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

Rate this book
It turns out giving up your “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things you can do. 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. But what if Christians were the most unoffendable people on the planet? In Unoffendable you will find concrete, practical ways to live life with less stress, including:  In a humorous and conversational style, Unoffendable 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—flourishing the way God intended.

This is a book that you must read slowly. Not because it's difficult, but because these simple and foundational truths will have you sitting in bed with your mouth hanging open. Or dope-slapping yourself. Or crying. Or laughing out loud (literally) and sharing that nugget on Facebook or Twitter.

Do we have a right to be angry? Is it true that without anger we can't do anything worthwhile? Brant Hansen addresses these questions. Personal stories, along with scripture and other references, do a very good job of giving us reason to drop the anger and choose instead to be Unoffendable.

Personally, this book has helped me immensely. As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression, I have seen a huge improvement in my emotional health. My favorite concept was giving up the phrase, "I can't believe they did that!" Once I stopped being surprised at others' failures, as well as my own, I was able to let things go and celebrate the good. My stress levels are much lower and I'm happier, that's for sure.

If you've ever stayed up at night stewing over an offense, lost your temper, or wondered how to respond to those nasty comments on your blog, this book is for you. This is one that I will be reading again and again!

First off, let me say that there is nothing "new" in this book. Hansen doesn't unpack Greek words, apply some great philosophy or argument (though he does enjoy both), or drop some serious theological knowledge on you. What he does is point to the very heart of the Bible (Love God, Love Others) and explain what that looks like. He discusses the stupidity of anger, the infinite value of humility, and the true source of our worth, our contentment, and our peace.

When my brother was little, he had trouble pronouncing a few letters. I remember "l" and "r" were particularly irksome. It took him some time to get words out, and kids being kids, their attention would wane. They'd look away, their eyes drawn to something else, and they'd only half hear him. So my brother would grab any kid who wasn't giving him 100% by the chin and turn the rugrat's face toward him and hold it until he'd finished saying what needed to be said. Not the most polite method I know, but it was effective. That's what Hansen does with this book. He grabs your chin, holds your attention (with honesty and humor), and forces you to listen to something you "know" but have chosen to forget/ignore/push under the rug.

So no...nothing earth shattering here. But the gospel is so earth shattering on its own it hardly needs us to dress it up. Hansen simply presents a simple message and says, "Look at this! Attempt to grasp this marvelous gift you've been given." When we do, "the things of earth grow strangely dim," and everything suddenly gains the correct perspective. Highly enjoyable, fun, and thought-provoking read.

I'm not really sure where to start with this review...This book was so challenging that I feel that I need to go through it again. Mind you, it wasn't challenging on a readability level - it was actually a relatively "easy" read as far as the words go. It's the concept that challenged me...I have no right to get offended, no right to "righteous" anger? That's not an easy concept to grasp.

From the dedication (To all those who want grace for themselves, but struggle to extend it to others. Wait: that's everybody), to the very end, Hansen points out that it's not my "job" to fret over what everyone else is doing wrong; I am not in control. It calls me to let go of the idea that I have any control over people, places and situations, because I don't. In chapter 2, he says, "Being offended is a tiring business. Letting go gives you energy.", and "I can let stuff go because it's not all about me. Simply reminding myself to refuse to take offense is a big part of the battle." And he's right...Since finishing the book, I now make a concerted effort to stop and remind myself that it's truly not about me. When someone cuts me off in traffic...well, I've undoubtedly done the same thing or worse. Through this book, I am working on not being surprised or upset at other's failures, as well as my own. It's freeing me to love people (and myself) just as we are.

Brant backs up his book clearly with scripture in an easily understood way. He uses personal experiences and shares his struggles which makes the book real. Even though it's challenging on a spiritual, personal level, it's written in a fun way. If you have ever listened to Brant Hansen on the radio, you know that he has a somewhat "warped" sense of humor, and you never really know what he might say next. It's the same in the book. He makes this concept a bit easier to digest because you know he is right there with you.

What if--and hear me out--we Christians were the least offendable people instead of the most offendable? What if we practiced forgiveness and kindness instead of anger? We can not like something and not handle that with offense and rage.

I love Brant Hansen and this reaffirms that someone out there feels the way I feel.

Jesus Got Angry Too

Brant Hansen makes an important point in today’s outrage culture. Christians too often are easily offended and act out their anger in ways that do not follow Jesus’ teachings. Hansen argues that our sense of outage is often rooted in our own sense of self-righteousness, while Jesus calls us to love those who are different from us and might offend us.

While I agree with Hansen’s basic point, I have some serious issues with his argument.

Hansen simply leaves out Scripture and examples that counter or at least complicate his thesis. He ignores the prophetic voice in the Old Testament that convicts Israel of its injustices against the weak and vulnerable. He ignores Jesus’ anger in the Temple against the money changers. He ignores Paul’s anger against the Judaizers in his epistle to the Galatians. He uses a Martin Luther King quote on love, but ignores King’s scathing indictment against moderate white clergy in “Letter From Birmingham Jail.”

Not all anger is the same. Not all anger is rooted in pettiness or self-righteousness. As Yolanda Pierce argues about the Civil Rights Movement and Black Lives Matter, “Anger is not the opposite of love. Righteous anger does not preclude the possibility of non-violent resistance. The prophetic work of “turning over the tables” and fighting against the forces of injustice requires the complete range of human capacity, including love, anger, hope, joy, and even moments of despair.”

While Hansen has a point in “Unoffendable,” his overly simplistic treatment of Scripture robs his argument of the full range of human emotion and experience present in the Bible.

This book made me re-think a lot. I've been told all my life about righteous anger, shown so many times that it was okay to be angry, annoyed, or offended if the thing you were angry, annoyed, or offended over was bad.
This book kind of debunked a lot of the things I thought weren't a problem. He showed in a biblical, clear way how it was a problem. This book showed how we are hurting other people, ourselves, and our witness by being offended.
I really needed this book, and I hope to be able to re-read it sometimes when I have more time to just soak it in.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone. It is an eye-opener.

This book is a hard pill to swallow, but one that definitely needs to be taken.

Letting go of all anger, bitterness, and resentment can be a difficult task; but it's one that needs to be done in order to live a happier life, as well as a less stressful one. By letting go, we can change the focus from oneself to serving others as Jesus served others.

Jesus loved us, and just wants us to love others as he first loved us. Sounds easy, right? Wrong. It asks us to share our love even with EVERYONE, not only to those that are just like us.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book at first. I had listened to Brant on the radio several times. And I knew from listening that he could always make me laugh, but he also had a way to break out some real thought provoking messages. This book is no different. It brought about the occasional chuckle at Brant being Brant. But mostly it makes you think about how you're going about your life, and letting all the negative work against your ultimate goal of loving others. Reading this book can help make a step in the right direction.

I also appreciated how Brant put this book in a format in which everyone can understand it. He didn't dumb anything down, but everything is put in terms that allow even the least scholarly to understand.

Though the concepts behind this book make the most sense when examined through the lens of the Bible, they are so "other" that I am actually a tad reluctant to label this as a "Christian book". Not that it's wishy-washy -- far from it. But the ideas presented here are so very antithetical to an error that seems to have become almost sacramental in Christianity -- both conservative and progressive -- that I'm not sure where Brant Hansen's "Unoffendable" fits. And that's a Good Thing.

So what is this radical idea that Hansen presents? Simply this: Being offended is not a Christian virtue. And not only is it not a virtue, but it's never called for.

You see, when I take offense at something Joe did, I am standing in judgment of Joe's actions. Meanwhile, Joe has taken offense at something I did. And both of us are so wrapped up in these offenses, that neither of us are grateful for the forgiveness that God has already granted both of us. We've lost the plot; we aren't trusting God.

But what about sin? Surely we should be angry at sin, right? Well, the Bible tells us that God poured out His wrath at everyone's sin onto Jesus on the cross. Are you telling me that He has to climb back up on that cross to endure your wrath, too?

Hansen answers several other objections to his idea -- largely with Scripture, so if you disagree, take it up with God. But there is one upshot of his thesis that is the most damning to our perspective -- one that, ironically, many will find offensive. That concept: there is no such thing as "righteous anger".

Immediately comes the rebuttal: Ephesians 4:26 says, "Be angry, and sin not." Right there, it would seem that Christians not only have permission to be angry, but are told that they ought to be. But other translations say, "When you are angry, do not sin." That's definitely not a command to be angry, and doesn't even really sound like permission.

But even if you dismiss those translations, we are told later in the same paragraph to "get rid of" a bunch of things. And you know what's in that list? Anger. Add to that a host of other Scriptures that all speak negatively of anger, and "be angry" sounds less and less like the best way to interpret the concept.

This even goes for injustice. Hansen notes that we have conflated "anger" and "action". Some Christian leaders even state that we can't have the latter without the former. But here's the thing: the cross, the ultimate righting of wrong, was not because God was angry at sin; it was because God loves us. Love is the motivation behind seeking to correct injustice. If someone needs "righteous anger" to fuel their pursuit of justice, I have to question their dedication to justice.

Being angry and taking offense come naturally to us. Should that not be a warning bell for us? That which is easy to do rarely is what we ought to do. Or as Hansen puts it: Anger, selfishness, defensiveness and judgmentalism are "not exceptional ... but grace is."

So many people take offense to the point that anger is often seen as a socially acceptable emotion. People spout their so-called righteous anger across social media all the time, and Brant Hansen encourages us to wonder whether this should be the case. As the host of a radio show, he's been the butt of offense many times. I love the irate call from a listener who heard him say, 'The weather will be hotter than it should be for this time of year.' The caller ticked him off, saying, 'God always sets the weather, so it's always perfect.'

'To those who reason, 'God gets angry, so we should be allowed to,' he would say, 'Well, God's entitled to do a lot of things we're not, such as judging and taking vengeance.' When we're as guilty as the targets of our wrath, we're not in a good position to react with strong indignation. And to those who say that it's our duty to get angry at injustice, he'd reply that taking action and fuming with anger aren't necessarily synonymous.

Hansen attempts to get to the root of why humans tend to be so volatile and easy to set off when it comes to taking offense. Situations in which others seem to be getting as much grace or privilege for less work than others may be enough to do it. Insecurity about our positions tend to make us unwilling to show grace. We justify offenses as righteous anger, much like the Prodigal Son's older brother. I like the way he urges us to embrace the 'glorious unfairness' as Jesus has been offensive in these ways for centuries.

He adds that maybe a tendency to take offense is a bit like having an infected limb. Everyone has an ego, but when it's swollen and over-sized, it's constantly being injured and threatened. It's interesting that a book about being unoffendable ends up having as much to say about true humility. He challenges us to see that we place enormous pressure on ourselves in our quests to be significant, and anything that threatens our efforts may make us flare. Truly humble folk are more difficult to offend, because they know that the things we think matter a lot, really don't matter so much.

In spite of Brant Hansen's friendly, easy-going style, I wouldn't be surprised if the content of this book offends a few people, but I'm wondering whether anyone will be brave enough to say so! I'll keep an eye on reviews to find out. I enjoyed and recommend it.

Thanks to Net Galley and Thomas Nelson for my review copy.

This is one of those not-great books that would have made a good essay. Like many Christian-living books, it's built on a single concept that made for a good hook but gets repetitive when there's not really enough more to it to justify multiple chapters. I appreciate the idea, I'm just not sure I needed to spend the time and money reading it in this format as opposed to an article in Relevant Magazine or something similar.

Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better by Brant Hansen is very highly recommended life changing book. Today I am choosing to not be offended.

Hansen, in a very accessible, conversational style full of self-deprecating humor, draws the attention of Christians to a Biblical truth that we may be ignoring. We need to deliberately choose to not be angry, even righteous anger, and not take offense. We need to take a step forward in our faith and walk with God and choose to be unoffendable.

Hansen writes, "Not only can we choose to be unoffendable; we should choose that. We should forfeit our right to be offended. That means forfeiting our right to hold on to anger. When we do this, we’ll be making a sacrifice that’s very pleasing to God. It strikes at our very pride. It forces us not only to think about humility, but to actually be humble."

As humans we actually like to be angry. Anger offers us a sense of moral superiority. The problem is when anger takes up residence in our hearts. We need to do what Dr. Martin Luther King recommended: "recognize injustice, grieve it, and act against it - but without rage, without malice, and without anger." Learning to let things go, not take offense, not make it personal, is the biggest hurdle we face. Often whatever we are scandalized over or upset about doesn't even have anything to do with us; it's someone else's behavior.

If we can manage to not be offended and keep a mindset of gratitude life will go much better for us. "Because that’s the thing about gratitude and anger: They can’t coexist. It’s one or the other. One drains the very life from you. The other fills your life with wonder. Choose wisely." And if you are constantly being offended it might be time to honestly evaluate your inflamed ego. If you can have an attitude of gratitude and humility, you will quite naturally be less easily offended.

Hansen summarizes that, "Choosing to be unoffendable means choosing to be humble. Not only that, the practice teaches humility. Once you’ve decided you can’t control other people; once you’ve reconciled yourself to the fact that the world, and its people, are broken; once you’ve realized your own moral failure before God; once you’ve abandoned the idea that your significance comes from anything other than God, you’re growing in humility, and that’s exactly where God wants us all." "When we surrender our perceived “rights,” when we let go of our attempts to manipulate, we find—surprise!—joy." And wouldn't anyone choose joy over being angry and offended all the time?

This would be an excellent resource for a small group study or any individual who wants to break the easy-to-take-offense cycle that seems so common today. And, although this is firmly a Christian book, the world at large could do with a dose of being unoffendable. This is an eye-opening look at something most Christians know at some level but need to take that knowledge to heart. It's time to be unoffendable and acknowledge that God is in charge.

Misguided intentions.

There are a few nuggets but it doesn't take much rat poison to kill. His message in a nutshell: Dont worry about being righteous and all that sin stuff. If you obey God that is bad. Just get along and love people and Jesus by your own definition of love. The rest will sort itself out in the wash. We have a world to change and this message keeps everything the same. Even atheists can love people and feed the homeless. Obedience is true trust according to my Bible, that is what truly changes everything.

I read this in one sitting before book club (#forgetful), so I don't think I really got to dive deep into this book in order to give a well-thought out review. But it was interesting and a needed message. The humor was awesome, I laughed out loud throughout the book.

1. quite good. surprisingly (?) some stuff that made me question my views on anger and offense, so, as that was the point of reading it, yay.
2. the writer's style was not my favorite. kind of annoying at times (but he won't get offended if I say so...) ;) but at least it was a very easy and light read.
3. a few/lot of the points on not being offended at others for their sin reminded me of the last book I finished; the Gospel Comes With a House Key. I think that's just how my brain works, tying in books I just read or what I'm thinking about with what I'm currently reading. probably everyone's brains generally work that way. :p
4. although it challenged my thinking, I'm still trying to figure out; how do you reconcile the verse "be angry and do not sin" with "let all anger, clamor, evil speaking, [etc] be put away from you"? maybe a good question to ask and have a group discussion... also the concept of being offended or angry at sin: difference between the sin and the sinner? and how to treat people with love who have serious sin problems...
obviously still thinking through this...

“The church is not made up of natural friends, it’s made up of natural enemies.”

Whew, get ready for some stomped toes. This was a really good read with a good reminder of where our perspective needs to be. When we live our lives in joy and gratitude of all that’s been forgiven of us, it’s a whole lot harder to keep a constant score of all the wrongs done against us. We are all just as sinful and lost as our fellow brothers. It’s time we let go of the nitpicking and constant judgement and focus instead on the grace we ourselves have been given!

Good lesson! I learned to consider others circumstances before deciding whether I should be offended or not.
I listened to this audiobook with my Mom which I think was good for me, because some things the author said did not completly line up with scripture. This was a good read and I am glad I read it even though it took me awhile to get through.

I’m lucky enough to have snagged an ARC from the publisher—and I’m glad I did. I still have it on preorder and will definitely read it again when it delivers to my Kindle. I look forward to reading it again soon.

You might start reading this book because it was written by Brant Hansen—radio host, nerd, lover of plain toast. He’s super likable and there’s probably something about The Lord of the Rings or maybe goats. When you start reading, you’ll find LOTR and goats, but you’ll get (like you usually do with Brant) so much more.

I started listening to Brant when he was still on the radio here in south Florida. Some mornings I felt like he and I were the only two people awake. I’d be on my commute to get in little airplanes and teach kids to fly and he’d be at the mic trying to figure out what button did what before the sun came up. Dead air wasn’t completely out of the question in the early mornings, haha. I kept listening to Brant because he’s authentic. Christian radio is great—but Brant isn’t here to play into the Christian subculture. He’s here because he loves Jesus. He’s kind of a misfit and he has a home in Jesus.

This book—this book should be read before any other book on your TBR list. Brant, I can’t give you accolades for coming up with radical ideas that no one has ever heard before. They’re pretty much not your ideas. They’ve been around for kind of awhile. But Brant—I really mean this—

Thank you.

Thank you for saying the truth of what is misunderstood, warped, or flat out denied by Christians. Anger is not ours to hold onto.

Brant—this year, more than any other in my life, this is exactly the road God has been taking me on. I’ve lost my job, I’ve lost money, I almost lost my home, and I’ve lost some pretty important people in my life. God already shared with me the notion of letting go of anger. Having your book was such a gift, though. You have so masterfully put on paper my entire journey and helped me have a sort of reference.

This book highlights God’s peace. Through the midst of it all, I have peace from Him. People around me have been a little confused when I tell them my story from this year and say I’m not angry. If I was doing this alone? You bet I’d be angry. I’d be so wrapped up in myself and how so many different characters in my life have wronged me. But I’m not. And that astounds me.

Just this morning I experienced another loss. The loss of someone who has been close to me from the day I was born. She’s holding onto bitterness and anger. Just today she spewed pages of hate at me and has stormed out. Just a few years ago I would have been enraged! Today? Peace.

For the first time, I understand what it means to count it all joy when facing trials of many kinds. In these trials—God proves to me what He says. He gives peace at the times when it is astonishingly unusual to have peace.

And it is all thanks to being Unoffendable.

The Good: What an amazing book! Brant Hansen takes oft-ignored Scriptures, combines them with a bit of logic and reason, and shows us the true nature of anger. While he adds in dashes of humor, his point is very serious: there is no such thing as righteous anger. Plus, Mr. Hansen mentions that he has the same condition that I do, which is all the more inspiring.

The Bad: Not a thing to complain about!

Conclusion: Whether you're a church veteran or have been a Christian for all of a few days, you need to read this book! It will challenge the popular belief that anger is permissible, even among followers of Jesus! Go to the library and find this book, NOW!

Score: 5/5 (actually, it should be higher!)

Unoffendable was one of the books that I saw when searching for Kindle eBook deals (aff link) and I just had to purchase. It sounded so good that I couldn't pass up the deal! I'm so glad I did get it, since I absolutely loved it. The book gave me a lot to think about and it's definitely true that if you choose to be "unoffendable", life gets so much easier and better. I highly recommend this book!!

As simple as it sounds it's actually quite difficult to do. To be unoffendable, you must adjust your expectations of human nature, learn to love all, and realize that you're just as bad as the person you're offended by.

It can definitely be hard but we don't have a right to hold on to our anger. We were forgiven so we should forgive. This world justifies anger and tells us we need it, spoiler alert, we don't. We have to let go and move on, it can lead to a much happier and loving life.

This book is definitely paradigm-shifting, and I hope it follows to be life-changing, as I was challenged to make some significant changes. Unoffendable revealed things I had never seen in me---and I've always been a deeply self-deprecating, introspective type. I didn't relate so much to the anger portions, but definitely relate to the hesitancy to love people who annoy, irritate, and offend. I felt challenged to love the unlovely and even strangers who are perfectly lovely but for reasons I needn't go into, I get hives being around or even talking to.

A couple of things I was hoping would be addressed but weren't were: 1. Practical tips or tools to help me STOP thinking negatively or judgy (dude, cut me slack, I am being really transparent here) and become truly loving... which I imagine will be a long process requiring a lot of practice. Instead of thinking someone on the road is an idiot (my #1 favorite place to judge humans), I'm trying to follow Hansen's lead and bless them. Bless and do not curse. Gah. To be mindful 24/7 of my temptation to judge all the idiots on the road and other unavoidable places is going to take daily surrender and boatloads of prayer.

The 2nd item I wish had been addressed is how to love those who are particularly difficult or challenging or honestly flat out injurious to love. Some of us (or maybe just me?) have particular issues with those who violate, manipulate, or take advantage. Some of us have difficulty knowing exactly how to set boundaries when there is clear need for that. While I truly, honestly feel the book's challenge to show the love of Jesus to all people, including those who are sort of awful to be around, I am at a huge loss about how to deal with those who might see "I love you with the love of the Lord" as an opportunity to play head games. (I don't know how to play and I don't know how to make it stop. I don't know how to say 'yes, your story would be a shocking travesty of justice if it were not in fact a total lie and sorry, but I don't believe you and no, I don't want to take time proving why, but God loves you and so do I.' ?) I'd love to see a chapter about how to love people in our lives with personality disorders who insist on dragging bystanders into their life-sucking chaos, and worse, hurting everyone within reach. How to love like Jesus while gently but firmly enforcing boundaries. Can that be a follow up book?

But there was plenty to chew on and I believe this book is going to be a life-changer. For me, it was a much needed eye-opener about the attitudes that keep me amply supplied with offense and annoyance (judgment) in ways I hadn't seen. But it also reaffirmed the depth of Christ's unshakable love and my/our inability to earn or lose it, something I can always use reminded of, and critical in laying the foundation for becoming unoffendable.

Don't read this if you don't want to be challenged to grow more like Jesus. Don't read this if you get a thrill out of being offended and want to keep a firm grip on your right to be scandalized by others' behavior, language, appearance, driving, worldview, driving (I know), etc. Don't read it if you believe Anger is one of the fruits of the Spirit.

Don't read it if you don't want to know that Jesus loves those who offend you every bit as much as he loves you.

This book teaches and talks about how to be unoffendable and to surrender anger and be humble. To give God control and to trust that He knows the big picture and is in control in the bad situations that happen to us. That we are not entitled to our anger, God is entitled to anger and revenge but are not.

That we need to love all people and tell them the good news and try not to be offended by what they say to us and be kind to them even though they say offensive things that we need to not get offended and take it all so personal and get angry with them, because really Jesus loves them just as much as He loves us, and we are no better than them.

This is really a very interesting thing, because in our world so many times we justify our anger and say we need it, we don't need it. We need to be unoffendable not get angry with them and love them. And that can lead to a very joyful life.

Wowza does our current cultural climate need a book like this. Brant writes with humor, tells stories and challenges the idea in the Church that we, as Christians, are entitled to “righteous anger”.

Two major themes are stood out to me:
1. Jesus was never offended by anyones moral behavior (so neither should we)
2. We are offended by the idea of grace in a culture that always wants things to be even, balanced, fair, etc. but there is nothing about grace that is fair (praise God!)

There truly is a freedom to being unoffendable! I think I’m going to try it out😂

Totally recommend this book! This book challenged me more than any book I’ve read in a long time! It is changing my way of thinking. I listened to it as an audio book, but I want to get it in hard copy so I can mark it up and refer to specific quotes. I love how the author is quite frank, but hilarious at the same time.

While becoming "Unoffendable" is as simple as the subtitle suggests, it's not easy. But eminently worthwhile--just like reading this book.

3.75 stars. I rounded up. 7/10. Really good thought provoking stuff. I wish he would have expounded on some things and talked less on others.
