Book Review : You Are Free
I enjoyed the second half of You Are Free : Be Who You Already Are, more than the first half. Rebekah Lyons hardly mentions her family in the early parts of the book and given that she has a special needs child, it struck me as odd, especially as the book has an autobiographical voice. Often the book is like listening to conversations she is having with herself or with God. I have since discovered that she wrote about the early days with her children in her first book, Freefall to Fly, which I haven’t read. In the second half of, You Are Free, Rebekah wrote a bit more about her family, so the thoughts she shared had more context.
The other reason I enjoyed the second half of the book is because the material was more relevant to where I am in my spiritual life and I found many of the chapters helpful. Rebekah’s message throughout the book is that Christ has called us to freedom—free from perfectionism, appearance, busyness, compulsion, and the many other things that would keep us from being all God created us to be.
Overall, the book is well-written, easy to read and has a good message.
