Publishers Description " The Signature of Jesus "challenges the gospel of "cheap grace" and calls the church to radical discipleship. With passion and boldness, author Brennan Manning invites readers to risk living life as Jesus lived--committed to simplicity, purity of heart, and obedience to the gospel. "As a radical alternative this book is offered to Christians who want to live by faith and not by mere "religion," for those who recognize that many of the burning theological issues in the church today are neither burning nor theological; who see Christianity neither as a moral code or a belief system but as a love affair; who have not forgotten that they are followers of a crucified Christ; who know that following him means living dangerously; who want to live the gospel without compromise; who have no greater desire than to have his signature written on the pages of their lives. " "Behold," Jesus proclaims, "I stand at the door and knock." You may have already met him at the door...but do you truly "know" him? Have you been transformed by His furious, passionate, unexplainable love? Join Brennan Manning, the bestselling author of "The Ragamuffin Gospel, "on a personal journey to experience Christ's love and live with His passion.

The Signature Of Jesus Sep 23, 2008
I found this book very informative,and makes you look at yourself, I am a Christian, yes but why and how am I to be like Jesus if the Holy Spirit lives in me, and Jesus died for me
A Splendid Book Jun 23, 2008
Through all the diction and wording that Manning carefully uses, I have read some of the most insightful and helpful Christian encouragement in any literary document. True, some parts of the book may seem a bit legalistic and can portray a sense of "holier-than-thou," but underneath these somewhat bold statements lies profound truth and inspirational realism. It may have been also that I've been going through a really rough "dry season" in my spiritual life, but I found this book to be extremely uplifting. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to be encouraged.

The very best of Brennan Manning Jun 27, 2007
This is Manning at his very best. I have given this book many times as gifts to others, always with great reviews. Manning's own deep walk with the Lord shines through this book to every reader.

God is using this book as a benchmark in my spiritual walk. this is something that will stick with me for many years. his views are much like what i think that Jesus would say today.
