Each chapter in those three sections is labeled an "entry," an accurate description for writing that at times has the feel of a journal entry. Only with McManus, the writing is a cut above the way most of us would record our musings. He startles you every now and then with a sentence that you know you'll remember forever. One example, from Entry #13, Being Loved to Death, in reference to Jesus' encounter with the Pharisees and the woman caught in adultery (the "Let him who is without sin throw the first stone" passage): "If Jesus' encounter with this unnamed adulterous woman tells us anything," he writes, "it reveals the unexpected truth that the safest place for a sinful person to go is to God." We may already know that, we may in fact have known that for years, but we may never have thought to express it in that way --- describing God as the safest place for a sinner to go.
McManus's way with words may be the book's greatest strength. He's so good with words that it takes a while before you realize that you have no better idea of what to do with your unfulfilled soul cravings than you had before you read the book. It's like the way you feel after a profound and caffeine-laced philosophical discussion with a friend about the deeper issues of life.Read more ›
This book is almost impossible to read in one sitting. Each section is much too rich for a quick read. Ewrin's words will stretch your understanding of God's love, life, meaning, cravings, and destiny.
Erwin, thanks for the awesome and inspiring book!
Many of us make our way to the pews each Sunday with a sense of belonging but continued longing for the fulfillment of the Christian life. What in the world am I hear for? This was the question Rick Warren worked to answer in The Purpose Driven Life. Now, McManus brings that question to Baby Busters to Gen-Y and many of us, regardless of age, struggling with similar caffeine issues. Soul Cravings will resonate with anyone that admits they're alive and dreaming, somewhere deep inside.
