Not Forsaken by Louie Giglio – Book Review

Not Forsaken

Not Forsaken: Finding Freedom as Sons & Daughters of a Perfect Father

According to Louie Giglio, we all long for our father’s blessing. When we receive it – when we are blessed with good, loving fathers – we are positioned to flourish as we grow into adulthood. When we lack our father’s love and blessing, however, we often feel like there’s a shadow hanging over us throughout our lives – like we’re missing a piece of the puzzle that we can never quite find.


Thankfully, there’s a way for us to move past the feelings of hurt, woundedness and abandonment that we often feel when our human fathers do not love us in the ways that they should. In his new book Not Forsaken: Finding Freedom as Sons & Daughters of a Perfect Father, Giglio offers hope to those who need their father’s blessing by pointing us to to our Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally and infinitely – the One who will never leave or forsake us.

Child Of God

Not Forsaken helps us to assess and understand the nature of our relationship with our earthly fathers – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and how that relationship impacts us in all aspects of our lives, including our current relationships and our relationship with our Heavenly Father. For a lot of us, this experience is painful and exposes us to wounds that need healing.

The Promise

Giglio assures us that this is okay – he encourages us to cry, express our anger, take time to journal, and to experience the full range of emotions we need to feel as we work our way through this book.

The end result?

Your Life

Knowing and experiencing God as Father can unlock prison doors, heal wounds, and propel us into greater purpose in our lives.

If you are in need of your Father’s love, your Father’s blessing, and your Heavenly Father’s healing, I encourage you to read this book!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
