Jen Hatmaker


Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years. She discovered she had missed the point.

Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey.

A complete Interrupted Bible study curriculum is available via Lifeway.
"This is one of the most important stories I can think of: the story of courage instead of fear, adventure instead of predictability, and intimate connection with God instead of routine religious to-do lists."  -Shauna Niequist
"I have a friend who says that every few hundred years, the church needs a rummage sale to get rid of the clutter and sort through the essentials. Jen calls us to that sort of movement." - Shane Claiborne
"Jen Hatmaker is just crazy enough to actually do things Jesus talks about in the Bible, even though it's messing up her middle-class Christian life." - Karen Lee-Thorp
