Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado

Facing Your Giants looks at the ordinary struggles of human life from the perspective of King David's experience. Beginning with the well known account of how David faces Goliath and drawing lessons from that unlikely victory Lucado, in his poetic prose, comforts and encourages believers to allow God to meet them in the trials of life.

Lucado writes with honesty from his own heart as well as David's as he tackles such subjects as rejection, fear of others, loneliness and guilt. There are no platitudes or easy answers here but acknowledgement of the devastating impact of sin upon personal lives and comfort for those weary of the world. The core of the solution to our difficulties is summed up by Lucado in these words - focus on giants, you stumble; focus of God, your giants tumble.

This is a book of encouragement and hope for all those who at one time or another feel defeated by the giants in their lives, whatever those giants may be.
