Book Review – Mark Batterson’s Soul Print

Ever since reading Mark Batterson’s Wild Goose Chase, I had anticipated reading more of his insightful and revealing and inspiring work.

Soul Print was not a disappointment. He writes with a purpose and a flair for turning the reader to an introspective consideration of spiritual truths. Soul Print concerns itself with the idea of our being made in the image of God and with a unique blend of gifts, traits and potentials that reveal to us God’s special purpose for our lives. Near the end of the book, he summarizes his thesis in this statement:

The soulprint is the truest reflection of God’s image. Locked within its vaults are your true identity and your true destiny. And part of what makes it mysterious is that it’s so multidimensional. It contains past, present, and future. It’s who I was, who I am, and who I am becoming. p. 146

The reader will find within Batterson’s book, insights into the personal struggles and precise moments when the author reveals having seen God’s purpose in his life. The book concludes with a section devoted to small group exploration of the ideas found within.

Small groups, book clubs, and conversations over coffee, will benefit from the springboards of thought provided by Batterson.

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