Nonfiction Review: Pathway to Freedom

In "Pathway to Freedom," Alistair Begg begins with a clear and eye-opening explanation of the purpose of God's law, its functions, and its application in our new lives with Christ. He then spends each chapter looking at one of the Ten Commandments. While Begg sometimes left me with more questions than answers (particularly his chapter on the Sabbath), the author also forced me to reconsider the commandments. I have no problem recognizing my inadequacy and sin, but here I found reason to take the simplest commandment such as "honor your father and mother" more seriously. Begg discusses real-life questions and applications with plenty of Scriptural support. He divides each chapter into easy-to-read sections, but Begg's straightforward and candid points also contain enough gems to warrant a second read.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
