Since I finished reading Soar by Kenny Luck, it’s time to request another review book from Blogging for Books. By the way, if you blog and enjoy reading, you should definitely sign up for this program. There is not cost to join (and, no, I don’t get anything if you join either), and they send you free books to review.
I’ve decided to review The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning. The book was first published in 1990, but I’ve never read it. (I’m not sure why it is available for review now, but I’m glad that it is. I guess this is a new edition of the book.)
Here is part of the publisher’s blurb about the book:
Many believers feel stunted in their Christian growth. We beat ourselves up over our failures and, in the process, pull away from God because we subconsciously believe He tallies our defects and hangs His head in disappointment. In this newly repackaged editionâ€”now with full appendix, study questions, and the authorâ€™s own epilogue, â€œRagamuffin Ten Years Later,â€ Brennan Manning reminds us that nothing could be further from the truth. The Father beckons us to Himself with a â€œfurious loveâ€ that burns brightly and constantly. Only when we truly embrace Godâ€™s grace can we bask in the joy of a gospel that enfolds the most needy of His flockâ€”the â€œragamuffins.â€
I like the focus on grace, so I’m looking forward to reading it.
Have you ever read The Ragamuffin Gospel? If so, what did you think about it?
