You know it all too well: life is fraught with challenging moments. When the storms of life blow-as they most certainly will-are you going to stand strong, bend, or break? Popular author Erwin Raphael McManus suggests that you discover how to rise above the normal reaction and learn to stand against the wind. Through thought-provoking chapters, McManus takes readers on a journey of transformation through the landscape of their character-from where they start out "Running Free," through "Rising Out of the Ashes," developing "Divine Imagination," and finally, reaching the "Greatness of Servanthood."

I have really enjoyed McManus' work and writing over the years, and I look for his new work when it comes out. The Unstoppable Force, Seizing Your Divine Moment and Uprising were all books that I found exciting and and inspirational. The tidbits of stories and scriptural work such as the material around Jonathan and David brought me back to those books more than once. In Comparison, Stand Against The Wind seems empty. It's almost like a collection of inspirational greeting cards. The shifting fonts look pretty but actually prove difficult to read, and they don't really serve any purpose. I almost want the book to calm down so I can just read it . . . I picked up the book hoping for a conversation with Erwin, but instead I feel like I've been given a package or collection of cool things he's said. I miss the stories of Erwin's life and experience and hope the next book will once again offer more of those . . . ( )
