The artisan soul : crafting your life into a work of art by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"McManus demonstrates that we all carry within us the essence of an artist. We all need to create, to be a part of a process that brings to the world something beautiful, good, and true, in order to allow our souls to come to life. It's not only the quality of the ingredients we use to build our lives that matter, but the care we bring to the process itself. Just like baking artisan bread, it's a process that's crafted over time. And God has something to say about how we craft our lives. With poignant, inspirational stories and insights from art, life, history, and scripture interspersed throughout, McManus walks readers through the process of crafting a life of beauty and wonder."--Publisher
The last arrow : save nothing for the next life by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine doing everything you were meant to do. Then, with a full heart, taking your final breath. That is a life fully lived. And that is the bold invitation of The Last Arrow. When the king of Israel met with the ailing prophet Elisha, he was told to grab some arrows and strike the ground before him. He did so three times, then stopped even though more arrows were left. History records the dire results of his partial effort. Often, we also have arrows in our hands, blaming God for our partial victories when it is we who gave up too soon. To all of us who long for more, but settle for less, and give up too soon, Erwin Raphael McManus drives an arrow into the ground and declares, "Never settle. It's all or nothing. Save nothing for the next life!" Yes, this is costly. You will face great risks. And there can be no back-up plan. Everything is required, including your last arrow. Yet it is the only way to pursue life's deepest joys and greatest battles--with a full heart and an empty quiver. --! From publisher's description

Soul cravings : an exploration of the human spirit by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We can spend our whole lives trying to satisfy the one insatiable part of our being, our soul craving. Our capacity for spiritual experience both proves our need for something greater than ourselves and leaves us wanting when we fill it with anything but God. Soul Cravings is a powerful, down-to-earth exposition that interprets our need for community, meaning, and destiny as common sense apologetics pointing to the existence of and our need for God. The book will deeply stir the reader to consider and chase after the spiritual implications of their soul's deepest longings
The barbarian way : unleash the untamed faith within by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erwin McManus wasn't raised in a Christian home, so when he came to Christ as a college student, he didn't know the rules of the "religious club." He didn't do well in Shakespeare courses, so he didn't really understand the KJV Bible he was given either. But he did understand that prayer was a conversation, and he learned to talk to God and wait for answers. Erwin's way was passionate and rough around the edges-a sincere, barbaric journey to Christ. Barbaric Christians see Jesus differently than civilized Christians. They see disciples differently, and they see Christ's mission differently. The Barbarian Way is a call to escape "civilized" Christianity and become original, powerful, untamed Christians-just as Christ intended

Uprising : a revolution of the soul by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are all, as Erwin Raphael McManus states, broken pieces of the image of God. And as Christians, too often we talk about God's ability to change lives without fully understanding how to access that power. The reason is simple: we ourselves have never been radically transformed. McManus explains how many people unknowingly block God from changing us and teaches readers the "texture of the heart" required to unleash God's transforming power within us. He also demonstrates the passion and purpose that lie ahead when we undertake the journey that leads us to the true source, the very character of God. Stories from McManus's personal life and ministry, paired with biblical teaching and insights, will challenge readers to break free from negative habits, destructive emotions, and other strongholds that hinder lasting transformation and to turn toward a life marked by enlightenment, nobility, and virtue. --From publisher's description
Seizing your divine moment : dare to live a life of adventure by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this inspiring book, Erwin McManus uses the biblical account of Israel's war with the Philistines (1 Samuel 13 and 14) and the characters of Saul and Jonathan to demonstrate the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure, and living one of apathy and missed opportunity. In the midst of a less-than-hopeful battle, Saul-who should have been leading-rested beneath a pomegranate tree as Jonathan seized the divine moment that would impact the future of Israel. Through this story McManus artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer's heart, what he calls "the Jonathan factor." Using powerful examples from his own life and ministry, along with fresh biblical teaching, McManus asserts that God crafts divine moments specific to each of us-priceless opportunities for us to actively engage in God's big-picture plan. Apathy and apprehension prevent us from being all we are meant to be for God's kingdom. But by developing the characteristics McManus outlines, Christians can move from mundane to miraculous living
Chasing daylight : dare to live a life of adventure by Erwin Raphael McManus( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chasing Daylight is a call to live a life of blazing urgency. We have but one life. We are given one opportunity to pursue our dreams and fulfill our divine purpose. Every moment counts, and we must engage them with fierceness and zeal. Put an end to passive observation, paralyzed by the need for perfect opportunity, and start seizing the raw, untapped potential of your life with God. The Old Testament account of Jonathan and Saul in 1 Samuel reveals the contrasts and consequences of living a life of purpose and adventure vs. one of apathy and missed opportunity. In the midst of a less-than-hopeful battle, Saul rested beneath a tree as Jonathan seized the divine moment that would impact the future of Israel. Through this story, McManus artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer's heart, what he calls "the Jonathan factor." McManus's personal stories and fresh biblical teaching will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and move from mundane to miraculous living as you actively engage in God's plan! - Publisher
