The Truth About Us

“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
