Furious Longing of God by Brennan Manning
Have you ever read a book and when finished thought that this was one of the most life changing books you have ever read and you wanted to tell all your friends?
I just finished that life changing book. THE Furious Longing Of God by Brennan Manning was that book.
Who is Brennan? Priest, monk, drunk, adulterer. Yes. Passionately in love with God. Yes.
In this book he shows how such complex and profound opposites can be reality.
It sounds like an oxymoronic statement but it is true.
GOD has come to meet us where we are at NOW!!
We don't need to be perfect just real.
We don't need to be wise just loving.
Here is what the publisher had to say:
Imagine a stormy day at sea, your ship yielding to a relentless wind, pummeled by crashing waves, subject to the awesome force of nature. A force that is both fierce and majestic. A power that is nothing short of furious.
Such is God's intense, consuming love for His children. It's a love that knows no limits, and no boundaries. A love that will go to any lengths, and take any risks, to pursue us.
Renowned author and ragamuffin Brennan Manning presents a love story for the brokenhearted. For those who are burdened by heavy religion. For those who feel they can never measure up. It is a provocative and poignant look at the radical, no-holds-barred love of our Heavenly Father. It is a message that will forever change how you view God.
If you have never read a book by this author then pick up Raggamuffin Gospel and then this his second work the two combined will shatter your normal existence and cause you to live life in a new real.
A reality of LOVE for all.
