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 requirements. So how do flawed, abnormal people such as ourselves master the forces that can drive us apart and come together in the life-changing relationships God designed us for? In Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them, teacher and best-selling 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 humor, 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.

Community: the Essence of Human Relationships, the Nature of God God calls us to create community with "as-is" people_to love and be loved, to know and be known This is not a book for normal people to learn how to handle difficult people_there is no such thing. This is a book about how imperfect people can pursue community with other imperfect people. To love and be loved is the fiercest longing of the soul. Community_living in vital relationship with others_is essential to human life. In his new book John Ortberg explores the biblical vision of community as the place God made for us and the place where God meets us. Using the same popular, conversational style of his best-selling and Christianity Today award-winning book If You Want to Walk on Water, You9ve Got to Get Out of the Boat, Ortberg invites readers to experience the richness and depth of true community. Just like the paralyzed man in the New Testament who had to be carried on his mat by his friends and then lowered through the roof into Jesus9 presence, we all need help from dedicated friends. Our mat may be an uncontrollable temper, an inability to trust, or paralyzing fear. The only way to get help_and get near to Jesus_is to let trustworthy friends see our brokenness and to ask them for help. As we allow them to gather around our weakness, the mat_that which we are most ashamed of_becomes the connecting point for deeper relationships.
