Unleashed: Release the Untamed Faith Within

Unleashed: Release the Untamed Faith Within - Erwin Raphael McManus I really tried to finish this book. It's not a long book, but I was really turned off by the author's "over the top" approach to everything. Yes the church today needs something, but I feel like we are all called to be the Christians we are meant to be, and that forcing ourselves into a mindset or methodology that doesn't work with that calling is just wrong. These Radical for Jesus ideals may work better with young and passionate teens and 20 somethings, but with this 40 something mom, not so much.
