Publisher's Summary

A leading religious freedom attorney, the veteran of several Supreme Court battles, helps people of faith understand religious liberty in our rapidly changing culture - why it matters, how it is threatened, and how to respond with confidence and grace.

Winner of The Christian Book Award

The Gospel Coalition's Best Book of The Year, Public Theology and Current Events

Named One of The Best Books of The Year by World Magazine

Many Americans feel like their religious freedom is under attack. They see the culture changing around them, and they fear that their beliefs will soon be punished as a form of bigotry. Others think these fears are overblown and say Christians should stop complaining about imaginary persecution.

In Free to Believe, leading religious freedom attorney Luke Goodrich challenges both sides of this debate, offering a fresh perspective on the most controversial religious freedom conflicts today. With penetrating insights on gay rights, abortion rights, Islam, and the public square, Goodrich argues that threats to religious freedom are real - but they might not be quite what you think.

As a lawyer at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, Goodrich has won several historic Supreme Court victories for clients such as the Little Sisters of the Poor and Hobby Lobby. Combining frontline experience with faithful attention to Scripture, Goodrich shows why religious freedom matters, how it is threatened, and how to protect it. The result is a groundbreaking audiobook full of clear insight, practical wisdom, and refreshing hope for all people of faith.

Critic Reviews

"Religious freedom is one of the most important civil rights issues of our time, and Luke Goodrich is at the forefront of the battle. If you want to understand religious freedom and how to protect it, you need this book." (Eric Metaxas, number one New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther, and If You Can Keep It)

"Religious liberty is too important to be just another culture war skirmish. If the soul is not free, every other freedom is in jeopardy. We live in a time when religious freedom is rarely discussed without either alarmism or dismissal. Luke Goodrich is one of the nation’s most respected thought leaders in the arena of liberty of conscience. In this book he reframes our context, connecting us with generations past and prognosticating on the challenges of the future. I hope many people, both religious and secular, will read this volume and recommit to a society where all consciences are free to believe, to worship, to serve, and to live." (Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention)

"With the religious freedoms that Americans have long taken for granted now under fierce attack, Luke Goodrich not only sounds an alarm about the challenges ahead but also offers practical guidance on how to confront them. This wise, faith-filled, and eminently readable book should be in the hands of everyone who values religious liberty." (Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard University and author of A World Made New)

Best read I had in years

This is a must have for every Christians library. Full of great legal advice but also daily wisdom on the proper Christian attitudes toward everyday issues. Way more than I expected. Get it, you wont be sorry.

A MUST READ!

Very good narration. The book is very timely and informational. Not boring and stuffy. Finished it feeling thankful for the work of Luke Goodrich, his firm, and his professional and biblical perspective. Highly recommend!
