Book Review: Fear to Freedom

I recently finished reading the book Fear to Freedom by Rosemary Trible. What a beautiful story of a woman who chose to go from victim to victory, who chose to not live her life in fear after being raped at gunpoint.

Mrs. Trible weaves a beautiful path from her life before the rape on through the journey back to joy and how she has helped numerous women find joy after tragedy. I find it easier to relate to a books topic when the author tells stories, which Mrs. Trible does often. When you have not experienced the tragedies that many others have, it can be hard to understand their feelings, their fears, their struggle to find hope again. I also love pictures and she shares several pictures of her life. I find it's easier to relate to a person when you can get a glimpse into their life.

At the end of the book there is a devotional guide with some wonderful questions. I would recommend doing the guide after reading each chapter. There is a scripture to read, a section called Pause and Reflect, and sometimes one called Practical Process. It is lovingly and thoughtfully written. It is easy to understand.

This is a book that is well written and really should be on everyone's shelf because there will come a point in your life when you encounter someone who has been a victim of a crime that you could not possibly comprehend and you will then know how to respond to them.


With Joy UNquenchable,
