Warning: If modern church culture makes perfect sense to you, and you always fit in seamlessly, dont read this. As for the rest of us…
While American church culture (and American culture at large) seems largely designed for the extroverted, its estimated that half of the American population is introverted, and theyre often left wondering how, even if, they fit in the kingdom of God. As one of them, popular radio host Brant Hansen brings news. Its wonderful, refreshing, and never-been-said-this-way-before good news.
In his unique style, Hansen looks to answer questions that millions of people carry with them each day:
- If I dont relate to God as emotionally as others do, is something wrong with me?
- How does one approach God, and approach faith, when devoid of the "good feelings" that seem to drive so much of evangelical church culture?
- How does God interact with those who seem spiritually numb?
- Is the absence of faith-based emotion a sign of that God has moved on or was never there?
- What if we arent good at talking to people about our faith, or good at talking to people at all?
- What if Im told Im too analytical, that I "think too much"?
- Where does a person who suffers from depression fit in the kingdom? Is depression a sure sign of a lack of faith?
This book is good news for people who are desperately looking for it. (And for their loved ones!)
Its also for those who want to believe in Jesus, but inwardly fear that they dont belong, worry that dont have the requisite emotion-based relationship with God, and are starving for good news.
Blessed Are the Misfits is going to generate discussion, and lots of it. Its simultaneously highly provocative and humbly personal. Its also leavened with a distinct, dry, self-effacing humor that is a hallmark of Hansens on-air, writing, and public speaking style.
Brant Hansen is considered one of the top radio hosts in the country. He has won multiple "Personality of the Year" awards from Christian Music Broadcasters and Radio and Records Magazine. (He's also well aware that he shouldn't put "multiple" next to "personality" because it sounds like a very strange award he keeps winning, but he does it anyway.) Brant is a sought-after speaker, known for a style that manages to be direct, hilarious, and disarming.
Brant's life experiences are unique: He also works as "Storyteller" with CURE International, a global network of hospitals and programs for children with correctible disabilities. He has traveled widely for CURE, including multiple visits to CURE's hospital for women and children in Afghanistan. In addition to his books, Unoffendable, Blessed are the Misfits, The Truth About Us, and The Men We Need. Brant has written for the Washington Post, USNews.com, CNN.com, InTouch, and Relevant.
He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome as an adult, and talks about it extensively on his radio show, attracting a nationwide following among "Aspies" and their families. (He talks about this in his popular "I Am Second" video.) Brant has been married for thirty-one years to Carolyn, and they have two adult children.
