Who do you think you are

Mark Driscoll is known as a controversial author and preacher, but I hadn’t ever read anything by him and so wanted to read him for myself.  He is the founding pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, among the fastest growing churches in the country, the creator of Resurgence (a Christian leadership website), and cofounder of the Acts 29 Network.

Who Do You Think You Are? focuses on the area of self-identity, something that is one of the biggest struggles in the UK.  The book attempts to answer how a Christian’s identity comes from a different perspective, and how that can influence the way we live.  To do this Driscoll uses the book of Ephesians.

The book is straightforward if a little boring – it certainly didn’t capture me and leave me wanting to read more.

  1. Chris, great review. Thanks for such a thoughtful critique. Yours is one of the few more negative reviews I’ve seen. Have you read other posts on the blog tour? What are your thoughts?

    Have you read other books that have been more helpful to you, given your larger church gathering?


  2. Thanks Andrew for the comment, I’ve briefly read some of the other blog reviews, and I can see how the concept is incredibly important and how it is revolutuionising some peoples thinking. I think I wanted some more practical steps for our setting, but haven’t found anything else where that does that either.
