About:

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.

My thoughts:

This really is a must read book for any teenaged girl. So much truth is packed into this book.

Hannah tackles tough issues with love and grace and she doesn’t hold back on what the Bible teaches.

As a mom I totally appreciate this book for my daughter, but even as an adult women who can struggle with issues of the heart I appreciate it as a reminder of who God created me to be.

I really liked the chapter on modesty, this chapter alone it worth the book. Hannah offers some great insights into the clothes girls choose to wear and asks why are you choosing the wear that? What is the heart behind that choice? This is a timely chapter for my daughter and me as summer is here and she sees a lot of girls wearing bikinis. I don’t allow my daughter to wear them. My daughter and I have also had conversations about that fact that it is part of our responsibility as women to help keep boys mines pure. If we dress in a way that will lead them to think lustful thoughts then we are part of the problem. Young girls (and women) need to take responsibility for how we dress.

I do think this book is geared more toward teens, I think my daughter might get a bit bored reading it, but she is only twelve. But this is a very good book and much needed.
