More about Set Free

In Set Free, American Bible Society President and CEO Roy Peterson shares how God has faithfully walked by his side through every circumstance—from the depths of a Mexican prison to the frontlines of Christian ministry. Like the story of Joseph in the Bible, Peterson’s story is full of plot twists that only God would write, heartbreak that only God could heal, and obstacles that only God could overcome.

At the heart of Peterson’s adventure is a book that turned his life upside down: the Bible. His heart for God’s Word will stir your imagination, and his story of redemptive freedom through Christ will inspire you to ask: How might God use me?

Roy Peterson has served as President and CEO of American Bible Society since February 2014.
