Publisher's Description

Before You Die,
Live the Life
You Were Born
To Live.


When you come to the end of your days, you will not measure your life based on success and failures. All of those will eventually blur together into a single memory called "life."

What will give you solace is a life with nothing left undone. One that’s been lived with relentless ambition, a heart on fire, and with no regrets.

On the other hand, what will haunt you until your final breath is who you could have been but never became and what you could have done but never did.

The Last Arrow is your roadmap to a life that defies odds and alters destinies. Discover the attributes of those who break the gravitational pull of mediocrity as cultural pioneer and thought leader Erwin McManus examines the characteristics of individuals who risked everything for a life they could only imagine. Imagine living the life you were convinced was only a dream. 

We all begin this life with a quiver full of arrows.

Now the choice is yours. Will you cling to your arrows or risk them all, opting to live until you have nothing left to give?

Time is short. Pick up The Last Arrow and begin the greatest quest of your life.

Editorial Reviews

ECPA bestseller

"One of the best books I’ve ever read. The Last Arrow will inspire you to make the most of the life you’ve been given and create the life you’ve always wanted."
—Jon Gordon, author of The Carpenter and Training Camp, JonGordon.com

"The Last Arrow throws wide the window to what God always intended for you…a life of nothing wasted and nothing held back. Each page reveals another mindset that undermines destiny. In Erwin’s words, ’When you choose to live, you become a source of life.’ It is time to stop burying talents and hoarding arrows. It is not too late to dust off your bow, take aim and shoot with all that is within you."
—Lisa Bevere, New York Times Bestselling Author, Cofounder Messenger International

"I have never interacted with Erwin where he did not move me and capture my heart. His call in this book is one more example. He wakes us up where we need it, and pushes us past lack of clarity and through the unavoidable fear of truly spending our lives well. Thanks once again, my friend!"
—Dr. Henry Cloud, Psychologist and Author

"Erwin McManus is a passionate, courageous, and genuine man, and I am thankful to have the rare privilege to encounter him. In his latest book he writes as he has lived. The Last Arrow is a peek into the very threads of Erwin’s journey; threads that has been woven into the fabric of his very life and story. For me. And for you. And for all of us who endeavor to leave more behind than we have taken from this life. The pages of this book will poke you. In fact, they will prod you to live with eternal intention and fight beyond the tyranny of the mundane that we can all become so captive to. Truth and vulnerability make this message catching, compelling, and encouragingly dangerous. You can’t read this book and stay the same."
—Judah Smith, Lead Pastor of The City Church NY Times best-selling author of Jesus Is _.

    When I leave this world, I want to leave a hole in it from where my life counted. I want to be missed. I want people to come to my funeral because in some way I touched their life. I want to know that my life counted. That is why The Last Arrow: Save Nothing for the Next Life, written by Erwin Rachael McManus, resonated with me. This book is a combination of personal stories experienced by the author with sound teaching. It is about making your life count and how that is accomplished.

    McManus is the pastor of Mosaic, the community of faith in Los Angeles, and is probably best known for his book The Barbarian Way. His books have sold over a million copies worldwide and he is a nationally sought after speaker. I heard him speak many years ago at a Promise Keepers meeting for men.

    The premise of this book comes from the Old Testament story in 2 Kings 13 where King Jehoash, the King of Israel, goes before the dying prophet Elisha after his kingdom has been threatened by Amaziah, King of Judah. You will need to read the Scripture to get the whole story, but when Jehoash is told to take the arrows in his quiver and strike the ground, he only strikes the ground three times. This angers the prophet who desired for the king to strike the ground five to six times because by striking it only three times only partial victory was assured. The prophet felt as if the king left something on the table. He felt the king settled for less.

    McManus feels that this translates to us as Christians in that we too leave things unfinished and never rise to our full potential. He states that we should die with our quivers empty because we have given our all in this life.

    Ironically McManus goes back into the life of the prophet Elisha himself to prove what a life of striking the last arrow looks like. Perhaps that is why Elisha is so angry at the king for only striking his arrows three times. The books takes you from the calling of the prophet Elisha, through his life, to his death, and to after he has died. It catalogs what made the prophet Elisha so effective that even after his death, he made a difference.

    Throughout his teaching McManus introduces us to some extraordinary people that are scattered all over the world. He weaves their lives with the example of the prophet to teach us how we can live such a life. The author also tells personal stories of his own adventures including recently being diagnosed with cancer himself.

    The book is 224 pages but easily read. It has a great flow to it and the stories keep you reading wanting more. I found myself stopping only to take time to tweet out a quote taken from the book. There are plenty of tweetable quotes.

    My overall impression of the book is that this is a powerful book that could be a game changer in the life of a reader. It is challenging. Probably my favorite two chapters were chapter 7 entitled Stand Your Ground and chapter 8 entitled Find Your People. I will go back to those chapters time and again. The price of the book is $22.99 which seems a little high but that is why we have book discounter sites for right? I had just a few moments in the book where my personal theology cringed just a bit but overall it was sound. If you want to do some heart work in your own life, then pick up this book today.

    I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."

    First off, I must say this book was provided to me free of charge from the publisher. I have purchased a copy besides that to share with a friend. We can all gain value by spending some time in these pages, searching for an answer to a question that perhaps we didn't even know before reading this! I have felt like I just was missing something to reach my potential in the Lord's will for me, but didn't know what it was! I found my answer here! I realize now that while doing things with all my passion is what I thought I was doing, I really wasn't because I was missing a very important ingredient -- "my people"! The ancient African saying :"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far go together" has become very important to me. I love the thought "Your best future is waiting in your deepest relationships." Thank you Erwin McManus for bringing this truth to light for all of us! It has made a significant difference in my life! I look forward to finding my people and being everything God has called me to be!

    From beginning to end McManus calls for expecting God to give His best. Reminding the audience that God doesn't give everything, every time without us giving to Him our complete devotion and expecting more.

    Full of personal stories, and stories from the lives of those McManus has met along the path of life you can sense that is value to expecting more than average. The connections to the pages of the Bible show that God has done more than people have expected too many times for us to play it safe.

    So strike the arrows, not once, not twice, not three times, but over and over until there are none left.

    There is a story in the Old Testament that is the idea behind this book. It is the story of the prophet Elisha having King Joash shoot an arrow, then beat the rest of the arrows on the ground. The king was chastised for not beating the arrows on the ground more times than he did.

    The idea behind the book, and the description of the book intrigued me enough to apply to be in the launch team, and the book did not disappoint. Using his scare with cancer and some other events in his life, McManus has written a great book addressing this issue of holding nothing back as we live our lives for Christ.

    The book is well written, and is very convicting. I am sure I am not the only person who tends to hold back, and this book is all about doing the complete opposite. I found the book to be a quick and easy read, though one that definitely makes you think.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review,.
