Publishers Description

Imagine a stormy day at sea, your ship yielding to a relentless wind, pummeled by crashing waves, subject to the awesome force of nature. A force that is both fierce and majestic. A power that is nothing short of furious.

Such is God's intense, consuming love for His children. It's a love that knows no limits, and no boundaries. A love that will go to any lengths, and take any risks, to pursue us.

Renowned author and ragamuffin Brennan Manning presents a love story for the brokenhearted. For those who are burdened by heavy religion. For those who feel they can never measure up. It is a provocative and poignant look at the radical, no-holds-barred love of our Heavenly Father. It is a message that will forever change how you view God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Book Almost Looked Brand New  May 28, 2010
I received the book within a week after ordering it. The book was in excellent condition.
 
Remarkable  May 25, 2010


When I first read this book, I thought, "This is a just a rehash of the material in Manning's other books." Several months later I picked it up again and was stunned (smacked in the face) by the voice of God speaking to me through its words.

This book is important and powerful, written by a gentle man who has been stunned by the love of God and lives to share the power and intimacy of God's love with the world. This book is truly remarkable.
 
Furiously loved!  May 7, 2010
Brennan Manning never fails to move me deeply to the core with his writing. The grace, love, and mercy of God become clearer and more experiential in this book. The questions at the end of each chapter help you meditate, process, and apply what you have just read. Brennan is uniquely gifted to impart an understanding of grace that makes the eighteen inch drop from your head to your heart. I am thankful to have read The Furious Longing of God. You will not be disappointed!
 
Good Primer for First-Time Manning Readers  Mar 22, 2010
Brennan Manning's The Furious Longing of God does an excellent job of bringing to light the fact that God wants to be with us. Depending on where you are spiritually, this book can be just what you need. Coming from a very intellectual perspective myself religiously, I enjoy how Manning writes to the heart. His prose forges a vein that lifts my spirit and explains God's love to me in a way that I can feel and know of its depth. Too many only KNOW of God's love. I'm not sure they actually experience it. A recovering alcoholic, Manning has done just that and thus is able to explain it in a passionate way; in a way that only a truly forgiven person can.

Manning spoke to me on several occasions. "We may scrupulously observe the Ten Commandments and rarely miss church on a Sunday morning, but a love affair with Jesus is just not our cup of tea." This explains so many in the religious world today, including myself at one time . . . I hope. I want to know Jesus intellectually but I also want to know him in a deeper fashion. In a way that is personal. "For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, `Abba! Father!'" (Romans 8:15) Abba is a very personal noun for God that we can all use and should be comfortable in using. God wants us to.

Manning's larger purpose is to show that we are not worthy of Christ but that He wants us and therefore we can throw off the burdens of guilt and pious suppression that we forge for ourselves. We don't have to be perfect and we don't have to be someone we're not. Obedience is key however and through that obedience we can come to know the Christ of the Gospels in a way that we never thought possible. Manning says, "Too many of us have received knowledge without appreciation and facts without enthusiasm." I don't want this. I want to be excited about God's love not just because I know about it but because I've experienced it.

Manning also doesn't put you in a cycle of good today and going to Hell tomorrow which is what turns many off when it comes to Christianity. Instead, he helps you see that God loves you at all times thus making it humanly possible, worthwhile, and utterly engaging to be a Christian.
 
I read a couple pages every morning  Feb 28, 2010
This book by Brennan Manning is so refreshing. For Christians who need to be reminded of God's deep love for us, or for everyone else who needs to understand the kind of love God has for each person, it serves both purposes well. It presents the self as someone who tries to make things work in their life, but doesn't quite measure up even in their own eyes. We all need love in the deepest way. We need to be loved to love, and we are- by God Himself. How genuinely can we love others if we are totally consumed by the Love of the creator God!
