"David Benner is a keen student of both God and human personhood. It is a rare kind of book that combines wisdom about faith and understanding about the self. This is that kind of book." (John Ortberg, author and pastor)
Merton, Calvin, Augustine and Bonhoeffer other church fathers have called us into a deeper and full fellowship with God in Christ by learning who we really are. David G. Benner helps to remove the barriers and complicated ideas that keep us from knowing the true self by charting a clear course for us to do the hard work and follow Jesus into fullness of life.
Benner gives us reason to consider our own way of interacting with others and with God. Have we developed a false self? I was apprehensive about the thought of knowing God better by understand self, but there is a logic to it. Consider for yourself.
A wonderful and concise book about how we can know ourselves as we really are, which is how God knows us. It was eye-opening!
