Summary

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.

Uninspiring

The book's title and tagline promise more than is delivered. I found it repetitive and rarely grabbed my attention.

Being Christian

Very positive and shows what being Christian is all about. Its not how many times they laugh at you saying your a Loser, a Failure, a Liar or a Cheat. It how many times you get back up and willing to take them on again, again, and again. Remember as Christians you follow a Radical Man, not one caving in to the ways of the world. To steal a quote from the movie God is Not Dead 3. "God is Good, all the time. All the time God is Good." take care and God Bless

excellent and spiritually uplifting

Christian or not once you read this book you are in for an awakenong. Faith, hope, love all of these are shown in many biblical and secular comeback stories. after you read this you no doubt will be able to notice when you need, have received or are experiencing a blessing and a COMEBACK!

So fantastic!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It is so uplifting and encouraging. I feel I have been given a different way of finding the Comeback or the good that may come from an illness or tragedy.
Have recommended to several people already!!

What a good book

I'm a youth director and this book is full of such encouraging stories! I am a fan of Louie. So, I might be a little bias, but I think this is well worth the read. Thanks Louie for sharing your heart. I will see you at Passion 2017!

You can be the comeback kid

Louie Giglio does a fabulous job of bringing stories to life to help us know that we can be a come back kid.

He draws real life stories and parallels them to Biblical truths of how individuals can come back from tragedy, illness, generational bondage, betrayal and our own self destructive behaviors. Because Jesus is alive.

Jesus is the ultimate comeback kid who defeated death. And because he loves me, he will help me come back too.

I love listening to this book and will likely read the print copy so I can take notes for future reference.

Great book and recommended for that person in your life who could use a bit of hope and a vision of their comeback story.
