Jen Hatmaker is one of my favorite Christian bloggers, authors, and motivational speakers. She’s funny, smart, and just edgy enough to be intelligent and cool without being snarky. Best of all, she loves Jesus and speaks truth no matter what issue she’s addressing.
If you haven’t read any of her books, begin with The Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study, hands down the best entry-level guide to studying the Bible that I have ever read. She compresses a semester of Bible interpretation courses into eight easy-to-read chapters that provide you with all you need to become your own interpreter of Scripture.
She’s written several other books including Tune In, Road Trip, Make Over, and Girl Talk, Out of the Spin Cycle, Ms. Understood, and Interrupted. In 2012, her book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess went viral. All are well worth reading.
