5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Story of God's Forgiveness and Redemption 17 août 2010
Par Jody - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a magnificant story of God's unfalling love and forgiveness. It starts out with dark and discriptive details, that can make one a little uncomfortable at times, however, necessary to portray the deep,dark abscense of God's presence in the life of David Goldberg. But in the end Jesus Christ, show's His mercy and forgiveness, which is a free gift to all of us who are deep in sin and who ask for it. It is a powerful tribute to the love that God has for each and everyone of us and that no sin is without forgiveness. Thank you for this story, I pray those lost in sin, unable to feel worthy of God's love will find the hope they are looking for in this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought provoking read on God's Grace 15 octobre 2010
Par Sarah J. Bailey - Publié sur Amazon.com
I've never heard of biofiction before reading this book by Glenn Greenstein and Robert Parrish but I must say that I hope to find more biofiction put our by quality Christian authors. This book chronicles the story of a man who from his boyhood struggled with homosexuality, to a marriage, divorce to return to being a gay man, marriage, divorce, and then victory in Christ! This book had me gripped from the go since I never thought anyone could leave this lifestyle behind but I also know that the God I serve is great and He can do anything - He rescued me.

This book is not for the faint of heart, it is descriptive, and in that respect I was somewhat taken aback because I tend to stay away from books like that but I also know what the author's intent was - to make the reader feel what being in this lifestyle is like - addicting and controlling. Satan was at work to destroy this man's life and he almost succeeded in doing so but once again our Lord pulls him from the depths and raises him up. Some scenes were heartbreaking, parents whose only concern is where their next fix is coming from and a dad who belittles the masculine side of his son as were the man, David's life as a man lost in an evil world.

While I would say be cautious in who reads this I definitely see it being a benefit for those wanting to work with recovering homosexuals or who knows someone in that lifestyle. This book will hopefully make you stop and think the next you see a person living this life - David was shunned by Christians when he left that life and started attending a church - or who has left that life. As Christians we are told to hate the sin we are not to hate the person - God grieves at any of His people who leave Him and we need to do our best to bring the Truth to a hurting people while helping them heal.

**I was provided a copy of this book from Robert Parrish in exchange for my honest opinion, no other compensation was given.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "And Then Came Life" by Genn Greenstein and Robert Parrish 8 septembre 2010
Par L. Wagner - Publié sur Amazon.com
David felt "different" for as long as he could remember. His parents, especially his mother, recognized it, but were too caught up in drugs and alcohol themselves to really give him the love and affection he desired, thus driving David into the arms of other men to find the love and acceptance he craved. Through his Grandma's involvement, he went to church and gave his life to Jesus at a young age. She moved away and that influence was tossed aside.

Always striving for affection and love, David delved into the Miami gay nightlife, going to and throwing extravagant parties and orgies. Yet throughout all this time, he found neither longtime love or affection. Interestingly, he would hear a Voice, telling him to go another direction, being told 'I love you.' But David ignored the Voice, as he didn't want to be told what to do.

And Then Came Life is intense and sometimes very graphic. It shows the inattentiveness of the parents' input into a child's life because of their own selfishness, affecting the child disastrously. It displays the 'give and take' of bodily gratification, leaving one empty and lost. Most importantly, the book shows the consequences of choosing to ignore the guiding Voice, which, to me, is the voice of the Holy Spirit. It's a choice of wanting to do things one's own way and not wanting to be told what to do or obeying and living a life of true love.

Will David eventually come to the end of himself? Surrender to the Voice? Or continue in the ways of emptiness of bodily gratification? After all, he's now 28 years old, which is getting old in the gay community.

I was grieved throughout the story, not only because of his lifestyle choices and subsequent emptiness, but because of the lack of parental attentiveness due to drugs,alcohol, and social shame. I was also encouraged by the Voice David heard.

Last of all, I want the readers to know that this is based on true events, so they can know there is redeeming hope.

***Special thanks to Robert Parrish for sending me a review copy.***

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a God Story!! 9 octobre 2010

WOW!!! I started reading this book on a Friday night. As soon as I awoke on Saturday morning, I picked it up again. I knew this was a story about God's UNCONDITIONAL, LIMITLESS love and grace. I could not stop reading until I discovered how He would choose to deliver David from his life of hopelessness and destruction. While my story is very different from David's, I was repeatedly reminded of the pain and frustration I had felt during my search for acceptance, worth, and purpose. We all need to feel accepted, to know that we have value, and to know that our lives have meaning and purpose. This is what David was searching for, and this is what he found in Jesus. That is what this book is about. Thank You, God, for your relentless pursuit of David! You never stop loving us, and You never give up on us NO MATTER WHAT WE DO!

There is no real, true life apart from Jesus. He is Life itself! He brought David out of darkness and despair. That is what Jesus will do for anyone and everyone who calls on His name for help. He is THE SOURCE of everything good. He wants to give everything He has to you--including His very Life. Just ask Him for it. When you do, you will never be the same again!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AND THEN CAME LIFE 4 octobre 2010
Par Tommy-Ray Walters - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book reveals how GOD'S unfailing love is for ALL, John 3:16 " FOR LOVE SO LOVED
THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD
NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE." no matter what sins we have committed. The
book reveals how the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD drew David to the book supernaturally, and the saving knowledge of JESUS CHRIST. How Jesus Christ can change anyone who comes to HIM and receives HIS FREE gift of eternal life.

David's life was transformed into a new person; he has been delivered from past bondages, and from sins power. GOD has healed David, cleansed him and set him free.

I believe every parent or future parent needs to read this book, it will help them not to make the same mistakes David's parents made. I can see how a child can feel so rejected and confused that they can fall pry into a degrading lifestyle. As
David states he felt rejected, abandoned, and unloved by his family, and by his past
lovers.

Praise the LORD, David has married, and has a wonderful family!

PLEASE READ THE BOOK, IT WILL CHANGE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY'S LIFE.
