EQUIP19 Picks - 10 books chosen and reviewed for you by our EQUIP team

Identity Theft edited by Melissa Kruger pinpoints some of the common lies that we believe about what defines us; issues like our work, our marital status and even our social network. We are fed these lies from our society, the devil, or even ourselves - when our consciences lead us astray. This book is easy to read and accessible for women of different ages, backgrounds and life experiences. Each chapter is written by a different woman, addresses a different ‘lie’ and provides a counter truth from God’s Word.

The women helpfully bring their own personal struggles to the book. As I read their reflections, it was like an older sister reminding me, that my true identity is found only in Christ; that I have been rescued by grace, am beloved by the Father, clothed in splendor, filled with the Holy Spirit and a citizen of heaven, just to name a few! There is great beauty in the picture this book (and the Bible) paints of our true, eternal identity. It would be a great choice to read with a friend or group of Christian sisters, as there’s a set of discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

The EQUIP19 Picks will be available at the conference book shop on Saturday June 22. And for a limited time, online via our ministry partner, Reformers Bookshop.

A percentage of the sales from books bought at EQUIP19, and via the above link will support our CMS missionary, M.

Meet Sarah Cameron

Sarah is on the EQUIP women team and we are very thankful for her wisdom and grace in the never-ending task of curating our social media.

Along with Gus and their three toddlers, they live in one of the most culturally diverse suburbs in Sydney’s south-west. We’re not quite sure how she manages it with three toddlers, but you’ll often find Sarah writing a review on our EQUIP Book Club. And you might meet her at Equip19 if you take a picture at our ‘photo booth’.
