Who Do You Think You Are? February 26, 2013
This book challenges you to the core, your identity. Where do you go when you are in need. Who do you identify yourself as. I am Jane, and I am ______. This book challenges you to realize that you are not define by what you have done but who you are in Christ. We all make mistakes but God has already forgiven us, so why do we still define ourselves as sinner when we have been forgiven? God is working in us always. Nothing we have done or will do can change the way he loves us. So much of what we are judged by and follow these days are the things of this world, when we turn to Jesus and the Word we truly find who we are and who God has created us to be. The book goes through many different words that describe us as Christians and challenges us to dig deeper and find out who we really are. Although this book is really challenging to me there was too much repetition the author goes over pieces over and over again. The author dwells on certain points for too long and I didn’t feel that they needed so much time. Overall the book was good but not excellent.

Review by Sarajane
Great book addressing a very important topic. January 6, 2013
Mark Driscoll tackles the root issue of our identity in his new book Who Do You Think You Are, which is part of the Resurgence Literature Collection. Driscoll incorporates his years of pastoral counseling, and noticing that the reoccurring problems of all arrays were grounded in identity crisis. Using the book of Ephesians, Driscoll works to align our views of identity with our true identities present in Christ.
I find Driscoll has come just in time with his book. Speaking as a young adult, our generation needs to be reminded of our identity in Christ and not seek it elsewhere. Driscoll's ability to write with a common, and welcoming tone invites adults, and those younger, to engage in a journey to find our identity in Christ.
However, Driscoll write from his perspective, sometimes losing sight of his audience. His example often include children, but he does not consider placing example for those without children or those who are still young. Aside from this, Driscoll does a wickedly amazing job addressing a topic that is imperative for every Christian to hear.
Review by Daniel
WHO ARE YOU?
WHAT DEFINES YOU?
WHAT IS YOUR IDENTITY?
How you answer those questions affects every aspect of your life: personal, public, and spiritual. So it’s vital to get the answer right.
Pastor and best-selling author Mark Driscoll believes false identity is at the heart of many struggles—and that you can overcome them by having your true identity in Christ. In Who Do You Think You Are?, Driscoll explores the question, “What does it mean to be ‘in Christ’?” In the process he dissects the false-identity epidemic and, more important, provides the only solution—Jesus.
“This book will give you an unshakeable, biblical understanding of who you are in Christ. When you know who you are, you’ll know what to do.”
—Craig Groeschel, Senior Pastor of LifeChurch.tv and author of Soul Detox, Clean Living in a Contaminated World
“I spent years in ministry for Christ without understanding my identity in Christ. I know now that I was not alone. When, by the grace of God, we understand who we are in Christ, everything else can crumble and we will still be standing. I highly commend this book to you.”—Sheila Walsh, speaker and author of God Loves Broken People
