I’m taking part in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge April 2017 with the theme of books. I’ll be blogging about the books on my Goodreads shelf that I’ve read or want to read.
Today’s letter is A and the book I’ve chosen is All is Grace by Brennan Manning, a memoir. I really enjoyed listening to this on audiobook and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys memoirs/biographies. As Brennan himself says he is a survivor and is very honest about his life. It is upsetting at times but very inspirational throughout.
Here’s the Goodreads blurb:
“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 dazzlingly 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, honouring 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 time-line, these memories are witness to the truth of life by one who has lived it.”
