Many believers feel stunted in their Christian growth. We beat ourselves up over our failures and, in the process, pull away from God because we subconsciously believe He tallies our defects and hangs His head in disappointment. In this newly repackaged editionnow with full appendix, and the authors own epilogue, The Scandal of Grace: Fifteen Years Later, Brennan Manning reminds us that nothing could be further from the truth. The Father beckons us to Himself with a furious love that burns brightly and constantly. Only when we truly embrace Gods grace can we bask in the joy of a gospel that enfolds the most needy of His flockthe ragamuffins.
Are you bedraggled, beat-up, burnt-out?
Most of us believe in Gods gracein theory. But somehow we cant seem to apply it in our daily lives. We continue to see Him as a small-minded bookkeeper, tallying our failures and successes on a score sheet.
Yet God gives us His grace, willingly, no matter what weve done. We come to Him as ragamuffinsdirty, bedraggled, and beat-up. And when we sit at His feet, He smiles upon us, the chosen objects of His furious love.
Brennan Mannings now-classic meditation on grace and what it takes to access itsimple honestyhas changed thousands of lives. Now with a Ragamuffins thirty-day spiritual journey guide, it will change yours, too.
Includes a 19-Day Spiritual Journey Guide!
Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off of shop-worn theology and allowing Gods grace to do what only Gods grace can doamaze.

This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good.

Story Behind the Book
The world assigns value to people using measurable standards. Someone is a successful student if she receives As. Someone is a strong athlete if he runs five miles a day. The Lord, however, knows nothing of standards.The Ragamuffin Gospel was inspired by Brennan Manning after he discovered firsthand what it means to live by grace instead of performance. His words bring new life and sweet refreshment to Christians who are tired of never measuring up.

We bought this book for a bible study. Manning is a bit of a rebel. He is a former priest, an alcoholic and divorced. That is his point....this is not for the proud and haughty Super-Christian. It is written for Sinners! Go ahead and buy it. You can get it significantly cheaper on overstock. They ship real fast too. Enjoy.Read More
