A Companion of Jesus

A Preacher of Grace – Brennan Manning

I’d like to recommend Brennan to you and his books, which include:

The Ragamuffin Gospel
The Furious Longing of God
Abba’s Child
Ruthless Trust
The Signature of Jesus
The Importance of Being Foolish: How to think like Jesus
The Wisdom of Tenderness: What Happens When God’s Fierce Mercy Transforms Our Lives
A Glimpse of Jesus: The Stranger to Self-Hatred
Patched Together: A Story of My Story

He has been much maligned by some Christians and it is true to say that he has struggled with the imposter all his life. But he is a man who loves Jesus and you cannot but leap for joy at the furious love of Abba, which shines through the brokenness of Brennan and causes you to dance in the wonder of His Grace and Love, which Brennan reveals and revels in. Jesus, his friend and master, companion and brother, Lord and Saviour is preached and declared in his writings and preaching. He is to me a true Franciscan. A sinner saved by grace.
