What should the church look like today?What should be the focus of its message?How should I present that message?We live in as pivotal and defining an age as the Great Depression or the Sixties–a period whose definition, say some cultural observers, includes a warning of the church’s influence. The result? A society measurably less religious but decidedly more spiritual. Less influenced by authority than by experience. More attuned to images than to words.How does the church adapt to such a culture? Or should it, in fact, eschew adapting for maintaining a course it has followed these last two millennia? Or something in between?These are exactly the questions asked in The Church In Emerging Culture by five Christian thinker-speaker-writers, each who advocate unique stances regarding what the church’s message should be (and what methods should be used to present it) as it journeys through this evolving, postmodern era. The authors are:Andy Crouch–Re:Generation Quarterly editor-in-chiefMichael Horton–professor and reformed theologianFrederica Mathewes-Green–author, commentator, and Orthodox ChristianBrian D. McLaren–postmodernist, author, pastor, and Emergent senior fellowErwin Raphael McManus–author and pastor of the innovative and interethnic L.A.-based church, MosaicMost unique about their individual positions is that they’re presented not as singular essays but as lively discussions in which the other four authors freely (and frequently) comment, critique, and concur. That element, coupled with a unique photographic design that reinforces the depth of their at-once congenial and feisty conversation, gives you all-access entrée into this groundbreaking discourse.What’s more, general editor Leonard Sweet (author of SoulTsunami and AquaChurch, among several other acclaimed texts) frames the thought-provoking dialogue with a profoundly insightful, erudite introductory essay–practically a book within a book. The Church In Emerging Culture is foundational reading for leaders and serious students of all denominations and church styles.

Cuando llegues al final de tus días, no medirás el valor de tu vida a base de éxitos y fracasos. Todo eso comenzará a difuminarse en una sola memoria llamada “vida”. Lo que te dará consuelo, o te perseguirá hasta tu último suspiro, es lo que pudiste haber hecho, pero no hiciste; lo que pudiste haber sido, pero nunca llegaste a ser; la vida que hubieras podido vivir que nunca viviste.  

Este libro es un mapa que desafía probabilidades y altera destinos. Descubre los atributos de quienes desafían la mediocridad, a medida que Erwin Raphael McManus examina las características de aquellos que arriesgaron todo por una vida que tan solo podían imaginar. Imagínate viviendo la vida que estabas convencido de que tan solo era un sueño.

Todos comenzamos esta vida con una vaina llena de flechas. La elección es tuya. ¿Te aferras a tus flechas, o las arriesgas todas optando por vivir hasta que no te queda nada que dar? 

When you come to the end of your days, you will not measure your life based on success and failures. All of those will eventually blur together into a single memory called “life.” What will give you solace is a life with nothing left undone. One that’s been lived with relentless ambition, a heart on fire, and with no regrets. On the other hand, what will haunt you until your final breath is who you could have been but never became and what you could have done but never did.

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 Erwin McManus examines the characteristics of individuals who risked everything for a life they could only imagine. Imagine living the life you were convinced was only a dream. 

We all begin this life with a quiver full of arrows. Now the choice is yours. Will you cling to your arrows or risk them all, opting to live until you have nothing left to give?
 
La obra de arte más importante es la vida que nosotros creamos.En El alma artesana, Erwin Raphael McManus, autor, líder del pensamiento y fundador de MOSAIC en Los Ángeles, redacta un manifiesto para la creatividad humana y el comienzo de un nuevo renacimiento. McManus no solo nos llama a recuperar nuestra esencia creativa, sino que también revela cómo podemos formar de nuestras vidas una obra de arte. No hay atajos hacia la calidad, y McManus celebra el proceso espiritual que puede ayudarnos a descubrir nuestro verdadero yo.
McManus demuestra que todos llevamos en nuestro interior la esencia de un artista. Todos necesitamos crear, ser una parte del proceso que aporta al mundo algo hermoso, bueno y verdadero, a fin de permitir que nuestra alma cobre vida. No es solamente la calidad de los ingredientes que usamos para edificar nuestras vidas lo que importa, sino también el cuidado que aportamos al proceso en sí. Al igual que hornear pan artesano, es un proceso que se realiza con el tiempo.
Y Dios tiene algo que decir acerca de cómo moldeamos nuestras vidas. Con historias conmovedoras e inspiradoras, y perspectivas sacadas del arte, la vida, la historia, y escrituras intercaladas a lo largo del libro, McManus acompaña a los lectores en el proceso de crear una vida de belleza y asombro.
 The most important work of art is the life that we create. In The Artisan Soul, Erwin Raphael McManus, author, thought leader, and founder of MOSAIC in Los Angeles, pens a manifesto for human creativity and the beginning of a new renaissance. McManus not only calls us to reclaim our creative essence, but reveals how we can craft our lives into a work of art. There are no shortcuts to quality, and McManus celebrates the spiritual process that can help us discover our true selves.
McManus demonstrates that we all carry within us the essence of an artist. We all need to create, to be a part of a process that brings to the world something beautiful, good, and true, in order to allow our souls to come to life. It’s not only the quality of the ingredients we use to build our lives that matter, but the care we bring to the process itself. Just like baking artisan bread, it’s a process that’s crafted over time.
         
Dos mil años después, el llamado a seguir a Cristo se ha re-empacado para ser suave, a prueba de problemas, lleno de oportunidades y promesas, pero sin riesgo, pasión ni sacrificio. ¿Es esto por lo que Jesús murió? Si Él escogió el camino de la cruz, ¿a dónde vacilaría en llevarnos? ¿Será posible que seguir a Jesús sea escoger el camino del bárbaro?
Jesús nunca hizo un llamado prístino a una religión apropiada y segura. Jesús atrae a sus seguidores a un camino muy lejos de ser una ruta fácil. Es un camino lleno de aventura, incertidumbre, y posibilidades ilimitadas. El único camino que puede realizar los más profundos anhelos y deseos de tu corazón.
Este es el camino del bárbaro: darla tu corazón al Único que puede hacerte plenamente vivo. Amarlo con intensidad y sencillez. Desatar la fe salvaje que llevas dentro. Ser consumido por la presencia de un Dios apasionado y compasivo. Ir a donde Él te envía, cueste lo que cueste.

Two thousand years later, the call to follow Christ has been repackaged to be smooth and trouble-free, filled with opportunity and promise but lacking risk, passion, and sacrifice. Is this really what Jesus died for? If He chose the way of the cross, where would He hesitate leading us? Is it possible that to follow Jesus is to choose the barbarian way?
Jesus never made a pristine call to a proper or safe religion. Jesus beckons His followers to a path that is far from the easy road. It is a path filled with adventure, uncertainty, and unlimited possibilities. The only path that can fulfill the deepest longings and desires of your heart.
This is the barbarian way: to give your heart to the only One who can make you fully alive. To love Him with simplicity and intensity. To unleash the untamed faith within. To be consumed by the presence of a passionate and compassionate God. To go where He sends you, no matter the cost.
