We recently received our copy of Hannah Farver's book, "Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed by a Radical Love". At lunch a couple of days ago, I picked it up and began reading. I did not want to put it down. Hannah has the gift of knowing her audience - probably because she is writing to young women like herself. Hannah strikes at the core of every young woman's heart. She understands the struggles, fears, intimidations, and also the joys of being a young woman during this time period. She candidly shares her own struggles of feeling beautiful, loved, and accepted in this world where young women are constantly bombarded with pressure to conform to a certain, unrealistic standard. Hannah has found, and is still finding, that true worth and beauty have already been attained through the One who created all of us. To Him she points her audience.

As soon as I got my hands on a copy of "Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed by Radical Love" by Hannah Farver, I didn't want to put it down! In fact, I read ¾ of it in one day and finished it the next. I highly recommend this book for teen girls/young ladies...or older ones, too!

The point of her book is so much more than a modesty check, rather it's a heart check. She lays forth the gospel unashamedly, which should either leave you converted or convicted! Through Christ, we learn the true, untarnished definition of love and beauty.

She starts out by addressing the many "causes" in our life that we often attach ourselves to, and why our purpose really should be to live passionately for the Cause--the Cause of Christ. His love radically changes us, so we should show a life of radical outward change. I love how the focus was not herself, nor was it her readers--it was Christ. We shouldn't define ourselves (or beauty) based on what the culture says, or what our friends say, or what our feelings tell us, but rather by God's standard. True beauty can only be found in Christ. True love can only be found in Christ. True purity, modesty, friendship, you name it, can only be found in Christ.

"Occupations, husbands, children--all these are accessories to life. God is life itself." (Uncompromising, pg 156)

She closes her book with a challenge to be a heart claimed by a radical love. Live passionately for the Cause. Let it change you from the inside out today, and tomorrow, and every day after.

And don't let it just be an emotional passion that will pass, but rather practical, godly, day-to-day living.

In a day and age when so many young people seem lost, uncharted, what a joy to see a young lady who has found the meaning of life and is able to share that truth with her own generation. I couldn't help thinking about all the young ladies that I wanted to share this book with as I read Uncompromising, A Heart Claimed by a Radical Love by Hannah Farver. So many times while reading this book I was taken back to my own teen years and the insecurities and struggles that accompanied those days. I remember the few who were able to speak clearly and effectively into my life. I will always be grateful for their love and care for me. I believe Hannah will have that same privilege as her words are shared through the pages of this book. This is a "where the rubber meets the road" kind of book: practical advice, transparent sharing, and the guts to pull back the curtain and expose the myths of a culture that has lost touch with the Truth. "She made a conscious choice to trust in God, to take His word as truth, to see opportunity and to wear His praises publicly on her lips." I believe this quote sums up who Hannah is and what she has accomplished in the pages of this book.

Format: Paperback
In "Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed By a Radical Love," Hannah Farver offers a fresh voice on what it means to be a young women of modesty, purity, and femininity. Her style is conversational and unassuming. The reader gets no sense of a finger-pointing admonishment to live a pure and holy life from a perfect person. Rather, Farver opens herself to her readers with all her faults, fears, concerns, doubts and questions as a fellow traveler on the road to a life well-lived. Her focus is not on `thou shalt nots' but rather on guiding her readers to find the Cause who is able to fulfil their inner desire to be wholly and unconditionally loved.

Farver opens with an acknowledgement that passion is good and hard-wired into our DNA. We are designed to be passionate about a cause. The world dangles all sorts of causes in front of our eyes to lure us away from the one Cause that can deeply satisfy the desires of our hearts. These worldly causes include the desire to be considered beautiful, popular, famous, and loved. The problem, Farver contends, is that all of these causes are fleeting and leave the seeker wholly unsatisfied. Rather, she challenges, we can live for the one Cause that claims our hearts with a radical love and provides a fully satisfying life. This doesn't mean she wants to remain single all of her life but that she is willing to seek a relationship with God and allow Him to prepare her heart for relationship with the man He has chosen for her.

The book closes with a modesty checklist and an unofficial checklist to help young women determine if they are ready for marriage. The author begs, however, that readers don't take either of these resources as the final word on either topic. A study guide is also included.

I enjoyed this book.
