Review:
Confidence, identity and godliness are challenges! We don't instantly discover ourselves, and many can feel as though they are spending their lives feeling like they are living a lie.

We can be torn apart by our duplicity or we can become so comfortable with putting on various personas to suit our situation that we don't even realize we're doing it. But if we are authentic followers of Jesus, our identity is already decided. David Swanson offers a thorough, inspiring and enlightening work that is worthy of a close reading.

What we need to learn is how to understand and embrace our new life, made possible through Christ. Swanson will engage the masks, identity, transparency and peace that is assured through faith. As Robert Frost said: "freedom lies in being bold"! Top class stuff!
