SHE IS FREE, LEARNING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE LIES THAT HOLD YOU CAPTIVE, by Andi Andrew, Baker Books/Baker Publishing Group


34020328

We say we’re free in Christ, but many of us are still living in captivity–to fear, anger, shame, isolation, unforgiveness, and control. We’re good at faking it around others, but we’re exhausted by the ruse. Andi Andrew wants women to break free of their self-imposed prisons and live the lives that are rightly theirs in Christ.

Sharing her own intentional journey of finding true freedom by surrendering control of her heart and life to the God who welcomed her with open arms, Andrew encourages women to give their pain and brokenness to Jesus. She shows them how to purposefully take captive the lies they have believed and replace them with God’s truth. Compassionate and biblically based, She Is Free is an invitation to women to step fully into the love that sets them free.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Issues of living “in captivity–to fear, anger, shame, isolation, unforgiveness, and control.”

I thought the author did a good job conveying her perspective on the above, I just found it hard to read/follow and couldn’t stay interested.  Does this make the book a terrible one? No. Am I willing to recommend it to others? Yes.  I feel that when it comes to religion, since there are so many different faiths and understanding of each, I believe it’s up to each individual to read what they feel helps them along throughout life.  Who am I to dictate what is right or wrong when it comes to religion? I have my own beliefs and understanding of the gospels, and I’m no way qualified to question those of others.

Therefore, I will give this book a rating based on the writing itself and the author’s attempt at bringing her own thoughts to the table for discussion.  Read the book and see what you think.

I gave this book:

3-stars
