It has been over twenty years since the publication of The Ragamuffin Gospel, a book many claim as the shattering of God's grace into their lives. Brennan Manning, who left us this week, was dazzingly faithful in preaching and writing on the singular theme: "Yes, Abba is very fond of you!" The crowds are gone now, and the lights are dim, the patches on his knees have faded. If he ever was a ragamuffin in God's gracious presence, truly it is now.
