Louis Giglio's Not Forsaken to Introduce Prisoners to God the Father
What comes to mind when you think about God? Is He a ruler that expects absolute authority and tribute? A coach who is never satisfied? Or an old man sitting in a cloud?
What would it mean if instead God desired to be nearer to you—not as a coach or a king but as a father—a perfect father who never wants you to live a day without His blessing?
Our view of God is important. It informs everything about who we are and who we’re becoming. If we have a flawed view of God, then we will have a flawed view of life.
In his new book Not Forsaken: Finding Freedom as Sons & Daughters of a Perfect Father, national bestselling author Louie Giglio, author of Goliath Must Fall and co-founder of Passion City Church and the Passion Conference, Louie points us to a God who is not absent but available and ready to shower us with His approval and love. This has radical significance for the very foundations of the Christian faith.
And now, Not Forsaken is available for prisoners, who have a great need for a connection to God as a perfect father.
A FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS
In the United States, 2.7 million youth have a parent in prison. Children raised in fatherless homes are three times more likely to go to prison.
Because prison affects the relationships of so many fathers and their children, it can be difficult for those in prison to grasp the radical truth that no matter what our situation, we are not defined by our pasts but by the love of a perfect Father. God wants all of us—those who are in prison and those who are not—to experience His unique, unconditional love and to live in the freedom, abundance, and blessing He freely gives. Our hearts are transformed by Him and we are free to rest in the identity, value, and plan God has given us.
