Restless by Jennie Allen

This is a book about God. And this is a book about us and God. And this is a book about the moment we close our eyes and see God. This is a book about facing the God of the universe and answering to him about the life and resources he gives us while we are here. 
...this is a book about discovering ourselves and getting over ourselves all at the same time. This is a book about being brave enough to imagine a better world, and how we may be used to make it that way. This is a book about changing the world and changing diapers. This is a book about fears and suffering and joys and gifts. This is a book about all that lies in our control and how nothing is in our control. This is a book about vision and obedience.    - Jennie Allen

Do you feel like there is more to life than what you are experiencing right now? Do you feel like you were made for more? Do you feel restless?

Jennie Allen did, and suspects that many others feel the same way. Using the story of Joseph from Genesis, Jennie shows us how our personal story can fit into God's greater story. The book is full of personal stories, scripture and questions that will possibly make you uncomfortable, but also take you deeper into your journey.

Even if you feel like you have it all together and are headed in the right direction, you will find wisdom and encouragement in the pages of this book.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
