Adventure awaits. Opportunity is all around us.
In his inspiring book, Chasing Daylight
, Erwin McManus uses the biblical account of Israel's war with the Philistines (1 Samuel 13–14) and the characters of Jonathan and Saul to demonstrate the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure, and living one of apathy and missed opportunity. Through this story, McManus artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer's heart, what he calls the “Jonathan factor.”
In this video Bible study series, Erwin uses powerful examples from his own life, along with fresh biblical teaching to assert that God crafts divine moments specific to each of us—priceless opportunities for us to actively engage in God's big-picture plan.

OTHER SERIES WITH Erwin McManus
Making choices in life often seems as if we're in a jungle and there's no clear path. In Genesis 3 we read about the Tree of Life—the place of man's first rebellious choice—and we see that each choice creates the future for ourselves and our relationship to God. Everything is interconnected.
The film portrays a hunter sprinting through a lush jungle; trees whipping past him as he searches for a path. The man eventually comes to a symbolic tree of life and faces a choice of his own. We discover that love is a choice, faith is a choice, and in fact, choice can be a creative and deeply spiritual act.
The first film in Erwin Raphael McManus's highly creative series Signs, Earth explores the contrast between spiritual barrenness and God's promise that He is doing a new thing for His creation.
A barren field. A stark landscape. As the poet Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” McManus once resonated with the loneliness of Solomon's words. He wondered what good could come from the emptiness of the world. Then he looked more closely. He saw sprouts cracking dirt. He saw God breathing warmth into dust. And he saw earth transform from darkness to a source of life.
Created to be 10 to 15 minutes in length and rich in Scripture, story, and powerful imagery, Earth and its upcoming sequels—Fire, Wind, Wood and Water, all filmed in Hawaii—will change forever the way viewers see earth's elements and the God who created them.
In Wind, visionary leader and filmmaker Erwin Raphael McManus uses the metaphor of wind to explore the ideas of breath, life, and God's Holy Spirit, who is the source of all life.
Is there anything more mysterious than wind? We can't see it, and yet we feel it brush our faces every day.
In the Scriptures when “God's Spirit hovered over the waters” in Genesis, the word used for spirit can also be translated wind, or breath. So God's Spirit is like the wind. We can't always see Him, but we sense His presence daily.
As McManus opens up this journey, the story of a young couple falling in love unfolds onscreen. By the end of the film, viewers will never experience wind in the same way again.
How healthy are you?
Eat right. Exercise. Many of us struggle to keep our bodies in shape. But are we really healthy? Our total health begins at the core of who we are … our spirit. Our spiritual health is linked directly to our emotional, physical and mental health. How healthy do you really think you are?
In these four Bible study sessions, Erwin McManus teaches how we can reclaim our spiritual health by examining how our faith affects us physically, emotionally, and relationally. Each session also features a real-life story or inspiring teaching clip.
What is the one thing that's impossible to change about yourself?
You can change you appearance, your habits, your friends, your job…but you can't change your character. Not on your own.
You were in God's imagination before you were ever born. All the talent, gifting, and creativity you possess was placed in you by God Himself. Can you imagine the things you could do, the impact you could have on the world, if you tapped into the dreams God has for your life?
In each of the six Uprising video Bible study sessions, Erwin McManus provides Biblical and practical teaching that will challenge you to allow God to transform your character to be more like His. He illuminates the desperate heart cry of every human being – “I want to live” – and then serves as a guide on a quest to answer that cry.
