Brennan Manning Books

Brennan Manning

Author, speaker, and contemplative Richard Francis Xavier Manning, better known to his readers as Brennan Manning, completed his earthly journey on Friday, April 12, 2013.

Brennan studied at St. John's University, the University of Missouri, Columbia University, and Saint Francis Catholic Seminary, to be ordained a Franciscan priest in 1963. He later taught theology at the University of Stuebenville in Ohio, and served as spiritual director of St. Francis Seminary in Pennsylvania. Then, veering off the seemingly charted course of his life, he fell into the mire of alcoholism. After six months of treatment, he was on the road to recovery.

Out of his personal pain and turmoil came a powerful ministry that testifies to God's boundless grace and mercy. When he wasn't speaking at Christian colleges across the country or directing spiritual retreats, Brennan was working with the poor, and writing. Of his works, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Embracing the Unconditional Love of God is perhaps the most highly regarded. All Is Grace: A Ragamuffin Memoir was his last published work. Join us in celebrating the memory of this highly revered disciple, as we can continue to learn from his teachings.

Through poignant and unforgettable stories and challenging observations, Manning helps you stretch your mind and reject simplistic explanations of who God really is. With rich insights you'll see how God can at once be a roaring lion, pacing the globe and seeking you out; and simultaneously a tender lamb, there to comfort you in any time of need.

    A unique experience, this book will forever change the way you think about God.
