"I consider Brennan Manning my spiritual director in the school of grace. I can't stop learning about it and, fortunately, he can't stop writing about it." -- Philip Yancey, author of "The Jesus I Never Knew" and "What's So Amazing About Grace?""Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off shop-worn theology and allowing God's grace to do what only God's grace can do: amaze." -- Max Lucado, author of "In the Grip of Grace""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"

Brennan Manning is a favorite of mine... a favorite author and a favorite person to youtube when I'm needing inspiration.The readings are all pretty short (one page per day) but packed with a knowledge and understanding of God and His love for us.
a. Each day has a Scripture verse associated with an excerpt of Manning's writings. Sometimes, the point of the verse (or the verse's context) has little or nothing to do with the point of the excerpt. Admittedly, this is a problem with virtually all daily devotionals that pair single verses with someone's writing. This devotional does better than most. I've seen devotionals where verses are taken out of context really badly; e.g. the message of the passage (around the verse) is actually opposite the message of the author's own writing. There's nothing like that in this devotional. But, still, the verse selection could be improved.
b. There are some mistakes in the Scripture references. A verse may be printed with a reference, but the reference numbers are off by a verse or a chapter.
c. Manning is sometimes too wordy and theological, and it's hard to tell from the excerpt what he's talking about. He likes expounding on concepts with a lot of adjectives and synonyms. Sometimes he uses terms that we didn't know; they may be well known to Catholic monks, but not to us, so we occasionally had to Google them.
All in all, this is a good, reliable devotional that has sparked some serious thinking.
