Winning the Battle Against Your Giants
By Louie Giglio

OVER VIEW: In Goliath Must Fall, pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. The key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer—Jesus. Put your hope in him and watch Goliath fall.

AUTHOR: Louie Giglio is pastor of Passion City Church and the founder of the Passion movement, which exists to call a generation to leverage their lives for the fame of Jesus. Since 1997, Passion has gathered collegiate-aged young people in events across the U.S. and around the world. Most recently, Passion 2017 gathered more than 55,000 students in Atlanta's Georgia Dome in one of the largest collegiate gatherings in its history. Louie is the author of six books. As a communicator, Louie speaks at events throughout the U.S. and across the globe. He is widely known for messages like "Indescribable" and "How Great Is Our God." An Atlanta native and graduate of Georgia State University, Louie has done postgraduate work at Baylor University and holds a master's degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

MY REVIEW: Goliath Must Fall found its beginning in a series of messages that were preached at Passion City Church. The book is recommended by someone as young as Sadie Robertson and as old as Dr. Charles Stanley. We all, regardless of age face giants that must be dealt with. Maybe not literal giants but BIG problems and challenges that we can't handle. This book offers a pathway away from the fear that has you in its grasp. God wants you to overcome your fears and He is using Louie Giglio and his book to teach you that Goliath must fall. Your Goliath!

Goliath Must Fall is written in a way that keeps your attention. As I read through the chapters I felt like I could hear Louie's voice. There are nine powerful, uplifting chapters. As you read through them your confidence will build. By the time your finish the book you will truly believe that your Goliath must fall. This is a book you will want to read and this pass it on to someone else who needs it.
