But just as certain is the fact that the same God who led us in will lead us out. As The Red Sea Rules makes clear, He is in control.

Normal? Who's normal?

Not you, that's for sure! No one you've ever met, either. None of us are normal according to God's definition, and the closer we get to each other, the plainer that becomes. Yet for all our quirks, sins, and jagged edges, we need each other. Community is more than just a word---it is one of our most fundamental requirements. So how do flawed, abnormal people such as ourselves master the forces that can drive us apart and come together in the life-changing relationships God designed us for?

In Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them, teacher and bestselling author John Ortberg zooms in on the things that make community tick. You'll get a thought-provoking look at God's heart, at others, and at yourself. Even better, you'll gain wisdom and tools for drawing closer to others in powerful, impactful ways. With humor, insight, and a gift for storytelling, Ortberg shows how community pays tremendous dividends in happiness, health, support, and growth. It's where all of us weird, unwieldy people encounter God's love in tangible ways and discover the transforming power of being loved, accepted, and valued just the way we are. Includes study questions at the end of each chapter. Softcover.

In the 1970's, the rock group Kansas sang about how life is "dust in the wind." They could have been quoting the writer of Ecclesiastes whose ancient book of wisdom unwraps three key themes: "meaningless, meaningless" - a look at the futility of wisdom, wishes and work, "chasing the wind" - how desire and deeds are found wanting, and "under the sun" - the curses and joys of toil, treasure and termination Despite the Teacher's pessimistic tone, in Chasing the Wind author Robert White discovers there is hope at the "end of the matter." Includes Discussion Questions at the end of each chapter.

  • What does it look like to be a provider?
  • What does it mean to lead with sensitivity?
