The key focus of Erwin's book revolves around the fact Jesus washed his disciples feet as he modeled servant-leadership to his followers. McManus argues this model still applies today. I agree. Too many books on leadership talk nothing of character, McManus turns this on its ear. His book is all about character and out of it you will be a better leader.
In having the privelege of seeing McManus practice what he preaches, this is a man who is a servant-leader. Erwin pastors a church in Los Angeles called Mosaic, and serves his church well. I cannot give this book a higher recommendation than 5 stars, but it really is a 10. A+
The best aspect of this book to me is how McManus communicates the reality of what is required of us to be successful Christians. It takes our best, it takes time, and it takes a lot of hard work, discipline, and effort. But, we are all capable of it. Through his Son, God has made it possible for us to follow Him along the straight and narrow path. McManus does an excellent job of describing this path, and how to navigate it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for ways to successfully follow Christ. Even mature believers can learn something new, and experience the uprising that McManus describes.
McManus shares many amazing personal stories and passages from scripture that point to the importance of discipline - and how it actually frees us rather than binds us. He explores the importance of character in determining our course. We see how we often settle for control of the familiar rather than move on to true freedom. We learn about selflessness, humility, integrity, faith, courage, gratitude, generosity, love, perseverance, wisdom and servanthood.
Do not read this book without a highlighter. There is so much wisdom crammed into these pages that it is impossible to absorb and apply it in one read. This is one of those books that you will return to again and again for its insight, clarity and refreshing bits of humor.

I didn't ever think that "wholeness" as McManus writes of it was possible. As a member of a twelve step group, I thought of myself in recovery not recovered. But McManus points out that your brokenness can be healed. This doesn't mean you are perfect, but your focus no longer has to be on yourself.
I found that what he says is true as a spiritual healing has just taken place in my life. I really appreciate McManus explanation of spiritual wholeness. I've never heard anyone explain it before.
McManus challenges men to conquer our greatest weaknesses, and embark on a great adventure with Jesus.
Outstanding and insightful. I loved this book, and refer to it often, both for sermon preparation and personal reflection when I am struggling.
Erwin breakdown the chucky virtures of Faith, Hope and Love to a mirco level, making it easier for them to permeate into our system to produce the kind of person and the level of living Jesus calls us to.
Breathtaking, enlarging and dangerously poetic, this book is truly nothing short of a Revolution.
