It seems like a case involving conflicting religious beliefs is in the news every week. Views on what our beliefs can allow us to do or refuse to do abound. What is the truth on all of this? In Free to Believe, Luke Goodrich outlines where the law has jurisdiction, even if it has overstepped in the past, and what we should be expecting from religious liberty.
My main reason for wanting to read this book was to see what I may face business-wise of religious liberty lawsuits make it to my area. However, I realized that this topic has broader effects that just that. Many Christians I know are aware of cases, but either don’t know what to think about what is happening or what they don’t know what they can do about it. After reading this book, I saw that I don’t need to think sitting on the sidelines will keep me safe. Religious liberty affects all people, regardless of what belief system they follow.
The book is easy to read, and written so that a wide range of readers will be able to understand it. The more complex terms and situations are broken down into plain language, so you won’t need any law training to see what they mean. It does more than just say what is happening, the book tells you what you need to know as the fight for religious liberty moves on and why you should care about it.
I received a free copy of Free to Believe from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
