Journey to Freedom Book 1 - Building on the Rock

Personal Transformation One Day at a Time

Peter Horrobin

ISBN: 9781852407421 [272 pages]

Good foundations are critical for both buildings and our Christian lives. Many Christians have spent little time ensuring that their lives are truly built on the rock of truth. So, this first volume in the series establishes a solid foundation on which to build a fulfilling and purposeful Christian life. It also prepares the ground for all the dynamic teaching that follows in subsequent volumes.

About The Author

About The Author

Peter Horrobin is the Founder and International Director of Ellel Ministries. Ellel Ministries International was first established in 1986 as a ministry of healing in the north-west of England. The work is now (in 2016) established in over thirty different countries and students who have trained with Ellel Ministries are working in every continent and in well over forty different countries.

Peter was born in 1943 in Bolton, Lancashire, and was later brought up in Blackburn, also in the north of England. His parents gave him a firm Christian foundation for life with a strong evangelical emphasis. His early grounding in the scriptures was to equip him for future ministry.

After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in Chemistry, he spent a number of years in College and University lecturing, before leaving the academic environment for the world of business where he founded a series of successful publishing and bookselling companies.

In his twenties he started to restore a vintage sports car (an Alvis Speed 20), but discovered that its chassis was bent. As he looked at the broken vehicle, wondering if it could ever be repaired, he sensed God asking him a question, “You could restore this broken car, but I can restore broken lives. Which is more important?” It was obvious that broken lives were more important than broken cars and so the beginnings of a vision for restoring people was birthed in his heart.

A few years later, he was asked to try and help a person who had been sexually abused. Through this experience God opened up to him the vision for the healing ministry. He prayed daily into this vision until, in 1986, God brought it into being at Ellel Grange, a country house just outside the City of Lancaster. Many Christian leaders affirmed the vision and gave it their support.

Since then a hallmark of Peter's ministry has been his willingness
to step out in faith and see God move to fulfil His promises, often
in remarkable ways.

Under Peter's leadership, with his wife Fiona, the world-wide teaching and ministry team has seen God move dramatically in many people’s lives to bring salvation, hope, healing and deliverance. Together they teach and minister on many different aspects of healing and discipleship.

The work is a faith ministry, depending totally on donations and income from training courses for maintaining and extending the work.

Outside of Ellel Ministries, Peter was the originator and one of the compilers of the amazingly successful and popular Mission Praise, now in its 30th Anniversary Edition. It was originally compiled for Billy Graham’s Mission England in 1984.

He is also an enthusiast for fishing and classic cars. His Complete Catalogue of British Cars, which was first published in 1975, has long been a standard reference work on the history and technical specification of every model of every make of British car manufactured between 1895 and 1975! During his years in academic life he also wrote and edited books of specialist technical interest about different aspects of building science and technology.

Peter wrote the teaching contained within the online training programme Ellel 365. This is about to be relaunched, both on-line and in book form, as Journey to Freedom. This 365-part programme provides daily input to those seeking healing, training and an understanding of what it means to be a follower and disciple of Jesus. Many have testified to the life-transforming blessing it has brought to their lives.

Book Review

Book Review

“If you are serious about wanting to experience the deep truths of God in your life, then this is possibly the most relevant and pertinent tool of ministry I have discovered. It is insightful, challenging, and informative. I heartily endorse this tool of transformation. And now I challenge you to read it and prepare for change!”
Alistair P. Petrie Executive Director – Partnership Ministries

“It is an inexpressible relief and joy to discover daily teaching from the Word of God which embraces the breadth of Christian teaching, and whose depth, by the convicting and instructing power of the Holy Spirit, reaches the nooks and crannies of the reader’s heart. This comprehensive teaching about the ways, works and words of the living God, always invites us deeper into intimacy with Him. It is personal and practical, pastoral and prophetic, encouraging and educating, appealing and revealing. It is Christ-centred, Holy Spirit empowered and inspired. I love it! I need it! I’m going to use it! So should you!”
Stuart McAlpine Pastor, Christ Our Shepherd Church, Capitol Hill, Washington D.C.

“The church is starving through lack of teaching that connects us to Christ and builds our foundation in Him. This is why I am so thrilled with Journey to Freedom. It is a marvellous discipleship tool that can inspire you in your walk with God and help you overcome every personal struggle. I hope you can make this part of your daily devotions. It is strong meat that boosts your spiritual diet!”
J. Lee Grady Director, The Mordecai Project and former Editor, Charisma Magazine

“Down-to-earth lessons in the reality of our lives, with desperately needed spiritual answers. They teach us how to apply the blood, cross and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ to transform us from weakness to strength, incapacity to capability, misery to blessedness.”
John Sandford Co-Founder of Elijah House Ministries

“Journey to Freedom presents an amazing array of information that is at once biblical, practical and comprehensive. Discipleship is generally a lost art in the church today. So, to find a guide like this, covering the simplest truths of the faith to the deepest and most profound is like discovering buried treasure – simply outstanding!”
David Kyle Foster Director, Mastering Life Ministries, Franklin, TN and Producer of Pure Passion TV Channel

“What an incredible opportunity for the body of Christ to help people grow into strong, mature Christians. Simple, understandable and yet profound teaching that anyone interested in finding fullness in the Lord can easily access. The materials are presented in a practical way with opportunity for personal application. An incredible opportunity to learn the ways of the Lord.”
Ruth Ruibal President, Julio C. Ruibal Ministries, Colombia

“Consecutive, practical Bible teaching in a straightforward and understandable way – pastoral in content and personal in application. It is designed to engage us where it finds us but not to leave us as we are. It will stimulate the mind; stir the emotions; strengthen the will; and nourish the spirit. My concern is not just to commend it to you, but to plead with you to take a look for yourself with a view to making a new discipleship commitment to our Lord Jesus.”
Rev. Jim Graham Former Pastor of Gold Hill Baptist Church and Director of External Ministries.

“As I read through the teachings, I was drawn into the spiritual journey toward wholeness that is offered by Journey to Freedom. Peter Horrobin’s insights into God’s purpose in creating each of us are powerful and he is anointed with God’s desire to call us to lives that are healed of sin and its consequences. I was reminded of the scripture ‘And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect’ (Romans 12:2).”
Rev. Peter Tsukahira Co-Founder and Director, Or Ha Carmel Ministry Centre, Haifa, Israel

Beloved childReview by Lornie Caplan

I had absorbed what it had taught about how God loves me exactly as I am, how He wanted me to have been loved as a child and how He is able and willing to heal all my wounds and take away all my baggage so that I can come to Him in confidence of being cherished as His beloved child.

Amazing!Review by Judy Stone

I have new insights every day, especially about my viewpoint of God coloured by my parents. I realized today that the message I got from them was always, “Not interested in you—no time for you.” To grasp that God IS interested and always there has changed my life! I have been praying without ceasing for a long time, but WOW! This is amazing!

FantasticReview by V O’Leary

Journey to Freedom is fantastic and seems tailor-made for the many who seek to be disciples of our Lord Jesus. Naturally Gods Spirit is so infused into the message, that we students from time to time are confronted, challenged and inspired to empty ourselves of that which stands in the way of a more intimate relationship with our Lord Jesus.

Like water on dry soilReview by Liz

I am one of the people who is very appreciative of "Journey to Freedom" being in paper form. My technical equipment was not able to run Ellel 365 fully, and I have been eagerly awaiting the book form. I have currently completed Books 1 & 2, and have found them to be like 'water on dry soil' - satisfying some kind of 'thirst' in my soul. I can also feel my crushed spirit getting stronger.
I am looking forward to doing the next, and following, books.
THANK YOU for writing them.

Extremely blessedReview by J Kleynans

I ordered Strands of Destiny and was so absorbed that I asked my wife to please order the Journey to Freedom series, I have received Books 1 to 3 and am currently through a third of Book 2 , God, Me and the Enemy. I will as funds permit order all the books through to 8 as they have become very much part of my daily reading. What I have discovered in reading your words, has given me such a different mental approach to the difficulties of being a True Christian, and for this, I now feel so extremely blessed. Putting on the armour of God now makes more sense, and as I progress through the series, my love of learning more about Jesus and our Heavenly Father is very real.”
