Book Description

'The Gospel Cannot Be Chained: The Apostle Paul's Gospel Message Of Endless Love And Grace For The Church' is a fresh new look at the four letters the Apostle Paul wrote from his imprisonment in Rome: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon.

Researched and written by Mick Mooney, author of 'Look! The Finished Work Of Jesus' and 'God's Grace Apart From Law: a biblical commentary of the Apostle Paul's letter to the Romans', this paraphrase is contextually accurate, deeply profound and wonderfully refreshing.

As with all Mooney's writing, it is an easy to read book that brings to the forefront the essence of the Apostle Paul's gospel: that the good news from God is a message of endless love and grace for the church.

'The Gospel Cannot Be Chained' is a paraphrase that holds a great deal of respect for the original Scriptures and succeeds in both remaining true to the original text while also removing the difficult religious expressions and wording. and brings the heart of Paul's message to the forefront with an incredible passion and power.

It is amazing that even in prison Paul still knew he was free; he still knew of a far greater reality that was his in Christ. Paul's letters reveal so much of his heart of love, his joy in God's greatness, and his uncompromising faith in the redemptive work of Jesus. 'The Gospel Cannot Be Chained' is a fresh look at his timeless message of grace.

This paraphrase will reveal the central message of love and grace in a unique and liberating way that will help you tremendously in your own studies of the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Chains August 11, 2011
By Big B
Mick has done an incredible job of expessing a modern understanding of Paul's prison epistles without "religion speak." I found reading them to be refreshing. His paraphase drew me into the mind of Paul, allowing me to grasp his love and passion for the recipents of these letters as well as the source of that love. I can't wait to see what Mick does with Romans (current project).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good News of the Gospel August 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mick Mooney is a messenger of the Good New of the Gospel. Through Jesus' finished work at the cross and his rest in Christ, his book "The Gospel Cannot Be Chained" is a blessing to me. It speaks about Paul's letters to the Church, which was written to us. Mick Mooney has made our Beloved Paul's letter simple and more understanding, as you read the letters it gives you this feeling of closeness, this Oneness with our loving heavenly Father. Paul knowing how much he is loved by Our heavenly Father, shares the Father's heart of love and grace for us, through His Son' overpayment at the cross. As I read, "The Gospel Cannot Be Chained" there are no earthly languages that can express of how touched, how loved, how beautiful I feel knowing how much The Father loves us and how Jesus' finished work at the cross completes everything for us! My Spirit is full of joy and my eyes filled with tears streaming down my face as I read of how much I am truely loved. There is no greater love than the love of Jesus! This book shines the light of God's love and grace as you read Paul's letters full of love.
We are one with Christ,
MaryAnn Pacheco

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing February 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book/translation is amazing...filled with new covenant/finished work language. If you read it as a devotion you are guaranteed to encounter Him. I must say, I was not expecting this to be as good as it was...I was kind of expecting it to me more like The Message version, but it was nothing like it. I can't get enough about the gospel of grace, thankful to have found this. I can't wait for Mick to keep translating the NT like this, so good!

5.0 out of 5 stars I give it "thumbs up!" July 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mick has very carefully given us Paul's message in our own language. As we read the written words, it is very important that we get the message the Holy Spirit is trying to convey to us, and I believe the apostle Paul had a very clear understanding of that message. I believe that as we read Mick's paraphrase, we also can have that understanding. Excellent reading!
