Many believers beat themselves up over failures and pull away from God because they believe He’s disappointed with them. There’s a difficulty in applying the theory of God’s grace to our lives. Brennan Manning reinforces the truth that we cannot earn God’s acceptance any more than we can earn our salvation. We are ragamuffins, every one. Yet God loves us anyway, with a furious love, no matter what we’ve done. Brennan provides numerous examples of grace, and how to receive it, accept it and believe it. And as a result, extend it to others.
The Ragamuffin Gospel is Brennan Manning’s now classic meditation on grace and what it takes to access it — simple honesty.
“Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off of shop-worn theology and allowing God’s grace to do what only God’s grace can do—amaze.”
-Max Lucado, Bestselling author of The Gift for All People
“I found deep comfort in realizing that Jesus loves even me, a ragamuffin, just as I am.”
-Michael Card, Musician, recording artist, and author of A Violent Grace
“This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good.”
-Eugene Peterson, Author of The Message
