"The story of David and Goliath has always intrigued me. It's a story you can read over and over again and pick up a different message each time. I've looked up to Louie for a long time, so when I heard he was writing a book on defeating the giants in your life I couldn't wait to hear his perspective. I had a major giant in my life called fear. If you are battling that same giant then Goliath Must Fall is a must read."

I began the book with my own opinion of who my Goliath was and what needed to be done to make him fall. After Louie's explanation of who and what our giants are made of, I realized that I was wrong.
The Goliath that I thought was my own turned out to be a symptom of many other giants that have been holding sway in my life. Fear, anger, control and even comfort have their hold on me. It took reading this book, with Louie's examples of situations for me to be able to see my giants with new eyes. His explanation that David was Jesus also showed me who had slayed my giants at the cross, that my thoughts and actions were what were still propping them up and that it was past time for me to finally let them fall.
Louie gives a suggestion of some actions to take over a 40 day period which will help. I've read that it takes at least 30 day period to create a habit (good or bad). The number 40 is such a Biblical number and, in appropriate in this instance for the days that Goliath taunted the Israelites. I intend to follow this suggestion to break down my habits that are keeping these giants on their feet.
This is a book that I will turn to again and again as I am sure that my giants will try to get their footings in my life once more. While the book describes events in the pastor's and others lives, the ultimate direction it always points to is Christ, the giant slayer, all-sufficient and victorious. Because of Him, indeed, Goliath must fall.
This book began to change a perspective on these two issues for me. I didn’t want to put it down. I am not saying with will cure mental illness or that you won’t need the help of a dr or medicine, but I am saying it offers a perspective that I needed and one that helped me to start putting my own illness into a perspective that has started to help me see my giants for what they are.
If you haven’t seen the series on TV (although I hate the station it is played on) this series is also worth watching. It isn’t the book all over again but it is another tool for our giants in life.
I thank God for finding this book, written by a man of God who has actually stood in the depths of depression and anxiety.
I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with a giant they desperately want to be free of. The principles presented will gently usher you into God's presence, His victory, and the freedom you seek. This is not a quick fix, self-help guide. It is a life-changing submission to your Father in Heaven and an eye-opening look at what truly plagues our lives and how to truly walk in our purchased freedom. As Louie says in the book, "It's a book about worship."
