For The Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards

Series: Quick Lit 8/15
Genre: Christian Living
Length: 228 pages

It's been nearly four years since I found Hatmaker (along with the rest of the world) through her book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, and I've been more or less impatiently waiting for her next book. I was delighted to read that the title doesn't just refer to wholehearted, holy living but to that phrases' other meaning: for crying out loud. Wise and funny, full of lots of grace and Jesus, but also high-waisted jeans and Netflix addictions. Now I want to start a supper club—read it and you'll see what I mean.

About the Book

Best-selling author Jen Hatmaker is convinced life can be lovely and fun and courageous and kind. She reveals with humor and style how Jesus’ embarrassing 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 with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, go to church with, don’t like, don’t understand, fear, compare ourselves to, and judge. Jen knows how the squeeze of this life can make us competitive and judgmental, how we can lose love for others and then for ourselves. She reveals how to:

    • Break free of guilt and shame by dismantling the unattainable Pinterest life.
    • Learn to engage our culture’s controversial issues with a grace-first approach.
    • Be liberated to love and release the burden of always being right.
    • Identify the tools you already have to develop real-life, all-in, know-my-junk-but-love-me-anyway friendships.
    • Escape our impossible standards for parenting and marriage by accepting the standard of “mostly good.”
    • Laugh your butt off.

In this raucous ride to freedom for modern women, Jen Hatmaker bares the refreshing wisdom, wry humor, no-nonsense faith, liberating insight, and fearless honesty that have made her beloved by women worldwide.
