The Furious Longing of God by Brennan Manning

Brennan Manning
Hardcover: 144 pages
Publisher: David C. Cook; (March 1, 2009)
5/5 stars

Manning's writing style in the Furious Longing of God is very personal--sometimes it feels too personal, as though he were a very intimate friend talking straight to me. This fabulous little book is not centered around any one denomination, only around the love of God, for us little ragamuffins. It is a profound book, a moving book, a much needed book for those of us buffeted by doubt and in need of trust.

This is not be Manning's most polished book, and at times it seemed a little bit choppy. However, he still brought all of it together so that the ending pointed back to his beginning so beautifully.

I highly recommend this, or any Manning book, to Christians not bound by religion and looking for a true relationship with a loving God.
