Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years. She discovered she had missed the point. Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey.

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.

"Our millennial children, as well as nonchurchgoing millennials, are both the church's greatest challenge and its most exciting new opportunity." —John Seel, PhD Warning: There is a fundamental frame of reference shift in American society happening right now among young adults. You may think of this group as millennials—those born between 1980 and 2000—but millennials resist this label for good reason: the national narrative on them is pejorative, patronizing, and just plain wrong. Here's what we do know: Of Americans with a church background, 76 percent are described as "religious nones" or unaffiliated—and it's the fastest growing segment of the population. Close to 40 percent of millennials fit this religious profile. Roughly 80 percent of teens in evangelical church high school youth groups will abandon their faith after two years in college. It's unlikely that the evangelical church can survive if it is uniformly rejected by millennials, and yet: Millennial pastors and youth ministers are disempowered; their perspective is often not taken seriously by senior church leadership. Most millennial research is framed in categories rejected by millennials; that is, left-brained, analytical communication is lost on right-brained, intuitive millennials. Evangelicals' bias toward rational left-brained thinking makes the church seem tone-deaf. What's next? Read on. John Seel suggests survival strategies—communication on-ramps for genuine human connection with the next generation. It can be done.

Throughout time, women have been identified in many conflicting ways. Sometimes goddesses, slaves, or seductresses, but always misunderstood—by themselves and others. Jen Hatmaker uses examples from the five women named in Jesus’ lineage to help identify who a daughter of Christ is. From the woman who acted like a prostitute to the woman who was one, the widow to the adulteress to the mother, each has something to pass on.

Our churches are to reach out in love to all people with the life-saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. But we have a competitor to our mission - it is the American Dream. The American Dream is to attain more and more comfort as we got through life finally attaining the most sought after prize, retirement. We have fast-food restaurants, drive through car-washes, computers and other technological advancements that help us achieve this comfort. You will be surprised at how the every-day comforts that we take for granted have sprouted and perpetuated this attitude on our churches. This pursuit of comfort is driving our churches to make decisions based on attaining their own personal comfort rather than sacrificing that comfort for the sake of the Great Commission. Comfortable Christianity exposes this attitude and the different ways that it shows itself in our churches. Comfortable Christianity gives careful attention to what needs to be done in order to overcome this attitude and turn our churches into Great Commission centers of the Gospel.

Inspired by and adapted from her breakout book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, 7 Days of Christmas takes Hatmaker's social experiments in seven key areas--food, clothes, spending, media, possessions, waste, stress--and turns them into thoughtful and practical generosity that captures the true spirit of Christmas. 7 Days of Christmas covers 7 days during the Christmas season to practice both generosity and restraint in the areas related to the book. It will contain snippets of Jen's journey throughout to offer insight, humor, ideas, facts, and encouragement for the reader to consider while embracing this change, if only for 24 hours. We'll see the reasons why each area is important to Jen and also applicable to most American families. We'll also see how that particular area of excess impacts the family unit, the community, and the world at large--complete with ideas on how to reduce thoughtless consumption and consider other practices that lead to less stuff but more joy.
