Publisher's Summary

Choices unlock divine moments. Pastor and author Erwin Raphael McManus invites listeners to choose a life of blazing urgency.

Are you willing to risk failure? Are you ready to get in the game? You may stumble, but you will find yourself falling forward, propelled toward the God-inspired adventure he intends you to live. Using the biblical characters of Saul and Jonathan during Israel’s war with the Philistines (1 Samuel 13 and 14), Chasing Daylight (formerly titled Seizing Your Divine Moment) demonstrates the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure and living one of apathy and missed opportunity. While Saul rested beneath a pomegranate tree, Jonathan seized the divine moment and redirected the future of Israel. McManus uses Jonathan’s example to artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer’s heart, what he calls "the Jonathan factor":

  • Taking initiative
  • Accepting uncertainty
  • Stewarding influence
  • Embracing risk
  • Continuing to advance
  • Creating impact
  • Moving in obedience
  • Awakening potential

We have but one life. We are given one opportunity to pursue our dreams and fulfill our divine purpose. Every moment counts, and we must engage them with fierceness and zeal. In Chasing Daylight, Erwin Raphael McManus offers the tools to put an end to passive observation and start seizing the raw, untapped potential of your life with God.

Empowering Read

At times became a little intense and deep , had to replay and relisten. All believers who struggle need to listen and absorb Erwins thoughts and words.

Special book by special author

All of Erwin's stuff is transformative IMO. His books have a similar theme - a mindset of not accepting a dry and lifeless religious form of Christianity, challenging to take risks and really enter the drama of true Christian living. I came from an intellectual, knowledge-based "Bible" church that fostered a slow death in my soul. Erwin has been awakening me to the true way God intends us to live.

Content good. Narrator often difficult to hear.

Although the content is good I found the narrator softly spoken and irregular in his volume, making him very difficult to follow while listening in my car.
