    Excellent Study Based on the Life of David

    This book is written in a contemporary style. It is easy and fun to read, presenting biblical facts with practical everyday applications. It encourages and gives hope to those of us who are still "works-in-progress".

    Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado

    Everyday, we are troubled by our pursuits to find the perfect job, to be in a relationship, to make more money... the list goes on. We all have our personal struggles, and these struggles consume us. These are our giants. We know what they are, but what we don't know is how to face these giants and look them in the eye.

    In Facing Your Giants, Max Lucado connects King David's journey with our everyday battles. David's story is composed of so much more than how he defeated Goliath. David made many mistakes, and his relationship with the Lord was far from perfect. Like David, we need to be reminded that with God's help, we can conquer anything-even if we aren't the smartest, the strongest, or even the holiest.

    Facing Your Giants is the first Max Lucado book I've ever read, and to be honest, reading through the many Bible verses took some getting used to. However, the book was well worth my time. I had very little knowledge of David before reading this book, and I very much appreciated how Lucado shows us that David was so. human.

    This book is perfect for people who, like me, occasionally need to be reminded:
    Focus on giants-you stumble.
    Focus on God-your giants tumble.

    Really Good book

    David was a man after Gods own heart. He did many good and bad things in his life. He also had many stumbles and in this case giants. David was just like us. He had girl problems, money problem, she even had to battle his own literal giant. He had habits he wasn't able to break, failures he couldn't seem to forget, but when focusing on God he was able to get through it all. We all go through it, grades we can't seem to make, people we can't seem to please, but with God on our side nothing is impossible.

    Great Book

    Now this is not normally the kind of book I usually choose to read. But I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to read. It was an easy and fun read. The Biblical facts are presented with practical everyday applications. This book gives encouragement and hope to those that read it. The correlation of comparing us to David and the everyday challenges we face as Goliath is a good way to look at things. It shows is that having faith in God and with hard work we really can handle our challenges. Just like David was able to handle Goliath.

    Great read

    This book is more than a devotional it should be called a motivational. I've been both educated and inspired by this book.
