From Publishers Weekly
Megaseller Lucado, with 40 million books in print, will draw more readers to his fold with this newest release, which focuses on the life of the Old Testament hero David. David crashed onto the scene in ancient Israel when he used a slingshot and one stone to fell the giant Goliath. He went on to become Israel's greatest king. Now Lucado has modern readers slaying their own giants using principles gleaned from David's life. For example, David focused on God, not giants; David's life was threatened by his nemesis King Saul, but David worshiped God; David stole the beautiful Bathsheba from her husband and then had him killed, but God forgave. Lucado goes beyond the storytelling to offer readers concrete actions to help slay their giants using the metaphor of the five stones David chose in his Goliath quest. The stones represent the past, prayer, priority, passion and persistence. Lucado's lively language ("Focus on giants—you stumble. Focus on God—your giants tumble.") and casual style appeal to the most reluctant readers, yet his spiritual depth will challenge and amaze. Added value comes with the study guide keyed to each chapter. Lucado has a giant winner here. (Nov. 21)

The trademark saying from Lucado, "Focus on your giants, and you stumble. Focus on God, and your Giants tumble." rangs true for me, even more than I realized. With my Giants, I now focus on God and my troubles begin to diminish and disappear. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has "Giants" in their life that are seeking to make you stumble and fall. Whether the giants are other people or personal troubles, this book will teach you that God WILL help you face those giants.
