iDisciple Podcast: Not Forsaken
In today’s episode of the iDisciple podcast, David sits down with Louie Giglio to discuss his new book, Not Forsaken. David and Louie talk about what led Louie to write this book, statistics on the epidemic of fatherlessness in America, and what Louie hopes people will come to know as they read this book.
Louie Giglio is Pastor of Passion City Church and the Founder of the Passion movement, which exists to call a generation to leverage their lives for the fame of Jesus.
Since 1997, Passion has gathered collegiate-aged young people in events across the US and around the world. Notably, in 2017, more than 55,000 students gathered for Passion 2017 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome for one of the largest Jesus-focused collegiate events in history.
Each year, Passion continues to see 18-25 year olds fill venues across the nation in pursuit of lives lived for God's glory.
In addition to the collegiate gatherings of Passion Conferences, Louie and his wife Shelley lead the teams at Passion City Church, sixstepsrecords and the Passion Global Institute.
Louie is the author of national-bestseller Goliath Must Fall, The Comeback, The Air I Breathe, I Am Not But I Know I Am, and Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science, his first children's book.
