But before the fame of his ragamuffin gospel, Brennan Manning was a son, brother, soldier, journalist, priest, husband, father, and friend. This is that part of the story, a necessary piece of the larger puzzle of grace. These pages tell the story of a man whose name was not always Brennan.
Brennan Manning spent forty years helping others experience the reality of God’s love and grace. It was at the heart of everything he wrote and did. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, his spiritual journey took him down a variety of paths. He taught seminarians, spoke to packed arenas, lived in a cave and labored with the poor in Spain, and ministered to shrimpers in Alabama. Brennan is best-known as the author of the contemporary classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba’s Child, Ruthless Trust, and The Importance of Being Foolish. He went home to be with the Lord in 2013.
