“When Gene speaks to our employees about his time in prison a dramatic hush falls over the room. His testimony revealed in this book shows God’s hand, freeing him from a life sentence with no chance of freedom. His powerful story compels others to recognize the tragedy in their own lives and permits them to move beyond their own past.”

“I’m pleased to recommend Unshackled to you. Gene’s is a powerful testimony of how our God’s love pursues, how His mercy heals, and how His grace translates ruins to redemption. It’s the story of a man set free! And he whom the Son sets free … is free indeed!”

Greg Laurie, PastorHarvest Christian Fellowship, Evangelist, Harvest Crusades

"Perhaps nobody understands or appreciates freedom as much as Gene McGuire—not because he was locked up for almost 35 years, but because he experienced the freedom that only Christ can bring, even while still behind bars. Now that he has been released from prison, he is able to share the truths that enable all of us to experience greater emotional and spiritual freedom."

James Robison, FounderLIFE Outreach International

“Riveting, captivating and compelling—the authentic life of Gene McGuire. Unshackled is far more than just the heart-wrenching story of a man who served 35 years in prison for another man’s crime. It is a testimony of God’s grace coupled with discipleship 101 to 401. Read it and be impacted.”
