    1. Having read some other works by Manning, I will start off by saying that this book is very similar in theme to his previous works Manning s essential message is the same God loves you, and if you have to tack on any thing else to that statement then you haven t quite gotten the gospel message.Manning s work is a challenge because we all have a tendency to tack on other things to that basic message We say God loves you BUT , God loves you WHEN , or IF you THEN God will love you Far too often we r [...]


    2. A Stirring and Focusing ReadBrennan Manning has written a provocative little devotional that will likely comfort the afflicated while afflicting the comfortable This is a series of short devotional thoughts that should provide fodder for the thoughtful Christian to ruminate over continually.Brennan is known by manner for his honest stream of consciousness type writing and he doesn t disappoint here Whether tying the love of God and Christ as evidenced upon the cross back the the furious passiona [...]


    3. Great inspiring book from one of my favorite authors Here s what is most sticking with me right now Is your own personal prayer life characterized by the simplicity, childlike candor, boundless trust, and easy familiarity of a little one crawling up in Daddy s lap An assured knowing that the daddy doesn t care if the child falls asleep, starts playing with toys, or even starts chatting with little friends, because the daddy knows the child has essentially chosen to be with him for that moment Is [...]


    4. Thought provoking, and well written This book has made me want to investigate other books by this author, probably starting with The Ragamuffin Gospel Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat Up, and Burnt Out I love the authors honesty about himself and his own failings, his lack of self righteousness, and his belief in the gospel of love.


    5. Brennan Manning s recurring theme throughout his 44 year ministry has been that of God seeking intimacy with us As experienced by Mr Manning, a recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, that message of grace and love was developed in his earlier books, including The Ragamuffin Gospel.This newest and very small volume is a sort of love story for the brokenhearted, recounting the tender yet tenacious love of God pursuing us, especially those who feel they can never measure up It is a simp [...]


    6. The number of highlights in a book is a good indicator for how much it hits my deep parts, for how profound or forceful I find it The Furious Longing of God has far highlights than any other book I ve read this year Over and over again, Manning hits hard and deep, reaching into my heart and fanning the flames of my spirit.In a sermon I listened to a few months ago, John Piper asserts that holy affections the passionate emotions reaching out to God are just important as right theology Manning id [...]


    7. Brennan Manning is kind of a Richard Rohrish guy He writes about things like God whispering to us You will know that you are being seen by Jesus with a gaze of infinite tenderness Hmm In my flesh, I would prefer a look of admiration or some affirmation of my efforts Good job, Sally Jesus cheering from the bleachers as I hit a home run.But truly I am still learning that I am nothing And the only kind of baseball going on would involve Jesus propping me up while helping me to hold the bat and to s [...]



    8. This book is Brennan Manning as he usually is That is not necessarily a bad thing Manning can be an acquired taste It is one I enjoy His basic story is this You can not sin so much that God can not forgive you We are all ragamuffins and God loves each one of us We have to learn to walk in that love For people like Brennan, this can be hard, because sometimes we do not love ourselves and we get self destructive I would suggest it to all as a look at what I think that Christianity is all about, it [...]


    9. Written in the style or manner of a devotional Brennan tackles a variety of topics around God s love for us and our response to Him Some chapters were only a page or two long whilst others were 15 20 pages A mixture of poetry, Scripture, commentary, observation, experience and challenge.


    10. Whenever the name of an author appears larger than the title of the book, we re being told something And that s this This book is about the author than the content the voice rather than the words on the page.That s not always a bad thing pick up any CS Lewis book and you ll see the name in something like 150pt type and the title in something considerably less And honestly it won t matter it s all the same good Of course, you don t really need the name on the cover the voice is so distinctive yo [...]


    11. If you believe in God or a just reading books on faith I would send you straight to Brennan Manning In fact I would suggest you read them in chronological order From younger Manning to his death bed I knew this author and he keeps everything simple ,honest and straightforward Nowadays books on faith seem to be about leadership Manning consistently writes about God s Love for you Oh and don t think you are going to be lectured or judged, that is not who he was I don t know how many writer s I wil [...]


    12. Powerful message for such a short book The theme is easily accessible, and Manning continually reiterates it and illustrates it, which is fine it is a beautiful message Distilled, his theme comes from Gal 5 6 which he quotes the only thing that matters is the faith that expresses itself in love In practical terms, does the love of God determine everything I do the why and the how Have I moved the idea of God s love from my head to my heart and, thus, my actions I KNOW the concept do I ACT on it, [...]


    13. Oh my word, what a gem of a little book This finally arrived on Saturday afternoon, and I d finished it by bed time And now, on Monday, I m halfway through it again This book will become so tatty and rag earred, I suspect I will some day have to replace it with a fresh copy Brennan Manning describes so honestly, so rawly, so tenderly, but so too so confrontingly how intimate, deep, unfathomable and dependable is God s love for us And so too, the power which feels like too aggressive a word, but [...]


    14. Brennan shares in this volume many of the ideas and stories we have heard when he speaks at conferences and retreats Here are those I ve got to remember what he has said moments gathered in this small book that is well worth the purchase price Brennan continues in his long line of spiritually liberating book that share the grace of God, our Abba, better than any other teacher I have heard Brennan doesn t pretend to be a spiritual giant but shares with his readers what he s learned of God s grace [...]


    15. Brennan Manning s latest work focuses on the yearning of God toward the human condition Manning fills this book with short anecdotes about the life he has lived, but the stories are not the center of the book In this short work, Manning points out our normal stereotypes of God, including some that he has possessed in his past, and shows that the God of the Bible furiously longs to have fellowship with his children This is not an angry, judgemental God, but one that calls all to love and repentan [...]


    16. It breaks my heart that there are so many harmful messages i.e bad theology out there that are keeping people away from the God who IS LOVE.Thankfully, Brennan Manning s books are refreshing water for dry and thirsty souls who so desperately need to hear of the furious longing of God for them Brennan reminds us that Love is not just a quality of God, but his very Identity One of my favorite quotes from the book is this Jesus spoke of the Life of Grace, amazing grace, not as some theological abst [...]


    17. This book was amazing and just what I needed Sometimes we get so wrapped up in trying to understand God that we forget that He already understands us completely than we know ourselves And we can and should just rest in that Knowing that He loves me and you SO deeply and passionately makes me feel a little wildIn a good way I love books that make you think, evaluate and challenge how you perceive things This is one of those books for me I m not saying it s for everyone, but it was definitely righ [...]


    18. I ve been reading and re reading Manning s work for longer than any other Christian writer There s a reason I keep returning insofar as human language can describe or draw us into God s furious love and longing for us, Manning is able to do this better than anyone I ve ever read His fiercest critics decry his work as a waste of time and seem to dismiss it as total fluff But for one who has encountered her profound brokenness again and again, Manning s words can draw for me a picture of the heart [...]


    19. The furious longing of God What s that mean To some, I m sure, their first thought is, Well, yeah, isn t God always ticked of Furious in the context of the longing of God or the love of God, is like a furious wind storm ENSEenergy The love of God for me is that intense, that deep, that strong and it is not dependent on my behavior, my earning it or my deserving it in any way This is a book I ll read over and over again, as are two other Brennan Manning books, The Ragamuffing Gospel and Abba s Ch [...]


    20. In this the second last of 22 books that Brennan Manning has released, the 77 year old author doesn t waver from his basic message God s love for us is intense, relentless, furious, and at the same time gentle and ever tender Manning, also the author of Abba s Child, Stranger To Self Hatred, Ruthless Trust,and his most popular book The Ragamuffin Gospel, continues to shatter our images of God as aloof, curmudgeonly, and stingy What we are left with are words that once again pierce our hearts and [...]


    21. This is the first Brennan Manning I ve read, and I like certain things about it He s a great story teller, and he had a few very profound interpretations of what Jesus was about I liked that However, his basic image and premise that God is sort of like a raging ocean, furiously longing for us was not actually developed so much as asserted It might be true and the imagery about it was really thought provoking he doesn t actually develop the theme, but simply repeats it.This did, however, make me [...]


    22. I always like Brennan Manning books This one was a good reminder of how much God longs to be in relationship with us He always reminds us that Healing becomes the opportunity to pass off to another human being what I have received from the Lord Jesus namely His unconditional acceptance of me as I am, not as I should be He loves me whether in a state of grace or disgrace, whether I live up to the lofty expectations of His gospel or I don t He comes to me where I live and loves me as I am.


    23. This is the first book by Brennan Manning I ve read, and he is such a simply beautiful gift The book is not long, it is not filled with haunting, romantic language it is simply, staggeringly, hauntingly true The theme, found in the title, resonates that God s love for each of us rages in its ferocity like a storm at sea, and we have the option of hiding in what is known and familiar, or thrusting ourselves fully into the raging, cleansing, extravagant love of God.


    24. Manning continues the themes that I read from the The Ragamuffin Gospel Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat Up, and Burnt Out God s immeasurable grace A short yet powerful read Reminding us that the Love of God is a powerful force in a broken world.


    25. I read the ebook and listened to the audio the same time It was life changing for me It made me look at God as my ABBA, which in all my Bible study and relationship with God, I have ever done.I run to my physical daddy at the moment of needwhy haven t I been doing that with my spiritual Daddy I m learning and about the true love not a fairy tale love of ABBA It s changed how I pray.It s the first I ve read anything of Manning s and I ll be going back for .


    26. This is my first read by author, Brennan Manning I absolutely loved the book It is a very short book, just a little over 100 pages, but the size of the book does not match its depth Brennan dives deeply into the radical concept of God s furious love for each one of us He loves us just as we are, not as we should be.


    27. This is a shorter than usual, but typical Manning book Some may tire of the same message, and Manning can often sound like a broken record, but for those of us yearning for grace and acceptance, no one proclaims the heart of God like this man The bonus to this book is that it has questions for reflection after each chapter.


    28. Not much different from his magnum opus the Ragamuffin Gospel, but as Lewis said, We need to be reminded than instructed Great little book on being loved by God what else will Manning want to ever talk about.


    29. Challenging chapters to one s faith outlook and life application Each perspective ends with two relevant questions to contemplate the thoughts personally.Recommended addition to a reader s faith life library.
