Book Description



The Signature of Jesus challenges the gospel of cheap grace and calls the church to radical discipleship. With passion and boldness, author Brennan Manning invites readers to risk living life as Jesus lived--committed to simplicity, purity of heart, and obedience to the gospel.

As a radical alternative this book is offered to Christians who want to live by faith and not by mere religion, for those who recognize that many of the burning theological issues in the church today are neither burning nor theological; who see Christianity neither as a moral code or a belief system but as a love affair; who have not forgotten that they are followers of a crucified Christ; who know that following him means living dangerously; who want to live the gospel without compromise; who have no greater desire than to have his signature written on the pages of their lives.

Behold, Jesus proclaims, I stand at the door and knock. You may have already met him at the door...but do you truly know him? Have you been transformed by His furious, passionate, unexplainable love? Join Brennan Manning, the bestselling author of The Ragamuffin Gospel, on a personal journey to experience Christs love and live with His passion.

    This was a very thought-provoking book on not so much Christian living as Christian being. The big question is, "is my life marked with the signature of Jesus?". It's not about living in such as way as to try to gain the "approval" of Jesus, but living in such as way as we would if we really understood that we already DO have His approval. So many churches and Christian leaders and pastors try to teach us to be better Christians; be more like Christ. And so often, that is supposed to be done by "doing" or "not doing" certain things.

    In The Signature of Jesus, Brennan Manning conveys, based on his and others' life experiences, personal prayers and meditations, quotes, stories, studies, and even his own failures that if we truly understand the profound, sacrifical and unconditional love that Jesus has for us, that our life cannot help but be a reflection of that love. This idea really brings to light the verse that says, "and the truth shall set you free", because it does offer a release from the church and self-imposed striving that we often do to gain something that, in the end, we already have, when we believe in faith that Jesus is who He says He is.

    I found myself doing a lot of highlighting of passages. I think this book would be a great group study as I found there were many times it would have been nice to discuss with others what I was reading.

    Very good insight into discipleship. I had started to read The Ragamuffin Gospel at one point but had trouble getting into it. This book however was more challenging as far as life and thought patterns go, so that was an enticement to dig in. His insights are golden and he is incredibly articulate. He tells some great stories and really models what living out that discipleship looks like. Definitely a good read for people that are looking to go deeper with the Lord. I think that Manning himself is even better in speaking, so as an aside, I would suggest that even more!
