“Giant Killers” by Steve Lawson

Giant Killers by Steve Lawson, published by West Bow Press is a pretty good little read.

Lawson uses the account of David vs. Goliath to bring out some useful leadership qualities for today. The book, according to the introduction, is intended to assist pastors in small churches with some of the challenges we face.. However, the information is quite useful – either a s initial instruction or a refresher – for many areas of life.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by many circumstances and this book is intended as a guide through some of those challenges and a reminder that God is greater, yet our faith is often weak.

The chapters are fairly short (and would make for a good beach book) and divided into the following sections – Identity, Discipline, Graciousness, Action, and Hope.

While I wouldn’t call this a “page turner” or a life altering read, I would recommend it to anyone who might be looking for some help and assurance in a difficult setting. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 stars and say it should be worth the time it takes you to read.

Thomas Nelson provides a free copy of these books for review through their “Booklook Blogger” Program www.booklookbloggers.com ; however, I am not required to give a positive review of the book.
