Malcolm Gladwell explores the concept of being at a disadvantage in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his new book, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants. His premise is that weakness is not always what it seems.
Gladwell combines stories, history, research and psychology to draw his conclusions.
All these tools lead to the same conclusion as the gospel.
Weakness can be a strength.
This book uses different means and methods, yet arrives at a similar connection to the message we explore on NoSuperHeroes.
It is not always about being bigger, better, faster, or stronger. In my book Death of the Modern Superhero:How Grace Breaks our Rules, I explore how the gospel of grace breaks many of the rules we are taught through society. Gladwell does the same thing.
He starts with the story of David and Goliath.
