Publishers Description Would you like to have the confidence, the kind of driving purpose, that shuts out all fear? Do you want your life to be filled with adventure? There are many kinds of soldiers, and the ones that this book is written for don't necessarily wear a uniform. The missions these soldiers undertake have more than just political or historical significance--they are impacting eternity. Bulletproof is a field manual for the Christian soldier. It addresses the issues of fear and risk from a Christian perspective, using primarily military examples and analogies. Holton teaches believers how to overcome fear and join the ranks of the army of God. Terrorism. Murder. Disease. Job Loss. Road Rage. Weapons of Mass Destruction. Environmental Disaster. What Are You "Scared?" By every sense of reason, you should be. By faith, you don't have to be. God's soldiers are issued body armor: Peace that surpasses understanding. But you must choose to put it on. Chuck Holton reveals how to claim this peace of mind and rest in the sovereignty of God's plan while stationed in our dangerous world. Not denying legitimate causes for fear, Holton's balanced perspective to living boldly as a Christian today offers refreshing hope in the midst of rampant anxiety. Because when you begin seeing things from the Commander's perspective, you won't have to dodge bullets. Until your mission is complete, "you are bulletproof. " 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 Christians--one 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."

Life Changing Sep 17, 2008
This book is absolutely indispensable for Christian men in a battle setting. Any fears you may have had will dissolve quickly when you apply the knowledge and insight given in Mr. Holton's book. I do high risk security and go "hands on" within the context of low socioeconomic multi-family housing situations, and I often go against a superior force. Anything can happen, up to and including murder. The stress can destroy a man, but resting on the infallibility of God's word, Mr. Holton presents a clear, concise, first-hand account of the success and applicability of God's wisdom. Lest we not forget, God, too is a warrior.
For Christians Only Apr 28, 2008
As another reviewer noted this book is written by a Christian for other Christians. Had I bothered to read the previous reviews I would have known this fact. I have friends who have read this book and enjoyed it, but they are Christians and I am not - so obviously there are a lot of things in this book that does not apply/work for us non-Christians (unless you are searching for faith, then maybe this book could help? I don't know...) If you're a practicing Christian in the LE/MIL field I'm sure this book can be of great value, but for the rest of us I'm afraid it does not offer much.
Unreadable if you're not Christian Aug 21, 2006
For better or for worse, this book is not your standard personal growth tome. It is by a Christian, for Christians (only), and your enjoyment of it will vary accordingly.
Almost everything in this book premised on belief in Christ -- both in how Holton approaches fear and how he advises others to do so -- and if you don't accept Jesus as your savior, his advice and insights are completely useless.
If you're Christian (I'm not), you might find this aspect of it to be a net positive.
Bulletproof Jun 26, 2006
This last reviewer is apprantly numb to most things that tell it like it is. This book is an excellent tool for showing you the roots of fear and why you shouldn't fear. Chuck Holten tells it like it is, he tells what needs to be said.
This book will open your eyes to things in your life and give you some major insight into how Jesus views our lives.
It made me feel numb. kinda like a bulletproof vest. Feb 18, 2006
