SoulPrint by Mark BattersonMarch 24, 2011
I am a huge fan of Mark Batterson. To date, I have read all of his books and have used a number of them in small group studies. Batterson’s writing style is incredibly conversational and he has a great way of bringing in various aspects of life into the lesson he is trying to convey to the reader. SoulPrint is no exception.
I can usually tell whether I will like a book by the ability or inability to put it down. Once I began reading SoulPrint, I found myself totally engulfed and unable to put it down easily. In it, Batterson’s basic point is: You are unique, and this is a gift from God.
To illustrate this point, he uses several snapshots from the life of King David. In addition to David, Batterson uses a number of “hindge-point” followers in the Bible to discuss their unique gift from God and how it was used to fulfill the Gospel. If you are looking for a deep, expositional look at these characters, this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a great read, one that will speak to you on some level and challenge you to go deeper, I would definitely recommend picking up a copy!
