I really appreciated the structure of this book, being based on scripture it moves from a sentimental 'God loves us' book and moves to a book of foundational truths that can free you and I in areas of our lives where we may have been bound in the past
This book was really interesting, I enjoyed the mix between stories and doctrine. It's a book that you could use as a bed time read, but it also includes some really good sections that helped me to describe my doctrine more clearly (The section on spiritual gifts). In that sense, If I were to sum it up, I'd say it balances inspiration and theology really well.
I didn't agree with everything that Pastor Mark wrote, but I did agree with most of it. I felt it was conveyed really effectively. It has kept my attention and has re-iterated some of the things that I am free to do and be through Jesus
One particular area that has blessed me is the reminder that I am a child of God, a co-heir with Christ. That is my identity and I should be secure and safe in that identity regardless of what other people say, do or think
I recommend this book, it's definitely worth a read
I highly recommend this book for any Christian struggling to find joy or who is battling with where they find their identity.
Mark Driscoll also has a sermon series that matches with the book on the mars hill website.
Who Do You Think You Are? focuses on the area of self-identity, something that is one of the biggest struggles in the UK. The book attempts to answer how a Christian’s identity comes from a different perspective, and how that can influence the way we live. To do this Driscoll uses the book of Ephesians.
The book is straightforward if a little boring – it certainly didn’t capture me and leave me wanting to read more.
I know Mark Driscoll is a controversial figure and can engender great loyalty or...quite the opposite. I decided to put that to one side and read the book on its own merits.
Driscoll goes through the book of Ephesians, using it to look at various aspects of a Christian's identity (he takes it as a given that Paul is the author although there is a debate on that issue). There's a lot of what he says I agree with, as well as other parts where I wriggled about a bit. But I found it hard to engage with the content as I found the writing so heavy.
I'm not sure why, if I'm honest! It was hard to read - it didn't keep my attention. The content was very Reformed/Conservative, as I would expect from the author, and this resulted in a lot of `Christianese'. I think this was part of the problem for me - there was little `freshness' in what he was saying. There was no `find a new way of saying something old', at least not in my view. And there was little I hadn't already heard before.
I liked the fact the author wasn't on the cover. I think this should only happen with biographies - otherwise you feel the book is more about the author and not the cove! Driscoll doesn't make the book about himself, or climb up on any personal hobby horse, which is good.
It felt quite...simplistic and black and white in places, although there were nuances I didn't expect. He does refer to commentaries and other writers, which I appreciated, as it's good to know a writer has been reading, and not just drawing from his own thinking. However, I felt it was more like an extended sermon than a book.
It's OK. It's not a book to inspire controversy.Read more ›
