ragamuffin Bible


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. Features:* 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


This Bible I am reviewing is the Ragamuffin Bible, NIV Version. It is a study Bible with the quotes and anecdotes are those of the late Brennan Manning. In this Bible you will find an introduction by Brennan Manning, the “original ragamuffin,” the complete text of the New International Version of the Holy Bible. There are 104 devotions that guide the reader into a deeper connection to God and His word as well as 250 reflections that help the reader understand what it means to be a child of God. Throughout this Bible there are quotes that offer the reader thoughtful insights into God’s kingdom and note pages at the end of each book in the Bible for you to record your own notes.

I enjoy reviewing Bibles and getting an insight into each new study Bible, and the person or persons that write quotes, anecdotes and the different things included to aid in Bible study. I didn’t know a lot about Brennan Manning, so I enjoyed the insight into this well known author of the contemporary classic, The Ragamuffin Gospel. If you enjoy study Bibles, or just enjoy collecting Bible to use for study,  this is one you will enjoy.

I received this Bible from the publisher, Zondervan B&B Media Group to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55 to
