Product Description

Review

Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off of shop-worn theology and allowing God s grace to do what only God s grace can do amaze.
"-Max Lucado, Bestselling author of The Gift for All People
"
I found deep comfort in realizing that Jesus loves even me, a ragamuffin, just as I am.
"-Michael Card, Musician, recording artist, and author of A Violent Grace
"
This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good.
"-Eugene Peterson, Author of The Message"" --Eugene Peterson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

"The tendency in legalistic religion is to mistrust God, to mistrust others, and consequently to mistrust ourselves. Allow me to become personal for a moment. Do you really believe that the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is gracious, that he cares about you? Do you really believe that he is always, unfailingly, present to you as companion and support? Do you really believe that God is love?"
With these words Brennan Manning challenges us to ask ourselves if we really believe. Are we willing to cast aside our action steps, our striving human effort, and make room for the God who is present, gracious, and who does care for us? Read this book and find out why you should.

This book by Brennan Manning is absolutely inspired! The book is about how much God loves us - 'warts and all'. It teaches us to accept His grace and to understand that we are worthy of His love and that we have His understanding and acceptance even though we may be spiritual 'ragamuffins'! This book really opened my eyes to the awesome power of God's love and mercy. It has also encouraged me to draw closer to God and appreciate the wonderful life He has given me.
This is a must read book for Christians and for those considering becoming Christians. I have purchased several copies to give away to friends, and all who have read it have told me how much it has positively affected them.

Hold this book in your hand, and you hold dynamite that is ready to blow apart your misconceptions about God and His "furious love" for you. The constant offer of acceptance, love and forgiveness is explored in great simplicity and yet depth. I was stunned and awed by what I read. This really is good news. As a total ragamuffin who has found the message of this book to be lifechanging, I heartily commend it to you. That God really is this good, this kind and this passionate about us - I stand amazed and thankful. Buy this and read it, and buy another one to give away. You will be glad you did :)))

The Ragamuffin Gospel deserves 5 stars as a book, but the AUTHENTIC CLASSICS edition is full of typos and so badly laid out that it is difficult to read (for example 'ran' instead of 'can', whiskey served with IRE rather than ICE). I returned it and got the MULTNOMAH edition - what a difference! Clearly laid out and no typos. Please do buy this book but make sure you get an edition worthy of the text!

Just as in Jesus' time, many religious sorts today live by the letter of the law, rather than the Spirit - rendering Jesus' message largely ineffective.
Manning reminds us that Jesus set us free from living our lives according to a bunch of rules, - he paid the price for our sins; past, present and future so that we could live under the perfect law of freedom.

With scripture, anecdotes and personal stories he exposes the lies and tactics that we use on ourselves, or that are foisted on us by others that ultimately serve to manipulate us, or bring us back into that position where we live by the letter of the law rather than by the Spirit.

And most of all Manning helps us to see ourselves through God's eyes and understand the immense and unfathomable love that he has for each of us. And in doing so we no longer need to "act" righteous, but instead can admit our faults and struggles comfortable in the knowledge that Jesus' loves ragamuffins and that the goal of Christianity isn't to put on a facade of righteousness, but to acknowledge our struggles and truly understand and appreciate exactly why Jesus died for us. (And he points out that ironically, when churchgoers hide their shortcomings they actually create an atmosphere in which those most in need of Jesus - those with big problems - feel out-of-place).

This book is a must for those who struggle or have always recognized (or at least suspected) that many of those spit-and-polished people at church have more problems then they let on. And for those who are tired of kicking themselves and are ready to embrace Jesus' love and finally declare once and for all that there is no condemnation in Christ.

It should also be noted that Manning in no way encourages sin, but shows that accepting God's free gift without question is the first step toward living the best life that we can and facing our struggles without guilt and self-loathing.

And excellent book!

This book is superb, it opened my eyes and mind to a whole new way of thinking. As a fairly new Christian I was continuously striving to become better in all that I did, that in itself wasn't wrong, but feeling worthless every time I failed was a road heading to disaster. Now thanks too this book I know that God love's me as long as I truly love Him.
However, Brennan does tend to use words that I needed a dictionary which can be a bit off-putting and could spoil the context of the information being given. Generally speaking, this book is well worth reading.

"Visual version" was NOT highlighted on the product info when I bought this ... waste ... of paper. It is summat that Banksy or a US pumped up version might have created. I was quite shocked to see that BM himself had lent his support for it, which must have not been long before the poor fella passed over. His words are ace in the original and the images are spirit and imagination, you do NOT need the type face or clashes of colour in this tripe. I bought it for a deeply spiritual mate, who am sure is struggling to even turn the pages. No thanks. I will get an original simple paperback. I have bought several for friends and family and they were fine.
