Our kids face more pressure and stress than ever before. Issues such as fear, jealousy, loneliness, and anxiety seem like giants standing in the way of the joy-filled childhood and adolescence we want them to have. In Goliath Must Fall for Young Readers, pastor Louie Giglio shows kids that only God can help them defeat those giants—and He will.
This hardcover book:
Is adapted for middle grade readers, ages 8 to 12, from the national bestseller Goliath Must Fall, which has sold over 200,000 copies
Has practical tools and thought-provoking activities to help kids learn strategies to surrender their fears, overcome bad habits, and let go of the comforts this world tells them they have to have
Is a great purchase for kids who are struggling with stress, anxiety, technology addiction, or other troubles and for fans of Louie’s other children’s books, Indescribable and How Great Is Our God
While addressing the struggles kids face today with temptation, social media comparisons, and anxiety, Louie Giglio reveals a surprising twist in the David and Goliath story that might just change everything about the way we see Jesus and how to conquer the giants in our lives.
There are quotes to highlight and and thoughts to ponder but Giglio doesn't talk over the heads of kids reading this book. Goliath Must Fall is easy to understand but it still accomplishes what Giglio intended: young people will be encouraged and motivated to stand up to the problems they are facing, to put on the Armor of God, and to "use the sword by reading God's Word and memorizing verses that focus on God's power and peace." I especially like that there are personal experiences and Bible references to increase their understanding and specified blank pages for them to jot down their own thoughts.
This book targets readers 8-12 but it is a valuable resource for all of us who want to grow in our Christian faith! I recommend Goliath Must Fall for Young Readers to all who have young people in their lives and I believe that it would be a wonderful addition to your church library.
I accepted a copy of this book from the publisher. There was absolutely no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
