Review: Goliath Must Fall

I received this book Goliath Must Fall: Winning the Battle Against Your Giants by Louie Giglio in the midst of an attack with anxiety. This book encourages you to fix your eyes on the size of your GOD not the size of your GIANT. 

And it doesn't matter what the threatening giant in your life. It can be depression or anxiety as it is with me. Fear. Rejection. Addiction. Anger. Giglio discusses battling the giant that is stopping you from living a full and free life. 

What I loved most about this book was the little nugget from the story of David and Goliath that I don't feel has ever been preached to me before. It isn't about being able to hit him well with my slingshot. It isn't about focusing on the giant at all. David is NOT us. David is JESUS. He is the giant slayer. He is who we must trust.

This book was simply fantastic, and I encourage anyone with something keeping you from your full life to take the time to read it. IN FACT -- I am giving away a copy of this book to one commenter. Just leave your name and email address and in one week, I will choose a random individual to win a free copy of this book!

Booklookbloggers.com provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Thank you for reviewing Goliath Must Fall. Fear, Rejection, Addiction, Anger accurately names four of the colossal giants that threaten my serenity and daily peace that only our Savior can conquer on my behalf. This was my first visit to your blog after reading your piece on pleasing God, not people on The Glorious Table. I feel like you are staring right into me with your writing. Thank you for your honesty and vulnerability - and your compelling review of this book. It is one I need to read!

I was drawn to this book a while ago---I read some other review somewhere, somehow and it definitely seemed like a must-read for me.

Rochelle, thank you for being vulnerable back. I have most realized that there are a lot of "us" out there -- and it isn't something we easily talk about. If we can start encouraging each other, we can start healing!
