The Bible tells us again and again that we are children of God, but for many, the idea of "God the Father" is confusing at best and painful at worst.
Not Forsaken introduces readers to a God who desperately wants to know them and be the healing, steadfast presence in their life they may be missing.
What makes us feel forsaken by God? Is it because we feel broken and unworthy of God's love? Maybe we've suffered deep wounds from those who were supposed to love us unconditionally. Bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio shines a light on how flawed relationships of our past can ultimately affect how we see God - and ourselves.
What do you think of when you think about God? What do you think God thinks about you?
The answers to these questions inform everything about who you are and who you are becoming. It is vital we understand this; because if we have a flawed view of God, we'll have a flawed view of our own life story.
To live fully and embrace all that God has for us, we must understand who He is, free from the baggage we have accumulated over a lifetime of broken relationships with broken people.
You are what God says you are. Beautiful. Valuable. Whole.
Order Not Forsaken right now, and begin your journey toward understanding what it means to find your identity in Christ and a relationship with a Father in heaven who loves you.
"In Not Forsaken, my friend, Pastor Louie Giglio brilliantly and beautifully helps us form a freeing, scriptural image of God. Don't put this important and timely resource down."

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.
