It's a radical, provocative idea: We're not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own "righteous anger" is a myth. It is the number-one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it.
As it turns out, giving up our "right" to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do. In Unoffendable, listeners will find something of immeasurable value - a concrete, practical way to live life with less stress. They'll adjust their expectations to fit human nature and replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude.
Through the author's winsome, humorous, and conversational style, this book doesn't add another thing to do on a stressed-out person's ever-growing list. Unoffendable actually seeks to lift religious burdens from our backs and allow us to experience the joy of gratitude, perhaps for the first time, every single day of our lives.

"[A] charming handbook for the contemporary Christian that will also find its audience among pastors." (Library Journal)
I loved listening to this book. it has just the right amount of humor mixed in with inspirational quotes and scripture. I will definitely be reading or listening to this book again!
Yes, I likely will in the next month or two. It really is an incredible book with a powerful message wrapped in humor. I agree with everything he says in this book.
His narration of this book coupled with the actual book. It is so true though. We are called to not be offended in so much of life. We completely miss over that bit of the bible though, don't we? He gives some good stories and a great message.
I have not. But! This reading of his book was great. I'm sure it helps that he's a radio host though.
No, I have three kids.
Yes. Ahem. Buy this book. Or use a credit. One of those.
This book was an encouragement on so many different levels… First the honesty – Hansen has Aspergers so he cant lie. Is it blunt? Thank God, YES!! I love ministers who can turn a phrase in 15 different ways, but I don't have time for that… So those books go half-read. I must be busy going about my Father's business, which at this time appears to be (partly) encouraging our Aspergers grandson...one reason why no one has time for books heavy-laden with verbiage. Hansen, if you are reading this review, thank you for your honesty ...it made all the difference in the way I will be interacting with others....hope to read it with a group this Fall
My mom sent me this book sometimes I feel like she's trying to send me discrete but kind messages I have just finished this book and will be re-reading it for what I assume will be the rest of my life because this not being offended thing is what I'm assuming is supposed to be a lifestyle and that sounds really hard especially because I'm very good at being offended so I will keep reading this book and keep trying to hold on tightly to little parts of it and not be offended when people say I am too easily offended
