Item Description...
Overview
"Be men and women of freedom! But remember: Human freedom is a freedom wounded by sin. It is a freedom which itself needs to be set free. Christ is its liberator." - John Paul II, from the introduction No matter where you are on your journey of faith, God wants you to be freer. "There is always more freedom, more grace, more forgiveness, more mercy, more God," Father Dave Pivonka says. But can you be freer than you already are? Maybe you're in a position to do whatever you want, whenever you want, the common definition of freedom. Maybe you've tried to free yourself from bad habits, had no luck and decided to accept the status quo. Maybe you want greater freedom but can't quite get there. Maybe you feel like God has given up on you and freedom is the least of your concerns. This book not only defines the true nature of freedom, it also gives you the practical tools you need to achieve the conversion, healing and restoration that God has for you.

Publishers Description
Foreword by Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, O.P.
"Be men and women of freedom But remember: Human freedom is a freedom wounded by sin. It is a freedom which itself needs to be set free. Christ is its liberator."
--John Paul II, from the Introduction
No matter where you are on your journey of faith, God wants you to be freer. "There is always more freedom, more grace, more forgiveness, more mercy, more God," Father Dave Pivonka says.
But can you be freer than you already are? Maybe you're in a position to do whatever you want, whenever you want, the common definition of freedom. Maybe you've tried to free yourself from bad habits, had no luck and decided to accept the status quo. Maybe you want greater freedom but can't quite get there. Maybe you feel like God has given up on you and freedom is the least of your concerns.
"Spiritual Freedom" not only defines the true nature of freedom, it also gives you the practical tools you need to achieve the conversion, healing and restoration that God has for you. Through Scripture, teaching, stories, humor and questions for reflection, Father Pivonka will inspire you to embrace the truth of who you really are, a son or daughter of a God who made you in freedom, for freedom.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Janet Johnson  Sep 19, 2008
Father Dave gives some pratical ideas to help deepen your faith. I have taken the time to check out the scriptures and spent time in prayer and the spiritual freedom does come. I also love the examples Father Dave gives of real life situations. While I was reading this book I also was reading THE SHACK, and these two books created a powerful journey. Father Dave, I'm waiting for your next book. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, read this book because it will heal and inspire you!
 
This was recommended by a personal friend of Father Pivonka's  Sep 7, 2008
I'm sure that I was supposed to take more time in reading, but I couldn't stop! I did the reading and reflecting at the end of each chapter and found it to be so edifying that I just couldn't put it down. There are many folded corners, underlinings and notes that I will revisit in the future. Spiritual Freedom is a book that I will give as a gift to friends which is something I like to do that when I come across a great read.
 
To know God's mercy  Aug 26, 2008
Father Pivonka, a popular conference leader, assures us that God desires freedom for everyone, and we can expect God to free, heal, and restore us. He also reminds us that achieving freedom "is always going to require effort from you." To guide our efforts, he recommends reflecting on the message in Spiritual Freedom in combination with periods of prayer and quiet. Each chapter closes with a three-part "Journey to God's heart." The first part suggests we "listen" to what God is saying directly to us in a given passage from Scripture. The second presents reflection questions. The third provides an opportunity to put into words the revelations we are experiencing.

The narrative contains numerous examples from Pivonka's ministry to youth and his personal life. His earliest story involves a lie he told his mother when he was in high school. No surprise, his mother "knew" and confronted him, expressing serious disappointment rather than applying punishment. "I broke my mom's heart and she, in turn, taught me about mercy," he writes. When we sin, he explains, we break the heart of our Father, choosing our own path over his way. God wants us to see our sinfulness not so that we can feel guilty, but so that we can know his mercy.

Another memorable image Pivonka shares is that of the bloodied Jesus carrying his cross through the streets of Jerusalem, not stopping even when the priest draws near to confess his sins. In the vignette, Jesus continues walking as Pivonka adds more and more information, finally asking Jesus why he won't stop. "Because I love you," Jesus says. "And he kept on walking to his death because he loved me," Pivonka writes. Sin is a breach of our relationship with Christ who wishes for us only happiness. "My sin is the eternal cause of Christ's suffering."
 
TRULY AN AWAKENING  Aug 21, 2008
Spiritual Freedom, God's Life-Changing Gift is both a unique and challenging book. Fr. Dave Pivonka guides the reader through personal stories and humor, to look introspectively at our own lives. We all have struggles, suffering and a lot of bondage that keeps us away from freedom, a gift that God so earnestly wants us to have. This book has brought about an awakening in me. I do feel free from the many things that have held me captive. I have read this book 3 times and each time I find something more amazing. This book is wonderful and insightful.
 
Inspiring and life changing  Aug 9, 2008
This book is incredible. It's easy to read and will have a profound impact on your life. God desires us to be free... what great news! This book really helped me find the freedom I was created for. I can't imagine someone reading this book and not being transformed by it.
