Exodus is a real story about God redeeming his people from the bondage of slavery and how their difficult journey home exposed their loyalties-though wounded by Egypt, they had come to worship its gods. Most Christians don't make golden idols like the Israelites in the wilderness, but we do set up idols on our own desert road-idols like substance abuse, pornography, gluttony, and rage. And even those who don't know the pain of actual slavery can feel enslaved to the fear and shame that follow sexual abuse or betrayal by a spouse, for we suffer at the hands of our idols as well as those created by others. We need more than self-improvement or comfort-we need redemption.

Redemption is not a step-oriented recovery book; it's story-oriented and Bible-anchored. It unfolds the back-story of redemption in Exodus to help Christians better understand how Christ redeems us from the slavery of abuse, addiction and assorted trouble and restores us to our created purpose, the worship of God. Readers will discover that the reward of freedom is more than victory over a habitual sin or release from shame; it is satisfaction and rest in God himself. Part of the Re: Lit series.

    This was a very encouraging book that reflects the important truth that while we are redeemed by God when we accept his salvation, there is a path that takes time to bring us to the ultimate renewal at the coming of our Lord. There is much hope here for those who feel they have failed or Wandered. I love the concept of “already and not yet”
