Publisher's Summary

You are NOT who you think you are. In fact, according to best-selling author Craig Groeschel in Altar Ego, you need to take your idea of your own identity, lay it down on the altar, and sacrifice it. Give it to God. Offer it up. 

Why? Because you are who God says you are. And until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be. 

When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are as his sons and daughters. Instead of an outward-driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an "altar" ego, God’s vision of who we are becoming. 

Discover how to trade in your broken ego and unleash your altar ego to become a living sacrifice. Once we know our true identity and are growing in our Christ-like character, then we can behave accordingly, with bold behavior, bold prayers, bold words, and bold obedience. 

Altar Ego reveals who God says you are, and then calls you to live up to it.

Challenging and engaging

What does Craig Groeschel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It was good having the author read the book. It made the transparent parts of the book believable.

What did you learn from Altar Ego that you would use in your daily life?

I was reminded and challenged by the idea that I'm an ambassador for Christ and that makes me the highest ranking official of His kingdom in my sphere of influence.

Fantastic Spiritual Growth book!

A great book from the founder of Lifechurch. It gave me guidance in some areas and peace in others. A great read for a spiritual boost! I have re-read this story many times and still enjoy the insight.

My first audio book

very encouraging, very inspiring, and great for people like me who are new to christianity. I honestly dont think there was anything wrong with this book, I just didnt give it a full 5 stars because I felt a little side tracked midway thru from the main point of the book. please dont think of my 3 stars are anything negative, I've become a big fan of Craig groeschel and really enjoy his books!

Great Book for Becoming a Better Person

Amazing book! Loved every part of this book and look forward to reading again. Would highly recommend to others who are struggling with being put into a "box" by others.

Poor performance

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book is a good story and somewhat worth the time. However, the author begins to repeat himself toward the end of the book.

What could Craig Groeschel have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Remove some of the redundancy.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator smacks his lips between words. Really annoying!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No
