Review: Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better by Brant Hansen

Review: Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better

What! Is that a real word? Unoffendable?  It is now if it wasn’t before.  And one that needs to hang around.  Hansen has found a single change that could make all of life better.  In chapter after chapter he makes his case for being unoffendable.  Sometimes it looks like humility, and then it could look like forgiveness.  Other forms it could take are obedience and love.  

We know all those words so what is Hansen’s point?  His point is that anger in whatever form has to go.  All the time.  Every time.  No exceptions.  He looks at all the “but, what about…” angles and doesn’t miss very many of them.  Each time the answer is be unoffendable and it isn’t his idea.  It is Biblical.  Don’t believe that? 

Read this book.  “It’s not fair!” is even off the table.  Hansen doesn’t bludgeon his reader nor pretend anger and its siblings don’t exist.  His points use real life examples of how it works, and he tells of the difference it makes in his own life.  His style is so “winsome, humorous, and conversational” (Back cover says it best, so I used it) that you don’t mind agreeing with him on point after point. 
I think he’s one to something here and deserves to be heard more widely.  Read his book and more importantly, make that one change.

I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
