Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
McManus's collection of essays reads like a series of lively late-night college bull sessions about the meaning of life, with enough transitions and common threads to pull reader-participants along. "We are all on the same quest," he writes. "And our soul craving is to find something we can believe in." McManus wants readers to come to know themselves and meet God on the journey. "This thing that haunts you, that never seems satisfied, the cravings in your soul that you are unable to satiate through all the success that the world can bring this is your soul screaming for God." He spends many pages on love and its implications and emphasizes grace while eschewing legalism and shaming. McManus also muses on ambition, the power of hope, the uniqueness of each person, the search for meaning and purpose, the need for trust, and death and the problem of evil. McManus (The Barbarian Way), the lead pastor of the Mosaic community in Los Angeles, has an unusually un-self-conscious voice. Throughout, he seamlessly incorporates personal anecdotes, music lyrics and movie snippets. Although the content isn't particularly new and the book might have benefited from some tightening, McManus's fresh presentation will do much to woo spiritual seekers and disenchanted Christians to a more authentic Christianity.

    Loved it!

    This book answered so many questions. I would recommend it to everyone. The author wrote this book in a way that he makes it seem that he's speaking to you directly. The book is very easy to read and hard to put down. Our need for love and our deepest desires will start to make more sense after reading this book. Awesome book!

    Unexpected

    This book is split into three sections. I began with the last section first because it appealed to me the most. What I found was deep and far from the beaten path. It is full of great quotes from modern people, films and literature. The quotes are quirky, poetic and not boring. Soul Cravings is very insightful and could easily change your perspective on life.

    Excellent and easy to read!

    I am about halfway through this book and i have to say i love it. I think the simplicity of the layout makes it inviting to read. The books design is simplistic and original which is a nice break from the norm of Christian writing. The way McManus breaks down the three sections of the book is brilliant. After reading the section on Intimacy I have a new perspective on why we as humans love and God's love for us. I definitely recommend checking this book out to anyone. It is easy to read and has great content, I will definitely be checking out other books by this author.
