While Mr. Perry's meandering commentary had it's occasional moments of hilarity, I sincerely doubt that it would have the same effect on any reader that didn't already agree with the author's basic premise.
In Mr. Perry's defense, the subtitle of the book, "Kill Attackers in Christian Love", should have been an indicator that this book would be confrontational and sensational. Maybe it was my own fault for expecting a rational and reasonable presentation of scripture in defense of self-defense.
This book was also full of terrible grammar and obvious punctuation errors that would have been caught by any half-decent copy-editor.
As much as I would love to, I can't recommend this book to anyone.
If you are looking for a book that presents scriptural examples of self-defense and its Biblical basis, you should read Tactical Bible Stories: Personal Security Tips from the Bible, a book that uses Bible stories to illustrate personal security principles.
It is a refreshing point of view for anyone to think about. Far too often, things are 'proven' by taking scripture out of context without regard to the whole of the work.
The book is very thought provoking and will give the reader a lot to think about. Even a 'pacifist' will get a glimpse of other thoughts that might make them think a little without being a sheep blindly following something.
A definite must for any student of the subject.
While the author does use some biblical evidence to build his case, he doesn't do a thorough job of examining all the arguments for and against his position. Furthermore, he rarely quotes verses, preferring to say "The Bible says..." Of course, what follows is the author's interpretation of what the Bible says, not what it actually says. Quoting the verses -- or at least providing the exact chapter and verse where they can be found -- would be helpful.
There were a few passages in the book that were good. I appreciated the author's observation that Paul prayed for boldness more than anything else. I hadn't thought about that before, and I've been meditating on it for the last few days.
Ultimately, while I don't fully agree (or disagree) with the author's position, it is a good book to read if you'd like to challenge your own beliefs. Just remember that the book is written in an intentionally offensive tone and that you will need to further research the claims the author makes to come to your own conclusions.
