About the Book


Is there something in your life that’s keeping you down? Something you’re struggling with that you can’t seem to break free from, no matter how many times you’ve tried?

In 2002, Pastor Robert Morris transformed the act of giving in his bestseller The Blessed Life, and now he does the same for spiritual freedom in his new book, Truly Free.

The Bible is clear that some problems are actually just problems, but there are other trials you go through that are the work of the enemy in your life. So how can you tell the difference between evil and worldly issues?

Truly Free will show you the warning signs that your life may be opened to evil and how you can overcome the enemy and find freedom. Using clear, biblically based teaching, Robert Morris invites you to join him on a journey to true freedom. You’ll gain insight into your personal struggles as he openly shares how God helped him find freedom from chronic illness, lust, temptation, and insecurity.

If you’ve ever wondered, Why do I keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again? Why can’t I change? Take heart—there is a way out! With relevant scriptures, prayers, and questions for contemplation or group discussion, this book explains how you can find lasting freedom and live truly free.

  • Truly Free  points the way to a literal unshackling from mental torment, self destructive habits, unperceived hindrances of pride, unforgiveness, and secret sins—opening the doorway God’s Word provides for fullness of liberty, in mind, soul, thoughts, habits, and emotions. Here is a Christ-centered, thoroughly Word-based case for, and a God-given pathway into, freedom. Truly Free  is a patient unfolding of biblical studies that reveal the Savior’s kingdom’s power over all that is demonic, deceiving, or destructive of human wholeness.”

    Chancellor, The King’s University; and founding pastor, The Church On The Way

That’s why Pastor Robert’s new book, Truly Free, is a must-read for anyone who is tired of feeling trapped in a destructive cycle. Pastor Robert’s honesty is disarming; his suggestions are practicable; but most importantly, his spiritual insights are life transforming. I hope you will read this book and become truly free.

  • “No successful person can walk through life without confronting the issues that hold him or her back.

    —John C. Maxwell

  • “I am so thankful for the honesty and boldness of Robert Morris in his book Truly Free. Sharing his own story and practical advice for how he broke free from his personal battles is inspiring. Anyone who has ever struggled with overcoming the chains of sin in his or her life should absolutely read this book!”

  • “Right in the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus teaches us to pray: ‘Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.’ In His parable of the sower, He pictures Satan coming quickly to snatch away  the good seed. Clearly, we’re in a battle, folks—in our minds and emotions as well as for our eternal spirits—and the enemy is not just our flesh but the devil himself. Robert Morris reveals the nature of the struggle we all face and the sure ways to win. Every believer needs to read this book.”

    —Pat Boone
    Christian activist and entertainer

  • Spiritual warfare is a messy business. The Bible describes a raging battle going on around us that we can’t see, but that doesn’t mean we have to be afraid of it. In my reading of Scripture, I think it basically boils down to this: great big Jesus, little bitty demons. I’ve read the back of the Book, and guess what? We win! In Truly Free, Pastor Robert Morris helps you get past the fear—and into the freedom.
