Introverts in the church - pt. 1

I finally started reading Adam McHugh's book Introverts in the Church: Finding Your Place In An Extroverted Culture. The little blurb on the back says:
Introverts are called and gifted by God. But many churches tend to be extroverted places where introverts are marginalized. Some Christians end up feeling like it's not as faithful to be an introvert...

Adam McHugh shows how introverts can live and minister in ways consistent with their personalities. He explains how introverts and extroverts process information and approach relationships differently and how introverts can practice Christian spirituality in ways that fit who they are...

Introverts in the Church is essential reading for any introvert who has ever felt out of place, as well as for church leaders who want to make their churches more welcoming to introverts.

Yeah... this is my kind of book. I totally relate. My only complaint so far is the print is really small, but... such is life. I will give it a read. It looks god.
