Uncompromising by Hannah Farver Review

9780802411679Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed by a Radical Love is written by Hannah Farver. As a college student herself, Farver is basically writing to her peers. Her style and tone will certainly resonate with the teen/young adult crowd as will the compact size and appealing cover art. The reading feels more like a long chat as you have coffee then a formal book which is perfect for her audience. Sure she quotes Piper and Schaeffer but she also adds her own stories, some silly creations to draw the reader to her point. Hannah tackles the subjects that most teens find interesting like beauty, love, and dudes (her word not mine). I think young women will relate to her and like her which will make it easy to hear her message. What I personally liked most of all is that she calls her readers to know God and follow Him.

“Seek First the kingdom of God.” …They are words of Christ, fit for application to the life of every one of His modern-day followers (Matthew 6:33) pg. 179

I would recommend this book to any female who is a teenager or young adult. I think this would make a good gift from mother to daughter or even a book to read and discuss together. There are study guide questions in the back so it could easily be used with a small group too. It is my hope that in your discussions, you go back and line up what she writes with what the Bible says and seek to understand the truth.

AN INTERVIEW WITH HANNAH FARVER FROM REVIVE OUR HEARTS:

FROM MOODY PUBLISHER’S WEB PAGE:

Ask any girl on the street what womanhood is about, and you’ll get a blank stare in return. No one knows. Young women are devoid of vision beyond popularity, material wealth, a cute boyfriend or a dream career. Even in Christian circles, significant questions are often left unanswered: What’s the point of purity? Modesty? Femininity? What’s biblical womanhood? Most of all, girls wonder at the longing in their souls for something greater.

Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed By a Radical Love cuts straight to the heart of young womanhood. Rather than setting up rules, it pulls at the desire in every woman’s heart to live a life of purpose, fully surrendered to His radical love. Written in an edgy teen voice, Uncompromising is a collection of “field notes” from the author’s own search for answers…and the story of how she stumbled upon the one Cause worth dying for. Contains study questions for group or individual use.
