Publisher's Summary

If you could spend a few minutes with the giants of faith in the Old Testament in person, what lessons would they share with you? In Learning from the Giants, John C. Maxwell draws on 50 years of studying the Bible to share the stories of Elijah, Elisha, Job, Jacob, Deborah, Isaiah, Jonah, Joshua and Daniel. These people fought and won epic battles, served kings, and endured great hardships for God to come out on the other side transformed through His grace. Through them Maxwell explores timeless lessons we can learn about leadership, ourselves, and our relationship with God.

another good read

I enjoy John C. Maxwell's style of writing in this book as well as the other two similar ones. I feel as if he invited me into his home as a friend to spend a day while high caliber guests enter, stay awhile, and then depart. It gives me a sense of importance that I can be a part of the experience. Chris Sorensen did a superb job in vocalizing each character to keep them distinct in my mind.

We do learn from uncommon situations.

The story about Job and his life struggles really hit home for me. Please continue producing books like this.

Awesome Insights!

The depth of insights and leadership of the Giants of the Faith was amazing. So many good points to think on, ponder, and apply. I'll be returning to this book many times.
To me the narrator at times got almost whiny. There was often no real passion or conviction in his voice. I viewed it as being a neutral reader but drove my spouse crazy.

Not my favorite John Maxwell book

Very imaginative story, but I prefer John Maxwell ' s non-fiction books that cover biblical approaches to personal development and business. Consequently, this book was a little difficult to finish.
