Based on the story (see Acts 27-28) of the Apostle Paul's near catastrophic shipwreck, this is a call to individuals to "shake off" problems and disasters in life and move forward to new health and wholeness. To everyone on the ship with the Apostle Paul, it looked like a certain disaster. But as Paul predicted, everyone did survive--even though they made it to safety only by grasping "broken pieces of wood." In his unique way, Rodriguez compellingly explains that "God makes wonderful things in our life come from our broken pieces. Because of Christ in our life, we have the power to shake off fear, rejection, and failure--just like Paul later shook off the viper that should have killed him."
Like a spiritual road map from another pilgrim on the same path, Shake Free provides the fuel, inspiration, tools and encouragement you need to overcome the inevitable obstacles to growing in your faith. Samuel Rodriguez reiterates the solid truth that God’s Word is the best compass, “a lamp for my feet, a light on my path,” as the Psalmist said (119:105)
