Captive Set Free: How to Find Freedom Through Forgiving

A powerful and beautiful work. If there is another book as transformational as this one I have never come across it.” — Cathy Sakiyama, Therapist (PACCP), Certified Professional Counselor.

If ever there was a time when every single person on this planet needed to forgive someone, that time is now. Doctors and nurses, the elderly and sick, anti-vaxxers, church congregants, pastors, parents, employers, Ukrainians, Russians, politicians, protestors–the list goes on. Captive Set Free: How to Find Freedom Through Forgiving (Green Sap Publications; Trade Paperback Original; $17.99; on sale October 18, 2022) provides the tools to jettison the baggage of bitterness, and challenges readers to step into the truest freedom they will ever experience: a freedom of the heart.

With stories, chapter reflections, and somatic exercises, Limmer draws the reader into an emotional environment that feels inexplicably safe, but also spiritually challenging and exciting. In Captive Set Free, readers learn how to cut through the overwhelm of tackling forgiveness with simple, tried-and-tested tips and tricks, real-life examples, and opportunities for application. Captive Set Free explains how forgiveness fits into Christians’ spiritual DNA, examines mindsets that make forgiving easier or harder, and shows how to:

• take concrete steps to forgive;

• be sure forgiveness has taken hold; and

• guard one’s spirit from bitterness, both now and in the future.

These principles can be applied in any situation, in any context. As Limmer states, “The pain will not last forever. But the things we learn in this place—the ways we grow—those may very well last, if we let them.” With that, she invites those tired of being imprisoned by pain and toxicity to step into the free and abundant life Jesus has provided for them.
