Before You Die,
Live the Life
You Were Born
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.
As I sit here, hands hovered over the keyboard wondering what to write about The Last Arrow, I am truly trying to digest what I just read.
Erwin McManus’ new book, The Last Arrow, goal is to get you to grab a hold of your life make it your own. He bases most of his book on when the King of Israel met with the prophet Elisha. How we need to finish the work that God calls us to do in out lives. Not just stop in the middle of it or when it gets hard.
While McManus’ book was suppose to be about encouraging one to break free and live the life one is suppose to live, it sometimes felt the McManus hour. Lots of stories about his life experiences.
While I found the book to be an easy read and at times encouraging, for me personally I would have liked more Bible tie ins. Don’t get me wrong he mentions the Bible, but that’s it, he just mentions it. There was no real digging deep or true application.
If you are looking for a book that is encouraging and motivating then this could be your book. If you are looking for something to help you dig into scripture…. this may not be your book. Overall not a bad book, just not one that I would read again.
