The other day someone I know suggested that I check out this book:
I have never heard of Erwin McManus before until then. The book’s description raised some flags, as it sounds like a self-help “live your life to its fullest.” I’m always weary when I come across these types of books where the author claims to be a Christian but the description has more to do with you then with the bible or Jesus. I tried to check the website of the church that he is senior pastor of, but couldn’t find their statement of faith. I did find this old article on the gospel coalition, but it is over ten years old.
His Wikipedia page labels him as a mystic.
I was hoping for some feedback on what people know about Erwin McManus and his theology. If you have read one of his books, what were thoughts? Was it more self-help or did it have biblical teachings?
