My review: Enslaved to Saved by W. Reid Litchfield
This book I read fast to get my review ready, but it really needs to be studied there is so much information in it. I think I could read it a lot of times and learn something new each time.
I did not know all about the slavery at the time of Christ. How big it really was and what it all entailed. He talks about slavery in the Roman Empire, about the Christians and their slaves.
How the slaves were not considered human beings by a lot of people.
He also talks about the meaning of the words slavery and servant used by transcribers. What the words Jesus Christ meant when he was saying servants. How are commitment to him should be.
How we can't serve two masters at a time.
It opened a lot of windows in my mind and better understanding about some of the parables Jesus taught the people.
I would read this again and other books by W. Reid Litchfield in the future.
I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishing and in return agreed to give honest review of Enslaved to Save and be part of it's blog tour.
