The Ragamuffin Gospel

Full Product Description

This is a book I wrote for myself and anyone who has grown weary and discouraged along the Way. Brennan Manning, "The Ragamuffin Gospel"[P1] Many of us believe in grace, yet we live as if we still have to earn God s love. We picture God hanging His head in disappointment, tallying our successes and failures on a score sheet. We assume we have to do more, or be a different person, for God to be pleased with us. Brennan Manning shows us a different, truer image of our relationship with God: We come to God as ragamuffins. Bedraggled, dirty, exhausted. But as we sit at God s feet, He smiles upon us. He embraces us. He treats us not as failures but as the chosen objects of His love. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Manning s classic meditation on grace, Manning reminds us that we don t need to apply spiritual cosmetics to make ourselves presentable to God. We can recognize our poverty and powerlessness as what bring us closer to a God whose love embraces us no matter what. Brennan 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, pastor and bestselling author This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good. Eugene Peterson, translator of "The Message " This book is for the bent and the bruised who feel that their lives are a grave disappointment to God. Brennan Manning, "The Ragamuffin Gospel" "" The Bible tells us that by grace we are saved. So why does our spirituality often start with ourselves, not with God? Why are we likely to believe in grace in theory but deny it in practice? "" In "The Ragamuffin Gospel, "Brennan Manning explores the true meaning of the word "grace "in all its power. When we beat ourselves up over who we are or what we ve done, we pull away from God. When we acknowledge that it is "only "grace that can save us, we draw near to a God who delights in who He created us to be. "The Ragamuffin Gospel "has changed thousands of lives since it was first published twenty-five years ago. In this anniversary edition, we find the timeless wisdom of a man who came to God needy and desperate again and again and found a peace that defined his life, his relationships, and his career. You are not a disappointment to God. God does not put up with you. He celebrates you. God not only loves you, He likes you.. This is the joy of the gospel."
