Unmasking the Ego
Groeschel’s “Altar Ego” takes its name from the term “alter ego,” which often refers to a second self or a hidden identity. The book invites readers to explore their own hidden identities and discover the person they were truly meant to be. Groeschel argues that many individuals hide behind a facade, influenced by societal expectations, fear, and insecurity. Through personal anecdotes and biblical references, he encourages readers to let go of their false identities and embrace their true selves.

Identity in Christ
A central theme in “Altar Ego” is the idea that one’s true identity is found in their relationship with God.
