SoulPrint by Mark Batterson

March 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!
