I love Louie Giglio. I’ve never personally been to any of the Passion Conferences, but I’ve heard that they’re amazing. I’ve listened to his sermons and Mr. Giglio just has a tonne of amazing things to say. I recently received his latest book, “I Am Not But I Know I Am” from Multnomah Publishers. I received it for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Everything I say is completely my opinion.  Anyway, I love Mr. Giglio. His book “I Am Not But I Know I Am” is wonderful. It’s short, not even reaching 200 pages, so it’s a very quick read. This book focuses on the story of God – how He’s more than enough, so we don’t have to be these perfect people. It talks about His love and how His love has been extended to us, so we can extend it to other people. This book has a lot of solid theological depth in it, but it’s broken down into bite-size pieces so the non-theologians among us can grasp them. We may be sailing in deep waters, but Giglio has given us a set of floaties to keep us going. This book is, in a word, encouraging. If you’re questioning who God is or what He thinks of you, read this book. Then it encourages you to go and LIVE your faith instead of just talking about it. Five out of five stars.

The title of this book is what intrigued me. It definitely gets your attention and draws you in. Reading this book definitely was a blessing because it got me to focus on the I AM instead of myself (i am not). If you are a person who tends to be a "control freak", someone who thinks more highly of themselves than they ought (see Romans 12:3), then this is a book for you. Specifically on pages 33-35, where Louie Giglio breaks down who I AM is versus who i am not, will be an eye-opening, humbling revelation. I hope everyone who reads this book will come to realize that I AM is the answer to every question, frustration, problem, conflict that you will ever have. No matter what the situation is, I AM is the Orchestrator of it all. I AM is in control, i am not!!! I also appreciated the (OBSM)>One-Word Bible Study Method, which I have incorporated into my personal Bible study. I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Louie Giglio is a traveling preacher who tells young adults what life really means and why we are all here. In this book, Louie explains to the reader that we are miniscule in the massive scheme of life. But at the same time we CAN make a difference if we do it through HIM. The author teaches us that everything in the universe was created by and revolves around God. Throughout the book, Louie uses a great amount of theology through scripture. I recomend this book to everyone. Everybody deserves to know why they are truly here and what each of our purposes are. It is an easy read and can be finished in about a week if you read quickly. I love how the author uses scripture frequently to make a point. This shows that God really means these things. I am a student from Hewitt-Trussville High School in Alabama.
