    Book details


A daily meditation for every day of the year, drawn from Brennan Manning's writings. In biblical terms, ragamuffins are 'the poor in spirit, those who were little in their own sight, those who were conscious of their nakedness and poverty before God and who thus cast themselves without reservation on his mercy.' Manning believes 'this is the spirit that God looks for in his people . . .It compounds a sense of personal powerlessness with unfailing confidence in the love of God and total surrender to the guidance of his will.

I consider Brennan Manning to be my spiritual director in the school of grace. I can't stop learning about it, and fortunately, he can't stop writing about it. I welcome this collection as a treasury of that great theme. --Philip Yancey, author of The Jesus I Never Knew and What's So Amazing About Grace?No other writer today so passionately calls us to face our brokenness and enter Abba's heart. In Reflections for Ragamuffins Brennan has written more than a daily devotional. This is healing medicine for the desperate beggars we all are before God. --Dr. Larry Crabb, Psychologist, author of 14 books, including Connecting, Understanding People, Finding God, and Inside OutSo much religion is conveyed to us as bad news or bland news that we are immensely grateful when it is spoken freshly as good news. This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good. --Eugene Peterson, author of Leap Over a WallBrennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off shop-worn theology and allowing God's grace to do what only God's grace can do: amaze. --Max Lucado, author of In the Grip of GraceSo much religion is conveyed to us as bad news or bland news that we are immensely grateful when it is spoken freshly as good news. This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good. --Eugene Peterson, author of Leap Over a Wall -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Paperback.

Review Text

  • By J. Harding on 4 January 2014

    This is a new book for me but recognised the name of the author from meetings I had attended. It seems to be well written and thought provoking and I am looking forward to delving into the various daily readings.

  • By Yvonne Lee on 2 May 2013

    This is a great way to start the day. Each daily reading makes you think. It's both challenging and encouraging. The love of God comes across so strongly. The books a real blessing, and I'm glad I bought a copy.
