Book Overview

Two thousand years later the call to follow Christ has been repacked to be smooth and trouble-free, filled with opportunity and promise but lacking risk, passion, and sacrifice. Is this really what Jesus died for? If He chose the way of the cross, where would He hesitate leading us? Is it possible that to follow Jesus is to live your life completely unleashed? Jesus never made a pristine call to a proper or safe religion. Jesus beckons His followers...

Believe again anew!

I have to reccommend to you a great little book I just read. It is called "The Barbarian Way" by Erwin McManus. I reieved it for my birthday last week and can not give it a high enough reccomendation. It focus is on the fact that the christian faith should not be the simple quiet protected life. Thatb the call to be a christian is a call to risk, to live on the edge, with danger, trials and troubles. That the churh has become domesticated and it lack's appeal because of that. It is out by Thomas Nelson ISBN 0785264329 Not only do I reccomend it, but they guarantee it, if you buy it and are not satisfied they will replace your money. Some quick quotes. "The claim to believe is simply not enough. The call of Jesus is one to action" p.5 "Perhaps the tragedy of our time is that such an overwhelming number of us who declare Jesus as Lord have become domesticated - or, if you will, civilized. We have lost the simplicity of our early faith. Beyond that, we have lost the passion and power of that raw, untaimed, and primal faith." p.12 "The barbarian way is abour love, intimacy, passion, and sacrifice. Barbarians love to live and live to love." p. 13 "The call of Jesus is far more barbaric that either of those. It is a call to live in this world as citizens of an entirely different kingdom." p.32 "your life is unique before God, and your path is yours and yours alone." p. 37 "Just do whatever Jesus calls you to do the moment it is clear to you. Do not procrastinate; do not hesitate; do not deviate from whatever course of action He calls you to." p.53 "When you join the barbarian tribe, you begin to live your life with your eyes and heart wide open. When the spirit of God envelops your soul, your spiri comes alive, and everything changes for you. You are no lobger the same." p.69 .... For those who liked John Eldreges "Wild at Heart" or "Waking the Dead" you will love this book. Take a risk and pick it up, you will either be challanged or angry. If your angry you can get your money back. If your challanged, who know's where it will lead you!

The Barbarian Way

In this offering by Erwin Raphael McManus, we as Christians are challenged to blow down the walls of religion and enter into the battle for souls. We are reminded, if not told for the first time, that the life that we have chosen can present challenges that are unreasonable, uncomfortable, out of reach and unfair to us. McManus' provides biblical examples of God's calling ordinary people to be His messengers to the lost through their faith and His provision. After reading "The Barbarian Way" you will not be satisfied with just going to church on Sunday.

Awesome, great book but controversial.

Give this to anyone who has been kicked in the guts by religon and longs for a better understanding of Christian Spirituality. This book really unsettled me, but finally someone has spoken about the idea of true faith,and the Author - Erwin R Mcmanus is not a "minister" - so he is not limited by the fear of affending someone. What is happening is a sincere turn towards a reverential understanding of what it means to believe, serve others and follow Jesus without the pretenses & institutional idea's of structure Church fellowship which cause feelings of obligation. I remember reading this before Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell and reccomend both books 1 after the other. The Barbian Way looks closely at John the Baptist and even considers the doubt John encountered when he was in jail. Jesus never rescued John, the way John might have wanted or even expected Him to do...Erwin encourages us to think about what this means in our own faith. GS

Excellent call to break the chains of mediocrity

The Barbarian Way is a spirit inspired book, a call to break away from a mundane and lukewarm faith (if such a faith can even be called faith at all.) It is an appeal to cast away ties and allegiances to a domesticated faith of compromise with the status quo of the Christian culture. Well-written and filled with humor as well as scripture and anecdotes, it is a recommended read for all believers who want to be refined by the refiner's fire.

Erwin is always a superb read

One would think that eventually the well that we all long to drink from would dry up. One might also think that our taste might change and we would require a different liquid to quench our thirst but both theories are proven wrong with Erwin McManus' latest book "The Barbarian Way" This man knows all too well the average Christians tendency to live life in a stagnant state. In trying to share specific details about the book would only ruin the individual experience of the reader. "Seizing Your Divine Moment" as well as "Unstoppable Force" are both life changing reads. Life could be so sweet if more authors were as spiritually refreshing and challenging as McManus.
