by Brennan Manning
Many Christians feel broken and angry but don't think they can express these real feelings around others - or to God. So we put on a mask to hide our identity. Feelings of embarrassment and shame make us hide from the one who truly loves us. Author Brennan Manning encourages you to let go of this stressful, unreal impostor lifestyle and freely accept your identity as a child of God. Find the rest that you long for as you grow in character and accept His lordship.
The liberating message of this book, which includes discussion questions, is that God longs for us to know in the depths of our being that he loves and accepts us as we are. God is our "Abba," our loving father, who knows us far better than we know ourselves. The shocking revelation of Abba's Child is two-fold: that sin has a greater grip than we realize on our hearts, and that God loves us far more than we can imagine.
