True Identity is perfect for parents and youth workers to give to the teenagers (14-16) in their lives to help them in their journey. Drawing on experiences and wisdom from a wide array of experts, the book provides compassionate answers to help teens discover who they really are, emphasizing their identity in Christ above all other ways our culture defines them. As the book walks teens through the steps to make their faith their own, it highlights healthy independence and God-honoring relationships.
Here is what I thought.......
I really enjoyed this book. It was definitely an interesting take on being a teenager and where our identity comes from. I enjoyed how each chapter was on a different topic and how they built upon each other. I am very excited to let my preteen daughter read this. I think as she gets older this will definitely help in times of uncertainty for her. I think this would be a great resource for a youth pastor or youth worker. It could also benefit teachers and parents. I received this book from Bethany House for free. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.
