A Ministry of Make and Deepen Disciples

Embrace Webinar #4 – Dr. Klyne Snodgrass

Who God Says You Are: Christian Identity and Human Sexuality

On June 13th, we spoke with Dr. Klyne Snodgrass, professor emeritus of New Testament at North Park Theological Seminary (NPTS).

Who God Says You Are: A Christian Understanding of Identity

by: Klyne R. Snodgrass

Biblical answers to humanity’s most basic and pressing question

Who are you?

For respected New Testament scholar Klyne Snodgrass, this is the most important question a person can ask–the question from which everything else in life flows. Other questions follow: What made you who you are? Who gets to say who you are? And–perhaps most vital–who does God say you are?

In this book Snodgrass offers wise guidance to all who are wrestling with these universal human questions. He examines nine factors–including one’s body, personal history, commitments, and boundaries–that shape human identity, and he expertly draws out what the Bible tells us about who God says we are, how we fit within God’s purposes, and how our God-given identity can and must impact the way we live our lives.
