Using the story of David and Goliath as the background, Louie Giglio writes the wonderful book on overcoming the “giants” we face in our lives—giants like anger, fear, addiction, etc. The solution is clear, these giants not just can fall, they MUST fall! Through personal stories and strong biblical teaching, Giglio makes a wonderful case for the freedom God wants each of us to have in our lives. Now to be clear, I have heard teachings relating the story of the biblical giant killer to overcoming our struggles before, but there is something very unique and very correct here. Most authors writing books like this one will tell us we’re to be like David, we’re the giant killers, etc. Giglio takes a different tack and I believe it is the correct ones. You see, he goes to great lengths to remind the reader that we are not the giant killer in this story, Jesus is and so it is with us. The ultimate victory in our battle against the giants we face will not be ours. It is Jesus who will win the battle and it is Jesus who will set us free. This is an excellent book that everyone who has ever struggled with anything should read.
