Product Description

Since Christians often talk about community as one of their highest ideals it is shocking when they realize that, as Henri Nouwen insightfully noted, "Community is the place where the person you least want to live with always lives." Fortunately, John Ortberg shares our passion for community and is able to teach us how to live with and love one another. With the insight of a counselor and the heart of a pastor, Ortberg has written one of the best contemporary considerations of community.

Publisher's Description

¿Normal? ¿Quién es normal? Es seguro que usted no lo es. Tampoco lo es nadie que conozca. Ninguno de nosotros somos normales de acuerdo con la definición de Dios, y mientras más cerca estemos uno del otro, más evidente se hará esto. Sin embargo, para todas nuestras excentricidades, pecados y exabruptos, nos necesitamos los unos a los otros. Comunidad es más que solo una palabra… es uno de nuestros requerimientos más importantes. Así que ¿cómo pueden las personas con defectos y no normales como nosotros dominar las fuerzas que nos apartan y nos unen en las relaciones transformadoras de vida para las que Dios nos designó? En Todos son normales hasta que los conoces, el profesor y autor de éxitos de ventas, John Ortberg, hace énfasis en aquello que marca nuestra comunidad. Tendrás pensamientos inspiradores al mirar en el corazón de Dios, de los demás y en el tuyo propio. Aún mejor, obtendrás sabiduría y las herramientas para poder acercarte a otros en formas poderosas e impactantes. Con humor, perspicacia y su don para narrar historias, Ortberg muestra cómo la comunidad paga grandes dividendos en felicidad, salud, respaldo y desarrollo. Es ahí cuando todos nosotros, personas extrañas y difíciles de tratar, encontramos el amor de Dios de manera tangible y descubrimos el poder transformador de ser amado, aceptado y valorado justo en la forma que somos.

Publisher's Weekly

There are no normal people, asserts prolific author and pastor Ortberg (If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat; The Life You've Always Wanted), and the sooner Christians accept this disquieting truth, the healthier they and their churches will be. In this mediocre treatise on Christian community, Ortberg implicates Christians who are constantly on the run and on the most superficial terms with their fellows. Citing numerous biblical stories where Jesus turned the tables on foes and drew in unlovable and undesirable people, Ortberg nicely communicates his passion for seeing past external appearances and delving deeply into people's hearts and souls. Christians, he says, must learn to communicate on Jesus' terms; they should practice unconditional love, strive for authenticity and build mutual trust. While Ortberg warns readers to be circumspect with personal disclosure, he contends that the modern Christian church has failed miserably in biblical communication, especially in loving confrontation. Still, the overall message of this book is upbeat, as Ortberg reminds readers of the positive aspects found in solid relationships, which he names as genuine forgiveness, deliberate inclusion and heartfelt gratitude. While this message is ageless, it is certainly not new; "Christian living" bookshelves are crowded with volumes on spiritual formation, congregational life, group prayer and communication. Among these, Ortberg's offering loses its impact quickly because of poor organization, various tangents and over-long chapters. (Mar.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
