What Happens When God's Fierce Mercy Transforms Our Lives.

Bestselling Christian writer Brennan Manning turns to the tenderness of God as the model for spiritual growth.

Brennan Manning writes that all changes in the quality of a person's life must grow out of a change in that person's vision of reality. He argues that by relating to God as the heart of tenderness, we can begin to develop a spiritual life that lets go of worry, stops organising everything as means to an end, and begins to live fully in the awareness of God's infinite grace and mercy in each moment. By accepting the tenderness of God, our hearts will begin to open, our minds can discern truth, and we can more readily see the divine in others.

Manning calls into question the prevailing vision of God as a remote overlord who alternately purveys judgment and blessings to his creatures below. He shows how this distorted image of God leads to a spirituality that is shallow and how it is ultimately in conflict with the message of the Gospel.
