The title is obviously captivating. I came to learn about it from an article I read online written by Faith who thereafter shared the book. Living in a world filled with confusion, figuring out one’s identity (place and purpose in this world) is a great struggle, and only the brave and true led by the Lord emerge victorious.
The ideas in the book were interesting to me because I studied psychology in school. The psychologist "Erick Erickson" talks about developmental stages, and in the teenage years the most crucial thing is the Identity vs. Role confusion. During this stage, adolescents are trying to leave behind their childhoods and dip their feet into the waters of adulthood. They’re trying to find their place in society.
The goal of this developmental stage is identity formation. Teenagers will try different identities to see what works for them. Parents and society provide them with the templates to conduct these identity trials. These templates tell them who to be and how to behave…
With the above background I came to relearn much more about Identity Wars which range from childhood till one dies. Satan and His kingdom are in dire need of ensuring everyone partakes of the fruit of the forbidden tree, which results in total dependence on oneself rather than our creator. This is what the book refers to as life powered by the Duracell – and a Duracell battery eventually runs out (where as dependence on God is an infinite energy source, eternal life).
