Product Description

Have you bought into the lie that you're worthy of God's love only when your life is going well? If so, when life begins to fall apart and embarrassing sins threaten to reveal your less-than-perfect identity, the inclination is to scramble to keep up a good front, to cower and hide until the mask of perfection can be slipped back into place.

All this time, though, God is calling you to take your mask off and come openly to Him. God longs for you to know in the depths of your being that He loves you and accepts you as you are. In Abba's Child, you'll be encouraged to let go of the impostor lifestyle and freely accept your belovedness as a child of God your Father. In Him there is life, passion is rekindled, and your union with Him is His greatest pleasure.

This revised and expanded edition includes a new preface and a discussion guide written by Manning himself.

Publisher's Description

Many Christians feel broken and angry but don’t think they can express these real feelings around others—or to God. So we put on a mask to hide our identity. Feelings of embarrassment and shame make us hide from the One who truly loves us. Author Brennan Manning encourages you to let go of this stressful, unreal impostor lifestyle and freely accept your identity as a child of God. Find the rest that you long for as you grow in character and accept His lordship. Includes discussion questions.

    Brennan Manning understands what it means to be in a REAL relationship with God our father, or "Abba", through Jesus Christ. I wish that he had attended my church, or was my next door neighbor, so that I could have learned from him about this wonderful acceptance from God when I was younger.

    I don't reread many books. But this is a keeper! For anyone who struggle with accepting God's love and others love. Or just needs a reminder!

    To the heart of the matter. This book speaks directly to you as it does for me. I've just started reading it. Enjoy doesn't seem to be the right word. Confronting? Yes. But that's good. Our true selves need to be illuminated. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Too much of the author's own personal stories as a father or monk. I wanted more about God's love toward sinners.

    This is not a book that one can hurry through. It is not an *easy read*. It is thought provoking;slow, comtemplative. One cannot come away from reading without an appreciation of this incredible relationship that we have - as Abba's child!
