Brennan Manning – Abba of Jesus

Fabio’s been reading books by Brennan Manning and reading a bit about his life. He was a recovering alcoholic, soldier, journalist, priest, married, divorced (not necessarily in that order) who wrote about radical grace. Here’s a quote I came across of his today:
“I want neither a terrorist spirituality that keeps me in a perpetual state of fright about being in right relationship with my heavenly Father nor a sappy spirituality that portrays God as such a benign teddy bear that there is no aberrant behavior or desire of mine that he will not condone. I want a relationship with the Abba of Jesus, who is infinitely compassionate with my brokenness and at the same time an awesome, incomprehensible, and unwieldy Mystery.”
