The Vertical Self by Mark Sayers
If you’re looking for a self-help, Dr. Phil approach to finding your untapped potential and personality, this book isn’t it. And truthfully, I can think of no higher praise to offer Mark Sayers.
If you are looking for a Christian perspective not just on western culture, but on the effects of western culture on the Church and on the individual, then you need to add this book to your library and you need to read it with pen, paper and sticky notes close by. Sayers cuts through all of the pomp and splendor of our concepts of “image” and challenges us to begin the search for our true self, which is often difficult and frustrating.
I’ve read so many books that talk about our desires and why we are the way we are and…et cet. But this is the first book I’ve read that ends with a clear teaching about holiness, peace, sanctification, and becoming our redeemed selves.
