Today known as the author of the mega-seller The Bondage Breaker and the founder of Freedom in Christ ministries, Neil Anderson didn't always know that he was called to serve the Lord as a Christian minister. Though he is sure of his calling now, he readily admits that he has never sought a position in ministry and though he has founded and led a successful international parachurch organization, he refuses to spend a minute of his time to keep it in business.
The son and grandson of Norwegian farmers, Anderson grew up in rural Minnesota. He was a fun-loving, sports-crazy child, and no one suspected that God had planted a seed in him that would lead first to years as a pastor, then to teach in seminary, write or coauthor sixty books, and found a global ministry. Here he honestly shares his journey, complete with struggles and trials as he learns to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Though he still asks God, "Why me?" he continues to set people on the path to true freedom in Christ.

Anderson in his new book, "Rough Road to Freedom" published by Monarch Books gives us his memoir.
From the back cover: Neil Anderson comes from a humble farming background. No one suspected that this fun-loving, athletic child would complete five degrees, author or co-author sixty books and found a global ministry. Neil served in the US Navy, then graduated in electrical engineering and worked as an aerospace engineer before sensing a call to ministry. He spent years as a church pastor and seminary professor before starting Freedom in Christ Ministries.
"God put a burden on my heart to see captives set free and their emotional wounds healed," he writes. "But my early education was steeped in western rationalism. It has taken me years to discover the reality of the spiritual world, and learn to be guided by the Holy Spirit." Freedom in Christ Ministries equips the church to help people become fully alive, and free in Christ.
You know what is fun about reading the Bible? That it is a book filled with stories about people. We read about Abraham, Moses, David, Peter, Paul, the list is quite extensive. Well we can now add to this list the name of Neil T. Anderson. When you we read the Book of Acts we find that it points to more stories that are coming they just haven't happened yet. Neil Anderson gives us his story from his time on the farm in rural Minnesota through his stint in the Navy and his working in aerospace. Then God called him. Think it would be easy then? No, Mr. Anderson has his ups and downs, he makes mistakes, he has to learn to trust God in a whole new manner. Through his stories we learn what a man can accomplish through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our faith is challenged when we read what Mr. Anderson has been able to accomplish. What God will do for one man God will do for another, God treats everyone the same. This is a marvelous story about the journey of one man as he walks with the Lord and follows His leading. I enjoyed it and was deeply blessed. I recommend this book highly!
