A Life Set Free was carried in my heart for years before I finally had the courage to write it. It was written under a mosquito net in China. The final editing took place at a guest house in Israel. It is filled with stories from God sparing my life to leading me on incredible adventures as an ambassador with “The Department of Eternal Affairs” to so many cool places ~ Haiti, a jungle village in Belize, the Ghetto in NYC, behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and Romania, Israel, China, Thailand, Mexico, Canada, Africa, and Greece. It is a story of God’s love and faithfulness.
If you like Christian nonfiction stories depicting the lives of people who have overcome significant challenges, I highly recommend that you check out A Life Set Free by Rena Groot.
I enjoyed Rena’s conversational tone. The vulnerability and authenticity came through in her writing style. Having written a book based on personal struggles, I know it was not an easy story for Rena to share with the world. It takes courage and strength and, most importantly, God’s divine intervention and His perfect timing to do so. Rena was obedient and shared her testimony, as we are called to do. It was evident that those trials led to a life of peace in God.
We live in a fallen world, and people can do horrible things, but through Rena’s book, I was again reminded that despite the bad in the world, God is good, He loves us, and He is still in control.
Overall, I found the book to be a heartfelt and authentic read. I give A Life Set Free 5 out of 5 stars.
Note: I reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, which I received through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write a positive review or be compensated for sharing my thoughts.
