If you saw the movie, you may think you do need to read the book. However, if you do not read the book, you will miss out on a lot of blessings the authors have added to the book. As great as the movie was, the book is just as great if not better.

It was a great book. It was just like the movie. It was more in depth of the characters thoughts and some add in's that wasn't in the movie. I couldn't put the book down. When I watch the movie I have a more understanding of the characters. If you loved the movie then get the book!

Eric Wilson is best know for suspense novels with historical backgrounds. With each novel he's shown growth and depth as an author and a man. His first four novels were very different and yet revealed trademarks of the Wilson signature.Now with the release of Facing The Giants Eric stands everything you've known about him before on it's proverbial head and shows he's no one trick pony. Not only can he come up with imaginative plots and characters that are at once real and larger than life, but he can also take someone else's work and make it his own. This he's done with Facing the Giants.Originally a grassroots successful film depicting the real life struggles of a high school football team, their coach and community, Eric Wilson's novelization takes that framework and builds his own story brick by brick. Yes, much of the book reflects the original movie, but Wilson adds depth and meaning where a film-goer might be left to wonder.Admittedly, this isn't my kind of story and I've told Eric so. I much prefer suspense. However, it is a great read and a reminder of God's faithfulness even in the darkest night of your life. As always Eric brings characters and situations to life, raw with emotions, heart, courage and weaknesses.Next up for Eric is the novelization of another film, Flywheel--coming in April. And then, in October, Eric will change everything again with the release of book one of the Jerusalem's Undead series. Book one is called Field of Blood. Think 1st century Jerusalem and vampires. How can you not want to read that?

The lady that I gave this to as a gift,since she is more of a reader than a movie viewer, said "If someone isn't inspired by this book, they just don't know God when they experience Him." She said that she will continue to review it in times when she needs encouragement on her way to her "promise".

Love the book and movie! Love the characters and the story line! Many scenes in the movie and book touched me and my family and friends that it brought tears even to the men who were watching.
