Reviews - What do customers think about (reflections of) an American Idiot?

A great read!  Jul 6, 2007
When I started to read Reflections it took me back to my childhood and growing up in conservative church.
I could relate being made to attend Sunday School, the flannel graph, the Bible drills, and the songs we sung...Give me gas for my ford, keep me preachin for the Lord...It made me laugh, and as I remembered some of dead religion and baggage I grew up with it made me cry. What moved me most about Ron's book is his open honesty, and his compassion for those suffering with AIDS. Thank you Ron for writing a book that I can give to my Gay friends, as well as those serving alongside in our community. Many blessings!
Reflections on a REAL life....  Apr 28, 2007
It was very difficult reading through this book without feeling old hurts brought to the surface of my mind. R.F. Koustas does not hold back sharing with us some of his most vulnerable moments ranging from his early childhood to his struggles as an adult. Though he has some very humorous antic dotes, it was the trials he's gone through that really moved me and in some ways hit very close to home.
I could relate to R.F.'s earlier school years in Kearny, NJ dealing with the cruelty that children show so well to fellow classmates who are not deemed worth of being "popular". The particular chapters dealing with these experiences were moving and made me root for him as if he were the teen underdog in a John Hughes film.
What really drives this book, though, is the complete honesty R.F. writes with. When reading or listening to the mass media about such controversial topics as a relationship with God, sexuality, or AIDs, there are usually only two major views. These views are the left or the right, the for or against. Few if any ever discuss or even admit to the chaotic middle or grey areas that most of us have to face within ourselves. R.F. shares his experiences the way they are...challenging, messy, confusing, and joyful. No bias, just living. If you want to know what it's like to be a REAL man, then get to know this American Idiot.
Spot On Reflections on the Evangelical Subculture  Feb 8, 2007
This is a very engaging and entertaining book that tricks you into deep thinking and reflection. I started reading this book when it arrived this afternoon and could not put it down till I was finished. Several times I laughed out loud, several times I was deeply moved. Ron writes with real insight and wisdom into the evangelical subculture. His reflections are widely ranging. Sometime his reflections on evangelicalism are affectionate, sometimes they are prophetic. They are always conveyed with good will, wit and humor. Ron provides us with an honest account of his journey from the evangelical ghetto, through the velvet barriers of Studio 54 and Manhattan's "fabulous" era of unrestrained freedom, back to the arms of the God who loves him, you, me and even those we think most unlovely. He shares how the tragedy of HIV taking down those closest to him lead him to embrace a more authentic "Jesus Creed" style of Christianty and empowered him to grow one of NY's largest HIV ministry. I think this is a great book for Christians struggling to figure out how to minister like Jesus did and let the world stop praying, "Jesus save me from your followers". It provides helful foder for the debate on how evangelical Christians can respond with love to people struggling with sexual brokeness and same sex attraction. It is a great book to give to seekers and prodigals who like Christ but have had it with Christians.

I am looking forward to Ron's colaboration with me on our series, "I Dated a Hoochie-Mama", "I Married a Hoochie-Mama" and "Helpful Advice to Pastor's Wives from One Who Was a Former Hoochie Mama". (see page 55)
