About The Book:
Many things can hold us captive. Addictions. Compulsions. Self-hatred. Dark fantasies. Bitterness. The list goes on. Often, we try to escape these captors in our own strength, but with little or no success. Whatever success we have is fleeting.
Then one day, we realize we cannot win in our own strength. We cry out for help. God answers that cry and amazing things begin to happen.
“From Captive to Conqueror” explores 2 Samuel 22, where we see a vivid picture of one who is held captive by something far too strong to escape. This powerful passage shows how God moves on behalf of that captive who finally cries out for help. God acts. He frees, restores, trains, and equips that captive to be a conqueror.
