The Introvert Charismatic

Full Product Description

In The Introvert Charismatic, Mark Tanner tells the rest of the Church what introvert Christians have known about themselves all along.

In a world that's dominated by extroverts, The Christian world - and notably the charismatic and evangelical world - seems to be no different. But is it missing out on their particular talents and values?

Mark Tanner says it is, and it can no longer afford that loss.

So what is an introvert charismatic, and is such a thing  a sin to be forgiven, an illness to be healed or an oppression to be defeated? "It is none of those things," says Mark Tanner. "Introversion is a creation gift. It is part of the image of God."

What's the difference between introvert and extrovert, and does it matter?

Put briefly, whether you're introvert or extrovert depends on where you draw your energy and what drains it away. In the church this energy might be spiritual just as much as physical, intellectual and emotional.

Extrovert Christians relish large crowds. They're recharged by exuberant worship and fellowship. Introverts recharge their spiritual batteries in private worship or one-to-one conversation They can find charismatic culture shallow, loud, driven and insensitive.

Introverts have tremendous gifts to bring to others especially listening abilities. Because introverts process internally, they can a non-judgmental presence that helps others toward God.

Though many introverts find themselves drained by people and need alone time to recharge, there's nothing wrong with you if you are an introvert.

Mark explains it is OK to worship God with the nature you have been given; the Holy Spirit can use introverts; and the world needs both. Learn how to use your Christian introvert skills and lead, encourage and inspire your fellowship's introvert charismatics.

Publisher's Description

The Christian world - and notably the charismatic and evangelical world - seems dominated by extroverts.

Those who are easy with exuberant worship, relish large crowds and are recharged by fellowship seem to set the tone. Those whose faith is at its most meaningful in private worship or one-to-one conversation often feel excluded - as if we need to shout before God will move in power. Introverts, those who recharge their batteries in private, find charismatic culture can, on occasions, seem shallow, loud, driven and insensitive, but yet love the stuff God is doing.

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." Mark explains it is ok to worship God with the nature you have been given; the Holy Spirit can use introverts; and the world needs both.
