H Bulletproof Faith is filled with useful insights and proven spiritual practices that deflect attacks and enhance and strengthen faith by turning attacks into opportunities for spiritual growt. I was a little leery of buying it because it sounded a little militant if not arrogant but ironically it's way less aggressive than I am It's all about how not to get into fights and how to treat people who disagree with you with gentleness and compassion without letting them think you support their prejudices The faith of the title is a personal self assurance that one has to have in order to suffer the trails of life gracefully The author uotes 2 Timothy 223 25 and James 317 at lot as well as Buffy and Xena It's really really helped me with how I think about interacting with potentially hostile Christians I would highly recommend this book to ueer Christians ueers who regularly deal with Christians and straight Christians who are allies

Bulletproof Faith A Spiritual Survival Guide for Gay and Lesbian ChristiansThis thoughtful A Spiritual eBook #8608 practical guide shows readers a way through the Bulletproof Faith PDF or minefield of condemnation and persecution faced by gay lesbian bisexual and Fait. Bulletproof Faith works best if one approaches it as a surface self help book As a tool for being a Christian who is less tuned in to those who attack you for whatever reason it offers helpful advice and some nice activities that you can do in order to be able to better handle the slings and arrows that others throw at you As a book that will bulletproof the faith of gay people who come from a strong evangelical background it will be found lackingPersonally I found the book mostly helpful and I enjoyed Ms Hodge's honesty in exposing her own warts and issues She has a bad temper and often feels the need to get in the last word Knowing this about herself and being honest about it enables her to be very blunt and constructive with her readers who share the same faults That is a very helpful element of this book She is also very upfront about the fact that this text is not meant to give you scriptural ammunition to fight those who want to condemn homosexuality It does not provide that and with a few exceptions many of her scriptural analysis are not all that insightful But her heart is clearly in the right place and that goes a long way with meI also liked how Hodge occasionally inserts into the text little excerpts that she calls Spiritual Survival Exercises These are meditations prayers and other helpful tools that she has used in her life to help her become closer to God and having tried most of them some work for me some don't Ms Hodge is just trying to jump start your prayerthought life with GodHowever there are also some flaws in the book that leave it and its subject matter vulnerable to criticism It is there as much as I wish it wasn't and this does detract from the work First off she uses some ridiculous examples to make her points She uotes and comes back to often Xena the Warrior Princess to make one of her salient points in the book Besides being a stereotypical choice to use it also reeks of pop culture There are numerous Biblical examples that Hodge could have used to make the same point There are also a few times where her arguments are very weak and not very sound I know this because I am a friendly and supportive audience for her views and even I occasionally rolled my eyes at some of her arguments If I am doing that what will her detractors do I would hate to see the effectiveness of her message lost to such small things but I am afraid for some people that is exactly what will happenIf you are struggling because you are gay and a Christian or you are just struggling with attacks on your faith then Bulletproof Faith is an easy and supportive read that will probably give you some help and solace That is a good thing; just don't expect from it then it can give The ultimate message of this text is love for all God's people and I will never have a lot of problems with a book that does that

I actually really liked this one While other books focus on textproof and stuff of that nature Chellew Hodge spends time on how to see that attacks come from a place of fear and that they're other people's issues not ours which is great advice for any conflict I like her advice on having a relationship vs being Right all either side really wants is validation The pop culture references were cute and for once I actually got most of them The chapter on the Galatians verse was well done She also makes the point that since love does conuer all eventually understanding and enlightenment will win the day so the things people say and do today this lifetime are all heading towards that goal I think that if I were GLBT I'd have gotten even out of the book and all positive stuffOn another note though it was a library book I borrowed someone took it upon themselves to leave propaganda between the pages and to write criticisms in the margins clearly they read the book but did not really take it in and understand it I'm glad I didn't miss the entire message like they did
