7 Days of Christmas: A Season of Generosity by Jen Hatmaker
This is my first time reading a book by Jen Hatmaker. I noticed in a great majority of the reviews I read on amazon & Goodreads that this was a rehash of her original 7 book. Knowing this, & never having read the first book, I decided to get this as it would all be new to me. What I didn't realize was that this is a religious book. Obviously if you are familiar with the author, you'd already know this, but again, I never heard of her until now.
I found many areas of the book to be lacking in enough depth while others I read out loud to my husband. He & I both found the section on internet, smart phone, Black Friday, shopping, etc. to be the most interesting & frankly, sad. It's strange to be in a world where people cannot seem to disconnect from their devices. Where people all sit in a room together all staring at their device. It's incredible how quickly this has happened to us. Jen provides common sense advice to try to curb this addiction.
The book is small & very pretty with bible quotes & small suggestions to try to put Jesus back into Christmas rather than it being all about gifts. After all, if you are Christian as many folks are, Jesus is the reason for the season. It only took me about an hour or two to read (if you don't count me re-reading parts of it to my husband).
It would make a great gift to a like minded person. I love the Norwegian practice of gifting books. 📖
Overall, I enjoyed the book.
