If you're new to Doug Giles, how can I explain what you're in for?
Start with some Dennis Miller funny, wrap it around C.H. Spurgeon gravitas, and marinate it in the swagger of John Wayne, and you're starting - starting - to get the idea.
This book is for two kinds of people. 1) If you want to step it up, and live the kind of life that will actually matter in the light of eternity, this book is like a good coach, getting you to the top of your game. (2) If you're the kind of person with more sashay than swagger in your spiritual walk, this -- officially -- is your wake-up call.
What can you expect from his book?
You WILL laugh. Hard and often.
You WILL feel the sting when he sets up the historical ideal of how our Christian life ought to look, compared to today's realities.
You WILL WANT to man-up and live the kind of life that throws Hell into a panic, and live a life that will matter when you look back on it from eternity.
You WILL find real solutions to the mediocrity we are all tempted to settle for.
(Seriously, Doug's writing style is spit-out-your-coffee funny. You have been warned.)
First, this book is honest about what real life looks like. The hits we'll take, the enemies we'll make. If you wanna live a life that rattles some cages, expect to get snapped at.
Then it distills the Biblical solutions. How do you become the battle-hardened hero-type that can take the heat of the front lines? How was it done in times past, and how can you do it today?
Do you want to get in the fray? This book will help put you on course.
Too scared? Don't tap out just yet. This book is written to get you over that hurdle.
Read it, live it, and bring your bare-knuckled, winner-take-all faith into the fight where it'll do some good.
When Jesus preached his 30 year ministry, there was no Bible. There was no Church. There were missionary flocks only after Jesus assention. There were no Holy Wars, no Inquisition, No flawed teachings of "the church", no books intentionally left out of our KJV Bible, and no protestant reformation of Dr. Martin Luther. To know Jesus, you might have been the thief on the cross next to Jesus who plead, "Remember me when you come into paradise". And Jesus answered, "Today, thou shalt be with me in paradise." Or you might have been a prostitute like Mary Magdalene who washed her Lord's feet with expensive perfume and dried them with her hair. You might be like that rock of the present Catholic Church, Peter who denied Jesus three times before the cock crewed twice. You might be like Thomas who couldn't believe until he put his hand into Jesus side and pushed his finger through a nail hole in Jesus hand.Read more ›
Doug Giles offers and accessible, entertaining, thought-provoking guidebook for enduring the trials life throws at us. Among the plethora of books on the topic of conquering trials, Giles' stands alone with it's cover to cover scripture mixed with down-right hilarious analysis and application. I started reading If You're Going Through Hell, Keep Going less than a week ago. I finished it within a day of opening the book--it was so entertaining I couldn't put it down. But aside from being incredibly funny, the author provides solid, doctrinally-sound teaching that is hard to come by these days. No Christian's library is complete without a copy of this book! This book also makes a great gift for non-Christians experiencing hard times. It presents the truth of Christ in an honest, understandable, welcoming way.

I found this book to be a delightful change of pace. It was a book of sound and well thought out theology, that did not sound like it was written by a theologian, but like one of... Read morePublished on December 21, 2012 by Michael A. Johnson
I gotta say that I haven't read a Christian book like this before (and that's a good thing). The book is filled with real theology put in down-to-earth terms. Read morePublished on November 27, 2012 by Chris Hambleton
