Reviews - What do customers think about A Glimpse of Jesus: The Stranger to Self-Hatred?

A simple title for a hard to read book  Feb 24, 2004
It is a great title and a topic I would love to chew on - but the only thing this book helped me do is feel illiterate and stupid. I found myself having to re-read paragraphs over and over again to try and figure out what the writer was actually trying to say. So many big words in such a thin little book - definitely not easy reading. What a pity.
Brennan, you've done it again  Sep 23, 2003
This extremely important and absolutely priceless jewel is one of the first to directly address the most pressing spiritual problem of the postmodern age: self-hatred.

We are a generation raised by the TV, the daycare center, the foster half-stepmother. We have not known unconditional love. And we hate ourselves.

Brennan Manning's glimpse of Jesus opens the door to healing. Highly recommended.

A dazzling glimpse that feels like so much more....  Mar 18, 2003
Brennan Manning once again captures the wonder of his reader through humility, compassion and grace with his most thoroughly satisfying book since "Ruthless Trust.""A Glimpse of Jesus" is nothing more than just that, as Manning mentions in his introduction, but what a wonderful glimpse it turns out to be.

Being an avid Manning fan, I liked this book better than "The Wisdom of Tenderness" because it seemed to break free and stood alone, while "Tenderness" seemed to borrow to heavily from his past three wonderful books "Ruthless Trust,""Abba's Child" and his ever-famous "Ragamuffin Gospel." Thankfully, "Glimpse" brings Manning back to focus, with an undeniably powerful focus on Jesus: the "stranger to self-hatred."

At only approximently 141 pages, the book will read fast and will, if nothing else, show you a side of Jesus that many people refuse to see. I recommend this book highly! It's easly one of the best books I've read in awhile. But it's Manning, so it's no surprise.

SEARING!  Mar 11, 2003
I read half of this book in less than an hour, seated at BORDERS. I was absolutely mesmerized by the passion, the honesty, and the integrity of the author. I was at times gripped by compassion, at times almost brought to tears, at times feeling myself smiling broadly, all this because the book is written from the heart, straight to the heart.

Brennan Manning addresses the issues of legalism, religion, and the need for the real love of Christ without holding back any punches. He shows himself as an unashamed, unapologetic defender of the truth, and of all who are downtrodden, alienated and sickened by the self-righteous, law-toting wing of present Christianity. He is fearless in his articulation, bold in his assertions, and deeply, tearfully compassionate in his appeals, so he wins the heart of this here ragamuffin Christian!

His protrayal of Jesus will melt your heart. He supplements his own views with great quotes from many notable Christians, bulking up the integrity of this book.

All in all, this is Brennan Manning at his fieriest best, but it is a fire that stands in defense for all who feel a deep need for a true sense of God's love and who aren't receiving it from the church at large. This is one of the best books on the person of Jesus Christ, as it delves deep into His heart.

If you have been hurt by the church and by legalistic Christianity, then this is a book that will bring healing to your soul. Be assured, this isn't a mushy book on God's love. It is not fluff. It is a strong, clear, articulate presentation of the love of Christ and a passionate argument for the revealing of the true heart of Jesus at the same time. Take along tissue; you may laugh and cry all at once reading this!


I loved this book!  Feb 23, 2003
This was the right time in my life to pick up this book. I'm just beginning recovery from alcoholism. My sponsor says that "when the student is ready, the teacher appears." And I consider Brennan now one of those special teachers in my life. He speaks from his heart presenting an intimate God who always loves us as we are and seeks to be in fellowship with us. I've never been a very "spiritual" person, but this book has helped to start me on a journey of relationship with God.

The writing is eloquent and personal but not pretentious or boastful. Manning utilizes dozens of images and depictions of Jesus without being preachy or exegetical. He's not concerned with a particular Christological argument or with proving any points. Instead, he helps the reader to join him in considering the awesomeness of God's love and how God can remove our fears, heal our old wounds, and enable us to forgive ourselves. For me right now these are life and death issues, and I'm grateful for this book's guidance.
