by Erwin McManus
Release the Untamed Faith Within
Unleashed gives a call to escape a tame Christianity and become original, powerful, untamed Christians—just as Christ intended.
Author 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. Unleashed is a call to escape “civilized” Christianity and become original, powerful, untamed Christians—just as Christ intended.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Christianity was never meant to be safe. If we look at the culture in the early days of Christianity, Christians were considered the fringe element. They were barbarians that didn’t go along with the culture of the day. They weren’t afraid to suffer or be martyred for what they believed. Unfortunately Christianity in America has been turned into a “safe” religion. We’re afraid to go against the flow or be considered radical, fanatic, or barbarians. This book which I highly recommend calls us to unleash our faith to go back to the barbarian way of Christianity in the past.
