Customer Reviews for Zondervan Everybody's Normal 'Til You Get to Know Them

Zondervan Everybody's Normal 'Til You Get to Know Them

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.

I have used this with a large Team and it works very well. We have tied into the Fellowship of the Mat as a prayer tool for concerns and celebrations. Team members really liked this book, and we continue to use it in discussions, training and mentoring. I highly recommend using this book. And, Ortberg's humor keeps it interesting all the way through.

I have been a fan of John Ortberg's writing since reading, "If You Want to Walk on Water, Get Out of the Boat." He has a unique way of combining humor with applying God's word to our everyday lives. I recommend this book and others by this great author. C. Lane

Easy to read, entertaining, and a wealth of information. After reading this book, I was excited to share it with others. My small group is reading this now as a framework to help us build community. I can't wait to see the results!

If you want to improve your relationships, read this book! This is an interesting book that gives us God's view on how to overcome conflict, accept & forgive others, and empathize with them. If you want to understand God's desire for our relationships and how we can honor God by the way that we relate to others, read this book. Ortberg uses humorous stories and biblical anecdotes to open our eyes to Jesus' way of relating to others. A definite must-read!
