Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Two thousand years later the call to follow Christ has been repackaged 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 choose the barbarian way?

Jesus never made a pristine call to a proper or safe religion. Jesus beckons His followers to a path that is far from the easy road. It is a path filled with adventure, uncertainty, and unlimited possibilities?the only path that can fulfill the deepest longings and desires of your heart.

This is the barbarian way: to give your heart to the only One who can make you fully alive. To love Him with simplicity and intensity. To unleash the untamed faith within. To be consumed by the presence of a passionate and compassionate God. To go where He sends you, no matter the cost.

    McManus is inspiring to people who long for a challenge and a call to something higher: a risky, magnificent adventure in Christ. Too many of us settle for a civilized faith in which the goal becomes a peaceful existence and the slogan is, "Don't rock the boat." But an unwillingness to take chances in obedience to Christ means we'll never experience the deeper joys and satisfactions of walking with Him. For those who want to encourage and inspire others to live courageously for Christ, this book can be very helpful.

    Great book for a men's study group or study in general. Only 4 chapters which makes it easy. The book is inspirational to live a life that is authentic, bold and descisive for Christ which goes back to the basics of the great commission in Matt. 28. It does not sugar coat the faith and lays out the reality of what it means to battle daily for God's kingdom using weapons of Love, fatih and hope. I enjoyed the book and it had tied in some great inspirational scripture.

    I read this book years ago, and it still encourages me and challenges me. And it makes we want to read the Bible so that I can know how to be like those true Barbarian, especially Jesus.

    I got this book because the Mosaic podcasts are so good. I found this book to be very dull. It had potential but it was never realized and to this second I'm not sure what the Barbarian Way really is. I would not recommend this book to someone.

    Refreshing....rekindles the "first love" of a new Christian, but in the context of growing in grace and truth and in a vital walk with the Lord here and now where you are planted...our whole family loved it and read it together for encouragement and prayer
