The In-Between Place – Blog Tour w/ Review & Giveaway

The In-Between Place JustRead Blog Tour
Welcome to the Blog Tour for The In-Between Place by Kat Armstrong, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

The In-Between PlaceTitle: The In-Between Place
Author: Kat Armstrong
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: January 5, 2021
Genre: Christian Life/Spiritual Growth

Jesus’ journey to the woman at the well in Samaria offers insights and hope for women today to make peace with the past, find hope in the present, and step into the future.

God wants us to move toward the goodness He has planned for us. But what do we do when challenges stop our forward momentum? What’s the next step when we fall into a pit of despair with the determination knocked right out of us?

On his way from Judea to Galilee, Jesus traveled through Samaria, a broken place everyone knew to avoid. In Samaria he stopped in Shechem, where evil had gained such a foothold of power that it eventually reigned. Yet the place once condemned as somewhere no one wanted to visit—let alone hang out in for a while—was the location of one Samaritan woman’s most hope-filled encounter with the Savior.

The In-Between Place offers deeply important insights to anyone who feels stuck and can’t see a way forward. It is for the person who feels that if she looks left, her face will be scraped by an immovable boulder, and if she looks right, she’ll see nothing but hard to handle. It’s for the person who feels lost and is not sure she is worth the effort to be found, for the person who feels overlooked and unfulfilled. Because sometimes Jesus saves our greatest spiritual breakthroughs for our in-between places.

MY REVIEW

As I first started diving into this read I was enjoying it and had high hopes for it. As someone who is currently living in a situation you might consider an “in-between place” I had high hopes. As much as I wanted to love it though, I felt myself growing increasingly uncomfortable with some of the statements and claims that were made. The chapters seemed unfocused to the topics at hand and seemed to all cycle back to complaining about men. There were Bible stories connected that I felt uneasy accepting her interpretations on and I didn’t agree with the connections made. I think she had good points she was trying to make, but I think she missed the point in her delivery. The author made statements that she promised she wasn’t a feminist, but it still came off that way. Don’t get me wrong, she also made some good points, but I think she also went too far. The book seemed to be more about conflicts between men and women than it did the in-between places. For me it wasn’t a favorite read, but I’d recommend checking out some other reviews before basing your decision to read or not.
