Book Review and GIVEAWAY

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.

Who’s that stage left of me and da Hubs, you ask? Oh, just my bestie Jen… nbd

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.

    I have many many favorite books. Two of my all time favorites are Juie and Christy by Catherine Marshall. Also a book that changed my life is called Expecting Adam. It is about a woman who finds out her unborn baby will have Down Syndrome and it is about the love she has for him before he is born. I read it when my baby boy was first diagnosed with his rare brain disorder and her book gave me hope.

    Okay, I have LOTS of favorite books, but one that will always stand out in my mind is titled “Mrs. Mike”. Old, old book, but worth finding it. I read it when I was about 12 or 13, and found it again last year at age 5*. I remembered every detail and all of the emotions I felt back then, I felt again.

  12. Dude I have a million favorite books. But gotta love Wuthering Heights

  13. Jane Austen’s “Emma”
    Or the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

  14. So hard to pick one!! Probably a toss-up between Pride and Prejudice and the Great Gatsby.
