Fear To Freedom
In the past year, several reviews have been written that dealt with rape and abuse. Recently, I was contacted to review a book by Rosemary Trible, Fear To Freedom: What If You Did Not Have To Be So Afraid. Francine Rivers’ fiction book, The Atonement Child, provided a portrait of the angst that a rape victim suffers. One affect not focused on was fear. In Trible’s book of the account of her rape, she discusses the paralyzing fear that ensued and how she relied on God to bring her through to the other side…to heal her.
The second verse that I thought of while reading her book was 2 Timothy 1:7 which states, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. While this book focused on fear that was the result of rape, the steps to recovery and the reliance on God could apply to many situations. People live in fear due to many things: unemployment, collapse of the financial markets, foreclosure, robbery, et cetera. Trible’s book will be an inspiration to anyone who suffers from fear for any reason.
Bible verses are all from the King James Version.
