Item description for Identity: Who You Are in Christ by Eric Geiger...
Overview Identity by young pastor Eric Geiger (coauthor of the multi-awarded national bestseller Simple Church) helps Christians clearly understand who they really are as defined by various Scriptures and unpacks the practical response that goes along with each wonderfully dramatic, empowering, and liberating truth.
In Nazi concentration camps, the will of Jewish prisoners was broken by stripping away their personal identification and giving them just a number rather than a name. Satan operates the same way, always trying to undo the faith of believers by twisting the reality of who they are as followers of Christ.
"Identity" by young pastor Eric Geiger (coauthor of the multi-awarded national bestseller "Simple Church") helps Christians clearly understand who they really are as defined by various Scriptures and unpacks the practical response that goes along with each wonderfully dramatic, empowering, and liberating truth.
Readers will consider like never before the Bible's descriptions of God followers as priests, brides, servants, friends, aliens, and ambassadors. Both challenged and encouraged, they will discover their deepest self and greatest purpose in "Identity."

Good - Could Be Better Nov 28, 2009
Identity is a good book but could have been better. The young author does show a good understanding but failed to include three important characteristics of the New Covenant believer. Namely the fact we ARE; Holy, Righteous, and Saints. These paramount teachings of the Apostle Paul anchor the believer, enlighten sanctification, and establish the NT church. Idenity is well worth reading but should be followed up with such works as; Steve McVey's "Grace Walk" or Watchman Nee's "The Normal Christian Life."

This is a great book, I would recomend this book to anybody that wants a closer walk with the Lord. I got so much out of this book that I plan on reading it again.
A book for everyone Sep 25, 2008
I found myself in every chapter of this book. As a former teacher my goal was to help students determine who they were and the difference they could make. I wish I had this book then! Geiger's writings were certainly informational, but they were keenly practical and funny (found myself reading passages outloud to my family and friends). This book is powerful for everyone, perfect gift for students/graduates and a great tool for any staff or team.
Great Book! Sep 18, 2008
For anyone looking for a refreshing and motivating challenge in their walk with God.....this is the book! Written in an easy to read format with scripture and examples, I now have a better understanding about how belonging to Christ impacts my life and how to move forward in my faith journey. The author is so relevant and engaging.....you won't want to put the book down!
Another great one by Geiger! Sep 15, 2008
Eric's last book looked at the basics that are essential for a solid church, now it seems that he has turned his attention to a topic that is essential for a solid believer. Eric does a very thorough job of walking the reader through the riches of a Christian's identity in Christ, yet does it in a very understandable way with the use of personal stories and other simplifying techniques. A great study for all believers!
