Not entitled to get angry? Really?
It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it.
As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do.
In Unoffendable readers will find something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life with less stress. They’ll adjust their expectations to fit human nature and replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude.
The book offers a unique viewpoint, challenging the idea that Christians can ever harbor “righteous anger” or that there evenis such a thing for believers.
Few other books exist with such a radical, provocative proposal to consider. We have no right to anger. We are to get rid of it, period. Completely. And it is possible to choose to be “unoffendable.”
Through the author’s winsome, humorous, and conversational style, this book doesn’t add another thing to do on a stressed-out person’s ever-growing list. Better, it actually seeks to lift religious burdens from readers’ backs and allow them to experience the joy of gratitude, perhaps for the first time, every single day of their lives.
Going into this book remember that I thought it was an odd thing to write about. I wasn't even sure I agreed with the premise of the book and I most definitely didn't consider myself an "angry" person. But wow! I decided to read it because I highly respect Brant. I signed up to read a prerelease version and boy am I glad I did! This book will rock your wold. It'll humble you, convict you and (even more importantly) it will free you and help you learn to love those around you like Jesus. Highly recommend it to everyone.
This book will make you think about things you never have thought about before and bring to light parts of your character that you have never shown attention to! I definitely recommend this read! It is an easy read and a pretty short book relatively but the material is important and the response can be long lasting.
Thought-provoking and practical
Got to read a prerelease copy of the book. Highly recommend it if you struggle as I do with being too easily offended. Some key lessons I learned:
1. Don't be so shocked by other people's behavior.
2. Keep in mind that you're no better.
3. If you don't then you'll never truly grow in your relationships with those around you.
Sounds simple enough to embrace, but so much easier said than done. But Brant facilitates the reader's study and reflection on these truths by sharing stories, Bible passages and his unique sense of humor that you may not like at first but will eventually come to relish as I do if you keep on reading. And as you read you will find yourself being immediately challenged to put it into practice as you interact with those around you. There are not too many books out there that can say that! May God bless you on your journey to become more Unoffendable!
