Book Review: Free Book by Brian Tome

 
Have you ever come across a resource that makes your skin crawl? Not from the bad, but because it makes you see something in yourself that you wish was not there? That is what happened to me when I read this book by Brian Tome.
I have read many books about being free from strongholds in my life, but none have ever touched me and really got ahold of me like this book did. There were many times while reading this book that I wanted to throw it out the window. My flesh balked at the fact that I can be truly free! 

There were some things in this book that were pretty rough to swallow, especially if you have ever grown up believing things a certain way only to realize that there is another way to view things. This book is not for everyone--I promise you. Even at times I was not sure I wanted to continue reading it, but I am glad I did.
I learned about freedom from people, freedom from man's religious beliefs, and freedom from myself--TRUE FREEDOM.

Book Description

"I am a fanatic about freedom. And I'm fanatical about coming at you hard in this book."
Maybe you're not as free as you think you are. Even worse, you may have been duped into believing that a "balanced" life is the key to happiness (it isn't) or that a relationship with God is about layering on rules and restrictions (nope).
Whether it’s media-fueled fear, something a parent or teacher said that you just can’t shake, or even the reality of dark spiritual forces bent on keeping you down, something is holding you back from the full-on freedom God intends for you.
The Bible says, "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." Not fear. Not guilt. Not morality. Freedom. You can have the sort of joy you thought only kids could have. The day of freedom is here.

Hey, Jennifer. Sounds like a great book. I was wondering why there are no links for obtaining the book. Yes, I can search it myself, but usually a review will contain a link. Is this a Thomas Nelson review?

Hey Dianne,

I fixed it and added a link to the book on Amazon.
