Many of us establish our identity based on what others say about us or what the current culture convinces us is true. But the most reliable source for establishing identity is God. He knows us intimately, better than we know ourselves. He has the authority to define us like no one else does.
We Christians need to create the foundation of our identity from what the Bible says is true of us. To help us do that, the Kendricks take readers through the major concepts in Ephesians. We find there the reality of who we are in Christ. The authors identify the truth about us and help us integrate that truth into our lives. They also teach us how to stand firm during tough times, knowing who we are at the core.
This is a good book for teens and Christians not too familiar with the Bible. The writing style is easy to understand and not academic in nature at all. The authors include good story illustrations of the lessons they give. It would be a good book for a teen study. Discussion questions are provided at the end of the book.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
