Radically Unleashed into a Sold Out Wanderer fighting the Current Religion Institutional Systems
This was a fairly quick read because I realized fairly early in that I'd already read The Barbarian Way.
Turns out this was the same book.
A cynic would say that he's just trying to sell more books without having to write new books.
A cynic would point out that that first guy was just being cynical -and judgmental on top of that.
A more sensitive person would ask why I was assuming the cynic was a guy.
Turns out that Erwin liked his first book but the title made it seem like a book that only men would read. I'm not really sure about the etymology of Barbarian...but I'd probably assume he was talking about a dude too. (stop judging me, Erwin said it first)
So my first thought was this was another hipster pastor who loved to talk about this radical thing that would go against the grain of traditional faith/church/christians/thinking. This isn't your grandpa's faith, yo!
My second thought was - maybe this guy is the real deal. Maybe it isn't just words on a page. Why don't you just read it for what it is?
If you like books that challenge you and/or cause you to re-evaluate your day to day marching orders...this probably would be worth a read.
