"Who do you think you are?"
This is the crucial question that Pastor Mark Driscoll, New York Times best-selling author and founder of Mars Hill Church, hopes to help readers resolve with the publication of his new book, Who Do You Think You Are?: Finding Your True Identity in Christ, set for release on Jan. 8.
Two decades of ministry work have taught Driscoll that the issue of identity underlies nearly every struggle. "I believe we have an opportunity with this book," he says, "to fill a massive and very practical biblical need for a wide range of Christians, across virtually every denomination, tribe, and theological nuance. And that is the need to understand who we truly are and where our identity lies.
"The fundamental problem we have in this world is that we don't understand who we truly are--children of God made in His image--and define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus. Only by knowing our false identity apart from Christ, in comparison to our true identity in him, can we finally deal with and overcome the issues in our lives."
Driscoll's first release since hitting No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list with Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship and Life Together in early 2012, Who Do You Think You Are? was written to serve seasoned believers and those new to the faith alike as an exploration of the identity question and an practical examination of what it means to be "in Christ," as the Bible says.
