Brennan Manning spent forty years helping others experience the
reality of God's love and grace. It was at the heart of everything
he wrote and did. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan
priest, his spiritual journey took him down a variety of paths. He
taught seminarians, spoke to packed arenas, lived in a cave and
labored with the poor in Spain, and ministered to shrimpers in
Alabama. Brennan is best-known as the author of the contemporary
classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba's Child,
Ruthless Trust, and The Importance of Being Foolish.
He went home to be with the Lord in 2013.
"Brennan's memoir is at once unvarnished and confessional, grippingly honest and poignantly tender. An unguarded peek into a life marked by foibles and blessings, gifts and pain, joy and regret. But always, in every paragraph, grace. Brennan lived it, experienced it, and grasped the extraordinary power of God's great gift."Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author
