Item Description...
"Dare to Live a Life of Adventure"

Erwin McManus trains readers to live ¿bigger¿ lives by recognizing¿and stepping into¿divine moments of opportunity to become truly involved in what God is doing in the world.

In this inspiring book, Erwin McManus uses the biblical account of Israel¿s war with the Philistines (1 Samuel 13 and 14) and the characters of Saul and Jonathan to demonstrate the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure, and living one of apathy and missed opportunity. In the midst of a less-than-hopeful battle, Saul¿who should have been leading¿rested beneath a pomegranate tree as Jonathan seized the divine moment that would impact the future of Israel. Through this story McManus artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer¿s heart, what he calls ¿the Jonathan factor.¿

Using powerful examples from his own life and ministry, along with fresh biblical teaching, McManus asserts that God crafts divine moments specific to each of us¿priceless opportunities for us to actively engage in God¿s big-picture plan. Apathy and apprehension prevent us from being all we are meant to be for God¿s kingdom. But by developing the characteristics McManus outlines, Christians can move from mundane to miraculous living.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Discerning God's will can't be done sitting still  Jan 3, 2005
McManus does an excellent job in this book defining what "God's will" means. So often being in God's will is taught as a place of comfort and security when in truth (biblical truth) it's far from it. Being in God's will is being out of our own will (initially) and we are uncomfortable with the thought of not controlling, not predicting the outcome of our own future. McManus goes on to say that being in God's will is a "dangerous place to be".

If you wonder what God's will for your life is or know someone struggling with that question this will serve as an excellent read! Consider this book along with John Ortberg's "If You Want to Walk on Water You Gotta Get Out of the Boat". I can't wait to read more of Mcmanus's work!

"...anybody could be so gullible as to accept this gibberish! amazing...and to think ERWIN (who should find some time and do a little research first) is actually making money off you poor souls! oh, the pity. I give it a one, but only because it has print in it."

I would say....what is the fruit of your life in the kingdom? Erwin lives what he preaches, and lives are changed because of it. This book totally changed my focus from sitting back, waiting on God to "find me" to moving out and seeking where God is already at work, and joining in.

if you need a pep talk...  Sep 17, 2004
This book was the right thing at the right time for me. As I was deciding to leave insitutional ministry and launch out and plant a church, I picked up Seizing Your Divine Moment. During one of the scariest times of my life, Erwin McManus took scripture and applied it in such a way that I was not only encouraged, but I was energized.

I highly recommend this book to those who are thinking about their lives and wondering "What's next?"...and who might even be a little afraid of the answer.

To live or merely exist, that is the question  Apr 30, 2004
There's a lot to chew on in this book. After the chewing, I find myself freshly inspired to take the gifts and opportunities God gives me and do something that matters. McManus offers a helpful perspective on the decisions we make and the situations we encounter each day. His ideas make sense, are validated by dozens of stories from his own experiences, and are consistent with what we see happening in the Bible.

Here's an example. McManus was in a room with a man recently let out of prison. There was nobody else around. The other man pulled a knife which he had already used on someone else's throat (remember, this is not fiction). Seems to me like a good time to run. But McManus shocked both men in the room by saying, "William, that knife is going to send you to hell!" Though the tension was rising, it was now startled and derailed. This doesn't mean YOU shouldn't run if someone pulls a knife on YOU. I think the point is that we all have moments when we can either slink away and miss a chance to do something good, or we can stand firm and work with God as he works to penetrate the globs of darkness we bump into every day.

Throughout this book, McManus weaves a Bible story about Jonathan. Jonathan was the son of Israel's first king, King Saul. At one point, King Saul's army was wildly outnumbered and likely to be destroyed by the Philistines. Jonathan decided that God was on Israel's side, so he acted on that faith, seized his divine moment, and triggered a rout of the Philistine army. While not all of our experiences will match the dramatics of Jonathan's, the principle holds true. We can succumb to fear, take the course of least resistance, and accomplish little. Or, we can recognize that, as Henry Blackaby wrote, "God is always at work around you" and "invites you to become involved with Him in His work."

Thoreau wrote that most men lead lives of quiet desperation. I don't want to be one of those men. McManus gives me Bible-based ammunition to fight boldly, moment by moment, against a drab, irrelevant existence. If this resonates with you at all, then I recommend a slow and thoughtful reading of this book.
