About the Book

If truth is suppressed, can liberty survive?

The Scripture is fairly clear: “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

An angry teenager, A.J. Franklin, battles doubt and confusion, trying to reconnect with his secure childhood. His sister and others try to help him overcome past hurts, at times to no avail.

“Oh, right, forgiveness! Sure, just like that! Forget it ever happened!”

“No, A.J., I didn’t say forget!”

Searching for the essence of liberty while sifting through societal erosion, A.J. wrestles with the tenets of bondage and liberty. Voices, past and present, tug at his innermost being. Only when he is completely yielded is he able to discern between the two, allowing him to choose the one that sweeps him toward his date with destiny.
