Set Free to Serve God
God's Word uses the human institution of slavery to illuminate the insidious nature of sin and His glorious gift of freedom. Understanding slavery from a biblical perspective can help us gain a more important understanding of sin and salvation, strengthening the Christian woman to remain faithful unto death or the return of Christ.
Lisa Ivey Waller draws from biblical passages and American history as she weaves together the story of our redemption through Jesus Christ's death and resurrection. From the law of the Old Testament through the covenant of the New Testament, Waller describes our bondage in sin and our joyous freedom in obedience to God.
