About the Bible:

Do you believe that God not only loves you, but that he also likes you?

It’s just one of the soul-searching questions posed by bestselling author Brennan Manning who confesses he has been ‘John the beloved, Peter the coward, and Thomas the doubter all before the waitress brought the check.’

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 to—like the prodigal son—his overjoyed father. When you journey through this Bible, you will likewise find yourself returning to your Heavenly Father, basking in the knowledge that God not only loves you, he delights in you.


  • Complete text of the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the NIV
  • 104 Devotions guide you into a deeper connection to God and his Word
  • 250 Reflections help you understand what it means to be a child of God
  • 150 Quotes offer short but thoughtful insights into God’s kingdom

My thoughts:

The subtitle of this bible says it all – “For the Bedraggled, Beat-Up & Brokenhearted.”  You really don’t have to say much at all after reading a title like that.  Who hasn’t been there before in their lives.  All people at some point or another in their life go through problems and obstacles that leave us feeling beat up or brokenhearted and at times we may even lose faith.  We can’t see the light or we need some help to get back to a better place.  This is the bible for all of us.  You don’t want to wait till you need it to buy it, you get this not and leave it in your library so if you or anyone you know ever needs it, it’s right there for you.  Yes this includes the full text of the bible but you are going to enjoy the extras and that’s what makes this bible a must have in my opinion.  Gift this bible to anyone you know that needs to find their way again.
