I get the message.

I get the message and agree with the context but I found it a little hard to listen to the author/narrator. I found it was overly embellished and hard to listen to after an hour or so. Would have been better read by an accomplished narrator.

Excellent and not for the faint of faith

Mcmanus really delves into what it took (and takes) to follow Jesus. Not learn a religion, just follow Jesus. If you're tired of the message of "be a good boy and God will smile on you" then this is the book for you.

Deep Drafts of Life

This book was to me like deep breaths of air on a mountain top. Deep because it strikes to the heart. But unpolluted and shockingly crisp like mountian air, reminding me of what I thought I had to put up with as normal.

Wow!

This book is fabulous! I've read it twice through already & loved it even more after the second read. The information is so important to me because it verified what other barbarians in their love for Christ go through mentally & what can happen when when you stop listening to God's voice from within.

wow

Every western Christian should read this book. It is so gently firm in the way it challenges.
