New Book Shares Message of Spiritual Freedom to Readers

Offers hope that God never gives up on his children


MAITLAND, FL—Bob Schummer’s new book The Advocate ($21.49, paperback, 9781498499682; $9.99, eBook, 9781498499699) shares with readers that God never gives up on His children. His love is eternal, and he wants all His children to know Him, trust Him, and walk in the freedom of His love that comes only through a loving, trusting relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. For those who may be struggling in that relationship, freedom can never be obtained by you, it can only be obtained for you---but for this, you will need an advocate. Jesus cares. This is not simply another book on spiritual warfare. While its subject matter may be the same as many others, its goal is somewhat different. It is not the intention of this book to give you answers---it is designed to help you find the answers you seek.


Schummer says, “There are many hurting people in our world, and God is building His church with the goal and mandate for His children to reach out to a hurting and lost world with the love of Jesus Christ. For those who follow Jesus, they are His hands and feet here on planet earth. However, many in the church are wounded and hurting also. We in the church need to come to their aid. God needs whole and healthy warriors whose story He has redeemed in order to reach out to the lost and hurting in a way that people can relate to.”


A former drunken reprobate, redeemed by the love and grace of God, eye-witness to His power in many tangible ways, still, Bob Schummer doubted, and wandered. As a result---eventually, he found himself locked away and tortured in a spiritual prison for many years. But God, who is rich in mercy, rescued him. In The Advocate he has attempted to lay out the same truths, with the same grace that God used to set him free.
