The Rabbi's Heartbeat

The Rabbi's Heartbeat, by Brennan Manning

This book has been a source of encouragement and comfort to me for the last two months. As I've had to make some decisions for my dad, my role as a daughter has changed; this has been stressful, to say the least. The Rabbi's Heartbeat continually reminded me that God is my Father and I am His beloved child. This familiar truth has been a beam of light on dark days.

Brennan Manning has a simple honest style that is welcome during a stressful time. Filled with Biblical truths, it is far from shallow, yet it was very accessible when I was feeling burdened and discouraged.
