Review of “Wide Awake”


Wide Awake is not one of McManus’s best books. I found it a bit of a self-help book. I really think that his premise is a good one though that we far too easily give up on our dreams in hopes of living a better Christian life. Whereas the Bible is clear that to follow Christ is to dream big and to live Wide Awake. I was inspired by the book as I am with all of McManus’s books but I left the book wanting something different from this very talented author.

One other very annoying trait of the book was all the misspellings and bad grammar. I would put the occurrences at about 40 for the number of these errors. This is far too many for this caliber of book and author.
