SAN DIEGO - April 29, 2013 - PRLog -- In a culture where image is everything, it’s tempting to
define ourselves according to the cultural icons of our day, but Pastor Miles McPherson
of The Rock Church, is going against the grain in his new book, “God in the Mirror:
Discovering Who You Were Created To Be,” releasing from Baker Publishing Group
March 1, 2013. In the book, McPherson encourages readers to think less of themselves
and more about God’s plan for their life.

Engulfed by a popular culture saturated with images of idealized, air-brushed and
unattainable physical beauty, men and women cannot escape feeling judged on
the basis of their appearance and often times forged identity. In “God in the Mirror,”
McPherson addresses the lies Satan uses to lead humans to sin; the obsession with
image, the feeling of worthlessness and the pressure to
follow the ways of society. McPherson explains to readers
how they were created, why they were created, what their
true purpose is, and how to remake themselves according
to God's original plan for their lives.

“Human beings are created in God’s image; if we really
take that truth to heart and live our lives in light of it,
everything changes,” said McPherson, who empowers
readers with the knowledge of their capacity to reflect
God’s heart to the world. “When we live more and more in
Him, we begin to experience transformed relationships
with each other and with God.”

In “God in the Mirror,” McPherson interacts with the reader by asking a series of
thought-provoking questions. He encourages readers to adjust their life and refocus
on God’s purpose. “This book helps readers see themselves through God’s eyes and
motivates one to reflect light to and onto others,” said McPherson. His unique take
on ‘made in the image of God’ delivers on the promise found in the book’s title.

“God in the Mirror” is accompanied by a six session DVD and discussion guide that
will equip individuals, small groups, and church classes to grapple with what it means
to be made in the image of God and what the implications are for our daily lives. Once
released on March 1, 2013, the book, discussion guide and DVD can be purchased
online at , or by calling 1-800-877-2665.
