“Unoffendable” by Brant Hansen

Ouch.

“Unoffendable” by Brant Hansen, published by W Publishing Group, is a very challenging read.

Hansen challenges the idea that we, as Christians, have a right to be angry. I really enjoyed his laid back writing style – even though the content was particularly challenging for me.

The chapter titles won’t give much away, “Six Billion Rings,” “The World’s Worst Bedtime Story,” “Atheists, Socialists and Toast,” for example. But, the content is extremely valuable.

He makes the case that Christ was forgiving and open and winsome and welcoming and when we hang on to to our supposed entitled anger, we are none of those things.

As one who is often guilty of being offended, his admonition that this is a product of an enlarged ego hurt. But, it’s true. I would encourage everyone to read this book – especially those who are easily offended, and those who think they don’t need it.

Thomas Nelson provides a free copy of these books for review through their “Booklook Blogger” Program www.booklookbloggers.com ; however, I am not required to give a positive review of the book.
