Bestselling author and pastor Dr. John MacArthur reveals one crucial word that revolutionizes what it means to follow Jesus. Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to him as their king. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration—that God is their master and that they belong to him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as his slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for his own possession. But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere. That’s because it has been lost in translation. In this gripping book, Dr. John MacArthur uses deep Bible teaching and historical evaluation to expertly uncover the one forgotten word that restores the Bible’s definition of true Christian freedom.

Quotes & Awards

  • “John MacArthur expertly and lucidly explains that Jesus frees us from bondage into a royal slavery that we might be his possession. Those who would be his children must, paradoxically, be willing to be his slaves.”

    Dr. R. C. Sproul, founder and chair of Ligonier Ministries

  • “A powerful exposition of scripture, a convincing corrective to shallow Christianity, a masterful work of pastoral encouragement…a devotional classic.”

    Dr. R. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

  • “Dr. John MacArthur’s teaching on slavery resonates in the deepest recesses of my inner-man. As an African American pastor, I have been there. That is why the thought of someone writing about slavery as being a godsend was the most ludicrous, unconscionable thing that I could have ever imagined…until I read this book. Now I see that becoming a slave is a biblical command, completely redefining the idea of freedom in Christ.”

    Reverend Dr. Dallas H. Wilson Jr., vicar of St. John’s Episcopal Chapel, Charleston, SC

    " The book was ok but I think it would be really good for a Bible study....lots of notation...didn't really enjoy it as cover to cover book. "

    " Truly an insightful text, and very worthwhile for those interested in Biblical studies. I think this is the best book I have read by MacArthur. Humbling and helpful. "

    " This book has a fairly interesting premise-- comparing the life of a slave to how our relationship is with Christ. Pretty thought provoking. We'll be discussing it in our small group. "
