Editorial Reviews

Review

"I consider Brennan Manning to be my spiritual director in the school of grace. I can't stop learning about it, and fortunately, he can't stop writing about it. I welcome this collection as a treasury of that great theme." -- Philip Yancey, author of The Jesus I Never Knew and What's So Amazing About Grace?

"No other writer today so passionately calls us to face our brokenness and enter Abba's heart. In Reflections for Ragamuffins Brennan has written more than a daily devotional. This is healing medicine for the desperate beggars we all are before God." -- Dr. Larry Crabb, Psychologist, author of 14 books, including Connecting, Understanding People, Finding God, and Inside Out

"So much religion is conveyed to us as bad news or bland news that we are immensely grateful when it is spoken freshly as good news. This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good." -- Eugene Peterson, author of Leap Over a Wall

From the Back Cover

Daily Devotions, from the author of The Ragamuffin Gospel

Brennan Manning shares his joyful message in a powerful new way with his first ever collection of daily devotions. For every day of the year the beloved author of The Ragamuffin Gospel and The Boy Who Cried Abba offers a verse of Scripture, and each day's meditation is completed with a complementary reading from his own writings.

Whether your life has already been changed by Brennan Manning's dynamic version of the good news or you are meeting him here for the first time, Reflections for Ragamuffins will open your mind and heart to a profound new experience of God's unconditional love.

The author, as a priest could not find God in church dogma. Having found God he encourages Christians to stop playing church and find God personally. I would highly recommend the book An Encounter With A Prophet to anyone who takes Manning seriously.

Let me start by saying this: I hate 99% of all the devotionals that have been or probably ever will be published. Christianity has been beset by a plague of surface-level, overly sentimental, faux spirituality.
That is not the case here. The stuff written in these pages is truth-the truth of Jesus Christ. The stuff written here flows with love and grace. The selections used in this book deal with what Christianity looks, feels, and smells like where the rubber of Christianity meets the road of life.
Brennan Manning clearly expresses what it means to surrender your life to Jesus; and what it is like to live with him. No cost is too great for obtaining a copy of this book. It is truly "bread for the journey." Buy it and then read it. It will change your life (and your eternity.)

Brennan Manning has a way of writing things! He totally blows my mind! He is so real, so in love with God, so passionate.. I have been searching and searching for a devotional that isn't phony.. something that really gets to the point.. and i found it! This book doesn't waste anytime.. He gives it to you straight.. IT IS AMAZING!! If you are sick and tired of a water down sugar coated gospel, this is the book for you! Prepare to examine your life, be challenged, and grow!

Format: Paperback
There is not enough time nor enough words to express the beauty, the wonder, the sweetness and the safety that Brennan Manning's reflections bring to the weary in heart. A shepherd like the great shepherd, this book leads us beside still waters and restores our souls without compromising either our intellects or our hearts. A meeting place for Body, Soul and Spirit with all the Richness of Brennan's experiences as an ex Franciscan priest, a recovering alcoholic and a theologian. A man who has lived, who has failed and who has survived to tell us about it. Excellent and Comforting.

Manning forcefully shouts the wake up call for Christians to stop playing church and to start incarnating the ever present reality of Christ in the sloppy glory of daily living.

Format: Paperback
I have found some of the most profound thoughts about God and Jesus in this book. I had never given much thought to God not being able to be angry with us because God is love. That is until I read the very brief meditation in this book. The author wrote what I have felt for quite some time that Christians can easily be brothers and sisters but have a difficult time being sons and daughters. This is a great daily meditation book.

I first started reading Manning about three years ago and found that he presents a very practical, life changing "Christianity" that leads one to really think about what and why you believe what you do. You will not read another author like him! He wants us to live victoriously, loving God passionately and not being afraid to show it, and loving others with a boldness. It has changed my life for the better!
