Reviews - What do customers think about The Boy Who Cried Abba: A Parable of Trust and Acceptance?
nice but boring May 10, 2002
The message of this book is great, but it's just kind of dull. I think it would be good to read aloud to a kid, but for an adult, it didn't have as much content as I had hoped. The ending was beautiful, though. Worth reading....
Closer to the heart of God Feb 22, 2002
This book is a delight to read. In just one sitting it so clearly show's you the heart of Abba, as only Manning can do. The tender story of healing in a boy that is you, and is me. As you turn each page the layers of your heart are stripped away to expose the tender heart that God created. The heart that beats only to love Him and to enjoy fellowship with Abba! I will be reading in anytime I need to be reminded of His love for me.

Manning's simple message of God's Love in a parable form Aug 7, 1997
Manning's message of God's love is expressed very simply in a parable meant for both children and adults. A masterpiece in simplicity to convey a message we all need to hear. Jesus Christ loves us more than we can imagine and is a friend when all others turn away. Thanks Brennan once agai
