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.

I recommend it with enthusiasm. Christians around the globe need this book. Read it and be healed. This book is riveting but more important, it is life-transforming!”
Learn to live in FREEDOM. Free of the consequences of pain inflicted upon us, and pain inflicted by ourselves. God’s Word tells us true freedom is found in HIS word and presence. Christ’s desire is for believers to be transformed, not just saved.
Bound to Be Free leads believers step-by-step through God’s healing process and transformation. The study focuses heavily on scripture, as the only path to lasting restoration, and leads believers through the process of identifying and overcoming hindrances. This enables believers to achieve power in their daily Christian walk and show the transforming power of Christ in the church.
Our Father knows each person’s story. He knows how each one of us can overcome the pain and disappointment in our lives. While some numb the pain others walk through the fire, allowing The Refiner to mold us into the precious treasure He created us to be. Take a step in your journey to victory today.
