Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them

John Ortberg



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 is.


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 needs. So how do flawed abnormal people such as ourselves master the forces that can drive us apart or make us come together in the life-changing relationships God designed for us?


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 humour, 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.
