Book Review of Bound To Be Free By D.A. Horton

I wanted to talk a little about bound to be free book.  The title itself made me want to read it because as Children of God, when you first give your life to Christ you don’t quite know how to walk out being free in Christ although the bible tells us we have it through Christ.   I love grace.  This books deals with the subject matter of grace and what I like most about it, is that it does not just talk about grace, that we are not perfect, we sin, God forgives but how to walk it grace and what grace truly means according to the bible.  I loved the different parts and how it was broken down.   The perfectionism Tram and where we actually do and encounter that makes this a trap of perfectionism. So of which you may not even know falls under that trap which is quite interesting because you are being set free just learning about that. I won’t spoil the details and insights too much here.   The second section which is really liberating is the Trap of God’s grace.  Who want to know you are wrong but don’t know what to do to get it right? No one I’d hope so this sections talks and shows you how to escape the trap of perfectionism.   This reminds me of the scripture that the bible speaks of God always providing a way of escape for us. 

I also enjoyed that this book is not just a read but it gives scriptures so you can learn, grow and be fed enough though it is a book to read.  I always look for Christian books to have enough scripture so that you can back up what you are saying.  I really enjoyed this book and the insight into becoming free.  The word of God says that we shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.  This freedom the book talks about is not something that we need to earn but is freely given to us through God’s Amazing Grace and we just need to tap into it. 

I received a free copy of this book for my honest opinion of this title.

Centralia Book Review

I wanted to talk about Centralia. This was a book that I started a while ago and even though it had some good parts that captured my interest, it did not capture me to keep reading and not stop. The characters and some of the events seemed unrealistic.  More Hollywood I can say.  I really wish I had more interest but it was really close to the Bourne identity movies and I really did not get into those movies.  I initially liked that the mom and daughter was missing and he was not sure what happened to them and all the other events were really to find them while he's trying to find out where he has learned all these fighting skills and how to get to centralia!!! I won't spoil the book but I would say if you are into the Bourne identity you would like this book and may find it pretty predictable.
