The freedom that this book reveals is a state of permanent freedom. It is not the freedom we experience when we recover from some disease, for in that state we always know or expect that some other ailment can afflict us. It is not the freedom from lack that a wonderful new job or large inheritance may bring us, for these also can fail us.
The freedom expressed in this book by Joel S. Goldsmith is a freedom already within us, which is arrived at through the discipline of knowing the truth, the truth about God, man and “the nature of error” and standing firm in these truths. As he says “if we are not abiding in the Word and letting the Word abide in us, all the evils of this world can come near our dwelling place.”
Throughout this book Goldsmith shows us how to find “the liberty of the sons of God” within ourselves. He never says that it will be easy, but he does explain that freedom and fulfillment are the end result.
