Save Nothing For The Next Life
By Erwin Raphael McManus

OVERVIEW: The Last Arrow is your roadmap to a life that defies odds and alters destinies. Discover the attributes of those who break the gravitational pull of mediocrity as cultural pioneer and thought leader Erwin McManus examines the characteristics of individuals who risked everything for a life that seemed impossible. Imagine living the life you were convinced was only a dream.

AUTHOR: Erwin Raphael McManus is an iconoclast, artist, and cultural thought leader known for his integration of creativity and spirituality. He is the founder of MOSAIC, a los Angeles-based community of faith recognized as one of America's most influential and innovative churches. Erwin is the author of books that have sold more than a million copies worldwide. He lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Kim McManus.

MY REVIEW: With this splendid book McManus has driven an arrow into the ground and declared, "Never settle. It's all or nothing. Save nothing for the next life." He boldly states his challenge and then declares that it will be costly and at great risk. He doesn't offer a back-up plan. Everything is required, including your last arrow. This is tough but McManus believes it is the only way to pursue life's deepest joys and greatest battles—with a full heart and an empty quiver.

I like this book. I like the challenge it presents. We live in a time when it seems all we do is talk, talk, talk. Life is speeding on. We are going to die with our arrows in our hands. McManus wants to know what we are saving those arrows for. It's now or never. It's all or nothing.

This book has a preface and then ten exciting and challenging chapters. The reader is challenged to imagine doing everything he/she was meant to do and then with a full heart, taking his/her final breath. Is that the way you would like to live—and die? Read this book.
