NicholasV5 Stars Out Of 5WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE: A Christian Understanding of Identity by Klyne R. SnodgrassSeptember 29, 2017NicholasVQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5WHO GOD SAYS WE ARE by Klyne Snodgrass covers a topic that sounds overwhelming and intimidating, but is rather an important core issue for every human identity. By identity, Snodgrass means what makes me me; and since we all have a divine Creator Who made us the people we are for some distinct purposes, there can be no more important question for anyone to answer, but especially Christians. Why did God make me like this, and does my life reflect who I really am? But rather than a stuffy anthropological or philosophical treatise, Snodgrass does a wonderful job of demonstrating and explaining this issue in compelling and inviting ways.
After establishing the fact that only Christians have the ability to truly understand themselves as opposed to all non-Christians because we know our Maker; then the meat of the book discourses on nine factors the author says comprise the total makeup of our true identities. Quickly, those factors are: Our body; our history; our relations (and relationships); our self-interpreting of our memories; our chosen commitments; our actions; our boundaries; our ongoing change in temperament and styles of living; and the future we see for ourselves. The theme and goal of this timely book when identity is in so much confusion in the world, is that we can only truly understand ourselves by understanding the God Who not only created us, but loves us. Highly recommended.
