Summary:
American church culture seems largely designed for the extroverted, but it's estimated that half of the American population is introverted. They're often left wondering how-- or if-- they fit in the kingdom of God. Hansen looks to answer questions, such as "If I don't relate to God as emotionally as others do, is something wrong with me?" And, "Is depression a sign of a lack of faith?" Highly provocative and personal, Hansen's book is leavened with a distinct, dry, self-effacing humor.
