Truly Free by Robert Morris: review

I wasn't entirely sure what this book was about when it was initially offered to me. The title sounded okay, but again, wasn't totally sure. The book surprised me, in a good way, and I ended up really enjoying it. Though there was a few pages on demons that I was unfamiliar with and also hadn't really seen mentioned in many other books that caught me off guard.

Truly Free is about making sure that you are breaking free from the snares in your life that keep you from fully devoting yourself to God and your faith. The contents loosely follow what most people would call the Seven Deadly Sins which I found appropriate, though it does have a few extra that work well with the flow of the book.

While I hadn't really heard of Robert Morris previously, I was aware of his church which is a short drive from my hometown in North Texas. It's a large, megachurch that I have many friends who attend and love. Since he's a Texan, I enjoyed his little anecdotes on just Texan life and how it applies with faith.

I fully believe if one specific "snare" is catching you up, you could open this book and read that chapter for guidance, though the entire book is well worth the read as well! See below for a screenshot of the chapters.

The end of the book has additional helpful information that would be appropriate for a new believer, but might also be beneficial for a long time believer. A section called "Making Sure You're Born Again." I can see how this might apply to someone who has gone to church forever and just assumes they are born again but maybe isn't sure. There is also a few pages on further reading that might be helpful in conjunction with this book.  

I received this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.
