Love that this book doesn't shy away from the hard issues that we all face ... whether that be fear, rejection, addiction, anger, [fill-in-the-blank]. It can often seem like a losing battle, but Louie reminds us that no matter how big our giants are, we have a BIGGER God. It's not about trying harder, but about letting God do what we can never do our own. Jesus is > than any giants that we are facing or will face in the future. Definitely recommend this book if you're looking for freedom and for hope in the midst of your circumstances. Prepare to be INSPIRED and to see the giants in your life FALL!
Some inspiring quotes from the book:
"Whatever giants we're battling might be big - but it's not bigger than Jesus."
"We believe what God did for us is greater than what anyone could do against us."
"We are able because God is able."
"Our lives' central aim is to enjoy this great God and to glorify Him forever."
Goliath Must Fall is a book that must not go unread. This is Louie Giglio's best book to date. Our giants in our lives have already been conquered by Jesus dying on the cross. However, those giants lurk in the darkness and will rear up when we don't expect it. Learn why it is important to not only face your giant, but turn away from them. Then you can learn how to avoid running in with your giant. This book isn't a roadmap for fix-it-quick sin problem, but more of a you must turn from your giant because Jesus doesn't get satisfaction out of our disobedience towards Him.
Goliath Must Fall is a gift in our fight against the giants that try to defeat us and keep us from being everything God created to us to be. Applicable truths from God's word and Louie's own life experiences remind us that life will always bring giants, but we have the power of the Lord God Almighty in our arsenal. Jesus fought every giant and won the victory for us when He defeated death forever.

Look no further, Goliath Must Fall will keep you captivated...you won't want to put it down! Think you already know the story behind Goliath Must Fall? Think again! When I first received Goliath Must Fall I started reading it leisurely, until I quickly found myself unable to put it down! This book began to enlighten me on a Goliath I had been facing but was trying to ignore. Thank you Pastor Louie for sharing this message and stories from your darkest times. Goliath Must Fall so that God can get the glory!!!

If you have giants in your life (and who doesn't?) this book is for you!!! I had the privilege of reading a copy of the manuscript prior to the book's release. This is honestly one of the best/most helpful books I've ever read in my life. The overall message of the book is that Jesus is bigger than whatever you are facing today. The "conversation with a trusted friend" feel of the book, combined with the down-to-earth practical advice make this book a must-read. Whether you're struggling with your own giant or trying to help/encourage a friend battle theirs, you need to read this book!
