The great question of life and of many who struggle to believe in Jesus is this: "If God is good, why do bad things happen?" It's likely you or someone you love has asked this question in the face of a storm, diagnosis or long-lasting trial.
Mercifully, in His great grace and sovereignty, God saw fit to include this question and its answer in Scripture. The book of Habakkuk gives us permission to not only ask God how long we and the world will suffer, but to also expect His answer.
In Still Standing, Pastor Louie Giglio unpacks Habakkuk's bold questions and God's faithful answers. On this 5-week journey, we'll see God's purposes in our suffering, anchor in the trustworthiness of His plans, and learn the power of the revival prayer Habakkuk demonstrates.
Life is short and the days are long, but God will still be standing in the end. By His power, we'll be standing in Him, too.

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.
