    Willie Juan is a young Mexican boy with a crippled leg and scars from an accident. The other children are cruel, making fun of him and embarrassing him even as he tries to believe they will be his friend. He has a wonderful, Godly grandmother who tries to impress him always with her love and the love of God.

    One festival day Willie meets the Medicine Man who is the first stranger to ever befriend him. The man gives him a vial of medicine to use to help deal with his lameness and scars. It implies that there will be help, but doesnt say the medicine will cure him. Willie Juans grandmother encourages him to go to a local cave that is considered a place for a vision or dream quest. Willie Juan has an encounter with the Man of Sorrows God and it changes his life.

    The story is broken into three sections: Morning, Noon and Night. The author follows Willie Juans revelations, growth, success, downfall and finally surrender. Willie Juans experience is an allegory for everymans experience of longing, rebellion and redemption. The story is touching and moving and provided me with a central point for my devotion for the Ladies Book Club: do we recognize and accept that we are a beloved of God?

    This was a quick, inspiring read with wonderful faith messages. All of the ladies in book club loved the story and recommend it to anyone who is seeking God or seeking to find peace and acceptance in who they are to God.

    As I read this I realized it is my story too. I could relate to the times Willie lost his way and found it again, and again, and again.

    This is the first book written by Brennan Manning that I have ever read. I had heard of the Ragamuffin Gospel but had never even seen the book much less read it. After reading this book, I will get more Brennan Manning books to read. I love the simple writing style and the wonderful story within the short pages of this book. I intend to buy some copies to give away.
