I have to admit it has been over five years since I’ve read this book, but this book, hands-down, was the most influential in my understanding of Jesus. Erwin McManus is one of my favorite pastors, and his work here helped ignite the very first fire for Christ in my life.
This book is all about understanding that Jesus wants followers who are passionate and, as Erwin says, “untamed” in their faith than they are religious. Erwin has a great testimony, being a native of El Salvador. He is now the pastor of Mosaic over in Los Angeles. His writing (and speaking) is extremely motivational, and the way he writes is so personable that you can’t help but relate and feel a deep warmth while you read his works. Couple this with the fact that he is writing about Jesus, and you get a book that helps you hunger like a barbarian for Him!
There’s not much else to write about this book other than it would have a great place in your library. If you have been feeling spiritually confused, stuck, or perhaps just wondering what Jesus really wants with Christians, this book is the answer.
