A Scandalous Freedom

( 6 )

Overview

Christians do not trust freedom. As author Steve Brown explains in this brave new book, they prefer the security of rules and self-imposed boundaries, which they tend to inflict on other Christians. Brown asserts that real freedom means the freedom to be wrong as well as right. Christianity often calls us to live beyond the boundaries, bolstered by the assurance that we cannot fall beyond God's love.

Overview

Christians do not trust freedom. As author Steve Brown explains in this brave new book, they prefer the security of rules and self-imposed boundaries, which they tend to inflict on other Christians. Brown asserts that real freedom means the freedom to be wrong as well as right. Christianity often calls us to live beyond the boundaries, bolstered by the assurance that we cannot fall beyond God's love. Freedom is dangerous, but the alternative is worse — boxing ourselves up where we cannot celebrate our unique gifts and express our joy in Christ. Each of the book's eleven chapters explores a common pharisaic, freedom-stifling tendency, then opens the door to the fresh air of a remedial liberty. A reader's delight, A Scandalous Freedom sometimes shocks with challenges to prevailing wisdom, but it follows up with compelling validations of our need to celebrate real, unstinted freedom in Christ.

    Freedom in life at last!

    This book has shown me that true freedom in being a Christian does exist. After growing up in the church for almost 50 years, I have learned a lot about rules, regulations, right and wrong but not too much about freedom in being a Christian. This book has shown me that as Christians, we are to have more freedom! What a relief. It has taken a burden off my heart, allowed me to love God freely because I want to and not feel so condemned. It is a wonderful book that can be applied to your heart.

    Must read!

    Excellent book. Jesus Christ wants a relationship with each of us....it's not about religion....it's about the true freedom we have in Christ....not the do's and dont's "people" have created.

    If all is well, don't read this book

    If you experience the Freedom to be yourself, this book will be "preaching to the chior". However, if you struggle with religous rules, acting differently around others to "save face", or ever wonder if you really matter....read this book.

    Read it with the knowledge that you will face some challenging thoughts about life as you know it. Enjoy it for Brown's candid revelations and quirky situations. Soak it in for a changed perspective and fuller life.
