Salvation by . . . Hospitality?

Having continued my hospitality related Tweetstorm I came across this book review.

The provocative title comes from a letter at the end of the first-century known as 1 Clement. Clement mentions three times that Abraham, Lot, and Rahab were saved by faith and hospitality. This may come as a surprise to Protestants, but it’s true that God’s promise to Abraham is confirmed in Genesis 18 after he demonstrates his piety by offering hospitality to the three men (Gen. 18:1–15). In a similar way, Lot’s hospitality to the divine visitors is part of the basis for God’s rescue of Lot’s family (Gen. 19:1–3). And Rahab’s faith is manifested in her welcoming the spies in peace (Heb. 11:31).
