I wanted to share with you guys about a new book that's about to hit your favorite bookstore's shelves or website. It's called Soulprint by Mark Batterson. Mark is the pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C. Mark has already had best sellers like In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day & his most recent release, Primal. Mark is a leader & thinker that I believe more people should be paying attention to.

In Soulprint, Mark uses the life of David to illustrate how the defining moments of our lives shed light on our destiny. Mark's unique style breathes fresh insight into stories that many believers will have heard over and over in sermons & Bible studies. One of the most important insights that Mark brings out is that often our greatest advantages are hidden in what we perceive as our greatest disadvantages. It's in these areas that we learn the skills necessary & develop the character necessary to fulfill what God has for us, & in the process, God gains even more glory. After all, of all the people God could have used to kill a giant, He chose a shepherd, not a soldier.

Soulprint is a great read, & a quick read which is always a plus. Soulprint doesn't quite live up to some of Mark's other works, but then again, each book should be judged on its own & not necessarily to any other work. I would recommend Soulprint to anyone, & while you're ordering it, go ahead & add on one of Mark's other books because you'll want more after you've finished Soulprint.

In compliance with regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I must inform the reader that Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of Soulprint for review purposes.
