The Way of the Warrior

Do you think of yourself as a warrior? I’ll admit, I never really think of myself as a warrior. But in his newest book, The Way of the Warrior, Erwin McManus challenges everyone to consider how similar the life of a warrior is with the life of a believer.

A warrior seems so imposing. Fierce. Full of strength.

But what McManus proposes is that really, a warrior is on a quest to find peace. By considering eight codes of conduct befitting a warrior, McManus shows the reader how to take a transformative inner journey. A journey that will help you see that your perspective is shaped in your heart. And what you believe in your heart will impact every single way that you engage with the world around you.

This book will take you on a journey.

To see how Jesus was able to challenge the norms of Bible times while staying true to the mission God gave him to live. When we choose to battle for those around us and for truth, the battle is noble and the way the fight is fought changes.

It’s hard to put into words what this book has taught me. In some places my thinking was challenged. In other places, it was confirmed. And in others, I’m still engaging with the text and examining what it means for my life.

The Way of the Warrior is a book that will challenge you. Encourage you. And make you think abou the way you are currently living your life. Don’t like the title of warrior make you get caught up in thinking this is some strange meshing of an eastern religion with Christianity. The warrior is a metaphor to broaden our understanding of the way we live our lives. This book is a beautiful challenge to look wihtin ourselves and see the places we need to let God in to change our lives.


I received this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.
