“One of the best books I’ve ever read. The Last Arrow will inspire you to make the most of the life you’ve been given and create the life you’ve always wanted.”
—Jon Gordon, author of The Carpenter and Training Camp, JonGordon.com
“The Last Arrow throws wide the window to what God always intended for you…a life of nothing wasted and nothing held back. Each page reveals another mindset that undermines destiny. In Erwin’s words, ‘When you choose to live, you become a source of life.’ It is time to stop burying talents and hoarding arrows. It is not too late to dust off your bow, take aim and shoot with all that is within you.”
—Lisa Bevere, New York Times Bestselling Author, Cofounder Messenger International
“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
“Erwin McManus is a passionate, courageous, and genuine man, and I am thankful to have the rare privilege to encounter him. In his latest book he writes as he has lived. The Last Arrow is a peek into the very threads of Erwin’s journey; threads that has been woven into the fabric of his very life and story. For me. And for you. And for all of us who endeavor to leave more behind than we have taken from this life. The pages of this book will poke you. In fact, they will prod you to live with eternal intention and fight beyond the tyranny of the mundane that we can all become so captive to. Truth and vulnerability make this message catching, compelling, and encouragingly dangerous. You can’t read this book and stay the same.”
—Judah Smith, Lead Pastor of The City Church NY Times best-selling author of Jesus Is _____.

This is a great read! There are too many worthy quotes to list, but here are a few of my favorites :
"The great tragedy would be to live your life waiting for that moment to come instead of living your life preparing for when that moment comes."
"Most of us are not choosing between life and death; we are choosing between existence and death."
"God's future will never come to us at the cost of our character."
McManus grabs your interest from the get-go by informing his readers he is dying. Although he meant it in a spiritual context when he penned it, by the end of the book the statement had taken on a much more literal meaning.
How would you respond if someone you knew and respected informed you they could be dying? You'd pay close attention to every word uttered, especially when those words are backed by passionate conviction.
When your days are numbered, every minute presents an opportunity to live life with all you've got. That's the message of The Last Arrow. Don't settle. Don't be mediocre. Don't save up energy and experiences for another day for another day is never promised to any of us.
Go into the world and make your mark. Even if you're unsure which direction to go, just start walking. Start a business. Hug your children. Take a trip. Take several of them. When asked to do something, go that extra mile.
Hold nothing back for tomorrow. Empty your quiver then ask for more. Don't ever look back. God is able to use you in a larger and deeper way when you're looking out the windshield rather than the rear view mirror. After all, that's why we're here...
At least all those who have any potential to do anything of any significance, which as McManus makes clear in the Last Arrow could be any one of us. My life purpose is to unlock the purpose and passion of others who can 'change the game' and bring a powerful positive difference to the world and I see using The Last Arrow as a new power tool in this process with my clients.
I have not yet written a book, but The Last Arrow says so much that I wish I would have said that I'll be using it in my work as a catalyst to spur others on to the work that they are designed and called to do. Erwin is a masterful storyteller with many real life stories to tell and it's because he has lived the Last Arrow principles powerfully that he has these experiences to share.
So, I anticipate using this as a centerpiece for my Life Story Blueprint Consulting practice in he season ahead because it has so many applications for those who truly want to make their mark on the world. It's almost like a text book that I can use to share key concepts and principles along with powerful stories to show what can happen when the principles are put into practice.
As one who has the dream to catalyze, empower and equip world changers I don't know of a more powerful book than 'The Last Arrow' to get people moving toward their calling, mission and purpose. So, in 2018 this will be my go to training book with my clients and one we'll be using in the church where I serve!
McManus has knocked it out of the park with 'The Last Arrow'!
ALL THE BEST TO YOU.
