Soul Print by Mark Batterson
Batterson takes an insightful look into the person God created you to be. Like a fireside camper he narrates through the story of the shepherd king. David’s life serves as a case study for our own transformation. Every scene unpacks the concept of our soul print and how we have been tailor made to praise God like no one else.
Mark is a pastoral poet. His captures big ideas into simple phrases. Be prepared to drink deeply from scripture and enjoy the stories that play themselves out in the imagination of the author. You and Pastor B are going to get to know each other but don’t get distracted; small treasures are everywhere to be found!
King David looks like you. Batterson does well to draw out a meaningful metaphor from the life of the greatest King of Israel. His insight cuts deep and quick; anxious to move onto the next part of David’s story. The final chapter of Soul Print is dedicated to reflection. It is a necessary piece of the puzzle and would have made for great content in each of the preceding chapters.
Soul Print tells the moving story of how God created you. Pop some corn and read it out loud. Just be prepared for see yourself in a new way that is just as unsettling as it is encouraging.
