10 books…you know the drill

Number 5

The furious longing of God by Brennan Manning

***** out of *****

furious-longing

If you could put the groanings of my spirit into words they would read verbatim from this work.

Brennan Manning literally changed my life in college with his book, The signature of Jesus.  He then proceeded to change my world upon the finding of Ragamuffin Gospel.  Brennan Manning was the doorway to Henri Nouwen, Rich Mullins, and Donald Miller.  I’ve been anxiously awaiting his next book and bought it the day it came out.

The furious longing of God explains the why without degrading the how.  A lot of writers today can’t seem to pair the two, yet Manning eloquently sews them together while leaving just enough pull to let you piece them together for yourself.

Hands down 5 out of 5.
