Do you believe that God not only loves you, but that he also likes you?
It's just one of the soul-searching questions posed by bestselling author Brennan Manning who confesses he has been 'John the beloved, Peter the coward, and Thomas the doubter all before the waitress brought the check.'
The NIV Ragamuffin Bible offers a collection of Manning’s raw, painfully honest, yet grace-filled devotions, meditations, and reflections of his journey limping back to---like the prodigal son---his overjoyed father. When you journey through this Bible, you will likewise find yourself returning to your Heavenly Father, basking in the knowledge that God not only loves you, he delights in you.
Features:* Complete text of the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the NIV* 104 Devotions guide you into a deeper connection to God and his Word * 250 Reflections help you understand what it means to be a child of God* 150 Quotes offer short but thoughtful insights into God’s kingdom.

This Bible contains the trusted by many NIV version of God's Word along with devotional thoughts and quotes from Brennan Manning (1934-2013). There is nothing fancy about this Bible - the printing is all in black with the thoughts from Manning set apart from the Biblical text in blocks that look like parchment pieces. While there is nothing pretentious in the presentation of this Bible, the Word of God with the addition of Manning's timeless transparency in devotional encouragement will be a priceless treasure to those "bedraggled, bear-up and brokenhearted" sojourners who may come across it. I'm holding on to my review copy and waiting to pass it along to someone in 2014 who needs to encounter the God of the Bible and the amazing grace He offers in abundance.
Get yours today and be ready to abide in God's Word in 2014!
