The Story Behind ‘Unchained’

March 27th, 2017

Christians are free in Christ, yet Christianity can feel like a prison.  Often when people follow Jesus, they feel more guilty instead of more free. A powerful book for the spiritually restless, Unchained by Noel Jesse Heikkinen shows readers how to have a robust faith that celebrates their freedom in Christ without compromising their holiness as God’s followers.

Unchained turns to the person and work of Jesus Christ as the source of freedom—not just his work 2,000 years ago but also what he is doing today. As readers dig into the meaning of the freedom that Jesus offers, they will understand, perhaps for the first time, what true freedom in Christ means.

Organize my children for school. Thank goodness they’re old enough to be pretty responsible (although my youngest needs a bit more supervision to ensure he has his lunch packed and matching socks!).

After the school run it’s time for a walk, to clear my head and get my exercise in for the day.
