Product Description

After he began attending an African-American Church, legendary song-writer and musician Michael Card was struck by a term used by the congregation in worship-"Master." He learned that slaves in the South used the term to express their independence from the earthly master's, who were not their true master's, and to acknowledge Christ as the true Master. This insight led Card on a journey to understand what it means to call Jesus, Master.

A Better Freedom explores the biblical imagery of slavery as a metaphor for Christian discipleship. Card shows how the early church viewed Greco-Roman slavery as a window into understanding Jesus both as a savior who took on the form of a slave, but also the true Lord and Master who sets us free from our own slavery to sin.

Publisher's Description

When Michael Card first started attending an African American church, he was struck by how the congregation worshiped Jesus as "Master." He soon learned that during slavery, calling Jesus "Master" was a subtle way of saying that their earthly masters were not their true Master. This insight led Card on a journey of discovery, as he wondered, "What did it mean for African American slaves to acknowledge Jesus as Master? What did Paul, Peter, Jude and James mean when they acknowledged themselves as Christ's slaves? What would it mean for you and me to take upon ourselves the title 'slave of Christ'?" A Better Freedom explores the biblical imagery of slavery as a metaphor for Christian discipleship. Michael Card shows how the early church saw Greco-Roman slavery as a window into understanding Jesus both as the Savior who took on the form of a slave, but also the true Lord and Master who sets us free from our own slavery to sin. Come, let yourself be captured by the Master. And discover how you can be truly set free.

    This is a powerful book which stirs the imagination. The work of Jesus is that of God Who humbled Himself and became a slave in order to win us to God. In turn, we, as His people are slaves to our Master, Christ. The title Michael Card gives is exactly right, "A Better Freedom", for that is what it is to serve Christ, rather than the tawdry, imposter gods of our age. I highly recommend this book.
