About the Author
Brennan Manning has spent the past forty years helping others experience the reality of God's love and grace. It's at the heart of everything he's written and done. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, his spiritual journey has taken him down a variety of paths. He has taught seminarians, spoken to packed arenas, lived in a cave in Spain where he labored with the poor, and ministered to shrimpers in Alabama. Brennan is best known as the author of the contemporary classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba's Child, Ruthless Trust, and The Importance of Being Foolish.
Dan Cushman authentically interprets Brennan Manning's inspiring autobiographical message of God's fierce love for His children. He makes especially believable Manning's comparison of the awesome and majestic forces of nature to God's pursuit of His children. With empathy and clarity, Cashman powerfully characterizes Manning's description of himself as a recovering alcoholic, a divorcé, a Catholic priest, and a sinner. Before Manning's return to the Father, Cashman interprets what Manning calls the "how and why" of those earlier situations and captures the tension of the complex passage that led Manning to an intimate and personal knowledge of God's love. This work showcases the limitless efforts of God to reach out to a lost child with a Father's love. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
