speak at MomCon. When I heard she'd updated and was re-releasing her book "Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity", I jumped at the chance to review and spread the word about her book.
This book tells of a compelling journey that God took a ministry family on (after interrupting life as they knew it), resulting in a new church plant, a new way to do ministry for them and many lives changed, including their own. But the book is so, so much more than that.
I wanted to devour the book, to find out how the tension and questions being brought to the author's heart by God would be resolved. Yet at the same time I knew I needed to go slowly to let the message soak into my heart to work through the lessons and challenges being brought to the surface. It is a book I will likely read a second time.
If you haven't read anything by Jen Hatmaker, see her author profile below and check out her blog. Her writing style in her book mirrors her blog, like she is telling you this story as a friend. In fact after hearing her speak this fall, I can almost hear her voice in my head as I read her words. She is honest, funny, writes from her whole heart and as she states "I over share and have no discernable filter".
God is moving today and through us He can do the "new" thing the world is waiting for. Are you brave enough to let God interrupt comfortable to do something brave?
