In showing how Christ's love, forgiveness and cleansing gets worked into the deep crevices of our lives, Shane Stanford and Brad Martin have penned a gutsy little book that would be excellent for reading groups, small study groups and definitely for passing along to close friends being pounded on by their own giants.

Frank Viola

The greatest battle the Christian faces is very often the battle with himself or herself. This book seeks to inspire, challenge, and enhance self-discovery as the authors creatively apply the story of David and Goliath to every believer today.
