“A Mile Wide,” by Brandon Hatmaker

I recently had the chance to read A Mile Wide, by Brandon Hatmaker. This nonfiction book was released September 13, 2016 by Thomas Nelson.

About this book (from the back cover):

Christianity holds out the promise of a better way and a better day. So we’ve studied, joined more small groups, and checked all the boxes—yet, we’re still hungry for more. What if the gospel we’ve come to know is even deeper than we ever imagined? What if the same gospel that works in us to change us continues to work through us to change everything else?

Speaking from more than twenty years of experience working in the local church, Brandon Hatmaker leads us past the hurdles between our current lives and the lives we crave. He shows us how Jesus changes everything and how a greater understanding of the gospel leads to deeper faith, richer community, and more fulfilling purpose.

My Verdict:

Brandon Hatmaker has a very different style of writing from his wife, but is still engaging and easy to read. He makes you think about ways to avoid a shallow faith – one where you’re just going through the motions – and instead live out Christ’s commandments to love your neighbor. This is a great read for anyone who would like to dig deeper into his or her faith. Fans of Jen Hatmaker’s writing will be fans of Brandon’s writing as well, despite the different styles.

If you’d like to check out A Mile Wide it is currently on sale for $9.99 for the Kindle version right now, which is 57% off. (Regularly $22.99.) If you prefer a physical copy the hardcover version is currently on sale for $15.23. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
