Giants In The Land - Reviewed
More about the book:
There are giants in the land.
And it has always been so as far as anyone can remember. They work side-by-side with the people, and whenever there is a job too difficult or a threat too great they are there to step in. The giants’ presence gives the townspeople a special confidence about life. But they have become much more dependant on the giants than they realize. One morning the people discover the giants have mysteriously disappeared. Fear and panic grip the town. Someone must find them and bring them back!
Thomas, a young farmer, volunteers and sets out alone on a great journey of danger and discovery. Thomas learns the true nature of giants and what it means for him and his people. Join Thomas in his timeless rite of passage and learn what it means to become something more than you have been, why it is necessary in life, and how to do it.

Do you remember the special people in your life that had an impact on who you are? Was it a teacher? A coach? Your youth Pastor? Counselor from school, Grandparent, Mom and Dad?
What happens when the Giant in our life moves on either by circumstance or death?
Clark has written an allegory that even young kids can understand, about how keep going even without the Giant. It is also a encouraging book for adults as well. The chapters are quick and move at a nice pace.
I would recommend this as a gift for a graduate. Highly recommended!
