Book Review: Soul Print by Mark Batterson

Soul Print by Mark Batterson is now on my short list of epic, life changing books I have read. In fact, this book may have convinced me that Mark Batterson is my new favorite author. I seldom give that glowing of a review to any book, but this is such a fresh, uplifting and insightful book that I can't help but think that anyone who reads it can walk away unchanged, or at least eager to find out who they really are.

The concept of Soul Print is that just as each of us has a finger print, we each have a soul print, a unique identity given to us by God that results in our destiny and eventually our legacy. Batterson uses the life of King David as a backdrop for this search for our soul print and I have to say, the parallels he draws are not only elegant, but right on. So often in Christian books, authors use scripture to support their points. Instead, Batterson does an excellent job drawing the process tof finding our soul print from the major events of King David's life. I sat with a highlighter the whole time I read this book and I plan on going back through it with a notebook and journaling through a second reading in search of my own soul print.

Few books have gotten me this excited in my entire life. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone in search of who they are and what they were put here to do. Amazing, amazing book!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my honest review.
