Article

This article is a theological-ethical reading of the narrative of Lot’s hospitality in Genesis 19, using the hermeneutical lens of a Christian faith tradition. It considers hospitality as a living existential struggle that has crucial contemporary implications. The article poses the question: How do we see the arrival of ‘the other’ into our so-called ‘private and secure territory’? It then attempts a response to the question from the inversion of hospitality’s point of view and its resultant effects.
