Brennan Manning on a Relationship with Jesus

Photo Credit: L Lemos
From Brennan Manning's book, Ruthless Trust: The Ragamuffin's Path to God:
"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."
