This book challenges our common way of imcomplete surrender to Jesus Christ. It exposes our tendency to hold back on our commitment to God.
It does not promote over-activity as a way to serve God. Indeed, that is one of those things that it exposes, as the author points out that such over-activity can actually hide our lack of devotion.
The book does not come from the evangelical background that I normally read. There is a broader view of Christian life, which is thought-provoking and uncomfortable at times.
This book needs to be read thoughtfully. We should urgently apply its lessons into our lives, that we might become more effective in our service, and more real in our worship.

Both Brennan Manning books The Ragamuffin Gospel and The Importance of being Foolish, are wonderful descriptions of God's magnificent love for us and the wonderful gift of love He gave to the world in Jesus Christ and His death on the cross. No matter how low we sink God will never refuse to pick us up, brush us down and start us afresh in Jesus. Praise God.

Brennan Mannen points the way to Jesus with every word he writes, in such a way that He enables you to see yourself as Father sees you, and lifts you up into the realms of extreme possibilites. Highly recommend
