Conquering Your Giants
by Shane Stanford and R. Brad Martin
“Shane and Brad have written an inspiring and practical book for anyone battling giants in their life or organization.”
—Adam Hamilton, NY Times Bestselling author of Why? and Preacher, National Prayer Service, 2012 Presidential Inauguration
Shane Stanford and R. Brad Martin frame their book on conquering our giants in ministry, business and life on one of the most well-known and well-loved stories in history: David and Goliath.
"Giants are not new to the human experience; we have just forgotten how to talk about them—and, greater still, how to defeat them."
Read what Adam Hamilton and other pastors and business leaders are saying about the new book Five Stones.
"This book will show you that not only are the giants of your life defeatable, but each of us has been given the right tools to win the battle."

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.
Can we practice in advance for facing giants? From my perspective, this involves having a vision and discovering spiritual practices that nurture our imagination and self-esteem.
I tend to read the Bible quickly, and to skim over what I already "know." This book, though, took what seems to be a pretty straightforward Bible story and unpacks it in a way that I appreciated.
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.
