The Ragamuffin Bible


Nothing beats giving a new Bible at Christmas (well, except receiving one, that is). And when that Bible is laced with inspirational thoughts by Brennan Manning, then you know it’s a winner.

The NIV Ragamuffin Bible, Meditations for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Brokenhearted (published by Zondervan) is such a Bible.

The Ragamuffin Bible contains the complete NIV text—the most popular modern-English translation—and myriad candid meditations from Manning’s own reflective journey in a quest to better know the God who not only loves him but also likes him. Manning fostered the idea that God actually likes His children. His devotionals not only expound that idea, but also divulge Manning’s own soul-searching trek and share the riches of God’s grace he finds along the way.


As well as the entire NIV Bible text, The Ragamuffin Bible also features the following:

104 Devotions, 250 Reflections, 150 Quotes.

The Ragamuffin Bible makes a great gift for fans of Brennan Manning. Would also be a fit for those who appreciate more philosophical Christian writers such as C.S. Lewis. Not a fit for those looking for light devotionals. Manning was a thinker – and his writing displays profundity.
