From the Inside Flap
Imagine a stormy day at sea: your ship yielding to a relentless wind, pummeled by crashing waves, subject to the awesome force of nature. A force that is both fierce and majestic. A power that is nothing short of furious. Such is God's intense love for His children.
The Furious Longing of God is the latest tour de force from beloved author and ragamuffin, Brennan Manning. Hold on tight as you discover the most powerful force in the universe: God's furious longing for you. There is nowhere God won't go to find us. No country too distant. No terrain too treacherous. No risk too great. It is a Father's search for His lost son, His lost daughter. And there are no boundaries to where His love will take Him in order to find us, embrace us, and carry us home! --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I enjoyed the questions at the ends of sections. They are asked in such a way that causes awe at the Father and encounter with Him and honesty from our own hearts.
Anyone who wants to know the love of God and how to dispense it in an authentic way should read this book.
Brennan Manning can write. As the days were heavy on me, I would whisper as he suggested, "I belong to you, Abba." It was instantly healing to be reminded that I belonged to my Father and He longed for me when others chose to ostracize me.
I prayed this scripture,
"I am my Beloved's, and His desire is for me."
-Song of Solomon 7:10
Brennan helped me to see the Song of Solomon in a new way. I became the desired object of the rhythmic literary work and I felt the longing of my Abba.
Read this book.
"Come then, My beloved, My lovely one, come. For see, winter is past, the rains are over and gone. Flowers are appearing on the earth. The season of glad songs has come. The cooing of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree is forming its first figs and the blossoming vines give out their fragrance. Come then, My beloved, My lovely one, come."
Song of Solomon 2:10-13
Thank you, Brennan Manning. The Holy Spirit used your book to weave the epic poetry of the Lord onto this human heart. The Spirit of God ministered to me beyond words as I turned each page. Thank you.
Now and then a very unique book finds its way into your heart. This is such a book. It is raw, real and radical. It is also sometimes a little shocking. However, it is basically a call to a higher purpose. I love the way Brennan Manning writes. The writing style is intellectual all while being very grounded in reality. Brennan Manning has seen and experienced things that many Christians would distance themselves from. In his life he has learned how to love the unloveable. Basically this is a great book for anyone struggling with their relationship with God. This book explains the great love of God and how God loves us even in our imperfect state. I was so moved by this work that I read it in one sitting hardly glancing from my Kindle. It completely captivated me.
