Top 25 : Bishop Anthony J. Freeman's first book "Are You Serious?"

Updated: May 10, 2022

The title “Are you Serious?” was chosen because the author believe that we sometimes take life to seriously. Chronicles of a journey in Faith that is inspiring, edifying and insightful to a person of any age.


Bishop Freeman starts off by saying, if “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get next.” (From the movie Forrest Gump) Some of his chocolates are melted, because his life has not turned out the way that he intended from what he thought it to be.

Life has different challenges, and obstacles that change us. This book is about some of the highs and lows of his personal life. The title “Are you Serious?” was chosen because he believes that sometimes people take life to seriously. We don’t laugh enough at ourselves because we are too busy laughing at others, to take the attention off of ourselves.

As you read each chapter, you will see that his life has not always been easy. He had to endure some of those things because it comes from within, the upbringing of his Grandparents faith helped to sustain him while "the fantastic four" saved his life. Looking back at some of the things he did and has have to ask himself, “are you serious right now?

"No two days are the same. Real faith is not stagnant. People that talk faith do not impress me at all because talk is cheap. When you put your faith in action, is when others will take notice". - Bishop Anthony J. Freeman

If you are looking for a book that is full of Spiritual perfection and obtained goals, this is not that book, you don’t have to read it. He admits his mistakes that he wishes he could go back in time and change, but you know as well as him, we can’t do that.

Bishop Freeman does believe in transparency. He doesn't see how people can help people that are really hurting, unless the titles and gold crosses are put down. People need to hear someone they can relate to.

Writing a book was one of things on Bishop Freeman's bucket list, taking many years to get to but now completed. Finding his inspiration in his morning coffee and time with the Lord.

It is his prayer that you will be inspired, and encouraged as you laugh and maybe cry a little, as you see that it possibly relates to your own personal life.

RTM strongly recommends Are You Serious? to its readership debuting on TOP 25 List ®
