“One of the voices that I listen to is Alex McManus. Read Makers of Fire and you’ll see why. He writes in a flowing and fluid style that calls to something deep within us for more of God in this life and world. Alex inspires, challenges, and makes you really think – you’ll never be content again with going back and being the same.”

“Teilhard de Chardin once claimed, ‘someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.’ That someday is now closer for all of us, thanks to Alex McManus’ new book.”

Jay Gary, PhD, is a founding member of the Association of Professional Futurists. He helps leaders master the art of foresight in both business and community contexts.


Makers of Fire is one of the most thought-provoking books I have read in several years. I have been highlighting and taking notes on almost every page. McManus is like a prophet, poet, theologian, futurist.
