Mark Batterson has become a staple diet of reading for my beginning of the year. I was glad to receive Soulprint as a review copy and immediately devoured it. Batterson uses the life of David to spotlight our own lives in Christ.

While the book doesn't point anything new out about the life of David, Batterson's easy to read prose is encouraging, convicting, and inspiring.

I connect with his personal stories, and took time to reflect on his questions.

The biggest point I took from the book is discovering who God created me to be. How am I unique and how do I understand my life in view of my eternal significance. How comfortable am I with me?

Soulprint helped me discover the answers to some of these questions during my reading. Other questions were launched from the book but will take time to flesh answers from.

It's not a self help book, its a self discovery book using scripture. It's a book that points us to the truth of God and then using it to illuminate the truth about our life.

I didn't realize how shallow I was until the book asked the hard questions. Batterson talks about prophets in our lives that speak difficult truths into our lives, and Batterson was a prophet for me through this reading.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review".
