It’s no secret that I am a fully devoted, (borderline obsessed) Jen Hatmaker
groupie fan. A modern day Christian hero passionate for social justice, she is easy to admire.
A few years back, I ravenously devoured her compelling read, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, after a life-changing humanitarian trip to serve women in West Africa. To say that God used her words, (along with those of David Platt and Francis Chan, and …ahem… THE BIBLE…) to alter the trajectory of my Christian life, would be an understatement. Conspiring with a few like-minded friends, I even started a little accountability group on Facebook where we encourage each other in the implementation of her radical, counter-cultural principles/philosophies.
I had the honor of meeting her at an adoptive family camp last summer, and, though I repeatedly and sufficiently made a fool of myself in her presence, she is even more gracious and inspiring in person. Lest I sound a bit stalker-ish (too late, yes?), let me clarify that I am convinced the radiance she emanates is that of God merely reflecting from her as she serves him, wholeheartedly.
Imagine, then, my excitement to be among blogging devotees selected to review her recent revision of an old work, Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity. Not only do I get a sneak peek at what she describes as the book of her heart, but I also have the opportunity to offer a pre-order discount of 20% to my own readers (through July 31st) and GIVE AWAY A HARD COPY!
So wait for the chance to win the copy I’m giving away, or read along with me by ordering now at the link above. Either way, I’m convinced that this book will both inspire and stretch you.
