>> By the late Brennan Manning

NIV BibleMany come to God feeling like ragamuffins – unworthy and unlovable. Zondervan’s new NIV Ragamuffin Bible: Meditations for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up and Brokenhearted (November 2013) is a reminder to the ragamuffin in everyone that they are still God’s beloved, no matter what they’ve done. Everyone needs grace, for ourselves and even the person who sits next to us at work, at church or on the bus. Excerpts from the life’s work of the late Brennan Manning, who passed away in April 2013, are the heart and soul of the Ragamuffin Bible. Zondervan’s immediate plans include partnering with ministry organizations and marketplace leaders in key cities to get samples of the Bible (the books of Psalms and Matthew available for free download on www.ragamuffinbible.com ) into the hands of the undervalued and the overlooked in homeless shelters, halfway houses and health clinics, etc. The e-version of the full bible is available for only $4.99 during December.

“Manning has inspired artists, poets, musicians and the ragamuffin body of Christ for decades. We are thrilled to share his wisdom and influence on the pages of this new devotional Bible,” says Chip Brown, Senior VP of Zondervan. “On the subject of grace, Manning has no equal. His words can be unsettling at times, but they are always penetrating and deserve to be quoted again and again. That’s exactly what the Ragamuffin Bible does.”

Perhaps no one welcomes the message of grace more than the marginalized of society. Yet we each desperately need it. Many accept the gift of God’s unconditional love and grace, in theory, but can’t seem to apply it in their daily lives. They beat themselves up over their own failures and pull away from God because they subconsciously believe he tallies their defects and hangs his head in disappointment. Pairing the text of the most popular English Bible translation in the world with the writings of one of the most respected authors and scholars of the last century, 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 – like the prodigal son – to his overjoyed father.
