I heard Erwin McManus preach this message at a Willow Creek Leadership Summit a few years ago. It was a challenging message that I can remember parts of to this day. Evidently it is now in book form and Amazon has it: 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". Erwin McManus "serves as Lead Pastor of Mosaic, a uniquely innovative and international congregation in Los Angeles, California. A national and international strategist and speaker on culture, change, creativity and leadership, Erwin also serves as Distinguished Lecturer and Futurist for Bethel Theological Seminary".

This book was transformational for both my wife and I preparing for ministry...it's a great book...we just returned to it (now retitled UNLEASHED) for a small group we're in - I forgot how powerful his writing was...
