Story Behind the Book
"In October 2002, a sniper started killing people at random in the area where I live. The community almost ground to a standstill, with people refusing to leave their homes, drive the streets, or send their children to school until the killer was found. What disturbed me most was the reaction of many of my fellow Christiansone of fear just like their unsaved neighbors. I felt we were passing up a perfect opportunity to model the peace that passes all understanding to a very needy audience. Since then I have come to realize that the Bible, almost in its entirety, tells us over and over again that we should not be afraid. A life lived trusting God is a fearless, confident life that will draw others to it."
From the Trade Paperback edition.
In Bulletproof by Chuck Holton, readers are introduced to how God brought people through almost unbelievable circumstances. Upon this foundation the author begins to build the truths and insight behind these miraculous events.
One of the most basic, but frequently forgotten and misunderstood, principles of faith is the value of the love of God. Love, as Holton explains, is the antidote to many of the emotions present in stressful or even life-threatening events. One of the events described, which took place in a combat zone, richly and profoundly provides us with real, powerful, and peaceful outcomes: when a believer surrenders to God in love, and allows His peace to strengthen his faith.
The author then progresses to reveal more about the true nature of our relationship with God and the necessary steps we need to follow that enable us to receive the blessing and peace God has for each of us. I was touched on many levels by the accounts and principles within the pages of this book. It is a profound, challenging, yet compelling work. -- Dr. Wesley Rose, Christian Book Previews.com
