Book Review: Soulprint

Soulprint by Mark Batterson is, in a nutshell, about discovering one’s God-given identity and purpose using the story of King David.

While the information in the book wasn’t anything spectacularly revelatory, I felt the story of David was told in an interesting and insightful way.  David, though being the youngest and smallest, was still portrayed as a brave warrior and confident soldier and the author’s supporting narrative, anecdotes, and stories tended  toward the masculine identity as well.  Being a woman, I found this book to be geared toward a male audience, but not so much so that I couldn’t relate or found it hard to swallow.
Because the cover of the book adds the description: “Discovering Your Divine Destiny”, I thought this would, for some reason, be a how-to, step-by-step book of discovering your divine destiny, but it wasn’t.  Instead, the discovery process comes at the end of the book in the form of Discussion Questions which I personally found to be very well constructed and require personal reflection and introspection, using David as the springboard for digging deeper.

At the conclusion of the book I was left with a feeling of security in God’s divine plan and His guidance in all things, a sense of holy calm and heavenly confidence.  Maybe that’s a bit of what David felt when viewing his life under the almighty gaze of God.
