Giants: Legends & Lore of Goliaths is an interesting compilation on a curious subject - giants. But more importantly, focusing on what the Bible has to say about giants. This 24 paged, beautifully illustrated and interactive book walks the reader through the contemplative thought that perhaps mythology contains more truth than we realize!
"Was Polyphemus, the one-eyes giant whom Odysseus blinded, just a metaphor? Were the frost giants of Norse legend - sworn enemies of the gods - just symbols? Was the war between the Olympian gods and the Titans just a fable? Did David fight Goliath or was it a figment of his own imagination"
