Product Description

Review

Don't be deceived by the title, this is the demanding, unyielding, impatient tenderness of God that will break your heart and (if you let it) give your heart new life. --John Ortberg, author of If You Want to Walk on Water, You ve Got to Get Out of the Boat

Compelling . . . .Manning's book offers a radical portrait of discipleship for the modern church. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

...Scorchingly prophetic, breathtakingly transparent, and extravagantly tender. I'm glad I got to learn from him. --John Ortberg, author of Everybody's Normal Til You Get To Know Them

Synopsis

Delves into the life and work of Jesus in order to find the cure for self-hatred, the most critical spiritual dilemma of today, helping readers to understand the true nature and divine message of Jesus in order to achieve self-acceptance.

Brennan Manning never disappoints - and this book is no exception. He writes about the vulnerability of God's children and the very great love and compassion that Christ has for each of us, as individuals. I never tire of reading Brennan Mannings books, they are spiritually uplifting and give me the grace to see life with new eyes, and to look at people compassionately.

A book that focuses on developing one's relationship with Jesus, this looks at many of the hindrances to our spiritual growth which result from self-loathing. Eminently practical and rooted in Biblical truth, this is a book for those who struggle to like themselves and feel perpetually condemned.

5.0 out of 5 stars SEARING! 11 Mar. 2003
By Jason Chua - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read half of this book in less than an hour, seated at BORDERS. I was absolutely mesmerized by the passion, the honesty, and the integrity of the author. I was at times gripped by compassion, at times almost brought to tears, at times feeling myself smiling broadly, all this because the book is written from the heart, straight to the heart.
Brennan Manning addresses the issues of legalism, religion, and the need for the real love of Christ without holding back any punches. He shows himself as an unashamed, unapologetic defender of the truth, and of all who are downtrodden, alienated and sickened by the self-righteous, law-toting wing of present Christianity. He is fearless in his articulation, bold in his assertions, and deeply, tearfully compassionate in his appeals, so he wins the heart of this here ragamuffin Christian!
His protrayal of Jesus will melt your heart. He supplements his own views with great quotes from many notable Christians, bulking up the integrity of this book.
All in all, this is Brennan Manning at his fieriest best, but it is a fire that stands in defense for all who feel a deep need for a true sense of God's love and who aren't receiving it from the church at large. This is one of the best books on the person of Jesus Christ, as it delves deep into His heart.
If you have been hurt by the church and by legalistic Christianity, then this is a book that will bring healing to your soul. Be assured, this isn't a mushy book on God's love. It is not fluff. It is a strong, clear, articulate presentation of the love of Christ and a passionate argument for the revealing of the true heart of Jesus at the same time. Take along tissue; you may laugh and cry all at once reading this!
Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 23 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was the right time in my life to pick up this book. I'm just beginning recovery from alcoholism. My sponsor says that "when the student is ready, the teacher appears." And I consider Brennan now one of those special teachers in my life. He speaks from his heart presenting an intimate God who always loves us as we are and seeks to be in fellowship with us. I've never been a very "spiritual" person, but this book has helped to start me on a journey of relationship with God.
The writing is eloquent and personal but not pretentious or boastful. Manning utilizes dozens of images and depictions of Jesus without being preachy or exegetical. He's not concerned with a particular Christological argument or with proving any points. Instead, he helps the reader to join him in considering the awesomeness of God's love and how God can remove our fears, heal our old wounds, and enable us to forgive ourselves. For me right now these are life and death issues, and I'm grateful for this book's guidance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brennan, you've done it again 23 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This extremely important and absolutely priceless jewel is one of the first to directly address the most pressing spiritual problem of the postmodern age: self-hatred.
We are a generation raised by the TV, the daycare center, the foster half-stepmother. We have not known unconditional love. And we hate ourselves.
Brennan Manning's glimpse of Jesus opens the door to healing. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Hatred--Too Strong? 12 Feb. 2008
By H. Works - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Troubling dissatisfaction with one's self is a widespread problem for many people in our society. With his ability to "cut to the core" of issues faced by so many Christians, he challenges his readers to see in the life and teachings of Jesus His acceptance and recognition as normal this matter, in such a way as to help anyone leave the sense of guilt and failure behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stranger to self-hatred... 16 Sept. 2010
By Nancy M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a powerful book--as all Brennan Manning's are!!! The degree to which we make peace with the parts of ourselves we dislike/hate, is the degree to which we are able to love others. I want to keep growing in God's unconditional love and be set free from self-hatred and accusation from the enemy.
