality.

We live in an age of global capitalism and terror. In a climate of consumption and fear the unknown Other is regarded as a threat to our safety, a client to assist, or a competitor to be overcome in the struggle for scarce resources. And yet, the Christian Scriptures explicitly summon us to welcome strangers, to care for the widow and the orphan, and to build relationships with those distant from us. But how, in this world of hostility and commodification, do we practice hospitality? In The Gift of the Other, Andrew Shepherd engages deeply with the influential thought of French thinkers Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida, and argues that a true vision of hospitality is ultimately found not in postmodern philosophies but in the Christian narrative. The book offers a compelling Trinitarian account of the God of hospitality - a God of communion who 'makes room' for otherness, who overcomes the hostility of the world though Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, and who through the work of the Spirit is forming a new community: the Church - a people of welcome.

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of his hand. -Isaiah 64:8 All Christians have a God-given destiny, but many are at a loss when it comes to identifying it. Knowing our spiritual gifts and how the Holy Spirit has equipped us is the first step in determining what we are called to do to serve in the Body of Christ. This book is a grassroots approach in an easily understood format to help readers discover their spiritual gifts and thus begin to move toward the unique destiny that God has outlined for each person's life. The author uses personal memoirs, teachings, assessments, and true stories of supernatural encounters to demonstrate how all believers can personally access the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill all that has been blueprinted for them. We are the work of His hands!
