Description

Product Description

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.

About the Author

Brennan Manning spent forty years helping others experience the reality of God’s love and grace. It was at the heart of everything he wrote and did. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, his spiritual journey took him down a variety of paths. He taught seminarians, spoke to packed arenas, lived in a cave and labored with the poor in Spain, and ministered to shrimpers in Alabama. Brennan is best-known as the author of the contemporary classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba’s Child, Ruthless Trust, and The Importance of Being Foolish. He went home to be with the Lord in 2013.

The Furious Longing of God was recommended to me by a young Episcopalian priest after I asked for reading suggestions. I didn''t think that I was having a crisis of faith. Instead, I thought I had questions about faith. After reading the first chapter of Brennan Manning''s book, I realized with some embarrassment that I was looking at my faith backward. I was the person who patted herself on the back for regularly attending church, taking the Read the Bible in a Year challenge and throwing in a good deed here and there. This small book, which packs a huge wallop, was a game changer for me. I savored every word and even read it twice. It now rests next to my bed as a kind of touchstone. Brennan Manning addresses his thoughts to Everyman. He does not preach. He does not hold himself out to be a spiritual magician who can transform his readers as we reach the last page. Instead, he comes across as a guy I would love to spend a few hours with at a coffee shop having a back-and-forth conversation.

By integrating Scripture and writings from several philosophers (and Shel Silverstein!), he explains the true meaning of Christian faith to me. Jesus becomes a regular guy instead of someone whose wrath is to be feared. Some might consider the idea of Jesus as a surfer dude, someone to hang with, someone who talks in my vernacular to be blasphemous. On the contrary; I love this Jesus, and most important, he loves me, warts and all. Framed on my bedside table are the following words: "Abba, I belong to you." and "I am my beloved''s and His desire is for me." For anyone struggling with becoming a better Christian, a more God-like person, Brennen Manning convinced me that Jesus loves me just as I am. What a comforting thought, that carries unintended consequences of striving harder to be a true Christian who walks in Jesus''s love.

Brennan Manning writes about God''s love for us no matter what we''ve done to run, dodge, deflect, or reject that love. His message took wings with The Ragamuffin Gospel and was reemphasized with books on emphatic faith (Ruthless Trust) and emphatic gentleness (Relentless Tenderness of Jesus). In this book from 2009, he speaks again of God''s determination to love us, come what may, supported with his own experience, biblical passages, and quotes from a broad spectrum of spiritual writers in a few brief chapters. Most chapters could be the basis for a great deal of personal reflection, even without the points to ponder that end most of them. I read a chapter a day as part of my morning prayer time, and that worked for me. This is a book to be sipped and savored.

I''m not one to write many reviews but this book was so life changing that I knew I had to. It took me a week to make it past the first half of the book because I kept reading and rereading it. It was like the picture of my life unfolding on the pages of this book. striving to try and feel worthy of God''s presence in my life, beating myself up at any slight imperfection. Not realizing God loves me no matter what I do or don''t do. I am a daughter of the King and all He truly seeks from me is a relationship and my love. Everything else I do for the kingdom has to flow out of that place of love and relationship or I will burn myself out and my impact on those around me will be minimal compared to what the love of our Abba Father can do. Read this book if you read nothing else this year!

Manning writes with the force of raw prose but the music of poetry. Thus he speaks to the deepest longings, fears and hopes in my heart. He speaks of "Abba''s love," Papa''s love for us. I keep repeating the sentence that he has shared with others. "Abba, I belong to you." It''s a confession that has worked miracles in the lives of people who doubted God''s forgiveness and love. And what moving and on-target stories he shares with us, from his own life and the lives of those he has touched.

I think this part of the FOREWORD tells it all. "Remember, the Father desires to say something to YOU in these pages. Such is His furious affection for YOU. Such is His love for YOU." He builds on his key biblical text, Song of Solomon 7:10: "I am my beloved''s, and his desire is for me." That is the Father''s desire for each of us. It is His "furious longing."

I found myself going deeper -- and deeper -- into the feeling and knowing that God loves me without any reservations. He wants to unite with me and me to unite with Him. "It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me." (Galatians 2:20). YES! As I read this book, and plan to re-read it many times, that is the union both my Father and I desire.

I started reading Brennan Manning in 2003, when I was in a spiritual wilderness recovering from some deep wounding experienced in ministry overseas. His book, Abba''s Child, helped me sort through the pain and confusion, leading me to God''s Word and to understanding His love. I read his classic, The Ragamuffin Gospel, quite sometime later and was blessed by the life-changing message of God''s unswerving, overwhelming love made possible only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Manning''s, The Furious Longing Of God, was a great devotional read this Thanksgiving week. His poetic storytelling, quotes, and references to Scripture refreshed and challenged me to forgive as I have been forgiven, love as He loves, and rest in the knowledge of His trustworthiness. His repeated reminder that "I belong to Abba" is perhaps the greatest takeaway. If you''ve not yet read Manning, this is a good place to start; if Manning is an old friend, this is one not to be missed.

Although I by no means have left my faith behind. I have left many Christian authors behind . I find that many Christian works lack anything that is worth value outside of it''s own lens. So I have had the painful experience of leaving beloved authors behind. They are like clothes that no longer fit. I have always had very strong adoration for Manning and his story. I was afraid of having to say goodbye to him too. But in these pages I still found the immense power of humility and intellect. It feels much like the same indescribable and furious longing that has me not leaving my faith behind as well.

Brennan Manning''s The Furious Longing of God (2009) must have been a free Kindle offering some time back. I don''t recall ever thinking that I must get a book from Brennan Manning. In fact, I confess I had never heard of him. He is probably best known for The Ragamuffin Gospel, a book that deeply influenced the late Rich Mullins.

Manning is many things. He is a recovering alcoholic, writer, and former Franciscan priest. He writes like a poet, employing beautiful language in often rambling prose. He gets to his destination eventually, though he is not afraid to take unplanned detours along the way.

The Furious Longing of God is about what it says. It is about a God who loves His children passionately. He presents a view of God who rejoices over His children with loud singing (Zephaniah 3:17 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] ). He seems to be calling us to remember, every day, the love of God. He then calls us to live in light of that love, pouring our lives into others.

This is most certainly an engaging text. Manning writes beautifully. He calls the believer to experience and understand God in ways that many of us probably never have. This book, if read carefully, will probably generate more emotion than most books. With that said, I don''t think he is careful with his theology. He doesn''t necessarily set out to be, but I think that some may read his work and come away with a different, or perhaps incomplete, impression of who God truly is. In any case, this book is a good read, especially for us more cerebral types.

"In human beings, love is a quality, a high-prized virtue; in God, love is His identity."-Brennan Manning

Brennan Manning at times seems to tap into dimensions of our relationship with God that I had never considered before, and his book The Furious Longing Of God is a great example of this.

It is almost foreign in a Christian’s vocabulary, or even understanding of Scripture, to think of God furiously longing for a relationship with the people He has created. But God does long for this, and Manning pulls out those biblical passages and weaves them together with his own life story to create a hunger in us for more of God.

Each chapter builds on the previous chapter, creating in me a longing to experience God’s longing. This book is not difficult to read, but it is confronting. I doubt you can read Manning’s words are remain unmoved by God’s passionate, relentless, furious longing for you.

If you too long for a deeper relationship with your Creator, this is a great book to help you on that journey.

This is an excellent book especially if you struggle with a God of love! Brennan Manning has been through a lot in his life and through those experiences came to know the amazing love that God has for him and for everyone of us. He makes it clear that we don''t have to do anything to earn God''s love - He loves us simply for who we are ! No matter what we may have done, no matter what our background, God loves us passionately. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
