A long essay really rather than a book, The Barbarian Way has an interesting hook but one that never really forms a great deal of coherence. The idea that too often faith gets co-opted into tradition and then into comfort in security is not particularly insightful - it is a rather common place facet of human nature. But McManus livens the discussion with his Celtic hero type language. After the intial discussion, however, I didn't feel like it got any deeper or fleshed out the ideas all that well.

It left me thinking: interesting idea but not all that practical or developed.
