More About the Author

Erwin Raphael McManus is an iconoclast known as a cultural pioneer for his integration of creativity and spirituality.

Erwin is an artist, entrepreneur, and cultural thought leader who is also the founder of MOSAIC, a community of faith in Los Angeles California. Known for their innovation, creativity, and artistry, MOSAIC has been named one of the most influential and innovative churches in America.

Engaging such issues as culture, creativity, change, and leadership, Erwin is widely known as a thought-provoking communicator, poet, and wordsmith. His travels have taken him to over 50 countries and he has spoken to over a million people from a wide variety of audiences, from professional sports, Wall Street investors, universities, film studios, and conferences across the world.

Erwin Raphael McManus sees the imagination as the principle vehicle through which we create a better self, a better world, and a better future. He argues that creativity is both uniquely human and the essence of human uniqueness. Creativity, McManus contends, is a natural expression of our spirituality. When we are most fully alive we create out of love all that is good and beautiful and true.

Erwin has a BA in psychology from UNC Chapel Hill, a Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary, and a Doctorate of Humane Letters from Southeastern University.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is outstanding. McManus once again challenges readers to think about their own lives and how they are living. Using what he calls, "The Character Matrix," he challenges us to go from self-focused slobs to servant-leaders. McManus presents three streams in this journey, greed -> generosity, foolishness -> wisdom, and pride - > courage. Each stream will force you to reflect on what kind of life you are living, and whether you are inwardly or outwardly focused.
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+

I am Erwin McManus' newest fan. His book challenged me to clarify and rethink word concepts such as integrity, gratefulness and service. He has a gift for connecting and contrasting words providing clarity and incite. I was compelled to re examine and re commit to basic beliefs that had been left to atrophy.

Format: Hardcover
Uprising is the second book by Erwin Mcmanus that I have read. Just like "Seizing your divine moment", this book challenged my faith, and really made me contemplate my walk with God. The author does not pull any punches when he discusses what it takes to experience a revolution of the soul. I think many readers will be refreshed by his honesty and sincerity of the message.

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.

Uprising borders on mysticism. However, it is high time that we start understanding Christianity and the sacrifice made for us. We too often allow ourselves to become the center of life.

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.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Larry Hehn on November 16, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Stop for a moment and consider your life to date. Would you consider it ordinary, mediocre? Have you fallen short of your true potential? Do you have the nagging feeling that, as Mufasa says to Simba in The Lion King, "You are more than what you have become?" If you are ready for a "revolution of the soul"; if you are ready for personal transformation, here's a good place to begin.

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.

Format: Hardcover
I bought all three of the author's books at the same time. I tried to read them in the order, in which he wrote them, but found this book to be the only one I could read immediately. As the Quakers say, "it spoke to my condition. "

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.

This is McManus' third book and is directed towards inner character and passion for Christ. I could not read a chapter without examining my own life to see where I stood in areas of forgiveness, gratitude, and wisdom. I highly recommend this to you.
