Who Do You Think You Are? -Mark Driscoll

Identity is one of the primary struggles for people. Through childhood, we dream up what we want to be when we grow up. In college, we're forced to narrow that list down to something practical. Then through our adult lives, we spend our time, money, and energy pursuing the identity we have chosen for ourselves.

What do companies like Nike, Under Armor, Burberry, L’Oreal, Apple, and Kitchen Aid all have in common? They will all sell you an identity.

In his book “Who Do You Think You Are?” Mark Driscoll examines how Christians have identities that are founded in Christ and what that means for our everyday lives.

What I love the most about Driscoll’s writing is how rich it is with information. It took me more time to read this book than I had anticipated because I wanted to continually stop and reflect on the ideas that Driscoll presented.

Without a doubt, if we are able to firmly focus on our identities in Christ, we can move past the fears, insecurities, and hindrances that prevent us from fulfilling that God has placed on our lives.

Mark Driscoll’s book is timely and relevant for Christians today. A wealth of insight and information, you will continually find yourself reflecting on your own identity and your relationship with Christ.
