If you are anything like me, you are sick and tired of Christian literature that leaves us feeling convicted and guilty, without leaving any hope or any idea of where to go from here. That is NOT what Craig Groeshel does in Altar Ego. Altar Ego not only will leave you longing for something more, but will give you a blueprint for how to find it. Greshel’s instructions to embrace our identity in Christ, accept eternal values and live boldly gives practical instruction for living as a true disciple without oversimplifying the Christian faith. Those in ministry will find that Altar Ego is not just a resource for personal discipleship, but a great tool for ministry, no matter what your context. You may very well find yourself inspired to create sermon series or perhaps a series of sermon series. The bottom line, Altar Ego is a book worth your while for anyone anywhere who is in ministry and/or a Christian serious about faithful discipleship.
