Anthony skillfully weaves Scriptural wisdom, the insights of great saints, the words of Blessed Pope John Paul II himself, and his own explanations together to create a touching, meaningful new look at what prayer is, who we really are in relation to God, and how this all fits in with Blessed Pope John Paul II's weekly radio addresses on the Theology of the Body.
There were a great number of new insights that I gleaned from reading "Who Am I?" One of my favorites occurred in Chapter One, when Anthony described the way that some people sometimes see God: "We look for God like we look for police officers when speeding down the highway. We want to avoid Him at all costs. So when we view God this way, we do not want to turn around nor accept God's invitation to friendship, i.e. convert, because we are afraid to repent." This struck me instantly as the kind of attitude that I often have before going to confession: "Do I really want to do this? Wouldn't it be better if I just turned around and walked the other way?"
While reading this book, just as I did, you will gain invaluable insights into your own strengths and weaknesses in following the One True God. You will laugh, you will be touched, and you will learn more than you ever expected.
A beautiful, illuminating book that will change lives!
