“The Barbarian Way”
by Erwin Raphael McManus
This book is commonly what I would consider a read that is really out of my wheelhouse. I seldom read religious books specifically and found this book to really be thought provoking as it relates to traditional organized religion.
First, the author is a pastor who runs a very non-traditional church that encourages people to search for the things they are good at and apply them to life in pretty radical ways. Further, he steadily demonstrates that Jesus encouraged us to take the hard road and not follow the “fluffy – easy church route”. To find the untamed faith within us takes guts and determination.
This is a great read for people wanting to question organized religion and find the power within them with faith.
