Social experiment turned spiritual

In 7, you journey with author Jen Hatmaker through her 7 month experiment to give up 7 excesses in her life: clothes, shopping, waste, food, possessions, media and stress (gee, I can't relate at all, I say with saccharine sarcasm). She's funny, passionate, self-deprecating and a no holds bar powerhouse of personality. She's also all heart, and the journey she takes you on is both fun and convicting. Told from a Christian perspective, but sure to hold topical appeal across faiths, she pointedly asks, "What if we are actually called to a radical life? What if Jesus knew our Christian culture would design a lovely life template complete with all the privileges and exemptions we want, but even with that widespread approval, He still expected radical simplicity, radical generosity, radical obedience from those with ears to hear, eyes to see?" Ouch. What if, indeed?
