Rev-this was one man's opinion about what nonviolence is. you are welcome to disagree. I like it, but you don't have to like it or agree with it. Split hairs if you want. No big deal. We're all friends here.
Lydia-I love Brennan Manning. I think you would like his other books, Ragamuffin Gospel
, The Signature of Jesus
, The Wisdom of Tenderness
, to name a few. Ragamuffin Gospel
is my favorite.
Ragamuffin Gospel revolutionized the way I look at the Christian life. I was raised Southern Baptist and it made me look a lot at how I was raised and how it really limited how I see God. I have sinced learned that God is too big to be put in the tiny little boxes we humans tend to place Him in. The book was fabulous.
