I love this book. I love seeing it resting on my end table ... I love carrying it with me wherever I go ... I love hoping someone will ask me what I'm reading ... I love reading and re-reading this book.
I want to carry a basket full of copies of this book with me everywhere I go and hand them out to every woman I see. The mom with the screaming toddler in the airport, the wife struggling to find her worth in a failing marriage, the female minister heading into her church to shepherd her flock, the young coed worried about how she compares to her friends, the new Christian, the established Christian, the don't-come-near-me-with-your-crazy-religion non-Christian ... I want them all to hold this book in their hands and feel the warm waves of love, support, and understanding that it exudes.
For the Love is a breath of fresh air to world-weary lungs and a balm to sad and splintered souls. In her quirky way, Jen Hatmaker will make you laugh and think and cry and wonder and question and pray and ponder and feel. She will be gentle with you, and she will show you what actual, true, redemptive, perfect love is all about. It's a message our very beings yearn to hear.
A combination of modern-day commentary on such ordinary-turned-hilarious topics as leggings-as-pants to the most important questions of our day -- how do we treat each other better? -- this book covers the concerns of today's women with grace and laughter. Women of Earth, you will love this book and you will walk away from reading it with a renewed sense of your own value, and you will know that you are loved.
