"Way to go, Jennie! Loved this book! Its one thing to write well about the high concepts of faith or, alternatively, about the nitty gritty of real life. To write well about both grace and Netflix, both the sufficiency of Christ and also homeworkthats very hard to do, and Jennie does it beautifully. Ive watched her walk this path, and Ive learned from her along the way. Im so glad shes inviting us all into this important conversation."

I am so grateful that my friend Jennie Allen, in Nothing to Prove, gives us all a realignment with the truth of Scripture. This book will help you take your eyes off your problems and put them back on Gods promises."
Christine Caine, founder of A21 and Propel Women
"Jennie is one of those rare people who holds a fiery and prophetic vision with such tenderness and grace. And because of that, hers is a voice Im always reading and learning from. In this book she gets my nose in the Scriptures and my knees on the ground, and in my opinion a book that does that is as good as it gets."
Jefferson Bethke, New York Times best-selling author of Jesus > Religion

Jesus shouted this to a crowd of confused, weak, spiritually thirsty people, tired from trying so hard to be enough and do enoughpeople like me and you and Jennie Allen. This honest, wonderful book is Jennies humble shout that Jesus is telling the truth. Its her story of finding freedom and refreshment. And if we listen to her, it can be our story too."
Jon Bloom, cofounder of Desiring God and author of Not by Sight
