Louie Giglio, the director of the Passion Movement that has reached more than a million young people, now brings his message of courage and faith to our kids in Goliath Must Fall for Young Readers.
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.
Adapted for middle-grade readers from the national bestseller Goliath Must Fall, this new edition addresses the struggles kids today have with temptation, social media comparisons, friendships, and anxiety. Brand new call-outs and prompts help kids learn practical strategies to surrender their fears, overcome bad habits, and let go of the comforts this world tells them they have to have.
As a pastor, international speaker, and founder of the Passion Global Institute, Louie Giglio knows the heartbeat of the next generation. Drawing on decades of experience helping young people realize God's calling on their lives, Giglio speaks with the grace and wisdom we long for our kids to hear as they grow up.
As Giglio reminds readers, they don't have to settle for feeling stuck in their emotions or thoughts. The God who saved David from the giant Goliath is the same God who can save them today.
Louie Giglio was born 30 June 1958, and grew up in a Christian home in Atlanta, Georgia. He was an average college freshman at Georgia State University in 1977, that is, until one night, at 2 a.m., when he decided to devote his life to following Christ, not the college party life. He was inspired to be one of the first people to design a modern style of worship that is geared specifically toward young adults, with casual attire, expressive worship, and low-key, visually driven sermons.
Louie went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Shelley started Choice Ministries, a Bible study at Baylor University that would become hugely popular among the student body. In 1995, when he moved back home to Atlanta, Georgia, due to his father's failing health, Louie founded a national gathering of Christian college students called the Passion Movement. From the first Passion Conference in Austin, Texas, in 1997, nearly a million university students have attended Passion-linked prayer, worship, and teaching events across the US, reaching a peak in the 17-city Passion Tour of 2008.
As part of the Passion Movement, Louie began a recording company, Sixsteps Records, which has signed and produced various Christian worship artists, such as David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Charlie Hall. He also started a Bible study movement, 7:22, aimed at single adults in the Atlanta area, which would attract thousands.
Louie has authored numerous popular books, including The Air I Breathe, I Am Not but I Know I Am, Indescribable, Passion, Wired: For a Life of Worship, Lost in Wonder, and The Comeback.
In 2008, Louie announced the planting of Passion City Church (PCC) in Atlanta, and was joined in the new venture by popular Christian recording artists Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman. Prior to this, Louie had attended North Point Community Church for 13 years, Louie and his wife Shelley make their home just outside of Atlanta.
