Product Description Beloved Christian writer Brennan Manning has long been illuminating the transforming power of God's constant love for us in his bestselling books. Now he identifies self–hatred as the reason that so many of us seem unable to accept this incredible, unchanging love. By clearly examining and understanding Jesus' life, we can put self–hatred behind us forever and truly be transformed in the ways God intended. Review “What a wonderful antidote to all the evil done in the name of Jesus.” (Philip Gulley, author of Christmas in Harmony) “...Scorchingly prophetic, breathtakingly transparent, and extravagantly tender. I’m glad I got to learn from him.” (John Ortberg, author of Everybody's Normal Til You Get To Know Them) “The single chapter on ‘Healing Through Meal Sharing’ was worth the price of the book.” (Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and author of Courageous Leadership) “[C]ompelling . . . .Manning’s book offers a radical portrait of discipleship for the modern church.” ( Publishers Weekly (starred review)) “Manning effectively leads readers on a journey of understanding and overcoming self-hatred.” (CCM Magazinen (Editor's Pick)) “Manning does a good job of pointing Christians in the right direction by giving a glimpse of Jesus’ love.” ( Booklist) “The author’s obvious integrity, honesty and sincerity are as convincing as his arguments.” (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) From the Back Cover 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 re-write 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 little book pretends to be no more than the title claims: a glimpse of Jesus. That is all I have. It is written for myself and anyone else who has been tyrannized by self-hatred. I envision a wide reading audience because self-hatred is the most persistent and prevalent spiritual problem I have encountered in my many years as a vagabond evangelist.” --Brennan Manning, from the foreword. About the Author Brennan Manning is the bestselling author of many books, including The Ragamuffin Gospel and Ruthless Trust. He leads spiritual retreats in the United States and Europe for people of all ages and backgrounds.
