Ortberg is a gifted storyteller and expositor. He takes us through the story of the paralyzed man being lowered through the roof by his four friends at the feet of Jesus. He veers a bit into allegory when he talks about the different mats that we hold onto, mats of discouragement and despair and frustration.
He talks about the Canaanite woman who begged Jesus to heal her daughter. He reveals that the Canaanite woman had greater faith and compassion than his own disciples at that point.
He talks about Nathan's bravery in confronting King David. He talks about the "abnormal" sinful woman who anointed Jesus with perfume and Jesus said that she experienced grace and forgiveness that Simon the host knew nothing about because she loved Christ much.
There is a concluding chapter dealing with passages from the book of Revelation which shows what it will be like when someday we will be made whole and "normal" in the kingdom.
