Pastor John Lindell Focuses on God’s Grace Freely Given in his Debut Book, ‘Soul Set Free’

New Title to Release from Charisma House June 4

ORLANDO, Fla., April 2, 2019 – Respected James River Church Pastor John Lindell makes his publishing debut this June with “Soul Set Free: Why Grace is More Liberating than You Believe.” This beloved and longtime preacher and Bible teacher was inspired to write the book after coming to a deeper understanding of the complete and total freedom that God’s grace imparts to every believer no matter what they have done or how they have failed. This book is set to release from Charisma House on June 4, 2019 ($22.99, ISBN-13: 978-1629996172).


In “Soul Set Free,” Lindell explains how, even after accepting God’s salvation, we often feel the need to earn what he freely offered, through our own human merit. And consequently, we can find ourselves living in a constant state of self-focus, striving to be good enough.  “We are better acquainted with our own brokenness than we are with God’s goodness,” he writes.


Lindell’s book will empower readers to experience the freedom found in knowing just how deeply our Heavenly Father is committed to loving them and setting them free from guilt and shame. To know and  understand that the ocean of his grace is deeper and wider and more powerful than they could ever imagine.

As a pastor for over 30 years and the leader of one of America’s largest churches, according to Outreach magazine, Lindell openly shares his own personal journey of discovery and quest to find freedom for his soul. When he came to see the full revelation of God’s grace and commitment to provide soul-freedom to every believer, it changed his life forever.

In “Soul Set Free,” Lindell invites every reader to experience this life-changing message found in the Book of Romans, helping them to grasp the fullness and freedom offered through God’s extravagant gift of grace. It is a journey that will lead to a life of joy, blessing and freedom for your soul.
