Most Christians believe in God’s grace—in theory. But somehow we can’t seem to apply it in our daily lives. We continue to see Him as a small-minded bookkeeper, tallying our failures and successes on a score sheet. Yet God gives us His grace, willingly, no matter what we’ve done. We come to Him as ragamuffins—dirty, bedraggled, and beat up. And when we sit at His feet, He smiles upon us, the chosen objects of His “furious love.” Brennan Manning’s now-classic meditation on grace and what it takes to access it—simple honesty—has changed thousands of lives. It will change yours, too.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Manning is without doubt one of the most eloquent writers on the subject of grace because he openly shares his own pain and struggle to help readers deal with failure and inadequacy.” Amazon.com Editorial Review
“Manning’s work comes with a foreword and a testimony, both evidence of its power. That’s a heavy load, but the book largely lives up to it. Scott Brick’s delivery helps; it may even be better read aloud than silently…Brick’s voice is both dramatic and reassuring.” AudioFile
