God wants us to live free from the demoralizing voice of that giant, and because God wants to get glory in our lives by showing the world that he is greater than everything we face in our lives, then that giant’s got to go down.
What are the giants in your life that keep your from living life freely? Can you identify them? In the passion that is known of Louie Giglio, he is passionate about Christians living life freely to give God glory. Another words, without this freedom from our giants, we are unable to give glory to God in our lives. The table of contents will give you an ideal of the adventure that awaits you.

Giglio has taken the story of David – well known for his fight for Goliath in how the giants in our life must go down. David is not just another story but an example of Christ. Giglio has also stresses that this is not just another self-help book but one that identifies the giants we may be blinded too. It is here that I am wary because if it quacks like a duck, it is a duck. The trouble of any self-help book is that we focus on what we need to do and be instead of who God is and what he has created us for. His glory. The self-help can lead us to tread mill of doing instead of the glory of salvation.
Is this helpful? I believe it can help in identifying our giants. We may not think we have a problem with anger but anger comes in many forms and the roots run deep. It is our motivation that is telling. I think Giglio identifies this well.
Our giants can be the cause of stress, anxiety, and depression which in these cases, we need others to walk us thru it. This book is a great start for that journey not only being free but in that freedom living for God.
