Freedom by Joy Ohagwu is a contemporary Christian suspense. It is the seventh book in the New Rulebook series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Freedom continues the story of the Towers as Robert is fighting a presidential campaign. God is very much at the centre of the novel. In Him we are new creations, no matter what our past. God has redeemed us and if we recognise His calling on our lives, we will be much richer.
The past has the power to affect our future. Joy Ohagwu shows how we need to rob the past of its power by submitting our lives to God. “I won’t clutch the rags of my past when a glorious future awaits at His feet.” We need to trust God and follow His plan for our lives. We need to be “trusting God in chaos.”
The power of prayer is shown. We need to fight our battles in prayer and trusting God for the outcome.
Family is important. Family can make the difference and turn “a house into a home.”
Throughout the novel, there was the theme of freedom. True freedom comes from knowing God. If we know Him, then no matter what our circumstances, we will be free and we will know peace. True freedom is never found in a thing but in a person… and His name is Jesus.
Freedom was another marvellous offering from Joy Ohagwu. A great story with a strong Christian message.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
