Who am I really? Am I the person that I think I am or hope others think I am? How do I make judgements about myself or my self-image? How obsessed am I with my self-esteem? Which mirror do I use to see my true reflection? Do I use a mirror like the ones at a funfair, that distort and corrupt my appearance and, if so, am I even aware of it?
Mirror, Mirror is a very clear description of how conditioned we are to allowing the world to reflect back to us an image that demands success and status with all the negativity that heaps on us. But there is another mirror that God has provided for us in His Word and as we work through the 150 pages of the book, we find that it is there that human life finds its true identity with all the freedom and dignity that comes from being in Christ. Challenging and encouraging, Graham Beynon provides us with an image of ‘humble dignity’ that is very appealing.
