Review

"You'll be captivated by her skill in weaving together words, thoughts, and phrases-but even more beautiful is the way you'll be drawn closer to Jesus, our source of joy." -Kay Warren, co-founder of Saddleback Church and author of Choose Joy

"God reveals Himself mightily through prayer as well as through trying times. Each page of this book abounds with surprise and delight as well as inspiring strategies for overcoming the everyday battles of life. Fight Back With Joy is a gift-one you can't afford to miss." -Mark Batterson, New York Times best-selling author of The Circle Maker

"When you feel stuck in the rut of discouragement, there's no greater gift than rediscovering joy. With profound insight and poignant grace, Margaret Feinberg takes you on a journey toward joy that will reawaken your heart to the glee that comes with knowing God. You can't read this book and stay the same." -Pete Wilson, senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN

"Margaret Feinberg's courage, candor, and tender vulnerability are transforming. Her raw struggles touched deep places in my life and will in yours too. Fight Back With Joy will deepen your compassion, bring healing, and fortify your holy resolve to follow God through anything. This is a message the church needs to hear today." -Jennie Allen, founder of If:Gathering and author of Restless

"Margaret Feinberg is a strong voice of hope for us all. She is the real deal!" --Karen Kingsbury, New York Times best-selling author

Review:

This book wasn't an easy read. It wasn't the kind of book that I could quickly speed through, as is my favorite types of reads. It was a harrowing journey of a woman descending into her life's darkest depths, and that shouldn't be an easy read.

Margaret begins her year like any other. She decides not to do traditional yearly resolutions, instead picking a word to meditate on for the year. The year that God brings to her is "joy." Little does she know that in a few short months she'll be challenged with such an incredible depth of that often ambiguous Christian-ese.

The book is written well as different chapters acting as different aspects of joy that Margaret learned during her battle with breast cancer. She sets up each point with a personal story from her life as well as that of a biblical character exhibiting this aspect of joy.

This is a touching, intimate look of a dehumanizing sickness faced by people each and every day. I appreciated the gripping look into its difficulty and feel like I have a better compassion for others going through such trials.

Application:
The main points about joy are written in bold or italics, so it is easy for the read to "get" and chew on later. One of the aspects that I found most useful was the additional resources at the end of the book. There were useful tips for what not to say for someone who is going through such a crisis, and ways too help. Margaret understands that more Christians want to help, but often say the wrong things despite genuine intentions.

Favorite quotes:

More than whimsy, joy is a weapon we use to fight life's battles (12).

January 1st, 2015 finds me sitting on the couch in yoga pants, staring at a screen of sentences that I've deleted and re-written way more times than I care to admit. I'm struggling and stretching through what I'm hoping will be inspirational and motivational New Year's Resolutions, but are sounding more like the reflections of a sad, lonely 26-year-old. I ended up with this post, which is mostly my acknowledgement of discouragement and my commitment to keep pressing on day by day, despite being unclear about what the future will hold. In the midst of avoiding writing that post, I read lots of other blogs and caught up on emails, and came across one from a newly favorite author, Margaret Feinberg, looking for bloggers to read an early-release excerpt of her new book and write about it. I'm always up for great books, especially ones I'm already excited to read, and quickly signed up.

As I began to read the very first page of the except, containing simply the (reviews), I read this:

"When you feel stuck in the rut of discouragement, there’s no greater gift than rediscovering joy. With profound insight and poignant grace, Margaret Feinberg takes you on a journey toward joy that will reawaken your heart to the glee that comes with knowing God. You can’t read this book and stay the same." (Pete Wilson, senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN and author of Plan B and Let Hope In)

I thought about what interesting timing to come across a book about joy, as I have just recognized how discouraged and stuck I feel, and how my prayer has been for rescue and help in the midst of that. What a coincidental discovery on this day, and what a welcome interlude on this quiet day those three chapters were.

I always know I'm reading a good book when I have the thought "Gosh I wish I'd read this book 10 years ago", it means I'm relating to something and that I'll be able to retain the concept/idea being presented. Margaret's vulnerable and raw transparency is gut wrenching and "jump up and click your heels together" celebration inducing, all at the same time. I love how her Jewish heritage is woven in by sharing traditions that are uncommon to me but so fondly embraced by my heart. For anyone who has lived with joylessness or knows someone who is; this book is chock full of practical tips and penetrating questions to help reawaken you to life's beauty. I hope not to miss the opportunity to avert my next regret by not hiding behind safe prayers, boldly asking for what I need and the discipline of joy.

I just finished reading Fight Back with Joy...and I absolutely loved it. I laughed and I cried. It was much more personal than Margaret's other books that I've read, and I so appreciated learning about her experience with cancer. There are so many things that I gleaned from her story: how everyone's experience with cancer, trauma, disappointment, etc. is unique; how my response to others' difficulties (and my own) can be powerful and life-changing; how the Bible relates to and informs our most devastating experiences. It wouldn't be a book by Margaret without numerous Biblical references, some familiar, others quite unfamiliar. This is a brave, challenging and inspiring read. I highly recommend it.
