    "Excellent and not for the faint of faith"

    Mcmanus really delves into what it took (and takes) to follow Jesus. Not learn a religion, just follow Jesus. If you're tired of the message of "be a good boy and God will smile on you" then this is the book for you.

    "Deep Drafts of Life"

    This book was to me like deep breaths of air on a mountain top. Deep because it strikes to the heart. But unpolluted and shockingly crisp like mountian air, reminding me of what I thought I had to put up with as normal.

    "One man's view "Adventurous""

    Hey this a refreshing look at the God at work. You might not agree with his opinion (which is ok) but it's a thrilling perspective to entertain an in some ways I believe that this book will help your see God in a way you haven't seen him before, draw a little closer to him then you have been before, and maybe do something for Him that is out of your comfort zone..
    Erwin is not trying to change history, he is trying to motivate you to get out and do something that actually makes a difference. Follow God's leading into the wild unknown, that Jesus is you adventure partner, and that living this life if by far anything from common.
    Enjoy the book grab a hold of key elements, and let the things you think is bunk go. An may our God lead you on a wild, dangerous adventure of following him with your gifts and talents no matter where He may lead you!

    "Great!!!!!"

    Words do not describe how wonderful Erwin McManus narrates his book. I have listened to The Barbarian Way about 4 times now over the last 2 years. Enjoyed it this last time as much as the first . Epic!

    "Very good book. Insightful and engaging! challenge"

    Insightful and engaging. Challenges me to seek and pursue a great abandonment to the purposes of God in order to bring pleasure to HIM.

    "Good Listen"

    I think everyone should read/listen to this book who call themselves Christians and see just how non-concerting we have become. This is a real kick in the pants in a great way. I highly recommend this book as you can tell.
