Story Synopsis

   At a Syrian market two Christian women are sold as slaves. One of the slaves ends up in Rome where Bishop Gregory is teaching his new doctrine of “purgatory” and the need for Christians to finish paying for their own sins. The other slave travels with her new master, Mohammed, back to Arabia, where Mohammed eventually declares himself to be the prophet of God. In Rome and Arabia, the two women and countless others fall into the bondage of man-made religions—will they learn at last to find true freedom in the Lord Jesus Christ alone?

Story Setting:  Rome and Arabia in 594 - 632 A.D.

   "From Bondage to Freedom is a fascinating work of historical fiction...Highly recommended!"  ~  Heather Jackowitz, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine  Read the full review

   "...even though she's not an avid reader, [my 12 year old daughter] loved (and understood) From Bondage to Freedom! Score one for mom and two for Salem Ridge Press!"  ~  Lynnae M., mother of 2

   "I truly enjoyed this book! As most books from this time period, it was so well written. The language is rich and picturesque. The world of the characters is impacted by important characters directly from history. The story is heartwarming and thought provoking. A wonderful treasure for our bookshelf!"  ~  Tara, homeschool mom from Indiana

   "The Historical Notes were very helpful to me in understanding many aspects of the story. Sadly, I am not particularly well-versed in early Church history so I found the Historical Notes invaluable to aid my understanding. I think the Historical Notes would be very helpful for a young person learning about early Church history. Difficult or unfamiliar words were defined at the bottom of each page. I found this immensely helpful to my understanding of the book as I'm sure any young person would. I think this book would be an excellent addition to a young person's study of Early Church History. The dramatization of the rise of the Islamic religion and the doctrine of purgatory would add emotion and depth to a historical study of these same events."  ~  Samantha K., To Be Busy At Home blog
