From the Back Cover

Have you ever felt like you are completely missing the point?
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.

In 7, Jen Hatmaker and her family started an experimental mutiny against excess. Interrupted is the prequel, the story before the story―when God stepped into their comfortable faith and called them to join Him in something greater. Walk with Jen into a transformational journey that began with one dangerous prayer: “Raise up in me a holy passion,” and concluded with a life of service to the last, the least, the forgotten, and the forsaken. 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?

God is moving and stirring our generation. Are you ready?

There is nothing I more enjoy than reading a book that forces me to step outside of myself and re-evaluate what I think (and feel) about certain ideas. I love reading books that strengthen my faith
while challenging me to take the next step on my journey with Christ, and propel me into real action. Yes, the Bible alone is certainly efficient enough to spur such change, and only with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. However, he did place prophets (and prophetesses) in our path to give us a good kick in the pants when we seem to completely miss the point or disobey in general. "Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity" by Jen Hatmaker was that book for me. She was the prophetess the Holy Spirit sent to give me a swift kick in the pants, AND to confirm all the wrestling/longings/desires I had been trying to grapple with as a follower of Jesus as well.

This is one book I do not want to spoil for you by giving you too much "play-by-play" action, so let me just hit on a few things. First, the title alone should pique one's curiosity. Some of you may be in the camp that thinks, "I've never been comfortable," while the other group may be in the category that thinks, "there is not a thing wrong with my being comfortable." I fall into a third group, and one I believe Jen is speaking directly to (though she really is speaking to all 3). My camp is the one that says, "There has GOT to be more to this Jesus walk than this. Why do we look so rich while the communities around us are struggling so much? Why does 'church' look so different in America than just about anywhere else? Am I obeying Jesus??"

I am not comfortable, and I haven't been for a long, long time.

I'm not sure what I was expecting from the book Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker. Besides reading her blog faithfully I've only read her book Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study. Regardless, this is a book that anyone who has grown up in the church needs to read.

Written in the same style as any blog post, Facebook status or what I imagine a conversation with Jen would be like, Interrupted is really 2 books in one. The first part of this book is the back story behind how Jen and Brandon Hatmaker began to understand with clarity the unique call God has placed on their life. I really appreciated how Brandon wrote his parts, allowing the reader to understand how partnership in marriage and ministry can work. The second part of this book is really a call to action.

I cannot put into words how deeply I appreciated the honesty and humility with which this book is written. Each section lists a wealth of resources to help the reader process the steps previously introduced. The Hatmakers are very passionate about their ministry and church and it shows on the pages of this book, but more specifically, it shows in their daily actions. This is a book about showing people who Jesus truly is in a time when people are leaving the churches in masses.

This was the first Jen Hatmaker book I've ever read, but I've always heard good things and I've heard her speak once so I went in with high expectations. I have to admit I was a little disappointed after the first section. Maybe it was because I set too high of expectations going in - I don't know, but I was tempted to put it down. She seemed to focus a lot on doing things - it was leaning a lot on you're only a Christian by the works you do, and that made me nervous. But by the end I was able to see her point a lot clearer. In one of the last chapters she clearly says: "Serving people is not heaven's requirement, only a response to heaven's mercy." I'm really glad I read until the end. The challenge to 'change the bathwater' as she says -- to not just go through my Christian life blessing the blessed - is one that struck a deep chord with me. I don't agree with everything she writes and I'm weary of some of her influencers, but going along with her analogy, I don't think it's right to throw the baby out with the bathwater in regards to this book.

I was super excited to read this book and even had a good friend lined up to discuss it. I eagerly sat down and started reading. After reading Radical by David Platt a couple years ago (FYI this changed my world forever) I thought this book would be the same type of book. Not so. Biblical Christians be on guard and beware of this book. Jen Hatmaker references some influential pastors in the "church". Here are a few: Rob Bell is a universalist, Brian McLaren is a "pastor" who has conducted a wedding for his son and his son's husband-YIKES, and Tony Compolo is very involved with the very liberal emergent church movement. I'm uncomfortable reading anything written by someone who looks to these men as an advisor or influencer in their relationship with the Lord.

1 Star is being very generous. It's never easy to criticize professing believers work and when i bought this book i never imagined I would have too. The author uses left wing terminology along with church language that sounds good on the surface, but in the end are only self serving, feel good and false theology themes. She names some of her influencers (Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Tony Compolo, Shane Claiborne) who are part of the emerging/emergent church with their universalism, social gospel, and false non-biblical doctrines. Many of Rob Bell's statements have nothing to do with Jesus dying for the sins of those who believe, or forgiveness of sin, with grace and mercy, or God's wrath poured out on his own Son. There's no talk of becoming a new creation in Christ for those who are born again. No, Bell and McLaren talk about the non-Biblical central goal of social justice as the primary focus of the Emergent Church mission. These are Jen Hatmakers go to leaders. A few verses that come to mind when you hear the statements made by these men. Matthew 7:15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! Harsh verses? Teachers (writers) and Preachers are to be held to a very high standard of truth.

Should we as a Church help the poor, widowed, and orphaned? Certainly. But the repackaged, agenda driven, seemingly good intentions, that subvert the true Gospel message, should be called out for what it is. Theologian R.C. Sproul offers, "The false assuption of this so-called social justice was the merterial wealth gained only by the means of exploitation of the poor.
