It seemed a lopsided battle. On one side, a small shepherd with a sling and five stones. On the other, a heavily armored ten-foot giant whose taunts and challenges immobilized an army of seasoned warriors.
The story of David and Goliath has become an almost universal underdog story; but in reality, Goliath never stood a chance.
In Giant Killers, emotional intelligence speaker, consultant, and author Steve Lawson identifies the five vital emotional and social skills David possessed: identity, discipline, graciousness, action, and hope. When combined with the power of God’s grace, these strengths made it possible for David to defeat Goliath, build a mighty army out of social rejects, and establish the greatest kingdom in the history of Israel.
We all face giants in our lives, if not as literally as David did. But like David, we can overcome any challenge, seizing with confidence the opportunities God places in our path. Giant Killers teaches you how to do so, providing a foundation on which you can build success after success. It all begins with you—and your willingness to trust in God’s grace.
“Lawson’s non-confrontational, non-judgmental,conversational writing style and thoughtful use of scripture offers a Christian perspective on how emotional intelligence and mindfulness can lead to the strength people often need to face their giants and overcome the barriers between fear and triumph. Although the book was written for a Christian audience, the universality of the David and Goliath story and the real-life situations discussed in the book do not preclude non-Christians from gaining insight into the importance of self-awareness, empathy, and hope.” IndieReader
