Have you ever longed for a 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 sorrowing or in pain, if you’ve made mistakes or are grieving, if you’re disappointed or feel as though life doesn’t make sense.
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 is always good, all the time, and God’s plans will always prevail, even when our plans don’t.
God already knows what the solutions are. No matter what kind of disappointment or grief or pain or trouble or heartache you encounter, God always offers a new beginning, a change of heart, or a powerful spiritual turnaround. God offers the way forward, and his pathways are always good.
Your current circumstances will not get the final say in your life. God is the God of the comeback, no matter what kind of challenge you’re facing.
And your story can become a great comeback story too.

- Review by Chase
In The Comeback, Louie Giglio lets readers know that God is all about comebacks. Whether you were on top and have fallen or have been dealt a low hand in life, there is hope and redemption through Jesus – the author of the ultimate comeback.
I will admit that I typically enjoy every book by Louie Giglio, but I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with this read. It is refreshing to see his transparency and how Jesus beautifully redeemed different seasons of his life.
Giglio’s message comes straight from the good news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. The truth is that God is creator of the best comeback in history! There is hope found in the cross of Jesus. Throughout the book, Giglio exemplifies this truth by examining various accounts in Scripture of people who seemed too far lost of a comeback to happen.
You are not too broken to experience a comeback.
If you are in need of a comeback, or are looking for an encouraging book for your next small group, make sure to pick up a copy of The Comeback. This book can be a great tool to breath of fresh wind in your ministry and help mend brokenness in your faith community.
