The book was convicting and motivating. It caused me to take a second look at what I do and why I do it. He uses the story of his own cancer and what that meant to him regarding how he lived his life. It is a personal story. McManus explains he would much prefer God asking him the question ‘of why he tried to do too much, rather than why he settled for so little.’
With that thesis in mind, McManus explains how the reader can live their lives to the fullest, and he uses the story, an obsucre one from the Old Testament about Elisha from 2 Kings 13:14-20 where Elisha tells King Jehoash to shoot an arrow then to strike the arrows on the ground, however the king only strikes the ground 3 times and no more. Elisha becomes angry and thus the theme of the story is to use your last arrow. Don’t die with a quiver full of arrows!
Overall, it’s an excellent book which I would highly recommend.
I received this book from bloggingforbooks in exchange for an honest review.
