Book Review: Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker

Interrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of FaithInterrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of Faith by Jen Hatmaker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a good read, if you’re looking to have your thinking challenged and not afraid to face up to the reality of your own self-centeredness. What particularly struck me was how Jen and Brandon articulated MY condition: I’ve done all the “churchy” things for nearly 40 years and still hunger for “more.” It’s so simple; we ultimately get that “more” we’re seeking only as we pour out our lives in Jesus’ name – not as we read, study, attend, fellowship, memorize, etc. It’s all about giving rather than getting. It’s upside down, counter-intuitive and scares the dickens out of me, because the knowing and believing what Jen says is true . . . now calls me to doing!
