This book changed me. I started giving away many possessions to bless others and free myself for ministry. ( )

For 7 months, Jen Hatmaker wages a war against excess. She experiments by eating only 7 foods, wearing only 7 articles of clothing, giving away 7 items each day, and praying 7 times a day. Although Hatmaker's experiments are extreme, she raises awareness of the excesses present in our homes and our lives. ( )

Reading this book left me convicted and conflicted. Plusses and minuses from my point of view:

+:
- Relatable author: At her best, she writes with an engaging, approachable and authentically imperfect voice. I could see myself sharing coffee and an actual conversation with Jen. Compare that to many other strong Christian female writers (Beth Moore cough, cough) who I respect, but cannot imagine hanging out with.
+ Relevant perspective: I also personally wrestle with most of the seven areas that she addresses in her book. Reading how she approached these challenges is what drew me to the book.
+ Easy read: Sometimes, Christian-authored books can be densely written. Or, they're boring. Or, they're overly academic. Not this one and I mean that as a compliment.

On the conflicted side, this book danced close to some issues that I am uncomfortable with from a Biblical perspective. The less-than-plusses:

- It reads as a social experiment. Early into the book, the author gives props to her husband who shows solidarity with her by giving up something alongside her and she exclaims admiringly that 'he's not even getting paid to do this.' The implication of that stuck with me throughout the rest of the book.
- The actions she takes and things she chooses to forgo are arbitrary choices, temporarily-made. It's hard to see these as substantive sacrifices or get a sense of their potential impact to her life and relationships over time.
- She sometimes comes across as overly apologetic about the US-born wealth and privilege and as part of that, there are incidences of humble-bragging. She's rightly proud of and excited to be going through an international adoption at time of writing. Reading all that is not only inescapable, but there are some really cringeworthy comments in relation to it.
- To a Christian, the issue of being saved by faith rather than through works is a big deal. Faith without works is dead, but works without faith doesn't cut it. Jen knows that, but sometimes gets swept up in works. It would be relatively easy for someone to take away the wrong message.

Would I recommend this particular book? No. I hope it's not representative of her body of work. However, I think she has potential. I'm curious to sample another more recent Jen Hatmaker book to see how she's matured in both her faith and her writing while (hopefully) keeping it real. This one is one for completers only. ( )

Liked this book so much I blew through it in one night. A suburban middle class Christian woman looks at her life and realizes she is living excessively while others abroad and locally are suffering and going without. So she challenges herself to reduce the extravagance and does some soul searching in the process. Extremely interesting book with humor, fun, and some good lessons. ( )
