Book review: Who Do You Think You Are? by Mark Driscoll

by Sam Isaacson  
1/14/2013 / Book Reviews

This book is essentially a sermon series in book form, walking through the book of Ephesians from start to finish. The subtitle is 'Finding Your True Identity in Christ,' which captures the theme that runs through the book, but there's a lot more in it than simply a redefinition of identity.

I've read most of Mark Driscoll's stuff, and my thoughts in the past have always been that his writing style seems so close to his preaching style that it doesn't really lend itself to doctrine-focussed books (which is what most of his previous ones have been) - I read this expecting to like the content, but not be too enamored by the presentation. It turns out he's struck a winning formula in this one.

Although perhaps not as funny as some of his other books, this is a solid, Driscoll-style presentation of Ephesians, taking a few verses and breaking them down in each chapter into a number of easy-to-digest points, with challenging and practical ways to apply the lessons learnt throughout. He's a massive fan of footnotes and endnotes, which means that it's easy to find out what Bible passage to look up to follow an idea through, or which book to buy next if you want to explore an idea.

In short, I don't think I'm going too far to say this is Driscoll's best book out there. It's easy to read, thoroughly biblical, and contains an important message that people need to hear. With some insignificant reservations I'd recommend it to anyone, but particularly new Christians, and Christians who don't think they need to read it. That might be you!

I got this book for free from in exchange for an honest review.
