Slaying Your Giants: Biblical Solutions to Everyday Problems
The author's examples and illustrations are great.
My life group has studied the first 4 chapters so far. They are very good and the material provided is practical. The examples the author uses and the stories he relates are great illustrations of the issues he is discussing. The only thing I don't like is the location of the study questions and the amount of space provided for answers. I'd prefer the questions be at the end of the chapter rather than the end of the book. However, I'm glad the questions are in the lesson book rather than in a separate book which would make the study more expensive.

A great guide to solving life's everyday problems
Kent Crockett has written an easy to read, conversational book that provides solid, biblical based answers to life's problems. Each of the book's 20 chapters deals with a "Giant" such as Fear, Doubt, Temptation, Unforgiveness, Death and other of life's problems and gives solid biblical based illustrations of God's plan for handling these obstacles. The author has an easy to read style that intersperses personal stories and experiences he has observed over his long career as a pastor along with biblical references that accurately pinpoint how God wants us to hurdle these problems. The book includes a discussion guide for small group bible study the reader will find helpful in leading discussion of these pertinent topics. Your eyes will be opened by the author's insight into hidden gems of biblical insight such as: Why did God put the forbidden tree in the middle of the garden?
Pastor Crockett has a tender neart for pastoral care of his flock and it's brillantly evident in his latest book.
