Book Review | For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

for the loveFor the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards by Jen Hatmaker is fun to read! The book is crafted from the perspective of “turning 40” and a reflection through Jen’s Christian life as a wife and mom. The humor is witty and entertaining! Book chapters include:

  • Run Your Race
  • Surviving School
  • Marriage Fun
  • Difficult People
  • Dear Christians, Stop Being Crappy

While the book is funny, Jen’s overall objective is “ help lead  tribe that does more healing and less hurting.” Her raw testimony is sprinkled with jaw-dropping wisdom you don’t want to miss!

The popular writer, blogger, and television personality reveals with humor and style how Jesus’ extravagant grace is the key to dealing with life’s biggest challenge: people.

The majority of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks relate to people, beginning first with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, live for, go to church with, don’t like, don’t understand, fear, struggle with, compare ourselves to, and judge. People are the best and worst thing about the human life.

Jen Hatmaker knows this all too well, and so she reveals how to practice kindness, grace, truthfulness, vision, and love to ourselves and those around us. By doing this, For the Love leads our generation to reimagine Jesus’ grace as a way of life, and it does it in a funny yet profound manner that Christian readers will love. Along the way, Hatmaker shows readers how to reclaim their prophetic voices and become Good News again to a hurting, polarized world.
