Why I love one paragraph: author

This week is going to be "Why I love one paragraph week" at Ragamuffin Ramblings. Each day I will use one paragraph to define why certain people and things are my favorites. I would love to get your paragraphs for your favorites as well. I'm gonna kick off the week with my favorite author: Brennan Manning.

No other author has done for me what Brennan has been able to do; take God's grace, mercy, and ludicrous love out of my theology classes and books, and tenderly shoved them into my heart. I grew up in the Christian Church. I knew correct answers and regulations, but I had never been ambushed by the furious love of God until I first read The Ragamuffin Gospel my sophomore year of college. I have soaked up Brennan's writing ever since.

Favorite Books by Brennan: The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba's Child, Wisdom of Tenderness, The Importance of Being Foolish, The Boy Who Cried Abba, Ruthless Trust


In ONE PARAGRAPH, why do you love your favorite author?
