Brennan Manning writes a text regarding the merciful love of God. This book leans heavily on the side of grace and might even tempt the reader to believe any implications of embracing sin. However, this text also refers to freedom from performing and finding grace & mercy in Christ…which should propel the believer to living an abundant life of the yolk that Jesus promises is not burdensome.
This reviewer would caution the reader(s) to read in light of the truth of the gospel, not in light of “loving God and doing what we want.”
The text can clearly be refreshing, but may also be a little to “free” for those raised in a staunch, traditional church context.
Like any book, aside from the scriptures, there are things to glean from this text and things to sift through.
I received this book for the purpose of review from Multnomah Publishers.
