Product Description

Product Description

You are NOT who you think you are. In fact, according to bestselling author Craig Groeschel in Altar Ego, you need to take your idea of your own identity, lay it down on the altar, and sacrifice it. Give it to God. Offer it up.

Why? Because you are who GOD says you are. And until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be.

When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are as his sons and daughters. Instead of an outward-driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an “altar” ego, God’s vision of who we are becoming.

Discover how to trade in your broken ego and unleash your altar ego to become a living sacrifice. Once we know our true identity and are growing in our Christ-like character, then we can behave accordingly, with bold behavior, bold prayers, bold words, and bold obedience.

Altar Ego reveals who God says you are, and then calls you to live up to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Altar Ego - A great read! 9 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Altar Ego by Craig Groeschel is one of those books that you can read repeatedly. I found his style to be very familiar, as if you were talking to a close friend, he is open and honest in telling you his story, not only revealing his vulnerabilities, but within this you gain insight into his strengths. This is one of those books that you consistently find nuggets of new revelation as you read, we share some of his embarrassing moments and most of all we share his triumphs that made him who he is today.

At the start of the book Craig reminds us that we are not yet who we are called to be, and can all at times find value in the wrong places, putting on labels that do not capture who we truly are but those that are thrown at us by others. In his own life he allowed himself to go through a series of events to discover what God had placed within the core of who he truly was.

The book is split up into three main parts - these are `Sacrificing your false self for your sacred identity', `Sacrificing cultural relativity for Eternal values' and `Sacrificing self justification for passionate obedience' these are then further broken down into chapters encouraging you to step outside of the labels and live with integrity and truth. In each chapter Craig invites us to dive deeper into our true calling.

Who has God called you to be?

It is a question at some point in your life you will find yourself asking and to have a clear understanding you have to lay down every negative behavior, comment and mindset and make a commitment to change, essentially you have to be consistent with the time you spend with God.

It was my first time reading one of his books and he has authored many others which I am assuming are equally thought provoking and gem filled.

4.0 out of 5 stars growth... 20 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
So far I have found this book to be incredibly useful. I feel like it's helping me to not only grow closer to the Almighty, but also to grow into the person God created me to be. Even if you're not a Christian, there are some great life lessons in this book to learn about. Just Read It.

3.0 out of 5 stars Engaging albeit not particularly new material 14 April 2013
Though the world tells us to seek fame, accomplishments and success...though those around us label us as father, mother, husband, wife...though we ourselves count our identity as empty, depressed, or angry...these labels are not all there is to say. You are not, in fact, who you think you are. So says Groeschel in this, his latest book. You are not who you think you are; rather you are who God says you are and, until you can lay your own understanding of who you are on the altar, you won't become that person.

This book was quite well-written and relatively engaging. For me, the most memorable part of the book was about boldness in prayer: whilst I didn't find that the book said anything new, I did find that it teaches truth in a simple, clear and arresting way and therefore I would be tempted to recommend it to newer Christians.

I received a free copy of this book from Booksneeze in return for a fair review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Altar Ego by Craig Groeschel 11 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Yes, it's another book about becoming who God says you are in Christ. This one's split into three parts, basically covering who we are in Christ, what characteristics that means we should have, and how to be bold in obeying God.

Craig Groeschel is biblical, challenging, humble and absolutely hilarious. Each chapter is well-structured, based on clear Bible passages and ideas, and well-communicated through Groeschel's own experience and powerful challenges throughout. I'd challenge any Christian to read this book and come out the other side thinking they can continue living as they have before. The best thing about this book is Groeschel's trademark all-or-nothing approach; God demands our all, so give him your all!

I normally try to come up with one or two things I didn't like about a book but I simply can't with this; at times it made me laugh out loud at his stories while at others it was as if my heart had been ripped out of my chest. I haven't read a book as good as this in a long time, and am looking forward to Groeschel's next creation.

If you're a Christian, read this book. And if you're not, become a Christian, then read this book.

I got this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.
