Item Description...
Renowned speaker and church visionary Erwin McManus unfolds the eight essential attributes needed to achieve the life of your dreams.

Shuffling and half asleep, so many people coast through the day. From class to class, home to work, and stuck in traffic in between, many have yet to tap into a passionate reason for living. It's not that this life is bad, but it's not the life of their dreams.

In Wide Awake, Erwin McManus opens readers' eyes to see the eight crucial attributes of those who achieve the life of their dreams. It is every person's responsibility to discover and develop the gifts given to them by God. McManus writes, "The future is not waiting for us, it is waiting within us." The world is desperate for the best each person can offer-if they would only relentlessly pursue and achieve it.

The eight characteristics are: Dream, Explore, Adapt, Create, Invest, Enjoy, Focus, and Expect.

Publishers Description

The alarm sounds. Your feet hit the floor and carry you into another day. But what does that day hold for you? Will you be punching your card at work, catching up on TV at home, and crashing into bed before you rinse and repeat the next day? Or will you dare to dig deep and discover the incredible potential lying dormant within us all?

In "Wide Awake," renowned speaker and church visionary Erwin Raphael McManus challenges us to put an end to all the sleepwalking and settling, for each of us was created by God for a reason. He has called you to live as Jesus did--a heroic life, void of monotony, teeming with danger, adventure, and the unknown. Living wide awake is about realizing that the world desperately needs you to live up to your potential.

There is a future that needs to be created, and it is waiting for us all to wake up and get out of bed. The alarm has sounded, and it is time to shake off the slumber.

It's time to live, to create, to imagine, to dream . . . W"ide Awake."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Pursuing your dreams  Dec 5, 2009
The great strength of Erwin McManus is his ability to present issues in an unexpected and compelling manner. Unfortunately, this strength is in fairly short supply in this book. The book does contain some creative and helpful content, but it has the appearance of a book written in a hurry. There are plenty of typographical errors, and I found the subject matter somewhat rambling and at times dull.

The book has ten key themes, each covered in a chapter. Awaken encourages us to find the hero inside us waiting to be awakened. Dream encourages us to dream with our eyes open. Discover encourages us to become an explorer. Adapt encourages us to get ready for change. Expect encourages us to see because we believe. Focus encourages us to see what others are missing. Create encourages us to become proactive. Enjoy encourages us to treat life as a gift. Invest encourages us to give our lives away to others. Imagine encourages us to live out the life of our dreams.

The ideas contained in the book are good ones, and I did not encounter any significant difficulties with the author's theology or philosophy. With some tighter editing, the contents could perhaps have been turned into quite a compelling book. As it is, though, I would recommend skipping this book and instead reading McManus's previous work, "Soul Cravings".

To each of His children God has given a task to accomplish in the days that remain before He returns or calls them home. Some call it a purpose, others a calling. McManus calls it a dream. And the dream that God assigns you may be seem significant in the world's eyes, bringing visibility and notoriety, or it may seem insignificant in the world's eyes and escape everyone's notice, except God's. The important first step is to determine in your own heart to pursue the dream that God gives you and not demand that God join your personal dream. At the end of the day, success will be measured by your faithfulness to God's leading.

For those who would dare to dream God's dream, McManus gives eight imperatives to follow: dream, discover, adapt, expect, focus, create, enjoy, and invest. And with each of these, McManus unpacks important principles: become a person of godly character; don't complain, find solutions to problems; adapt to circumstances without compromising convictions; learn to see from God's perspective, and others.

Well-written, McManus uses a lot of Scripture to draw out his ideas, from both Old and New Testaments. Lots of personal illustrations make the ideas live and breathe. McManus' years of leadership in a risk-taking, cutting-edge ministry have prepared him to write this book. I disagreed with a few of McManus' ideas and explanations but found most to be solid and challenging. Men and women who are mature and are mentoring younger believers should read this book, because the eight imperatives and their corresponding Bible passages will provide excellent talking points for them to discuss with those they mentor or disciple.

amazing clarity!  Apr 8, 2009
I've read several of McManus' books, but I was shocked even when I first started reading this one at how intensely relevant it was to me and my life in these current times! It was amazing, and the entire book kept me fully engaged. A wonderful read with amazing insights, expressed in a uniquely clear manner.
Center yourself in reality  Jan 19, 2009
I am actually glad to see a breed of new pastors who can reach a dying world by not preaching hell, fire and brimstone and making us aware of a lie that we are all broken down sinners. This is the reason many Christians fall by the wayside because we make it so hard to just believe that Yeshua came to give us a better life. We criticize how the new pastors are doing it but I applaud pastors like Joel Osteen and Erwin Raphael McManus. Wow! He caught my attention immediately by becoming human first and then gradually lifting those wings many of us don't know we have until we can see the horizon and how broad and beautiful and joyous it is supposed to be for us especially Christians. Christians are not giving the world hope; many are so angry so ready to find fault and I am sure Yeshua is responsible for bringing a new breed into this world. Let love rule because God is love and we are one with the God and Goddess (oh how we have forgotten her!) We are a mirror image once we let go of the sinner image; that is the reason why Yeshua died for us. Understand this and release your mind to take in the glory of the life itself! This book is excellent and I highly recommend it because I was one of the depressed being pushed down further by the church; sometimes you just have to walk this journey and ask for guidance; Spirit never fails, never judges you as a sinner but as a saint who has wings; so fly!
This book Rocks!  Nov 25, 2008
This was the first book that I've read from Erwin McManus and it's great. I've already purchased five additional copies to share and give to others!
