The Simple Absolute Truth Feb 24, 2006
Brennan Manning "cuts to the chase", lifting us into the deep, merciful, tender, truthful, absolute reality of the Grace of God freely given to all who will believe, through Jesus Christ His only Son. WHAT A HEALING, LOVING, VERY REAL BOOK...one that leads us "from playing church, to being the Church"
Reflections on Reflections for Ragamuffins Jun 8, 2001
I have found some of the most profound thoughts about God and Jesus in this book. I had never given much thought to God not being able to be angry with us because God is love. That is until I read the very brief meditation in this book. The author wrote what I have felt for quite some time that Christians can easily be brothers and sisters but have a difficult time being sons and daughters. This is a great daily meditation book.
Just Great Nov 14, 2000
The author, as a priest could not find God in church dogma. Having found God he encourages Christians to stop playing church and find God personally. I would highly recommend the book An Encounter With A Prophet to anyone who takes Manning seriously.
This book has truly touched my life! Aug 7, 2000
Brennan Manning has a way of writing things! He totally blows my mind! He is so real, so in love with God, so passionate.. I have been searching and searching for a devotional that isn't phony.. something that really gets to the point.. and i found it! This book doesn't waste anytime.. He gives it to you straight.. IT IS AMAZING!! If you are sick and tired of a water down sugar coated gospel, this is the book for you! Prepare to examine your life, be challenged, and grow!
Life-altering Jul 20, 2000
Let me start by saying this: I hate 99% of all the devotionals that have been or probably ever will be published. Christianity has been beset by a plague of surface-level, overly sentimental, faux spirituality.
That is not the case here. The stuff written in these pages is truth-the truth of Jesus Christ. The stuff written here flows with love and grace. The selections used in this book deal with what Christianity looks, feels, and smells like where the rubber of Christianity meets the road of life.
Brennan Manning clearly expresses what it means to surrender your life to Jesus; and what it is like to live with him. No cost is too great for obtaining a copy of this book. It is truly "bread for the journey." Buy it and then read it. It will change your life (and your eternity.)
