Publisher's Summary

Are you one of the millions who crave a new direction in the church, fed up with religious games, empty promises, and cultural Christianity? You are not alone. You are not crazy. Maybe Jesus is ready to interrupt your life. Snatching Jen Hatmaker from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, "What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?" Transparent and imperfect, Jen will engage and inspire you to go beyond comfortable and answer for yourself the question she faced: Is there more to faith than just safe and sequestered, predictable and boring?

    Story
    "If you're ready to be interrupted too..."

    Then this book is for you. It is the story of one family's encounter with Scripture, people in the margins, with the essence of faith, and with church.
    Hatmaker writes in a personal, revelatory way without invoking tricks of guilt, Scripture-twisting or "social gospelese." Readers will learn the difference between *being* the Good News and *knowing* it, between the Gospel in its fullness and the Gospel of the American church, between a heart that loves the poor and one that enables, neglects, belittles or ignores.

    Her writing is clever, quick to the point, sharp and warm. My husband listened with me, and he appreciated Brandon Hatmaker's interjections. We both greatly valued her suggested reading lists, and our Audible Wish List has grown immensely since beginning this "Interrupted" journey together.

    "I didn't want to be challenged..."

    I just listened to this because my wife was reading it. Instead I found myself being challenged. That wasn't the plan. My wife and I are chewing on and being challenged by this

    "So GOOD!"

    A book every person claiming to be a Christian should read. The author's witty sense of humor & ability to "go deep" on the core of the Christian faith keep this weighty discussion balanced & palatable.

    "Eye opener!"

    Great book opening my eyes about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Some of the concepts disturbed me in a way that it might be good for me to step out of my comfort zone. Great material!

    Story
    "Live on mission not in poverty"

    To be interrupted in order to live on mission is commendable. However, living on mission does not require either a Vow of poverty, or Necessitate the elimination of church programs that may accomplish mission in a particular context. However Jen larger point of being very deliberate and intentional to live on mission is well taken and spot on for the American church. At times Jen is overly optimistic that we can win a hearing of the postmoderns by living lives of poverty or justice or good works in the community. Jen may have forgotten that the gospel message of the cross and the doctrine of Christ and his apostles is still offensive to the world.

    "I adore this author!!!! Amazing book."

    Jen Hatmaker walks the walk when it comes to "What would Jesus do? Such a refreshing take on being Christian for people who feel stagnant in their faith...and more importantly for people who feel comfortable in their faith. Thank you for this amazing book, Jen! I laughed as often as I said "Yes! A
    men!" And I will never consume banana halves in quite the same reckless way!
