The beloved and bestselling spiritual writer presents a portrait of Jesus as the antidote to self-hatred, 'the most persistent and prevalent spiritual problem of our age'. Following his work on the unconditional love of God, bestselling Christian writer, Brennan Manning, now turns to the life and work of Jesus to find an answer to the most pressing spiritual problem of our age: self-hatred.
Manning shows how this problem is rooted in 'a script' founded in a faulty understanding of the nature of divine love and a lack of clear understanding of the person and message of Jesus. He helps us to rewrite this script of self-hatred by gaining a clearer glimpse of the nature of Jesus: his healing work, stories of deliverance, liberating prayer, integrity of self-acceptance, and all-encompassing compassion.
This book offers a thoughtful, grace-filled voice of true spirituality and maturity with a timely message.
