Interrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of Faith - Member Book

Hatmaker, Jen (Author)


Interrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of Faith - Member Book provides the learner a study resource for this young adult Bible study. The American Dream and Christianity Aren't the Same Thing! God is in the business of interrupting what we think our lives are about. Jen Hatmaker argues that we have missed the point, confusing Christianity with the American Dream and manipulating Scripture to say what we want it to say. Interrupted is about freedom from consumer-driven Christianity and getting back to the true faith, real life, real justice, real religion. (5 sessions)

Jen Hatmaker
happily lives in Austin, Texas, where the city motto is "Keep Austin Weird." (and she is certainly doing her part.) Jen and her husband, Brandon, have three kids—Gavin, Sydney, and Caleb—though the 6-year-old recently suggested that rather than belong to a family who has to "learn to make good choices," he'd rather be homeless. (As of this writing, he hasn't taken to the streets yet.) Brandon and Jen joined the adventurous, neurotic world of missional church planters in March 2008 when they started Austin New Church, a community of faith obsessed about bringing justice and restoration to the city and the world. God continues to move mightily through this young church despite the good to excellent chance Jen and Brandon have of sabotaging it. Jen has written seven other books and Bible studies, including The Modern Girl's Guide to Bible Study series and Ms. Understood. She travels all over the United States speaking at conferences and retreats, even to Iowa during a blizzard though she doesn't own a coat (Austin may be weird, but it's warm).
