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
