The Christian's True Identity (Cruse)

SKU 9781601787255


What It Means to Be in Christ


With its identity politics, numerous gender identity options, "selfies," and "you-do-you" mentality, society emphasizes individualism, but it seems like people are having a harder time than ever figuring out who they are. The problem is, they are looking for their identity in the wrong places.


Are you seeking your identity in relationships, a career, family, race, gender expression, or other circumstances--and feeling dissatisfied? Then this book is for you.


Author Jonathan Landry Cruse offers a fresh, sometimes witty, truly radical, freeing answer to the important question of who you are and helps you understand what the Bible has to say about everything you need for a lasting, fulfilling identity that is found outside of you and in Christ.

  • "Dear believer--in what or in whom do you find your true identity? This is a question that every Christian should be able to answer with relative ease. And yet, in our age of superficial evangelicalism, it seems that few believers are equipped to do so. In The Christian's True Identity, Jonathan Landry Cruse beautifully and skillfully unpacks the riches of the Gospel, powerfully demonstrating how union with Christ--and the benefits that flow from that union--define and shape the believer's true identity. Spiritually united to Christ, and fully accepted in the beloved, we no longer let the world define us or press us into its idolatrous mold. Now that's good news that fosters both freedom and piety! Read and digest this book. You will never be the same." - Jon D. Payne, Senior Pastor, Christ Church Presbyterian, Charleston, SC; Executive Coordinator, Gospel Reformation Network
