Identity in Messiah: Finding Strength to Stand in the Last Days by Wendy Halloun is a book that couldn’t be timelier, a great gift of faith and grace. The author writes about one of the most important topics — identity in Christ. In this book, readers will understand what they are called to “be” as followers of Jesus Christ. It is a book that explains the biblical meaning of being 'new creatures' - a book with a road map to dwelling in Christ and being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. In this slim but beautiful book, the author explores themes like the journey with Christ, the nature of God and His ultimate purpose for humanity, the manifestation of God’s kingdom in the virtues of faith, love and hope, and a lot more. This book is designed to help readers prepare for their ultimate encounter with God, a book with wonderful tools to acquire inner freedom in a world that has rendered most of us slaves.

This book will remind believers of what they are called to be: one with Christ. The author warns: “If our identity is in our own strength, intelligence, willpower or emotional fortitude, it will not last. The only way forward is to die to ourselves and take up the life of Messiah.” The book has powerful biblical underpinnings, a beautiful demonstration of the message of God’s love in the Bible and what He calls each of us to become. The author gives flesh to her writing with her personal story and uses biblical references to support her arguments. Identity in Messiah: Finding Strength to Stand in the Last Days is one of those books that will help readers remember who they are and to travel the path destined for them. Each chapter also contains questions for reflection and it becomes easy for readers to find themselves looking at their lives in a completely new light.
