Book Review - The Comeback


We all know what it feels like to have life disappoint us and not work out as we’d hoped. We all know what it’s like to long for something different, something better, something more.

The Comeback celebrates new beginnings. It offers encouragement and perspective, and it’s for you if you feel frustrated or confused, if you’re enduring hardship or pain, if you’ve made mistakes or are grieving, if you’re defeated or feel as though you’ve lost your way.

The good news is that God is in the business of giving fresh starts to people. He gives hope to the hopeless. Direction to the directionless. Help to those who need help. God’s plans will always prevail, even when our plans don’t.


Louie Giglio is the pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and founder of Passion Conferences—a global movement of college-aged people living for the fame of Jesus Christ. A dynamic and effective communicator, Louie holds a master of divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Shelley, live in Atlanta.


I was first introduced to Louie Giglio when I did one of his Bible reading plans on YouVersion. I was so impressed by it, I just had to read The Comeback! I was definitely not disappointed.

This book is for anyone who has ever been disappointed by life (hello! I think we can all relate to this!) and is not sure how to make that comeback. There are so many profound thoughts and so mch guidance from Mr. Giglio in this book! I literally couldn't put it down!

He shares stories from the Bible - the story of Joseph and Jesus, for a couple - and how they had so much thrown at them in their lives. He shares how hard some of the things they went through were. How hopeless at the time they seemed. However, each of these men had a comeback. Not only Biblical stories, but stories of real people who have been through really difficult things, including Mr. Giglio himself. 

I absolutely love this book! I was so inspired and learned so much! I will definitely be re-reading this book again and again. For those times when I'm not sure where I'm at, this book will be just the encouragement I need to not give up. I highlighted so many sentences, there is very little white space left! I just love it and give it 5 out of 5 stars. I highly, highly recommend this book to everyone!
