The Comeback: It's Not too Late and You're Never too Far Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

I have personally experienced redemption, grace, & a miracle that Louie Giglio writes about in his book The Comeback. In Dec 2015, I was given a devastating end of life diagnosis with no effective treatment or cure. We had flown thousands of miles and sought the best medical advice. My immune system and body was shutting down and we were told to prepare and "make the most" of the time I had left. I didn't even know how to tell my 8 year old son how much I longed to see his 9th birthday. This book & scripture gave me hope in the face of death. As I started writing letters and making videos for my son to have in the years to come, God told me to STOP! I reread The Comeback & Jeremiah 33. God wasn't finished with me yet! I never went through any treatment or had a "medical cure". Well, over 2 years later, I am getting healthier, my body is in remission and I've seen my son's 9th & 10th birthdays! When I originally wrote this review, I honestly thought it would be a few last heartfelt words to impart hope in a hopeless situation. I am living proof that WE ALL have a Comeback, whether on Earth or in eternity. If you are reading this right now, know that this is written just for you! God placed this heavy on my heart to remind you that you are not alone, He sees you and knows your every hurt. Right now might feel like the end of something, but something new and great will be born from what you are enduring right now. If you haven't read The Comeback, I urge you to read it and refresh your heart and spirit through the word of God. HE is the ultimate comeback story and we are all precious to him. Maybe God allowed me to experience so much pain to write my original review, yet "comeback" 2 and a half years later to tell you this. When you feel the hope this book powerfully imparts through God in your life, amazing, unimaginable things will happen! I'm living proof!

I am a little too old to have ever experienced a Passion Conference, and I only have heard Louie speak once. But I am so thankful that he wrote this book! He is honest and vulnerable and tells story after story about the sovereignty of God. Through this book Louie writes and teaches the reader in a way that is Biblical and refreshing. This isn't a "If God is for us then you can start a business and God will bless it incredibly" type of book. Louie is quick to tell us that your comeback might not mean a healing of your cancer. Maybe your comeback won't happen on this side of eternity. He writes, "A disservice is done by any brand of Christianity that promises there's always going to be a better road ahead or insists that your circumstances will change or claims everything is going to work out right and all your wildest dreams will come true every time." Amen, Louie!
If you doubt you could ever do anything useful for God, this book is for you. If you need a fresh start after you find your dreams crashed, this book is for you. Louie tells stories from people he knows, he tells personal stories, and he tells Biblical stories like Joseph, the parting of the Red Sea, Abraham, Paul, Peter, and many more. Louie constantly points us to the glory of God. To the fact that making our life count for the glory of God is all that matters. You don't hear him talk about how big his church is or how many books he has written. Louie shares failures and successes in this book and always points to God. To hear the story of the Passion Conference that was almost cancelled because of rain or Louie's academic failures and Georgia State or his approach to his "copy guy" job are awesome. And the story of how God birthed the Passion Conferences is worth the price of the book right there. I loved the chapter called "When Dreams Are Dashed," "Never Too Late," and "Jesus Is Enough." Louie tells us honestly that there won't always be happy endings to our comeback stories- at least not here on earth. But he points us to Christ and that if all you have is Jesus then you have all you need! Louie talks about how God's plans rarely mirror ours. "God isn't interested in giving anyone a detailed road map to life." And he mentions that while pointing us to the truths of the Exodus and also shares personal stories about his road map to ministry that was going to include a couple years of student ministry at Baylor. But God had other things in mind. Part of the book is also a wonderful treatment of Psalm 37:3-5 that is helpful and encouraging and full of some applications from Louie's past.
I encourage you to read this book. As someone who reads David Platt, John Piper, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Donald Whitney, Russell Moore, Kyle Idlemon, Tim Keller, Kevin DeYoung, and more, I encourage you to get this book. I am so thankful for Louie's ministry and this book. I felt like the Lord was ministering to me and speaking to me.
This work is testimony to God’s work in our lives, and Louie Giglio makes the case for Christ compelling and irresistible.
The message is one for the ages, and one for everyone to hear, no matter where you are in life. It will bless you if you let it.
I highly recommend this book!
