Review

For every thirsty pilgrim who has wandered life s desert of brokenness seeking an oasis of grace, your search is over. --Philip Gulley, author of Just Shy of Harmony

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"

A passionate, luminously articulate challenge to Christians to move beyond fashionable idolatries and become authentic followers of Jesus....resonant with intelligence and imaginative power --The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

From the Back Cover

Brennan Manning writes that all changes in the quality of a person's life must grow out of a change in that person's vision of reality. He argues that by relating to God as the heart of tenderness, we can begin to develop a spiritual life that lets go of worry, stops organizing everything as means to an end, and begins to live fully in the awareness of God's infinite grace and mercy in each moment. By accepting the tenderness of God, our hearts will begin to open, our minds can discern truth, and we can more readily see the divine in others.
Manning calls into question the prevailing vision of God as a remote overlord who alternately purveys judgment and blessings to his creatures below. He shows how this distorted image of God leads to a spirituality that is shallow and how it is ultimately in conflict with the message of the Gospel.
Rooted in his compelling grasp of God as a loving parent, Manning gently invites us to embrace the unfathomable mercy, grace, and love of God. A profound exploration of the challenges of Christian living, The Wisdom of Tenderness leads
