:Choice personal reflections and prayers from a beloved spiritual master
Author of The Ragamuffin Gospel and other best-selling inspirational books, Brennan Manning in Dear Abba shares his wisdom in a powerful new way.
Completed shortly before Manning’s recent death, this book lays out a month of honest prayers to God &- whom Manning affectionately calls "Abba" &- in a devotional format designed to guide and inspire the reader’s own prayers. The morning and evening entries each present a Scripture passage, a select excerpt from Manning's contemporary spiritual classics, and a concluding "Dear Abba" prayer.
These morning and evening devotions contain poignant cries for help, expressions of wide-eyed wonder, and invitations into the comforting mercy of God. As Manning writes in his preface, "My prayer is that these words will push you closer to that place of quiet rest, near to the heart of Abba, just the two of you."
