Book Review: Soul Print by Mark Batterson
I’ve enjoyed Mark Batterson’s writing style ever since I picked up a copy of “Wild Goose Chase” in a bookstore one day. “Soul Print” chronicles the defining moments of the life of David as an illustration of how to find our divine destiny.
Mark’s premise is that God has designed each of us with a soul print that is unique just like our fingerprints. I enjoyed how he said that no one can worship God like you can because no one else is you. Batterson uses the life of David to show how God is always preparing us for something up ahead. For example, David didn’t just show up to fight Goliath with no preparation beforehand. God had been preparing him to fight Goliath long before the battle through David’s encounters with wild animals as a shepherd. Batterson says the key to finding our divine destiny is to look into our past and see how God has been working in our lives and what he has been preparing us for.
Batterson’s writing is upbeat and you can sense the joy he gets out of life. He is an excellent communicator in the way that he uses personal stories to illustrate what he’s trying to get across. Check out “Soul Print” to make some more sense out of the history of your life.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
