Imagine a stormy day at sea: your ship yielding to a relentless wind, pummeled by crashing waves, subject to the awesome force of nature. A force that is both fierce and majestic. A power that is nothing short of furious. Such is God's intense love for His children.

The Furious Longing of God is the latest tour de force from beloved author and ragamuffin, Brennan Manning. Hold on tight as you discover the most powerful force in the universe: God's furious longing for you. There is nowhere God won't go to find us. No country too distant. No terrain too treacherous. No risk too great. It is a Father's search for His lost son, His lost daughter. And there are no boundaries to where His love will take Him in order to find us, embrace us, and carry us home!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/3/2014

    " Absolutely beautiful and resonating. I'll read and read again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JR | 12/26/2013

    " Great stories of discovering God's love. However every Manning book I read sounds to border on universalism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amberlee Bixler | 12/21/2013

    " This is the first book by Brennan Manning I've read, and he is such a simply beautiful gift. The book is not long, it is not filled with haunting, romantic language; it is simply, staggeringly, hauntingly true. The theme, found in the title, resonates that God's love for each of us rages in its ferocity like a storm at sea, and we have the option of hiding in what is known and familiar, or thrusting ourselves fully into the raging, cleansing, extravagant love of God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Austen | 12/15/2013

    " Another amazing (although much shorter) work by the awesomely-flawed Brennan Manning. Resonated well personally with directions for accepting yourself as well as accepting others the way Christ did and does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mac | 12/15/2013

    " i love manning. but this one didn't capture me as i had anticipated it would. want to go back and read it through again. i think maybe my timing in reading it was off. still, worth checking out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Spooner | 12/14/2013

    " This is book I will read again and again. It was a lot to take in, in one read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Salahub | 11/20/2013

    " Too much emphasis on love, love is not the only God's attribute, and some people might interpret what the author talks about in a very wrong way. So I wish Brennan could address the downturns of what he discusses. However, it still encourages a lot and helps to remember how God is enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norah Jones | 11/3/2013

    " What a moving and life-altering author. I always feel like I have been hit by a brick when I read Manning's books - and reading them always clears my head and puts me on a better and more humane track. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee | 9/5/2013

    " Brennan continues to inspire me by painting more colorful brushstrokes of God's grace. Definitely needed to hear this message. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shiloh | 8/3/2013

    " Very powerful and poetically written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 7/22/2013

    " While an important concept, I felt the books was redundant and sparse on theological meat to chew on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alana | 7/10/2013

    " Powerful. Read this too quickly...will have to take time to go through it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 7/9/2013

    " a quick and encouraging read. just right for the moment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 1/19/2013

    " The scariest part of this book was how difficult I found it to believe. This perhaps says more of my current state that Manning's writing. As I finished, I felt like a little girl singing "Jesus Loves Me," alternating between yearning and defiance. Jesus loves me? Jesus loves me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janna Lafrance | 12/13/2012

    " Some of the pages in this book, I have dog-eared and re-read ten, or even twenty times. It's really great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dynasty | 9/10/2011

    " Manning has such a way with sitting you down and explaining the simple, yet incredible truth of God's love for you. I loved this book from start to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Brager | 8/6/2011

    " one of the best books I have ever read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 6/1/2011

    " This would be a better book if the author were not always holding himself up as an example. He seems to think we should all be equally impressed with him. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienne | 5/15/2011

    " Some good ideas, but I found it fairly recycled. I ended up with 3-4 quotes and discarded the rest as 'been there heard that'.
    I did like "You are only a troubled guest on the dark earth." which is Goethe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norah | 5/6/2011

    " What a moving and life-altering author. I always feel like I have been hit by a brick when I read Manning's books - and reading them always clears my head and puts me on a better and more humane track. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/5/2011

    " can't really describe how moving this work is... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 9/23/2010

    " Brennan Manning has a beautiful way with words. Some of the things he said and the way he said them just blew me away. It kind of tapered off a bit toward the end, but it was still a really, really good book. I may even give it a few months and then reread it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 9/23/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wade | 12/31/2009

    " A good book about the importance of knowing God as “Abba” and living out of His love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler | 12/12/2009

    " I always love Brennan's transparency. Thank you for reminding me of the gravity of belonging to Abba. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/18/2009

    " Picked it up on a whim from an in-store display, brought it home and was not disappointed. Manning's simplicity and passion are inspiring. "
