Benner, a spiritual director and a psychologist, writes crisply and thoughtfully, inviting readers to explore the concepts of identity and authenticity, the transformational knowledge of self and God, how to identify our “false self,” who we are in reaction to the world around us, and finding our true self, who God created us to be. Each chapter has a practical application of the principles presented. And at the end of the book, there is a 1-session and a 6-session study guide, to be used in groups or for personal reflection.
