Loving the lovely…sacrificing for the worthy…admiring the noble…
These are all common themes of literature and culture. After all, it only makes sense that these qualities should be admired–in fact, beg to be admired.
But into history, into literature, into culture marched an upside-down idea.
Loving the unlovely…sacrificing for the worthless…delighting in the broken…lifting up the ragamuffin…
This story is beautifully captured in Brennan Manning’s timeless book The Ragamuffin Gospel. In Manning’s writing, the wonder of the story becomes fresh and breathes life into weary hearts.
I recommend this book to every ragamuffin in need of lifting up, in need of grace.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
