Soul Print: Discovering Your Divine Destiny by Mark Batterson Book Review

Mark Batterson investigates the life of David and teaches readers how to be the unique person God created them to be. No one is going to be just like you, and everyone is unique to God. He encourages readers to have a holy confidence in what God can do and not to have a confidence in your own self. Mark conveys that God must be the one where you get your identify from. Mark describes his own personal life symbols in his office to remind him of his past. He believes that you need to look at your past to remember where you have been. The past will help reveal who you are today. David’s story is shown throughout the different chapters of the book to be an example of how God can take your own personal story and use it for his Kingdom.

Soul Print also has a discussion guide to help you absorb the knowledge of becoming the person God created you to be. Mark will guide you in the process by prompting you to answer the questions after each chapter.

I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t like themselves. God has made you to be yourself. And we are all created in his image. I love how Mark utilized the story of David and portrayed it. Mark showed how David had to go through some disappointments but God still loved him. Even when you make a mistake God will never give up on us. I enjoyed that Mark demonstrated the whole story of David in Soul Print. He showed the good times and the bad times of the life of David. Soul Print will inspire you to become the whole person God made you to be and not to compare yourself to others. If you struggle with self image problems, this book will lead you to see that even though we are fallible human beings God still loves us. The past doesn’t have to define us if you are in Christ you are forgiven.
