Posts Tagged ‘identity’


I am generally leery of self-help books and Christian books in particular, because I don’t want someone else’s opinion or interpretation to affect my view of Scripture.  That being said, this book falls into neither category. 

You are unique.  You worship God uniquely.  God has a unique plan for your life; “a unique destiny to fulfill, and no one can take your place.”

“Exactly what, you may be wondering, is a soulprint?  Think of it this way: Your fingerprint uniquely identifies you and differentiates you from everyone else who has ever lived, but your fingerprint is only skin deep. You possess a uniqueness that is soul deep.  I call it your soulprint.  It’s not just who you are, present tense. It’s who you are destined to become, future tense.  It’s not just who others see when they look at you from the outside in. It’s who God has destined you to become from the inside out. Not unlike your genetic code that programs your physical anatomy, your soulprint hardwires your true identity and true destiny. So while you live your life forward, God works backward.  The Omniscient One always starts with the end in mind.”

Using the life of David as a template, this book helps you identify defining moments and experiences in life that can help you determine your God-given destiny. This book is full of comments that are worth remembering, and thinking on. It delves into identity; integrity, embarrassing moments (and why we need them) moral honesty, and our desperate need for God.

“Your uniqueness reveals God’s greatness.” “The soulprint is the truest reflection of God’s image. Locked within its vaults are your true identity and true destiny.” These are just a few quotes that stick with me.

Written in plain language, this book is a contemplative read. The discussion questions at the end are geared simply to helping a person discover his or her true identity.  Be prepared for tough questions which garner tougher answers.

If you like introspective reading, this book is for you.  If you seek to learn more about yourself and more about God, this book is for you.  If you are a lost traveller on the road of life, this book may well be able to help you find your compass.  Five stars out of five.  I highly recommend this book. 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
