As I read The Truest Thing, I found myself in conversation with God… re-examining my goals, my purpose, and my discontent with a seemingly perfect life. I find myself left with a lingering peace.

It has been a long time since I’ve read a Christian book cover to cover, but I was so entertained and convicted by The Truest Thing that I was hungry for more.

In addition to believers struggling with discontentment, I also think this book is perfect for new believers or those looking to renew their relationship with God. It’s simple, straight forward, entertaining , and convicting (in a good way).

The Truest Thing about You by David Lomas and D. R. Jacobsen encourages Christians to address the deeper question concerning their true identity in Christ. It is a recommended Christian book.

In The Truest Thing about You: Identity, Desire, and Why it All Matters, Lomas and Jacobsen want us to look at "the truer things, the things so deeply true about you that they have the power to change everything else" by discovering what God says is the truest thing about us. It is pointed out that there are many true things about us, both good and bad, but what we need to understand is that they are not the real, true core of our existence, or in other words, the truest thing.

Divided up into 8 chapters to explore the truest thing, the chapters are arranged as follows:

Chapter One- Who We Are: A Collection of Someones
"Have you ever realized that the most fundamental and existential questions in life spring from your identity? Who am I? Why am I here? What am I meant to be? What is my purpose? Can I ever change who I am? Does anyone know and love the real me?"

Chapter Two- How We Got Here: A Paradigm
Most of us are likely to identify ourselves through what we do, have, or desire.

Chapter Three- What We Are Meant To Be: The Imago Dei
Imago Dei is a Latin term that means “image of God.” "God never took away our call to be both bearers of His image and stewards over His creation. Imago Dei is for all people at all times. It’s who we are.

Chapter Four- The Truest Human: Jesus and Identity
Jesus was human here on earth and our identity should be tied to Him.

I haven't read many books recently (or should I say, I haven't finished many books) but this one I finished in about 3-4 days of reading. This reads like a great story, with hooks, quotes, illustrations, Bible interpretations, and personal stories which all tied together quite nicely. This is good news for those who may have a certain perception of christian books and tend to stay away from them generally. Also good news for those who have read plenty, and this is a fresh perspective!

Beyond that, on a deeper level, this book has power. I believe it says many things in a raw way that many Christians may have thought, but would never directly say. It works because it resonates with so many people who are troubled, seeking change, seeking something more. I was brought to tears on several occasions.

Highly recommended for non-believers and Christians who need a shaking to their core, and a fantastic reminder of who we really are, are meant to be, and who Jesus is. And all the false identities we have managed to build up in our lives without even realizing it.

About a third into the book, I started thinking to myself "dang I wish I could have read this a year ago!" "The Truest Thing about You" is broken down into a journey of different seasons that a person might/will experience as the Lord gently molds our identity into His. It sheds light on the power of lies we so easily allow ourselves to believe that keep us from seeing the truest thing about us -- we are loved. There were parts in the book that made me slightly uncomfortable to accept about myself and God, but also giving me an overwhelming sense of freedom that it's God who will uncover the truest thing about me, it's not by my doing.

David is vulnerable, and funny while at the same time being so direct about God's complete restoration and transformation in us. I love how David is able to have this book feel applicable to everyone, and lays out the gospel so beautifully and simply. I highly recommend this book to anyone, Christian, non-Christian, anyone who has tried to find and understand their identity.

As a pastor, all these thoughts should be profoundly commonplace for me, and yet as I read, I couldn't help but feel like I was reading something new and refreshing with every turning page. As I currently struggle with exactly who I am in this life, the timing of this book coming into my library couldn't have been better.
The Truest Thing about You avoids the common Christian Checklist that is so popular in today's contemporary Christian genre (5 keys, 6 Truths, 99 Red Balloons), and instead drives home one simple point that will change your view of self.
A great read.

I read a book a week. I've been a Christian for over 40 years, and during that time have read hundreds of devotional, inspirational, apologetical, theological, and other such Christian books. This is in my 'Top 10' of all Christian book reads - a must. It distills the ESSENCE of the Christian life better than I've ever read elsewhere. After I finished it I took the rare step of starting it all over again to read it a second time! It would be a GREAT book for a small group. The publisher should look at doing a 'Study Guide' to go with it...
