Freedom is a concept with many aspects. There is the freedom to think, speak and act, within reasonable laws, without fear of unjust punishment. If you break the law sufficiently, prison deprives you of physical freedom.
Freedom of the human spirit is very different, and is relatively independent of time and place. It has to do with our internal world – whether we experience life in exuberant freedom or in a miserable personal prison. It depends on how we relate to God’s original intention for humanity.
You may be physically free, but not free on the inside. On the other hand you may be in a prison cell, yet have become free on the inside. This book aims to show that you can be free on the inside, in every sense.
It all depends on whether you accept or reject the grace of God. While some people start with all the advantages in life and miss the goal, others, as described here, the hopeless cases, experience true freedom and happiness.
It happens in the most unexpected places and unpromising circumstances, but it can happen to anyone – you – when you let God lead the way.
