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.

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.
