Publishers Description Is an imposter robbing you of God's love? Many Christians have bought into the lie that we are worthy of God's love only when our lives are going well. If our families are happy or our jobs are meaningful, life is a success. But when life begins to fall through the cracks and embarrassing sins threaten to reveal our less-than-perfect identity, we scramble to keep up a good front to present to the world- and God. We cower and hide until we can rearrange the mask of perfection and look good again. Sadly, it is then that we wonder why we lack intimate relationships and a passionate faith. Yes all this time God is calling us to take the mask off and come openly to Him. God longs for us to know in the depth of our being that He loves us and accepts us as we are. When we are true selves, we can finally claim our identity as God's child-Abba's child-and experience His pleasure in who we are. Brennan Manning encourages readers to let go of the imposter lifestyle and freely accept our belovedness as a child of the heavenly Father. In Him there is life, our passion is rekindled, and our union with Him is His greatest pleasure.

This is a deeply spiritual book that gives so much insight to ideas that many Christians won't look at. I have grown in my faith by reading it.
Abba's Child by Brannon Manning Sep 19, 2007
This book has been such a blessing to my life. It has helped me know God's love for me and His awesome grace and reconciliation. I have read it at least twenty times and get something new every time as it challenges me to believe in ways that do not seem natural for me. I have shared this book with numerous others and most of them have told me that it has had a major impact on the way they see God the Father now. I can not recommend this book enough. Jack deFluiter
