7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess
by Jen Hatmaker
Disturbed by her family’s comfortableness with American excess, Jen Hatmaker writes in 7 about their unique social and spiritual decision to live by a rule of seven – reducing material possessions and distractions in seven areas (food, clothes, spending, media, possessions, waste, and stress) in order to connect with a greatly increased God.
Written with humor and honesty, the author shares her journey away from the materialism and excesses that so many of us take for granted and accept as part of our lives and into the presence of a God who truly loves us and wants us to have more than just “stuff.” I laughed out loud in parts, but make no mistake; this is not a comedic work. 7 makes me want to get off the consumer treadmill to find peace in a strengthened relationship with God.
