Book :: Identity // Buy IT!
My first finished book of the year was by author Eric Geiger and was entitled :: Identity; Who You Are In Christ. This book was as much research for some preaching and writing I’m doing as it was anything but I took a few nuggets away for myself as well.
Honestly, I’m only giving this book a 2 1/2 maybe 3 (***) our of 5 stars. It wasn't really that great but definitely had some solid points to it. If you are wanting to read / study a book with a group of people who maybe need some foundational insight and a reminder that they are not what they do but who they know… this would be a solid book. Very basic but solid.
Eric pretty much uses 1 Peter 2:9-11 “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Dear friends, I urge yo, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.”
He uses these verses to outline his book, walking you through what it means to be a chosen people, a royal priesthood, holy nation, etc. Not extremely creative or orginal or profound but like I said, solid. And if you have a group that just needs some basic foundation stuff to walk through this would be a great book.
So I recommend it… for the right group.
Enjoy and if you going to get it get it here…
