Publisher's Summary

Before you die,
Live the life
You were born
To live.

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 road map 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.

Critic Reviews

"I have never interacted with Erwin where he did not move me and capture my heart. His call in this book is one more example. He wakes us up where we need it, and pushes us past lack of clarity and through the unavoidable fear of truly spending our lives well. Thanks once again, my friend!" (Dr. Henry Cloud, psychologist and author)

Life changing

This book has challenged me in so many ways, to live the life God has called me to live and to be bold in every opinion I and leave nothing undone or unsaid but to strike the arrow till God says to stop and for no other reason, so that at the end of my life my quiver would be empty and I would have done what I was born to do. Thank You Edwin McManus for writing this book, I salute you for it.

The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the perfect example of using His last 🏹 to save the world from sin. We who are the believers & followers of JESUS should live that life that He lived... living life to the full!

A good slogan stretched into a book....

The title of the book is quite inspiring. "The Last Arrow - save nothing for the next life" great advice. You and I should give our all to this life.

However I couldn't get through this one because the author's voice/tone sounds like he is on the verge of a nervous breakdown or about to burst into tears at every sentence. Oh and he is pretty vague about how one should go about using all our "arrows" other than the fact that we should definitely use them (somehow).

I might be selling the book and the author short because it has loads of ecstatic reviews but for an audio book my first criterion is that it be at least listenable.

This one wasn't. AT ALL.

Will be returning.

The Last Arrow

From the start I was captured by the author. I was not familiar with him but am certain I will search out his other works. I have been challenged to do what is in me to do. My walk with Jesus has been challenging. Not for lack of love for my Savior but through so many relationships that have been skeptical and lacking courage to strike arrows. I am excited and encouraged to open myself up and pour out the gifts deposited in me for the sake of Gods kingdom. I WILL strike and strike and strike and strike and strike till I am spent and the enemy is silenced in what matters most to me. Thank you Erwin Raphael McManus. Thank you. May the healing purchased for you at the cross be made manifest in your body. Thank you again.

Word!

Encouragement for those who aren't afraid to go for God's best! If you have a tugging on your heart because you know you are destined for the kind of greatness only God can give you then this book is for you. It all comes down to glorifying Him.

Encouraging and Inspiring

More than a simple message, it builds a fire within and helped me realize the basic truth of the Scripture that we don't have because we do not ask. We don't ask big enough since we don't trust enough.

Seriously!

Trying to understand the reviews already provided, NO OFFENCE, but they probably provided free audibles for a positive review here. I mean, the Author keeps rambling on and on about nothing, his stories are completely unrelated and hardly insightful, he loves himself very much from the looks of it. Fair enough. But not for me, SORRY!
Returning ASAP

Battle Ready!

Challenging and insightful, loved having the author read the audiobook. Love Erwin's passion, great communicator. Challenges me to re-evaluate my life and how much time I spend living in the safe zone. Highly recommend!

Uninspiring

I kept waiting for the book to get going to tell me how O leave nothing for the next life. Instead there was an endless stream of anecdotes punctuated with an application of sorts. This book may work better in print but failed to deliver as an Audible book.
