Publisher's Description

Often when people follow Jesus, they feel more guilty instead of more free. A powerful book for the spiritually restless, Unchained 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.

    A deep dive into understand freedom through the law

    Lately, there's been a restlessness in my soul. A need to dig deep into scripture and find truth. To understand the things that have long confused me. I've wanted to better understand the freedom that we are given in Christ.

    I picked up Unchained: If Jesus has Set us Free, Why Don't we Feel Free? recently and started a long journey down the path of understanding the law and how it applies to us today.

    It wasn't an easy journey to understand the law and how Paul applies it to our lives today. But in Unchained, Noel Jesse Heikkinen does his best to help us understand the freedoms that we now have.

    Heikkinen starts this book with an overview of Old Testament law. He dives in deep to help us understand the main parts of the law and how it can apply to us today.

    The belief is that without an understanding of the main tenants of the old law, we won't be able to live in freedom through the law today. However, Heikkinen is also quick to remind us that Jesus fulfilled the law perfectly.

    When He came, He perfectly fulfilled the Law and its demands by living a sinless life. His death, burial, and resurrection put a period on the end of the Law's sentence.

    I found Unchained to be a deep dive into the law and Pauls words on the law. However, Heikkinen applies the law to current life situations. It helped to bring a greater understanding to how the law applies to us today. Unchained provides space to unpack what Paul says about the law and how we are now set free to do things because of the law rather than kept from doing things.

    I feel like I have a greater understanding of the freedoms we have been given. The hope that we have because of Jesus allows us to live set free to love and truly live free.

    I received a copy of this book from David C. Cook and NetGalley. This review is my own, honest opinion.

    I was very intrigued by this book based on the title and description, "Unchained: if Jesus has set us free, why don't we feel free?" I mean the word freedom is so big and has so many meanings and really is an important concept to so many, but in different ways. Freedom, rights, privileges are such hot topics in society and yet it may be ourselves whom are limiting our own freedoms and limiting the feelings of freeness and freedom that we each long to experience. I found this book to be eye-opening and thought-provoking as I read through each chapter I really thought about myself and the limits, the rules I make for myself, and then what God says and His expectations for me. I loved that there are discussion questions included at the end of each chapter; I read this through myself, but would love to do this with a small group in the future and those questions will be perfect!

    I had never heard of this author until I got the email with the review opportunity. The book sounded both helpful and good, so I requested it.

    This is something I personally struggle with, knowing I am forgiven, yet not really feeling free. I say that so it is obvious I am reading and reviewing this book as a person who genuinely needs it. And I can honestly say the author came through. I know it takes more than reading a book and having a "aha" moment to truly change old habits and feelings, but I feel I was helped and encouraged by reading it, and anyone else can who struggles in this area.

    The author has an easy to read style, and I didn't feel the urge to skim over any areas. He knows his stuff, and has a lot of practical and Biblical thoughts and advice on how to feel free. Each chapter is followed by several discussion questions, making it a great book to use for a group study or alone.

    I am not a Calvinist, so I do take issue with his declaration that we will still sin as Christians.... it takes away the whole "freedom of sin" and "sin not having dominion" idea away..... but other than that, there is still a lot of good in this book and it could help others in this area of not feeling free.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Galatians 5:1 says Christians have been set free by Christ. But what does that mean and why don't we feel free?

    Every once and a while a book comes along that I think does an excellent job of exploring a difficult topic in the Christian faith. Such is this book on the subject of freedom.

    Heikkinen writes, "...freedom ought to be one of the defining marks of a follower of Jesus." He helps us understand what freedom is. We might think it means being able to do whatever we want. He clarifies that misunderstanding, explaining what we are free from and the new law we are now under.

    I really appreciated his exploration of the scary nature of freedom, that we don't know what to do with it. We don't have control over it. We can't monitor our Christian walk so we create structure and rules. He helps us understand true guilt, how we are set free from it and shame. We learn what obedience to Jesus is, concentrating on the "dos" and not the "don'ts."

    I really like this book. Heikkinen helped me understand the freedom we have in Christ, what it means and does not mean. I highly recommend it to Christians who want to understand and experience the freedom we have in Christ. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter so this book would be great for classroom or small group use.

    Food for thought: sin - anytime we are unlike God in any way.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
