About

Summary

Although the title of this book is 'Waking up the sleeping giant', it does not narrate a fairy tale about a beautiful princess who marries the most charming and rich prince, after succeeding to run away from a giant that himself wanted to marry the princess. This book is about the reality of the ‘sleeping giant’, and the consequence it brings to today’s society.
‘Waking up the sleeping giant’ is a challenge to be taken up by many people. If this giant really wakes up, society will have a chance to experience a breath of fresh air that gives life a worthy cause and a meaningful reason to live. One might ask but who is this sleeping giant? What does this sleeping giant have to offer if upon wakening, the world can be a better place to live in?
The sleeping giant represents all those who proclaim that they are Christians, but through their lives hardly proclaim the Good News... they are ‘lukewarm’ in their faith.
The aim of this book is to reach out to this sleeping giant and to gently provoke and inspire the giant to wake up. This book proposes to make this giant stand up and be a witness of God’s love to society.

Introduction

When I was young and, I imagine, every little kid would have passed through a similar experience such as mine, I would have my mum read stories to me. On most occasions, these stories would relate to some sort of fantasy, with kings and queens involved in some sort of mystery and magic. When I got married, my wife and I did the same with our own kids. These were special moments which we will treasure forever.

Although the title of this book is 'Waking up the sleeping giant', it does not narrate a fairy tale about a beautiful princess who marries the most charming and rich prince, after succeeding to run away from a giant that himself wanted to marry the princess. This book is about the reality of the ‘sleeping giant’, and the consequence it brings to today’s society.

Waking up the sleeping giant’ is a challenge to be taken up by many people. If this giant really wakes up, society will have a chance to experience a breath of fresh air that gives life a worthy cause and it gives every person a more meaningful reason to live. One might ask but who is this sleeping giant? What does this sleeping giant have to offer if, upon wakening, the world can be a better place to live in?

This sleeping giant can refer to you, to a family member of yours or maybe to some of your friends. The sleeping giant could represent Christians who, although they do good things in their lives by being active in the church and in the community around them, are still not doing God’s will in their lives. The sleeping giant can be those of us who in the moment of truth to proclaim the Good News, to be witnesses in society and go against the current, eventually will not stand up as Christians and defend their morals and values.

The sleeping giant represents all those who proclaim that they are Christians, but through their lives hardly proclaim the Good News… they are ‘lukewarm’ in their faith.

The aim of this book is to reach out to this sleeping giant and to gently provoke and inspire the giant to wake up. This book proposes to make this giant stand up and he himself become a witness of God’s love to society.

I hope that while reading this book you will enjoy this journey, and that reading it will help increase your
