Praise for Mark Batterson

“With Soulprint Mark Batterson has done it again! He has asked the questions that led me into a self-discovery that enlarged my vision of God's purpose in my life.”
—Ruth Graham, speaker and author of Fear Not Tomorrow, God is Already There

“Mark weaves us through the Great Commandment with insights that are both winsome and wise, peaking both curiosity and conviction. He calls us to a discipleship free of the trappings of shriveled self-concern, drawing us to give ourselves, with abandon, to others as we heed Jesus’ call to “love God” above all.  This book will fuel clarity of call and persevering strength for those who will journey in obedience to the Gospel – in its wholeness of justice, mercy, and faithfulness – for a lifetime.” 
—Gary Haugen, president & CEO of International Justice Mission and author of Good News About Injustice, Terrify No More, and Just Courage

“Too many of us are doing life at an unsustainable pace and losing sight of our first love. In his new book Primal, Mark Batterson invites you to rediscover the reality of Christ and His passions. This book will challenge you, push you, and stretch you. You will walk away righteously aggravated, but catapulted into action.”
—Craig Groeschel, Senior Pastor of LifeChurch.tv

“Mark, I’m with you. It’s time for the believers to be more. Let’s hear the voice of God and be that Holy passionate fire that we are called to be. It’s the primal way.”
—Shaun Alexander, 2005 NFL MVP, acclaimed speaker and author of Touchdown Alexander and The Walk

“As a leader and teacher, Mark Batterson brings imagination, energy, and insight. Mark’s genuine warmth and sincerity spill over into his communication, combining an intense love for his community with a passionate desire to see them living the life God dreams for them. I appreciate his willingness to take bold risks and go to extraordinary lengths to reach our culture with a message that is truly relevant.”
—Ed Young, senior pastor of Fellowship Church

“A thoughtful and energetic leader, Mark Batterson presses us to consider how we live out our faith in the world around us. When Mark has something to say, I am quick to listen.”
—Frank Wright, PhD, president and CEO of National Religious Broadcasters

Soulprint is the newest book to be released by Pastor and Author Mark Batterson. Once again he has crafted another excellent book. Batterson is a refreshing voice which continues to resonate with believers. His books have helped push believers to be more than who they are. Personally I have benefited greatly from his work. He writes in a clear easy to read manner that keeps you engaged.

In Soulprint we find Batterson using King David as our point of connection. He uses key events throughout David's life to connect to you and me, the readers, to the truth within the pages.

Batterson relates the idea of the soulprint to a fingerprint. He explains how just as there are no two fingerprints alike there are no two soulprints alike. God has created each one of us as UNIQUE individuals. The author establishes David as the example for our individual uniqueness. Sharing about David facing Goliath and how King Saul put his own armor on David; yet David couldn't wear it he had to be true to himself. Just as we need to be ourselves...no one else.

David may have been a shepherd boy... but God saw more.

David may have been a soldier on the run from his king... but God saw more.

David may have been a king you killed a man to have his wife... but God saw more.

God saw David's soulprint. David pursued God through the high-times and the low. However, he always hung onto God.
Batterson wants the readers to walk away knowing that it's never too late to be who you might have been.

It's never too late to discover your divine destiny.

Bottom line: Excellent Book, well worth the price.

A complimentary copy of Soulprint by Mark Batterson was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

In Soul Print, Mark explores the life of David - King David - of Old Testament fame and looks at how David discovered who he was created to be and how we can do the same. Mark opens the book saying, "there has never been and never will be anyone else like you. But that isn't a testament to you. It's a testament to God who created you... You owe it to yourself to be yourself. But more important, you owe it to the One who designed you and destined you." He goes on to say that we worship God when we live our life in the way God created us to live it!

Here are a couple key quotes from the book... "what we think of as the goal isn't really the goal. The goal is not accomplishing the dream God has given you. The dream is a secondary issue. The primary issue is who you become in the process. We fixate on what and when and where. God's primary concern is always who. And He won't get you where he wants you to go until you become who he wants you to be." "Ultimately, all identity problems are really worship problems. Identity issues are the result of worshipping the wrong thing."

Mark uses personal stories as well as examples from the life of David to help us understand how we can discover who God created us to be.

I was given this book to preview, in exchange for writing a review. But even without being given the book, it is one I would have bought and would recommend that others buy. By far Mark's best book to date!

I received Soul Print by Mark Batterson from Blogging for Books/WaterBrookMultnomah Press.

I reviewed Mark Batterson's previous book last year. Primal was one of my top books of 2010. I actually did many posts and deeper study about Primal at [..]

Soul Print is a book that I know will rank at the top of my 2011 books.

This book is simple, profound, deep, written well, convicting and a must read for all Christians who want to grow in their personal relationship with God.

From the outside, the book looks to have a "self-help" feel but in Mark Batterson's words, "Make no mistake, this is no self-help book. Self-help is nothing more than idolatry dressed up in a rented tuxedo. So let me be blunt: you aren't good enough or gifted enough to get where God wants you to go. Not without His help. But here's the good news: there is nothing God cannot do in you and through you if you simply yeild your life to Him. All of it. All of you."

I learned so much and felt encouraged as Mark Batterson shares his personal story through the pages of his book.

The book also has a study guide in the back of the book which is very helpful. Be sure to have a journal and a pen handy when you finish each chapter!

Mark Batterson writes a wonderful book that will help you discover your divine destiny and give you the tools to put God at the center instead of self.

I highly recommend this book for personal growth or group study!

"There has never been and never will be anyone else like you," writes Pastor Mark Batterson in the opening of his new book, Soulprint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny. "But that isn't a testament to you. it's a testament to the God who created you."

In Soulprint, Batterson wants to help readers better understand who God has uniquely made them to be. He does this by examining a few key moments in the life of David, Israel's greatest human king. And for the most part, he says a lot of helpful things to aid this goal. For example, he writes, "The only way to discover who you are is to discover who God is because you're made in His image." (p. 10) This is exactly correct and something that isn't focused on enough in teaching on identity.

He also reminds readers to not underestimate the strangest of skills or situations that cause you to develop compensatory ones (see p. 25-26). What might seem like a bizarre skill might be an effective tool for worshipping God in a specific situation. This is a very good reminder there is no aspect of who we are or what we can do that is not intended for God's glory.

Thirdly, he reminds readers that if they really want to serve people and care about them, we'll need to stop caring so much about what they think (p. 58). This is the key to serving with integrity.

Fourthly, he writes that "just because something looks like or feels like a God thing doesn't necessarily mean it's a God thing... An opportunity isn't an opportunity if you have to compromise your integrity" (p. 60). If there's one thing to take away from the entire book, it would be this statement. Too often we view things through an open door theology; we assume that just because an opportunity presents itself, it must be from God.
