“Unleashed” written by Erwin McManus inspires readers to live a life that follows Christ with reckless abandon or to live the “Barbarian” way. Mc Manus states, the “Barbarian way” is to give your heart to God, who can make you fully alive, with an untamed faith. He describes this as a narrow journey that only few will take, but it will lead you to a life completely unleashed. This book is a very quick read and easily can be read in one sitting. One of my favorite quotes “ the driving purpose behind this barbarian revolt is to liberate every person who longs to find freedom in God.” How many of us long to find freedom in God? We must remove all the junk that keeps us from God in order to do so. Television, internet, inappropriate movies, language, lust, it all keeps us from living a life unleashed, we must remove every obstacle that hinders us.
This book gave me a good dose of reality and helped me looked at areas in my life where I need to remove obstacles because they are hindrance. I recommend this book to anyone who is trying to live faith out in a different way or to anyone who is seeking of living the cookie cutter Christian life. This will change your entire perspective. It won’t be easy to live a life like this and Jesus doesn’t promise any easy life, but an abundant one, unleashed.
