The Comeback: It’s Not Too Late and You’re Never Too Far
by Louie Giglio

Louie Giglio’s newest book, The Comeback: It’s Not Too Late and You’re Never Too Far, is drenched in grace and written in his classic style:  straightforward, easy to follow, and full of stories that keep your attention.  He’s writing about broken dreams, troubled relationships, financial pitfalls, loss, and more and how “God always sees our needs right now, whatever our needs are, and how God’s plans will always prevail…He comes through in his time and in his way–he always comes through.”comeback

When he talks about comebacks, he doesn’t ever promise that God’s going to make everything in your life perfect.  He tells the example of a young woman whose high school sweetheart and now-husband died in an unexpected cycling accident.  Two years later, her comeback still means her husband is gone and she’s grieving, but she’s seen how God has walked with her closely during that season of loss.

In this book, I think Louie Giglio really tries hard never to assume people know the Bible accounts he’s using in his writing.  He makes this book accessible for anyone–the unchurched, the unbeliever, the new Christian, the college student looking for some hope.   That’s a good thing!  At the same time, when he refers to a Bible story, he retells it in great length (taking a couple of pages to recap Joseph) and that can feel kind of basic for someone who loves Bible study and knows the stories of Joseph or Paul or Peter already.  So, this book could encourage anyone with the reminder that God hasn’t given up on you, but I do think those who will love it the most are those really digging into those stories at a beginner level or for the first time.

With that said, this book is an encouragement for those moments you feel lost, discouraged and defeated. It’s a reminder that there is hope.  God gives fresh starts and new beginnings, and He never gives up on us.
