Tory K. Baucum is an Anglican priest who serves Alpha International and serves as the Rector of Truro (Anglican) Church, Fairfax, VA.
Evangelical Hospitality is a rare and genuine breakthrough. Baucum gives teachers, students and practitioners a simple outline for evangelistic effectiveness in the postmodern milieu. Evangelical Hospitality convincingly demonstrates that conversion and conversation are related—etymologically and practically. When people's deepest questions and concerns of life are listened to in the context of Christian hospitality offered through a nice meal, friendship and teaching, then you have the ancient and future formula of what Baucum has termed 'catechetical evangelism.' If discipleship to Jesus and becoming Spirit-enabled ambassadors of the Kingdom of God is the goal of evangelism, this simple historic pattern provides a powerful recipe for success.
