Moody Publishers Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed By a Radical Love

Ask any girl on the street what womanhood is about, and you'll get a blank stare in return. No one knows. Young women are devoid of vision beyond popularity, material wealth, a cute boyfriend or a dream career. Even in Christian circles, significant questions are often left unanswered: What's the point of purity? Modesty? Femininity? What's biblical womanhood? Most of all, girls wonder at the longing in their souls for something greater.

Uncompromising: A Heart Claimed By a Radical Love cuts straight to the heart of young womanhood. Rather than setting up rules, it pulls at the desire in every woman's heart to live a life of purpose, fully surrendered to His radical love. Written in an edgy teen voice, Uncompromising is a collection of "field notes" from the author's own search for answers.and the story of how she stumbled upon the one Cause worth dying for. Contains study questions for group or individual use.

What is a young, unmarried woman supposed to do? Does she live like so very many in this world, focused on guys, college and/or career, and making herself happy? Or does she make her Cause something greater?
Author Hannah Farver challenges women (really of all ages) to view their purpose in life through different "glasses" in "Uncompromising: A Heart Called by a Radical Love".
Miss Farver covers a common theme regarding purity, but also dives head-first into topics like feminism, modesty, and the possibility of turning the want for a relationship (or the relationship itself) into an idol. She calls women to seek the Kingdom of God first, asking questions of what would God want us to do vs. (for example) should I date or should I court?
I have read many books written for young women as I prayerfully try to mentor my daughter through her teen years and beyond. This book has some different insights I found worthwhile and would recommend this book for older teens and beyond.

I bought this for my 17 year old daughter and she really loved it and gave it to her younger sister to read. This is a must read for all young girls.

Uncompromising is a book written by young college student, Hannah Farver, for teens and young women for today.
There are ’causes’ that are competing every day for each young woman’s heart. Hannah provides a list of ’causes’ that need to take a back seat or at least an attitude adjustment to the real Cause. They sneak up very subtly, drawing young women unaware.
She’s not saying all these causes are wrong. But they need to be put into the right priority and perspective. The True Cause must take precedence. A few of the causes that can sidetrack a young lady are:
The world’s beauty
You need more than a guy
Feminism
Equality
She goes into detail on some of the real purposes that young women need to look into:
Inner beauty
Femininity
Modesty
Purity
Marriage in God’s Will
Friends
Submission
And most importantly, Seeking First the Kingdom of God, THE CAUSE
This is one power-packed book of what womanhood truly means. Coming from a young college student, you know God has given her truths and wisdom beyond her years. She pulls no punches, but she does couch it with a lot of humor and wit. No questioning her loyalty to her Lord.
Every young woman and teen needs to read Hannah’s book to get a better handle on God’s love for them and to submit to His ways for their own joy and the joy of serving others. In fact, it would be a great book for a mother/daughter discussion time. A time to bond and learn how to be a Godly women after His own heart.
I received this book free from Moody Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

To be honest, I was not expecting a whole lot from this book. I expected to read a stero-typical “self help” book for Christian teens. My expectations where not very high at all. Was I ever wrong. I started reading UNcompromising by Hannah Farver and I could not put it down. This book hit home for me.
To be honest, I have been going through a horrible time lately. I have been struggling with a number of things and I have not been trusting God and letting him take the reigns in my life. When I started reading Hannah’s book, I found that she talked about every single one of the issues that I am facing. I couldn’t believe it! As I read through Hannah’s book, it gave me hope. It showed me that I COULD fix the mess that I have made of my life and that there is hope.
Hannah’s book is such a blessing to me. This book is now all marked up with tears, my thoughts, and pages/sentences are highlighted with my pencil. :)
Every teenage girl regardless of her age should read this book. This book has been a tremendous blessing to me and I LOVE it! It is the best book that I have read this year.

This book could be compared to the "Do Hard Things" which seems to be more for boys. I thought it was excellent!

Hannah Farver has written an incredibly insightful book for young girls teaching them biblical womanhood. She throws out the labels, the fads and the popular notions of beauty and encourages young girls to be pure and modest and to develop inner beauty through the work of the Holy Spirit.
In “Uncompromising” Farver asks young girls to put their focus on Christ and model purity and modesty in their behavior, their attitudes and their wardrobe. In her interviews with young Christian men, she discovered that when a girl dresses and acts impurely and immodestly it affects their walk with God.
“Uncompromising” is a must-read for any young girl who seeks to follow after Christ and model godly behavior. In today’s society when Hollywood dictates fashion, girls need to hear a different message. They need to know that God created them to be who they are, to look the way that they look and to dress modestly and act with purity of thought and manner.
I am grateful that Farver has committed herself to purity and modesty and is teaching other young girls to do the same. She has offered young girls a chance to be the difference God desires for them to be. God created us just the way we are whether we fit into size 5 jeans or size 14; have blue eyes or brown eyes or whether we are a blonde, brunette or redhead, and He loves us because He loves His creation.
I hope young women will read this book, accept themselves for who God created them to be and be modest and pure in their actions and dress. If you are the parent or grandparent of a daughter or a mentor for young women, give “Uncompromising” to them and encourage them to read it with an open heart.
