Conquering Your Giants
Abingdon Press announces the publication of Five Stones: Conquering Your Giants written by pastor and author Shane Stanford alongside business and government leader R. Brad Martin. These two leaders have faced giants in their respective professional and personal lives, and their new book offers wisdom and encouragement for readers facing their own life challenges. Releasing August 2013, Five Stones leverages the Old Testament story of David facing the giant Goliath to illustrate how ordinary people can still overcome the greatest odds they face. Whether the “giants” are faced in arenas of business, personal health, relationships or soul matters, Stanford and Martin bring life experience, practical advice, and insightful questions to each battleground.
Brad Martin, as the former CEO of Saks Incorporated and youngest member ever elected to the Tennessee House of Representatives, knows what it’s like to face overwhelming odds. “No one thought I could win an election as a 20-year- old junior in college facing a two-term incumbent, but I did,” says Martin. Likewise, Stanford, an HIV+ hemophiliac and successful pastor, has faced a chronic and often misunderstood illness for most of his life. Both men have dedicated their energies to encouraging and teaching others, using their own challenges and successes as examples of God’s faithfulness.
