really liked it
bookshelves: spirituality
Read from September 23 to 25, 2010

Brennan Manning has a beautiful way with words. Some of the things he said and the way he said them just blew me away. It kind of tapered off a bit toward the end, but it was still a really, really good book. I may even give it a few months and then reread it.

Quotes Hannah Liked

Brennan Manning
“I've decided that if I had my life to live over again, I would not only climb more mountains, swim more rivers, and watch more sunsets; I wouldn't only jettison my hot water bottle, raincoat, umbrella, parachute, and raft; I would not only go barefoot earlier in the spring and stay out later in the fall; but I would devote not one more minute to monitoring my spiritual growth. No, not one.”
Brennan Manning, The Furious Longing of God
