Overview
Christians do not trust freedom. As author Steve Brown explains in this brave new book, they prefer the security of rules and self-imposed boundaries, which they tend to inflict on other Christians. Brown asserts that real freedom means the freedom to be wrong as well as right. Christianity often calls us to live beyond the boundaries, bolstered by the assurance that we cannot fall beyond God's love. Freedom is dangerous, but the alternative is worse -- boxing ourselves up where we cannot celebrate our unique gifts and express our joy in Christ. Each of the book's eleven chapters explores a common pharisaic, freedom-stifling tendency, then opens the door to the fresh air of a remedial liberty. A reader's delight, A Scandalous Freedom sometimes shocks with challenges to prevailing wisdom, but it follows up with compelling validations of our need to celebrate real, unstinted freedom in Christ.

Community Description
God has set us free - and at great cost - but many Christians live in self-imposed bondage. Rather than delighting in God's lavish grace, they are fearful of igniting his displeasure. As author Steve Brown explains in this brave, new book, too many Christians don't trust freedom - for themselves or others. They prefer the security of man-made regulations to the adventure of freedom.

The implications of freedom, Brown asserts, can sometimes be dangerous, but the alternative is deadly: a life without joy and void of celebration of our unique gifts in Christ. Each riveting chapter explores a common freedom-stifling tendency, then opens the door to the fresh air or remedial liberty. Dare to explore the joys of biblical freedom. Open the pages of this book and begin a journey that will set you free - really and truly and completely free.

New Perspective  Jun 17, 2008
This book has helped me gain a new perspective on Christian life and freedom. Thanks, Steve!
 
Wonderful book.  May 21, 2008
This is absolutely a wonderful book. As Christians, we have such a tendency to inch back toward legalism and the law in a pitiful attempt to be loved and accepted by our savior. This is a great reminder that such efforts don't promote sanctification or bring glory to God or his Gospel. With Christ we truly are free. I don't know why I keep needing to be reminded of this, but I've never read a book that more thoroughly and joyfully provides such a reminder. I plan to re-read this book, maybe more than once.
 
Must Read!!!  Feb 8, 2008
Must read for those who feel weighed down by the do's and don'ts of being a Christian. "He who the son sets free, will be free indeed."

You will love this book!  Aug 21, 2007
Steve Brown is quite an amazing author of a great deal of publications. He is also a pastor who teaches on radio broadcasts (which I listen to found at his website) and a Bible teacher at a reformed seminary.

What makes this book so unique and such a worthwhile read for every Christian is really the depth of Steve's understanding of what the Bible actually teaches. I believe the main point of this book is that if you are a Christian, God is no longer angry with you. It's a fundamental truth of Christianity that is too good to be true for many Christians. But it is true, and Steve will help you to see this truth as it is presented in the Bible.

What else is really great about this pastor is the sharp wit and a complete honesty that is oftentimes surprising that's used to convey each and every message given whether on a broadcast, in an article, or in a book, etc.

Steve Brown has helped many people break free from the chains of legalistic religion, which instead of honoring God, honors man's attempts to please God. Legalism is often in the form of a blind religion and is a breeding ground for false teaching and false teachers who slip in unnoticed, etc. Steve will help you to see clearly that Christianity is all about Jesus, who was resurrected from this earth so that our heart and minds would be on "things above, not on earthly things" (Colossians 3:2).

"A Scandalous Freedom" is just such an amazing read, chock full of wisdom and insight from a masterful teacher of the Bible! Here is just one example of the many of Steve's insights and his style of presentation (which is often very humorous): "The only people who get better are people who know that, if they never get better, God will love them anyway. The corollary to that principle is this: God will not only love you if you don't get better; he will teach you that getting better isn't the issue. His love is the issue. Out of the love, kindness, and presence of God, you will find yourself getting better" (p. 69). So if you want the honest truth from a teacher who has been gifted by God, then you ought to read this book and can also visit his website for the radio broadcast series.
