Food. Clothes. Spending. Media. Possessions. Waste. Stress. Jen and her family would spend 30 days on each topic, boiling it down to the number seven. Only eat seven foods, wear seven articles of clothing, and spend money in seven places. Eliminate use of seven media types, give away seven things each day for one month, adopt seven green habits, and observe "seven sacred pauses".
So, what's the payoff from living a deeply reduced life? It's the discovery of a greatly increased God - a call toward Christlike simplicity and generosity that transcends a social experiment to become a radically better existence. 7 is funny, raw, and not a guilt trip in the making, so come along and consider what Jesus' version of rich, blessed, and generous might look like in your life.

Wish the author had narrated the book herself.
If you could sum up 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess in three words, what would they be?
Jen Hatmaker is an incredible speaker. I wish the author had narrated the book herself. This narration has mispronunciations in a few places that are ridiculous. If the author is an amazing, successful speaker, why on earth not have the author narrate themselves?
What did you like best about this story?
Made me rethink many things about the way we live.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Mispronunciations. Her sarcasm is forced when the writer so clearly has an ease and comfort in her writing style. She's not Jen Hatmaker.
What did you learn from 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess that you would use in your daily life?
So many things it's impossible to write in this box.

10 Star book!
I've heard Jen Hatmaker in person recently, and the narration captured her style to a "T". This book was incredibly thought-provoking as it untangled the tension around the idea of the excess we find ourselves swimming through daily. I will listen to this book again, if not many times.
