While there are a lot of books on the Christian life, they are mostly topical and it's easy to put your sword down and grow nonchalant or worse, backslide due to stress, worldly pursuits, and persecution and in the end fall away because of these vices. (Parable of the seed on various soil). However, this comprehensive yet compact book manages to prepare and equip by informing the believer what to expect (attacks, persecutions) and how to endure, be victorious and remain standing, repeat. These insights came about from memorizing books, not verses of the Bible, fasting and seeking the Messhiah Jesus, Holy Spirit, and Abba intently. The saying 'nothing good comes easy' comes to mind and fasting regularly and memorizing books of Scripture is certainly not easy by any means... How many ppl do you know have done so ? Exactly, so, expect vast insight from the Throne of Grace, itself and also a Gem of a book. GBUA (G-d Bless U All).
From first becoming a disciple of Christ until departing from this life to be with the Savior for eternity, knowing who God has made us is foundational to daily live and be the son or daughter of God that He's made us. In Spiritual Identity, Larry Silver walks us through this faith walk by highlighting numerous passages of Scripture that establish who God says we are and how we can become and accomplish all that God has prepared for us.

There's a deep peace and joy that can only come from knowing this truth of who I've been made in Christ, and realizing the life that will flow from me to others because of this. Dive right into Spiritual Identity and discover or rediscover this revolutionary truth, what God is saying about who He's made you.
This book was one of my “lamp stand” books. Many nights I read before I go to sleep at night. But I only read the best material that has come my way throughout the week. They are placed on my lamp stand. Spiritual Identity is one of those special books. First, it gave me confidence. For years.I lived in an atmosphere of insecurity, fear and defeat. But each chapter lifted me further and further out of the pit of self-pity and a sense of worthlessness. And it will do the same for you. This book also help me realized that I have worth. I am accepted. I am loved. Each chapter is filled with golden nuggets of truth that will set your free.
Although I have walked with the Lord for a while, reading this book was a refreshing reminder of what I've learned with a very relational twist that made the Truth more personal. It offered a nice challenge to recognize areas I am not fully walking in and take captive wrong thoughts leading to wrong actions. I would recommend this book not only for new followers but seasoned ones as well. It was well worth my time reading!
Larry Silver hits it right on the head. God DOES want me to know I am loved and treasured. The author gives lots of great examples and backs up each one with scripture. He helped me understand myself from God's perspective -- I never saw myself that way before reading this book. I'd recommend this book to any reader -- believer or not -- since God sees us ALL the same way. Spiritual Identity is especially for Christians who are young in faith, or those who can't stop doubting that God has transformed their lives. READ IT NOW and be changed!!
Spiritual Identity takes readers on an extraordinary journey of self-examination that brings about a highly personal understanding of issues we all wrestle with including meaningful self-purpose, as discovered through an intimate understanding of who God the Father, His son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are.
Larry Silver as written a truly remarkable spiritual filled masterpiece. Spiritual Identity examples that God has an individual spiritual life fulfilled plan for each of us. Spiritual Identity is a spirit-filled book that requires more than one read. It is a Holy Spirit inspired work that should be alongside your Bible to use as a reference. If you love reading Christian based material that Spiritual Identity needs to be at the top of your list.
As of this writing, this is one of the best books I've read to better understand my identity in Christ. Larry Silver does an excellent job, using Scripture, to explain there are a number of different components that make us who we are in the Lord. He does this using easy-to-understand language and relevant verses of the Bible. I highly recommend this book for people to understand a personal relationship with God.
