It is with surprise that I woke today to hear that Brennan Manning has died.
It was only a few years ago in which I was introduced to his writing’s on God’s grace, and he explained it in a way that I have never forgotten. While I have heard knowledgeable men teach Grace from their understanding of Grace, Brennan preached God’s grace through experience. He was a man who desperately needed (just like all of us) the grace of God, and he had a deep sense of the grace and love of our God. He proclaimed God’s grace wherever he had the chance. R.I.P. ragamuffin brother. Sad to hear that you’ve left us now, but glad that you’re in the arms of Jesus now.
