Summary

With Patched Together, Brennan Manning reminds us that the freedom and joy of acceptance is rooted in the forgiving love of God.

From the beloved author of The Ragamuffin Gospel comes a tender story for anyone who has ever said: "life didn't quite turn out the way I thought it would, but..."

In this warm and charming three-part story, Willie Juan moves from orphaned boy to prodigal adult to ragamuffin friend of Abba. As with any parable, there is one overarching truth: the unconditional love of God. Patched Together is a charming retelling of the Gospel story of forgiveness, acceptance, and joy in God's friendship.

Breathtaking ...

It's difficult to know how to express in words what Manning's works stir in my soul. He has been a kindred spirit to me for over 20 years, and this work is a happy addition to the long line of writings from him that I hold dear to my heart.
Patched Together is the kind of work I would venture to say every person in this big, diverse world of ours would identify with in some way or another. I've made a challenge to all my friends: download the book, go away somewhere (preferably a natural, aesthetically pleasing place), turn off your cell phones and any other electronic device that would hinder or distract (save your iPOD, obviously), close your eyes, and drift into the world of Willy Juan for 2 hours and 13 minutes. I am willing to bet that anyone who picks up that challenge will be moved in the depths of the soul somehow. I loved the book; I loved the narration. Excellent piece of work that will most likely be a permanent fixture on my iPOD so that I can enjoy it anytime of the day or night. Simply Breathtaking!

Patched Together

This is a vivid allegory of the Christian story of love at the very foundation of mankind.

It is simple, transformative, powerful and connects with the human heart in an unimaginable way, almost inexplicable!

Outstanding book and utterly relevant!
