Welcome to JoJo’s Corner.
Today, I’m sharing a Bible with you that I recently reviewed:
Brennan Manning spent his life and ministry helping others experience the unconditional love of Jesus Christ. A recovering alcoholic and former Franciscan priest, his own spiritual journey took him down a variety of paths, all of them leading to the profound reality of God’s irresistible grace. His ministry responsibilities varied greatly – from teacher, to minister to the poor, to solidary reflective. As a writer, Brennan Manning is best known as the author of the contemporary classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba’s Child, Ruthless Trust, The Importance of Being Foolish, Patched Together, and The Furious Longing of God.

Do you believe that God not only loves you, but that he also likes you? It’s just one of the soul-searching questions posed by bestselling author Brennan Manning who confesses he has been ‘John the beloved, Peter the coward, and Thomas the doubter all before the waitress brought the check.’ The NIV Ragamuffin Bible offers a collection of Manning’s raw, painfully honest, yet grace-filled devotions, meditations, and reflections of his journey limping back to—like the prodigal son—his overjoyed father. When you journey through this Bible, you will likewise find yourself returning to your Heavenly Father, basking in the knowledge that God not only loves you, he delights in you.
Complete text of the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the NIV
104 Devotions guide you into a deeper connection to God and his Word
250 Reflections help you understand what it means to be a child of God
150 Quotes offer short but thoughtful insights into God’s kingdom
I love that Zondervan has paired up Brennan Manning and this Bible.
I recently discovered some of Manning’s Ragamuffin works and am a big fan!
What I love about this Bible are the great insights and quotes and devotionals throughout.
I like the size of the Bible and even though it is a hardback, it’s very compact and light and easy to carry.
The font is great! I’m typically drawn to a larger print, but this has a clean clear font that is easy to see.
Another thing you need to know about this Bible is that the devotionals, quotes, etc are not listed in a category or Table of Contents in the Bible- for some readers that may be a drawback, but I enjoyed letting myself be surprised at what was next.
