Publisher's Summary

 Like David, you know well the presence of Goliath.

Your Goliath doesn’t carry a sword or shield; he brandishes blades of unemployment, abandonment, or depression. Your giant doesn’t parade up and down ancient hills; he prances through your office, your bedroom, your classroom. He brings bills you can’t pay, addictions you can’t resist, a past you can’t shake, and a future you can’t face.

How long has your Goliath stalked you? Invaded your first thought of the morning and last worry of the night?

David knows a little something about facing giants. The shepherd boy seemingly had little to offer against the nine-foot, nine-inch Goliath. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. Throughout his life, David fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the threat of a Goliath, David gives this reminder: Focus on giants — you stumble. Focus on God — your giants tumble.

Are you ready to face your giant? Let David’s story inspire you.The same God who helped him will help you.

A study guide is available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Encouragement When I needed It

There’s nothing like feeling useless or too sinful or a burden. I appreciate the encouragement that even David had personal giants. God was there for him no matter where life took him. I was encouraged by knowing Good will fight my giants too

Such a great book!

This audiobook is well done. Information and stories are organized in a way that flows easily and is backed by scripture. The story of David’s life is filled with life lessons for us all and the hope of overcoming the giants we face through shifting our focus from our giant to God.

Max Lucado is an Awesome Author

I am very fond of this book. I especially like the combination of scripture and its relativity to modern day life. Max certainly understands that our giants come in many forms and different ways.
