Bestselling author Brennan Manning has long spoken out about the transforming power of God's constant love. Now he identifies self-hatred as the reason that so many seem unable to accept this incredible, unchanging gift. By clearly examining and understanding Jesus's life, he argues, we can put our self-hatred behind us forever and truly be transformed in the ways that God intended.
In A Glimpse of Jesus, Manning shows us how self-hatred is based on a faulty understanding of the nature of divine love, and a lack of clear understanding of the person and message of Jesus. He helps us to re-write this script of self-hatred by gaining a clearer glimpse of the nature of Jesus: his healing work, stories of deliverance, liberating prayer, integrity of self-acceptance, and all-encompassing compassion.
Brennan Manning, a former Franciscan monk, is the author of eleven books, including the bestselling The Ragamuffin Gospel. He leads spiritual retreats in the United States and Europe for people of all ages and backgrounds.
"Brennan Manning speaks in this book with a unique voice in the Christian Community. He is scorchingly prophetic, breathtakingly transparent, and extravagantly tender. I'm glad I got to learn from him."
