Brennan Manning believes that all changes in our quality of life must grow out of changes in our vision of reality. He argues that by relating to God as a loving parent with a heart of tenderness, we can begin to develop a spiritual life that allows us to let go of worry, stop organizing everything as means to an end, and begin to live fully in the awareness of God's infinite grace and mercy in each moment. Manning calls into question the prevailing vision of God as a remote overlord who alternately purveys judgment and blessings to his creatures below. He shows how this distorted image of God leads to a spirituality that is shallow and how it is ultimately in conflict with the message of the Gospel. A profound exploration of the challenges of Christian living, this book will lead readers toward a greater experience of compassion, forgiveness, reconciliation, and reverence.
