Book Description

 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.

My Review

 For the Love:  Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards is written by Jen Hatmaker. Jen Hatmaker is a popular Christian author, blogger and speaker.

For the Love is a light read. Hatmaker uses humour and honesty to get her points across. For the Love is about love of course. Jesus's love and the importance of loving ourselves and others. For the Love is about practicing biblical principles of showing love to others through grace, kindness and truthfulness.

For the Love is nothing new but it is a gentle reminder to show love to others. It is a good entertaining and fulfilling read that will be of value to new and mature Christians alike. Hatmaker has an inviting style of writing that encourages and uplifts readers.

Great read. Very encouraging.
