Book Review: Restless

Jennie Allen knocks it out of the park with yet another witty, honest, challenging book/bible study.  As a follow up to the book Anything where Allen challenges her reader to surrender, this book attempts to help the reader answer the question "now what happens that I've surrendered?"

What I love most about this book is the way each chapter allows the reader to more forward, processing their personal journey of why God has placed them on the path they are on.  Allen allows the reader to celebrate the things that bring them joy, and helps us all realize God finds joy in our talents.  Additionally the reader it brought through the story of Joseph and Allen has this simple way of writing which allows the story of Joseph to parallel our own, and yet our story is kept uniquely our own.

If you are wondering what your purpose on earth is, why you are living where you are or have to deal with the people you do, this book is for you.  If you are in need of affirmation that your mission field IS where you are called, this book is for you.  If you are simply searching for the tools on how to seek deeper relationship with God or people, this book is for you.
