When I got an email from Thomas Nelson asking if I'd like an advance copy of Mark Driscoll's new book, I malfunctioned for a second and then deleted the message. Within a day or two I skulked back to my trash folder and sent them my address, knowing that if I read the book I'd have to write this review. Just know from the outset that words basically fail. Starting with the fact that I was sent a copy of anything by Mark Driscoll to review, I can hardly begin to explain my feelings about this book. But don't worry, I'll try!

Once I got past the denial stage of having a Driscoll book in my home and moved into the acceptance stage of reading it and writing this, I knew my involvement with the Seattle therapeutic community would inform the way I read him. I meet a lot of people who have significant spiritual and emotional wounding, and I've gotten to hear the stories of many people who have been involved at Mark Driscoll's church here in Seattle (Mars Hill). The stories out of there cause me so much concern. What I hear about gender roles and authoritarianism manages to surprise me and make me cry even after six years of hearing them on a fairly regular basis. (For more information and actual accounts of people who have been at Mars Hill Church, search these articles as Amazon reviews won't let me use URLs: "Jesus Needs New PR Mark Drisoll's church discipline contract," "Mark Driscoll's gospel shame: the truth about discipline, excommunication and cult-like control at Mars Hill," and visit Joyful Exiles dot com, and Mars Hill Refuge dot com.) It's not a secret that I feel Driscoll's teachings and his increasing popularity are a powerfully destructive epidemic in western evangelicalism.

I've always held to the premise that the primary focus of life isn't about "who you are," but "whose you are," and when we come to the understanding about the second the first comes into focus!
For that reason when I first received notification that Mark Driscoll's new book was about to be released I decided to read it for myself. I've read, or think I've read every book/article the man has ever written, and though I've had disagreements with him in the past, sometimes extremely intense disagreements I always read anything he writes. He's an astute observer of people, and the culture in which we live, and if for no other reason than that, what he writes is worth the time. He's always been one that makes me "think," and even though I disagree with him on many things, I've always appreciated him for that.

The book, as with many that have come before, and undoubtedly like many that will come after, seeks to help believers discover who they are in Christ. No one would argue that such an undertaking is a daunting task, because most people, even the most committed of Christians, struggle to grasp who they are in Christ. This book is one that the reader would do well to read with an open Bible. The flow and outline of the book are tied to one of the most exciting and engaging of Paul's epistles; Ephesians! Though not directly a "theological" work, this book does offer the reader a good dose of theology intermingled with numerous real life stories of people who have had to overcome intense obstacles to in discovering their identity in Christ. These stories do well at revealing the power of Jesus Christ in radically transforming a person's life, not taking them from "bad to good," but from "dead to alive." In fact the stories far outweigh the theology in their effectiveness.

Who do you think you are?

Sounds like a dishonoring question at first, but you will find out that it's a very real question we must ask ourselves especially as professed Christians.

This book is extraordinarily written with real life stories that start each chapter or are incorporated in that are particularly relatable (similar to the way "Death by Love" was written). There is a nice portion of historical information blended in to help us better able to understand what we read, see, learn, and process and apply as we read through the Bible or simply live in this life as a Christian.....I once heard "a generation that ignores history has no past and no future". Pastor Mark makes that connection in mostly all of his teachings and without making that connection understandings can become imprecise.

This book is written with emotion, true in heart. This book has clarification! Who we are in Christ is everything. What we believe about our identity hinges on our actions.

This book took me a while to get through simply because there is SO much joy, sorrow, victory, intensity, history and LOVE involved. I'm glad I did take my time, I finished the book the Monday, April 15, 2013, the day Boston was bombed. My afternoon that Monday began with picking up where I had left off which started at the chapter of Mike and Alanna's story before the news flashed about the Boston Marathon, it was a double whammy of emotion, but the very end of the book was thrilling and exciting and gave me the eager desire to live and share Christ with even MORE urgency.

I HIGHLY encourage you readers to answer the questions as you go along and to read Ephesians....
