Brandon O'Brien has felt the division of America in recent years more acutely than most. He grew up in rural Arkansas, spent ten years in the Chicago suburbs, and now lives with his family in Manhattan. Along the way, he observed that each community had its own way of doing Christianity, and usually did not understand how others could think differently. Full of endearing and amusing tales from life in these diverse contexts, Not From Around Here is a story-driven look at how the place we live shapes our lives, beliefs, and faith. As you read, you will learn to see things from the other side, rediscover the world you were raised in, laugh, cry, and realize just how much we humans truly have in common.
