Do You Know Who I Am?

Angela Thomas's newest book releases today: Do You Know Who I Am?

About the Book (from Amazon.com):

In her book Do You Know Who I Am? Angela Thomas asks God if He knows her—and ultimately does He love her—as she is, right now, today. In each chapter, she names a different identity issue, such as: “I am invisible,” “I am worn out,” “I am undisciplined,” “I am ordinary,” and “I am afraid to dream.” With each honest admission, Angela teaches that God lovingly replies, “Yes, I know your heart. I see your struggle. Now…do you know who I AM?”

Ultimately Angela reveals that the secret to being known and loved lies in an intimate understanding of who God is. Each identity struggle is answered with a short biblical study on the character of God that assures readers that their personal, spiritual, and eternal fulfillment is not dependent on getting themselves together. Rather, God has a purpose for them just as they are—broken, afraid, disappointed, disillusioned.

Through vivid storytelling, biblical teaching, and practical application, readers will find the heartfelt answers they seek.

Pattie's Review:

Do You Know Who I Am? holds nothing back--and that's a good thing. In the transparent yet engaging - and encouraging - style of her previous books Do You Think I'm Beautiful? and A Beautiful Offering, Angela takes us into the Word of God in search of the question "Who am I?" and ends up asking God, "Do You know who I am?" God asks the same of us: "Do you know Who I AM?"

Each chapter examines an attribute of God in light of one of our own weaknesses as women. The answers are not Angela's, however--they are God's. Her Biblical scholarship is easy to follow and to understand, while being solid and thorough.

This book is a nice mix of real-life story and Biblical truth. I always enjoy Angela Thomas's books, and this one is no exception. It is a book to savor and to study. In fact, with questions for discussion in the back, I hope to study this book with a group at some point.

Thanks to Angela Thomas and her publisher, Howard Books/Simon & Schuster,
for a review copy of this book.
