Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

It has been over twenty years since the publication of The Ragamuffin Gospel, a book many claim as the shattering of God’s grace into their lives. Since that time, Brennan Manning has been dazzingly faithful in preaching and writing variations on that singular theme –   
“Yes, Abba is very fond of you!”
 
But today the crowds are gone and the lights are dim, the patches on his knees have faded. If he ever was a ragamuffin, truly it is now. In this his final book, Brennan roves back his past, honoring the lives of the people closest to him, family and friends who’ve known the saint and the sinner, the boy and the man. Far from some chronological timeline, these memories are witness to the truth of life by one who has lived it – All Is Grace

5.0 su 5 stelle The most honest of all his books 1 dicembre 2016
Di MH - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I have tried reading his other books and frankly felt a bit bored with the many words he used and excessive usage of quotes and stories. Reading his other books, I felt that I was not getting the full story, just hints and glimpses into the struggles he had with living in the Father's love and grace. As such, I felt that there was something genuine missing from his other writings. It just did not feel that authentic to me.

In this book, I was riveted with his honest, vulnerable account of a deeply flawed man struggling with destructive tendencies who ultimately keeps returning to God despite his rather sensational falls. His life story actually supports the revelational truth that he staked his ministry on: "God loves you as you are and not as you should be since none of us are as we should be." Very powerful testimony of one's man journey to find God in the midst of personal train wrecks.

Di TypeFace - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Disturbed. That's the best word I know to describe how I felt after finishing this book--but not for the reasons one might think. I was disturbed in a good way (more about that later). Having read much of Brennan Manning's work over the years, I was looking forward to hearing his story in his own words. I wanted to know the missing pieces, to understand better how the ragamuffin came to be such a wounded healer. I had gathered parts of Manning's story from his books and messages. However, hearing the earthy descriptions of some of his setbacks surprised me--but then again they didn't.

Manning has had an unusual life compared to some, full of diverse experiences in Europe and the United States (military service, joining a Franciscan order, campus ministry, leaving the priesthood, marriage, becoming a prolific author and speaker). However, his struggles are the struggles of every man who is not afraid to admit his humanity and need for God's grace. Just substitute the names and details of your own heartaches, failings, and fractured relationships. However, he's also been blessed to have dedicated, grace-giving friends who have lavished him with love along the way, a reflection of God's heart.

Throughout the book, I found myself hitting two buttons over and over--the thirty-second rewind and the stop--to meditate on a profound thought or reflect on how something Manning wrote informed an aspect of my own life.

Manning wanted to be brutally honest in sharing his story--though admittedly, he chose to leave parts out. Nevertheless, what he did share about his upbringing, the lack of a close relationship with his mother (he does know the freedom of forgiveness regarding this issue), leaving the priesthood, a marriage that ended in divorce, and his life-long struggle with alcoholism was revealing. As the apt title infers, that someone who wrestled as he did could write books that have brought healing to so many ("The Ragmuffin Gospel," "Abba's Child," and more) is evidence of the grace of God in his life--and through Brennan Manning, to us.

In his old age, he has three words to answer the question of how someone who wrote the books he did could repeatedly lapse into alcoholism. "These things happen." He responds to critics who say he preaches a cheap grace, saying "not so," that his message is a "banana peel" to the orthodox.

The narrator did an excellent job--his style was conversational, his inflections were appropriate. His speaking cadence was neither too fast nor too slow (as in some audiobooks). In short, I felt as though I was sitting in a large comfy chair in a cozy room by a fireplace, listening to Brennan Manning share from his heart.

So how did this book "disturb" me. It reminded me of what I know but need to remember every day--that the Savior came to bind up the broken-hearted, offering His yoke to those with heavy burdens, that we bring nothing to Him except our brokenness--and that is really where it starts for those who are truly poor in spirit (Matthew 5:3).

If you haven't read any of Brennan Manning's books, read them and then read this one-- or read this one first and then marvel at the wisdom that only a broken man can dispense.*****

5.0 su 5 stelle The final word from the late great Brennan Manning 16 aprile 2017
Di Chris Massa - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

If you're already a fan of the late great Brennan Manning, you hardly need me to recommend this book to you. "The Ragamuffin Gospel," "Abba's Child," "The Furious Longing of God," etc. These and others have rightly become spiritual classics. And "All Is Grace" is my favorite. It is a bracingly honest book, written in simple, beautiful prose, without a hint of flowery pretense, and it is all the more powerful and authentic for it. There are things in "Abba's Child" that he is never spoken of before, and there are things that even here, in his final book, he couldn't bring himself to write about. But the wells of grace run deep through every word, and the good news of the gospel comes into sharp relief by the end. As wonderful as "The Ragamuffin Gospel" is, I think it is possible to read it and think two thoughts simultaneously: "Wow, God is good," and "Wow, Brennan Manning is a great writer." Not so here. In this lucid journey through his memory, Manning disappears, and the loving arms of Abba Father become even more apparent.

And if I may speak to the uninitiated for a moment: No matter what kind of theology you hold to — or don't hold to — I'd recommend adding a dose of Brennan Manning to your reading. I know people who despise him, who write him off as a peddler of cheap grace. Never mind them. I'm not saying that their critiques are completely unfounded, but I do think they miss the point. For all the preachers and writers who (correctly!) tell you that becoming a Christian will and should change your life, it's good to have someone like Brennan Manning to remind you that, well, sometimes this transformation doesn't happen all at once, and sometimes it doesn't happen in the areas of your life that you want it to happen in, and sometimes, frankly, you're left struggling with the same stupid sins your entire life. Manning doesn't celebrate or glorify his shortcomings, far from it, but he is honest about them, and in this way, he is an antidote to the quick-fix wishful-thinking best-life-now quasi-Christian gurus. And if you're going to read some Manning, I can't think of a better place to begin than "All Is Grace". It's not as elegant or literary as some of his work, but it may be his most beautiful, his most plainspoken, his most transparently humble.

To summarize, this is a great book, one of most life-giving I have read. I recommend it to everyone who has had enough life experiences to recognize the truth of Brennan Manning's message. It's not always pretty, but it is the gospel of grace. Let it overwhelm you.

5.0 su 5 stelle To Wrestle with God Is to know Him 25 ottobre 2015
Di Paul - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Jacob wrestled, Jacob was changed, and God was revealed. We see the same in the life of Brennan Manning - wrestling, changing , and Gods grace revealed. Intimacy may not develop the way we expect, but we cannot argue the transformation of the heart regardless of the battle with the flesh. God is revealed. Joy even in our pain because the presence of God is with us in Jesus - through His Spirit and the body of Christ. Even in our failing we stand justified in Jesus Christ. All is grace; He is our righteousness and our life. There is hope seen in messy lives and our hope has a name: Jesus. We see Jesus lifted high as our hope in this book. ~ Paul Widmark

4.0 su 5 stelle An Honest and Inspirational Memoir 2 ottobre 2011
Di Danny J - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I have been looking forward to this book for some time now. I had read countless books, articles, stories, and interviews by and about Brennan and I was hoping his memoir would shed a little more light into his life and ministry. 'All is Grace' did not disappoint.
I will agree with other reviews by saying that the book is somewhat short and, at times, leaves you wanting more. In the same breath, however, I will say that the book was worth the wait and every penny spent. ALL IS GRACE is a glimpse of the real Brennan Manning. The grace that he so often speaks of is not just a popular or favorite topic of his, it's his lifeline. It is the rope that connects a self-admitted lying, alcoholic, divorced ex-priest to a holy, loving God.
I recommend this book to everyone, especially ministers, like myself, who feel desperately inadequate in our desire and mission to properly represent a God that we really have no business representing. This book shows that God is bigger than our sin, our hypocrisy, and our self-hatred. He does not need us, He WANTS us.
