Item description for Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado...

Lucado suggests ways to face and slay the supersized challenges of life by following the biblical example of David. When David focused on God, giants tumbled. But when David focused on giants, he stumbled.

Publishers Description

You know your Goliath. You recognize his walk, the thunder of his voice.

He taunts you with bills you can't pay, people you can't please, habits you can't break, failures you can't forget, and a future you can't face. But just like David, you can face your giant, even if you aren't the strongest, the smartest, the best equipped, of the holiest.

David. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. His life has little to offer the unstained, straight-A saint. He fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the sound of Goliath, David gives this reminder:

Focus on giants -- you stumble; focus on God -- your giants tumble.

If you're ready to face your giants, let his story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.

Reviews - What do customers think about Facing Your Giants?

Given  Jan 9, 2010
This was a Christmas gift to my daughter. Lucado is an inspiring writer, who can capture ideas with amazing word pictures.
David, Giants, and You  Dec 24, 2009
In Facing Your Giants, Lucado examines the life of David and the literal giant Goliath as well as other figurative giants he faced such as being persecuted by Saul, warfare, family issues, and others. The book, like most of Lucado's books, is uplifting and encouraging to those facing tough circumstances in life. Whether it be sickness, career difficulties, relationship problems, or something else, he provides encouragement and helps the reader examine the life of David and how he worked with God through some of his own giants.

Multiple versions of the Bible are referenced and at times can seem as though they are chosen specifically to fit what Lucado would like the passage to say. This is not to minimize the scripture references but translations closer to word for word such as the New American Standard and King James are used minimally in favor of versions such as The Message and the New Living Translation.

Lucado definitely has a gift for story telling and uses this to provide visual imagery and possible thoughts the characters had during the Biblical stories of David. Some of this is interesting and provides a new perspective on familiar stories but the reader would do well to keep in mind that some of this imagery is Lucado's personal interpretation of the stories and not gospel truth.

A study guide is located in the back of the book which would serve as a good resource for further reflection or even as a group study.

As a whole, I found the book to be encouraging and thought through several difficult "giants" I've faced in my own life while reading it. Facing Your Giants would be good for anyone facing difficult circumstances to gain encouragement and inspiration through learning about the life of David.
Max is one of my favorites  Dec 18, 2009
another great read and even the movie was good. Love the story and the lesson.
Facing Your Giants  Dec 15, 2009
This is a series of messages by Max Lucado using the story of David and how he as a young man faced a giant about which the army of Israel was frightened. It is excellent and shows how we today, when facing the things in our life that seem monumental and impossible can be victorious like David of old.
Max Lucado  Nov 11, 2009
Absolutely wonderful book! Loved being able to buy the book "used" but yet couldn't even tell that it "was used". Lucado's writing, fantastic!!!
