That said, this is a simple, but challenging book. The basic premise is that we as Christians are not called to a domesticated religion, but a passionate faith in Jesus that will lead us into all sorts of crazy and exciting places.
One of the things I appreciated most about the book was the way in which McManus talked about raising his children in the faith. By not giving them a domesticated religion, but rather introducing them to a wild untamed relationship with Jesus. It is certainly worth pondering how to raise our children in a way that unleashes them to follow Jesus.
I thought it was a great little book. The biggest problem with the book is that it is much easier to read than to put into practice.
