Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! Today I speak with Leif Hetland about his new book Giant Slayers: Ground Rules for Overcoming Life's Greatest Obstacles (Destiny Image, 2017).
Here's the ground we cover in this conversation:
- Leif, I know you’re going to be new to many of my listeners, so let’s begin with your background. Tell us a bit of the Leif Hetland origin story. (00:36 - 03:01)
- Next let’s get into the story behind the book. Was there a specific season of your life and ministry that birthed the message you share in Giant Slayers? (03:02 - 07:46)
- The book is divided into three parts, so let’s have you give the listeners a sneak peek at some of the ground you cover in each section of the book. Talk to us about how we can understand God’s timing. (07:47 - 12:49)
- What do we need to remember about aligning with God and aligning with others as we’re getting ready to step into the field and enter the fight? (12:50 - 17:48)
- Once we’re positioned for the fight, we’re going to be stepping onto the field. We’ll surely encounter critics and experience fear as we’re pursuing something new. How do we ignore those critics and face our fears head on? (17:49 - 22:49)
- Let’s jump ahead to part three in the book. Talk to us about why it’s important to be ourselves and why that’s a key part of taking the victory. (22:50 - 27:47)
- What do we need to know about choosing the right weapons as we’re facing our own giants? (27:48 - 31:35)
- Leif, if we had the technology to beam you in front of every single reader as they finish the last page of Giant Slayers, what parting challenge or word of encouragement would you want to share with each of them? (31:36 - 34:30)
- Each chapter closes with questions to ponder and a declaration. How would you like to see churches and small groups put Giant Slayers to use? (34:31 - 36:35)
- I also wanted to commend you and your team for the amazing gift boxes you sent to your influencers. The personalized sling was very creative. Who came up with that idea? (36:37 - 38:18)
- Leif, if the listeners want to connect with you and find out more about Giant Slayers, where should they go on the web? (38:19 - 39:22)
About the Book: The world is full of giants...
Some come knocking on our doors, threatening to tear our lives apart. Others are far away, guarding treasure and glory, waiting to see who will challenge them.
Maybe debt is your giant—a pile of second and third notices that you don’t know how to answer. Maybe it is an illness—a diagnosis that destroys hope or an injury that puts an end to your dreams. Maybe your giant is a cause—a suffering people that pulls at your sense of justice or an inequality in your community. Maybe it is fear—a paralyzing doubt that sends you into long days of anxiety and depression. Hunger, disease, poverty, corruption, abuse, deceit, war, addiction, hate—we live in a world of giants.
Fortunately, we also live in a world of giant-killers!
Encounter the story of David and Goliath like never before. Learn the practical “ground rules” that will bring you into a life of facing your fears, overcoming obstacles, and slaying the giants that keep you from fulfilling your destiny!
