Favorite quotes from “The Relentless Tenderness of Jesus,” by Brennan Manning

Relentless Tenderness--Manning coverHere are some of my favorite quotes from Brennan Manning’s  book, The Relentless Tenderness of Jesus, a book I treasure  (Buy link):

(Important note: It is easy for quotes, free of context, to be misunderstood or misconstrued. You are invited  to explore the complete text to gain full context. Also, I will keep adding quotes as I continue reading, so  bookmark this link and check back regularly.)

1) “‘Concepts create idols,’ wrote Gregory of Nyssa, ‘Only wonder understands anything.'” (p. 12)

2) “‘Some things are understood not by grasping, but by allowing oneself to be grasped.'” (p. 12)

3) “There is a chronic temptation to reduce God to human dimensions, to express Him in manageable ideas.  Human reason seeks to understand, to reduce everything to its own terms. But God is God. He is more than a  superhuman being with an intellect keener than ours and a capacity for loving greater than ours. He is  Unique, Uncreated, Infinite, Totally Other than we are. He surpasses and transcends all human concepts,  considerations and expectations. He is beyond anything we can intellectualize or imagine. That is why God is  a scandal to men and women—because He cannot be comprehended by a finite mind.” (p. 18)

4) “God is God….God is a scandal to men and women because He cannot be comprehended by a finite mind.”  (p. 18)

5) “Expectations are our subtle attempts to control God and manipulate mystery.” (p. 19)

6) “The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the love story of God with us. It begins with unconditional forgiveness: the sole condition is trusting faith.” (p. 22)

7) “Remember Atlas who carries the whole world? We have Christian Atlases who mistakenly carry the burden of trying to deserve God’s love….I’d like to say to Atlas: ‘Put that globe down and dance on it. That’s why God made it.’ And to these weary Christian Atlases: ‘Lay down your load and build your life on God’s love.’ We don’t have to earn this love, neither do we have to support it. It is a free gift.” (pp. 22-23)

8) “Why struggle to do good if God loves so recklessly and foolishly?….Those who truly know the God of Jesus are not likely to ask why they should be laboring for the kingdom while others stand around all day idle. They want life and have found the fullness of life in God Himself…” (p. 23)

9) “The Lord does not cherish us as we deserve—if that were the case, we would be desolate—but as He must. He cannot do otherwise. He is love. Hard as it is for us to believe—because we neither give nor receive love among ourselves in this way—we yet believe, because of the life-death-resurrection of the Carpenter-Messiah, that His Father is more loving, more forgiving, more cherishing than Abraham, Isaac or Jacob could have dreamed.” (pp. 24-25)

6-1-14 FINAL cover Celender

What Doctors Could Not Do…God Did

A beautiful young girl’s nightmare illness.

A faith-filled mother’s broken heart.

A loving, miracle-working God.

When her young daughter is diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor that even one world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon would not risk trying to remove, Cheryl Ann knew only to throw herself at the feet of Jesus and cry out to God in prayers of faith, pleading for her life. Though they would endure excruciating tests and terrifying trials, be perplexed by a cynical and indifferent medical system, and battle in faith when faced with countless negative reports and dire diagnoses, Cheryl Ann and her daughter stood strong on their faith in God and belief that He would move in miraculous power.

Then, one day . . . God moved in mighty power . . . and is still moving to this day.

Will You Go to Heaven When You Die? New Book Helps You Know for Sure

A.M.L. Publishing and ChristianWriterHelp.com are pleased to announce the worldwide release of the FINAL SMALL front cover--Lewis   insightful and compelling book, Making It to Heaven: How to Be Certain You’ll Spend Eternity with God,  by pastor and author John R. Lewis. Available in paperback on the author’s website, Making It to Heaven  (http://makingittoheaven.wordpress.com/the-book/), Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and bookstores worldwide  through Ingram and Ingram’s Spring Arbor Distributors. Making It to Heaven is also available as an e-book  exclusively through Amazon’s Kindle store.

If you died today, are you 100 percent certain you would go to heaven? You can be. God loves you and desires  to spend eternity with you in heaven, so He wants you to have no doubt about whether or not you will go  there. He has even made a pathway that leads to this eternal life, and provided you with everything you need  to find and follow it.

In Making It to Heaven: How to Be Certain You’ll Spend Eternity with God, pastor, author, and speaker  John R. Lewis explores and expounds upon questions and answers about eternal destiny, heaven, salvation,  God, Jesus, and more. Written in an engaging and accessible style, Making It to Heaven addresses the most  important questions in this life.

“I wrote this book because I was concerned about where people will spend eternity,” says Lewis. “Most people in the world today don’t have the certainty of going to heaven. Jesus gave me a command to go and preach the gospel to all creation, and this book is part of me fulfilling that.”

Missing Malaysian Airliner Mirrors Plot of New Book by JK Battaglia, A Slice of Life

A Slice of Life front cover

Event Horizon Productions is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the gut-wrenching but heartwarming tale of survival, A Slice of Life: A Great Tribulation Chronicle, by author JK Battaglia, in both paperback and e-book. (Amazon paperback http://www.amazon.com/Slice-Life-Great-Tribulation-Chronicle/dp/194024319X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397748195&sr=8-1&keywords=JK+Battaglia and; Kindle http://www.amazon.com/Slice-Life-Tribulation-Chronicle-ebook/dp/B00CY4WRI8/, Nook http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-slice-of-life-jk-battaglia/1116156135?ean=2940148628422, and iBookstore https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/a-slice-of-life/id654004200?mt=11&uo=4.)

In A Slice of Life: A Great Tribulation Chronicle, JK Battaglia, author of ‘Twas the Tragedy Before Christmas and the Bible Teasers Series, delivers to his audience his most ambitious and captivating work yet. Featuring a plot that eerily mirrors the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 on March 8, 2014, A Slice of Life is an enthralling tale of survival during the End Times in which the main character must live each day by the edge of a blade, the edge of his nerves, and the edge of his moral and religious conscience.

“In light of Hollywood’s resurrected interest in biblical stories, and the success of History channel’s series, The Bible, and the spinoff feature film, Son of God, now is the perfect time for audiences to experience and be immersed in the story of a man who tries to keep on living during the apocalyptic End Times, despite all the odds against him,” says Battaglia. “I was inspired to write this book by a dream of being left behind during the Rapture (when God will take believers from the earth before the widespread death and destruction of the Great Tribulation). I felt particular urgency to write this work because we can see the pieces of the picture of the End Times, as revealed in the book of Revelation and book of Daniel, falling into place before our very eyes.”

This book will prepare reader’s hearts and minds to be ready for that apocalyptic future by avoiding it through a wholehearted belief in God and salvation through Him.
