Something in me concluded that no man could go through such a prolonged ordeal and emerge with a godly spirit…that is, until I met Gene McGuire! You will read his work with continued exclamation of ‘unbelievable,’ ‘how could he?’ and ‘I don’t believe it'.
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!
The Bible says, ‘For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ Unshackled reveals God’s handiwork in the life of Gene McGuire.
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.
Gene’s truly Unshackled life inspires me. I will be giving his book to the men I work with and those I write to. I know it will reach them on a level that I can’t and for that I am truly grateful!
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.
