I’d made it a few pages into the book, and had obviously made several exasperated sounds because she suddenly said, “Why do you keep signing up to review Bible studies. You never like them.”
It wasn’t an unfair statement, but it irritated me nonetheless. After all, I want to like them, and I figured I was bound to find one I would wholeheartedly recommend… someday. On the other hand, it was–unfair that is.
“What’re you talking about? Who said I didn’t like it?”
“You do? You sound put out.”
After a pause to consider how to explain my huffs of frustration, the words came to me. “It isn’t that I disagree with the stuff in this book… it’s that I want to do the study. I want to dive into it. Right now. And I can’t.”
“So, you’re frustrated that you like it?”
She asked about the name. “What was it called again?”
“Bound to Be Free .”

Why You’ll Get All Wrapped Up in This Book
As a Bible study book, Bound to Be Free offers a dig into the Bible in search of true and complete freedom in Christ. Because of the nature of the book, I didn’t read every word of the ARC I was freely provided with, but I did read most paragraphs in the first three chapters to see how I felt about their contents. I must say that I found it meaty, enriching, and worth the time. I didn’t find anything in the narrative portions that made me do a double-take, but as I didn’t read every word of the book or even those chapters, it is very possible I could have missed something.
Still, I think people looking for a book that encourages them to embrace true freedom in Christ–to learn what that really is–Bound to Be Free offers exactly what I think they’re looking for. I’m thankful for the free review copy I received, and am looking forward to working through every bit of the study. Recommended with the only caveat that I haven’t read every word.
