The Gospel Coalition has provided us with a resource that would be ideal for group study. Ten chapters. 137 pages. Memory verses and study notes at the end of each chapter. I will definitely read it again. —Deb Finnamore (David's wife; joint account)
The compilation of 10 chapters by 10 of my favorite writers makes it fun to read. Each chapter offers their unique voice and story on a specific identity theft issue. While their perspectives and personal application are unique to them, their teaching is all solidly unified in the Word of God. As readers, we repeatedly get the gospel, applied to different areas of life. The book reads like a robust conversation at a coffee table—each woman weighing in on a struggle or temptation that we all face and offering a Biblical response.
Identity Theft would be excellent to read with a group of women—just a couple or even a large group. I would recommend encouraging each gal to read one chapter a week and then take time throughout the week to memorize the provided memory verse and answer the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. It would lend itself well to a solid 10-week group study. Participants would be sweetly renewed in the truth of who they are in Christ by the end of the semester.
I highly recommend this book! I have very little time to read books right now, but I had been looking forward to picking up this book and am so glad I made time to read it. I love the format of it. Each of the ten chapters is written by a different author with their own unique stories and perspective, but the chapters remain uniform with the sections of Identity Theft, Identity Truth, and Identity Transformed in each. I really enjoyed the variety of women contributing to this book and it felt like having ten great spiritually rich conversations.
The chapters were a nice length that made it easy to pick up and read a chapter in between the busyness of daily life. There is a memory verse and discussion questions at the end of each chapter. I think this would be great to read with a group of women or to read and journal the answers on your own. Each chapter focuses on an area of a woman's identity and just like you shouldn't just read a book on decluttering your home straight through before acting on it, I think this is a book that calls you to read a chapter and then dwell on that area and what God wants for you in that part of your identity before moving on to the next chapter. So, though it can be read quickly, I would recommend taking time to savor the truths that are shared, dig into the additional scripture within the discussion questions, and commit the verse from each chapter to memory.
I see this as a great book to give to new and old believers to encourage, challenge, and clarify their identity in Christ and how to fully live that out in today's world. It was all of those things for me!
This book was very engaging and easy to read. The gospel is explained clearly throughout every chapter making it a great study for those investigating Christ or those who've been walking with the Lord for many years. There's something here for everyone to benefit from. To get the most from this book I highly recommend going through the questions at the end of every chapter. The questions are intentional and help to put into practice the things explained. I also love that this book has so much depth to it and is still feminine in nature. Its written by women addressing many issue women face but its not exclusively for women. It keeps pointing us to Christ and not just giving us "good advice" that has no weight. Would recommend to anyone wanting to grow more in their identity in Christ and those who are curious about the Christ centered life.
