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.
I have heard several good things about this book from my sisters and a friend so I jumped at the chance to review it, and it was as good as they said it was! Hannah writes in a clear and refreshing way that is sure to connect with girls of all ages. She never comes across as “preachy” but rather as an imperfect girl who is chasing after God and longs for others to do the same. Hannah addresses many issues that plague girls today and shares what God's taught her in regards to those subjects. I would highly recommend this to girls everywhere!
