Wow, I flew through this book! This was something that I really needed in my life, making it incredibly impactful for me!
Louie Giglio’s self-help book, Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table, is a heavily Christian book. He prays at the beginning and end of the book, and the overall theme is not to let the devil have a seat at your table. Of course, the devil is not just the literal devil. He’s talking about how to stop letting anxiety, worries, fear take hold of your life.
I really enjoyed the personal stories that Giglio brings into his book, providing examples that helped me to understand what he was trying to explain. I also enjoyed at the end of the audio version of this book, he provided a live audio of a sermon version of this book. It was really interesting to listen to!
I feel like this book really helped me to be able to stop allowing things to interfere with my life when I don’t want them to. I would recommend this book for any person that is struggling with allowing dark thoughts to control their life. With the Christian tones, I think a believer will appreciate the book more, but if you’re a non-believer, but open to the idea of the book, it’s got great information in it!
Where to Find This Book:
Louie Giglio helps you find encouragement, hope, and strength in the midst of any valley as you reject the enemy voices of fear, rage, lust, insecurity, anxiety, despair, temptation, or defeat.
Scripture is clear: the Enemy is a liar who will stop at nothing to tempt you into poor decisions and self-defeating mindsets, making you feel afraid, angry, anxious, or defeated. It is all too easy for Satan to weasel his way into a seat at the table intended for only you and your King. But you can fight back.
Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at Your Table outlines the ways to overcome those lies so you can find peace and security in any challenging circumstance or situation. With the same bold, exciting approach to Scripture as employed in Goliath Must Fall and his other previous works, pastor Louie Giglio examines Psalm 23 in fresh ways, highlighting verse 5: “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”
You can find freedom from insecurity, temptation, and defeat—if you allow Jesus, the Shepherd, to lead the battle for your mind and heart. This spiritual warfare book for those who are leery of spiritual warfare books will resonate with Louie’s core Passion tribe as well as with Christians of all ages who want to live a triumphant life in God.
