About "The Introvert Charismatic"
The modern Christian world ? most notably in charismatic and evangelical circles ? often seems dominated by extrovert behaviour. Those who are easy with exuberant worship, relish large crowds and are recharged by fellowship seem to set the tone. Introverts ? those who recharge their batteries in private ? can sometimes find charismatic culture a bit shallow, loud, driven or insensitive, but still love the things that God is doing. Those whose faith is at its most meaningful in private worship or one-to-one conversation can easily feel excluded ? as if they need to shout before God will move in power. Is introversion a sin to be forgiven, an illness to be healed or an oppression to be defeated? "It is none of those things," emphasizes Mark Tanner. "Introversion is a creation gift. It is part of the image of God." This book will be a means of freedom to those who read it: It is right to worship God with the personality you have been given; the Holy Spirit wants to use introverts; the world and the Church need them ? they are a gift.
