Book Review: Who Do You Think You Are?

April 9, 2013 — Leave a comment

I was excited to read this book. I have always enjoyed Mark Driscoll’s teaching and the posts (both written and video) that he does as a part of the The Resurgence website.

Identity is a critical topic today. Answering the question, “Who am I,” is essential in defining your personhood. Identity affects every area of our lives, whether we realize it or not. In his book, Driscoll addresses how we find our true identity (who Jesus made us to be). Subjects like “I am New,” “I am Gifted,” and “I am in Christ” are a few of the well-outlined, well-thought out, and well discussed topics. As you read the book, you will get an good understanding of the concept without feeling like Pastor Mark was trying for a page count.

Pastor Mark’s chapter on spiritual gifts was great. I thought he did a great job on helping the reader discover what their spiritual gifting is. Another thing I liked about the book was the way it read almost as a sermon rather than a book (I wonder if indeed this began as a sermon series at Mars Hill that was turned into a book).

All in all, I think that you will find the book helpful and I would recommend it.
