Product Description

What is the place of introverts in the church? It is assumed by many today that church leaders, or for that matter all leaders, must have the intangible quality of charisma and gregariousness. Author and introvert Adam McHugh believes the opposite. In Introverts in the Church: Finding our Place in an Extroverted Culture he argues that these skills are not only not required, they are often an indication of poor leadership skills. While McHugh recognizes the need for community, indeed the biblical command for it, he also recognizes that how community happens, or how Scripture wants it to happen is not exactly the way our extroverted culture says that it should occur. To this end, he explains how introverts approach relationships differently, how introverts can practice Christian spirituality in ways that are conducive to who they are as people, and how they can effectively serve the church. On this basis then, McHugh offers ways introverts can serve, lead, worship, and even evangelize effectively.

If you, or another leader in your church is introverted, this book is a must read. Undertaken as a personal apologetic, it developed into an explanation of how introvert operate, how they are spiritual, the challenges they face, and the sensitivities they maintain (we all have them), you need to give this book a read.

"Evangelicals talk a lot," writes Pastor Adam S. McHugh – a self-proclaimed introvert – in his book Introverts in the Church. Introverts are generally misunderstood in evangelical Christian circles. The culture surrounding the Church today is one that puts a higher value on people interacting with each other at Church functions (after-sermon fellowship, dinners, outreaches, and retreats). For an introvert, these can be overwhelming and not spiritually healthy. Pastor McHugh gives detailed definitions and analyses of introversion in the church to help both introverts and extroverts understand it. Some folks are deep thinkers and like to ponder issues before offering an opinion. Some are gifted listeners and should be appreciated for the way they put the needs and concerns of others before their own needs. Some are easily intimidated; some are shy; some are cautious; and some are wary. There can be many reasons for why people are silent or reserved or hesitant.

McHugh walks the readers through ways that they can participate in their church, as well as bring healing where introverts may be unintentionally discriminated against. The book seems to be designed to be used in a small group situation, as it has discussion questions associated with every chapter. Introverts in the Church provides a very interesting analysis of the current evangelical Christian climate, giving a voice to the quiet introverts in churches of most denominations.— Andrew Broersma, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
