Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"I'm not a good person."

Seriously, who says that?

Practically everyone, from priests to prisoners, thinks of themselves as morally better than average. So why change our minds? What good could possibly come from admitting that most of us are far more
self-righteous than righteous?

In this book, Brant Hansen makes an entertaining and insightful case that we can find great freedom in admitting we're not so wonderful after all. It can help us improve relationships, be better thinkers and listeners, and even make us more fun to be around.

In his conversational, fun-to-read, and delightfully self-effacing style, Hansen draws from biblical insight and the work of everyone from esteemed social psychologists to comedians to show that the sooner we get over ourselves and admit the truth, the sooner we're free to live a more lighthearted, fruitful, fun-loving life.

Because the humble life is truly your best one.


"Most of the time, the truth is hard for us to hear. But when it comes with the good-natured humor and crazy-life antics of Brant Hansen, it is God's gift to our souls."--
Kyle Idleman, senior pastor of Southeast Christian Church and author of Not a Fan and Don't Give Up

"Brant has the rare ability to evoke simultaneous bouts of laughter and moans of conviction. Fresh, provocative, and highly entertaining."--
Mike Donehey, lead singer of Tenth Avenue North and author of Finding God's Life for My Will

Brant Hansen is an author, nationally syndicated radio host, and advocate for healing children with correctible disabilities through CURE International.

He’s won multiple “personality of the year” awards for his work on his offbeat and quirky radio show which airs on more than 200 stations. His podcast with his friend and radio producer, Sherri Lynn (“The Brant and Sherri Oddcast”) has been downloaded millions of times.

He leverages his radio platform to advance the work of CURE International, a global ministry of hospitals and programs that offer healing for children with correctible disabilities.

His first book, Unoffendable, prompted a national discussion on the idea of forgiveness, and our culture’s embrace of self-righteous anger.

His second book, both provocative and very personal, and will be released in November of 2017: Blessed are the Misfits: Great News for Those Who Are Introverts, Spiritual Strugglers, or Just Feel Like They’re Missing Something. In this book, Hansen addresses his own, and many others’, inability to “feel God’s presence”, and how God might Himself feel about that.

Brant speaks to groups/conferences/churches when his schedule allows.

He has written for CNN.com, The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Relevant, and numerous other outlets on matters as varied as public policy, culture, sports, Asperger’s Syndrome, and faith. He’s been a game inventor, fronted a modern rock band, still dabbles in singing and songwriting.

He’s traveled extensively throughout the world for CURE and other groups, including multiple trips to CURE’s hospital for women and children in Afghanistan.

He has been married for 27 years to Carolyn, and they have two grown children.
