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.
“Jonathan Cruse offers a rich and accessible account of the believer’s union with Christ, a vital biblical teaching.

“While many books have been written on the doctrine of the believer’s union with Christ, there is still a need for a text that can give a clear explanation of this comforting truth and its benefits to the average reader. That is, until now. With The Christian’s True Identity, Jonathan Cruse has filled this need, drawing from his experience as poet and preacher to communicate the beauty and magnitude of this doctrine in a clear, direct, and heartening manner.”
