Soul Print - A review

I'm a big fan of Mark Batterson's books. I am an even bigger fan now after reading Soul Print. It is such a good book. I feel as if he crafted each sentence with an incredible amount of insight and wisdom. It gets the award for my most highlighted book. There are just so many great statements.

Most books start off good, but then fade as you get half-way through. Not so with Soul Print. It gets better and better. In fact, the last two chapters may be the best of the entire book. I was disappointed that I had finished it.

What makes this a must read for you is that it speaks clearly into our culture. What I mean by that is that there are issues, struggles, idols, and problems that are unique to Christians in America in 2011. Soul Print addresses those. I would share what some of them are, but really don't want to spoil the reading for you because you NEED to read this. Besides, Mark is such a good writer that I don't want to mess up something that he says so well.

One more thing that I have to mention is that Mark comes across as extremely humble. It's such a refreshing trait that makes me respect him and his writing all the more. But don't take my word for it. Read the book for yourself.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
