Do you want to know God and really believe Him? Do you want to find satisfaction in God, experience His peace, and enjoy His presence? Do you want to make the freedom Christ promised a reality in your daily life? In Breaking Free, Beth Moore embarks on a study of selected passages from the book of Isaiah, drawing several parallels between the captive Israelites and today's Christians, in order to show how to make freedom in Christ a daily reality. Moore teaches to remove obstacles that hinder freedom by identifying spiritual strongholds in their lives and overcoming them through the truth of God's Word--truth that will set us free.
- Thorough Guide To Breaking Free
Breaking Free by Beth Moore is an in depth study on why Christians are still captive that things that had them back and more importantly how to break free of those restrictions and live the life that God has called them to live.
The content of the book is very thorough and thought provoking as Beth shares from her own experiences about being bound up and how she broke free of those chains. The important message of the book in terms of breaking free is trusting in God and letting the Holy Spirit work through the life of the believer to bring forth breakthrough.
The narration seems fine but it would have been nice to have Beth read the book herself as she would have been able to add more emphasis to it and reinforce the important messages with bolder tone.
This is an important book because Christians of all ages, walks of life and cultures are likely to be restricted by past sins, events or mistakes at some point in their life, so a source of truth to see breakthough would be greatly desired.

- inadequate narration
My iPhone has excellent voice command. While Siri does not sound as impressive as the fancier text to speech modules once can purchase for the Android, I am floored by how advanced technology has gotten and how well a phone can recite emails and texts to me.
While I believe my phone to sound amazing, it is not the same voice I would want to listen to a story, or audio book, from. I don't know if Susan Denaker is the official Siri voice or not, and I'm pretty sure that she isn't, but her narration of Moore's spiritual book reminds me of electronic dictation. In a monotone reading, Denaker does provide a slight inflection that permits listeners to recognize separate sentences (and their structure) and questions, but not good enough to be convincing. In short, the text is read aloud, not performed or inspired, and to me, does not emulate the author.
Moore excels in the women's inspirational section for Christian living. This book is on par with her other works. The purpose? To help readers get over their pasts, surpass their dreams, and break free in the process. To Moore, it's all about total surrender to G-d, and allowing the Holy Spirit to break free the chains that prevent us from living totally for Him.
Great concept. Great book material. Inadequate narration. While many may find this narration satisfactory, I couldn't get myself to listen past the book's introduction.
