Who Do You Think You Are?

What a great book to start off this new year!  Our identity in Christ is the foundation of who we are, and "our identity determines our activity" (p. 39).  So I better know who I am if I want my activity to truly reflect my identity.

This book is actually a study in Ephesians as each of the 16 chapters starts with a passage from Ephesians and then expounds on the truth in reference to who are as believers in Christ.  I was envisioning a 16 part sermon series as I read this book.  Each chapter starts with the passage, provides a real-life example, and then delves into the Biblical truth.  The author is really straightforward in his delivery, even though the content can be quite deep.

I did like how this book challenged me to work on forgiveness and loving others as Christ loved me.  As with any teaching, I am always driven to seek God's Word myself and listen to Him as He teaches me.  This book is just a tool to be more proactive about studying God's truth.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
