Review of 'Goliath Must Fall - Winning The Battle Against Your Giants' by Louie Giglio

I have to admit, the first thing that drew me to this book was the cool cover design, then the fact that Louie Giglio writes it.  Talking about giants falling definitely piqued my interest also.

Louie launches the book in the story of David and Goliath, recreating the scene in a way I had not fully thought through before, as a masterful storyteller would.  He goes on to talk about the giants we face in our life. How often we think that the lesson of the story is that we are David, facing our giants, whereas the reality is, that it is Jesus who has faced our giants victoriously, when He went to the cross.  In Louie's words 'Your giant is dead, and yet your giant is still deadly' p33.  He compares this to killing snakes and pulling off their heads and how the head is still dangerous if someone steps on it.  Using this analogy he compares our giants to the snake heads that we stand on and get bitten.

Louie goes on to discuss some different giants you may be
facing. The giant of fear, rejection, comfort, anger and addiction.  He also discusses the importance of forgiveness.

This book is an interesting read with some really helpful insights. Louie interjects stories and analogies to further make his points, which all, in my opinion, worked really well to get his messages crystal clear.  He urges the reader to get their eyes set on Jesus and in glorifying Him through our lives, as David's eye's were.  We can walk in the freedom Jesus has won for us already.

I would recommend this book.
