Read full description of the books Posers, Fakers, and Wannabes: Unmasking the Real You:Adapted from another work, this quick read by Manning is primarily an exhortation to love and be loved. The way Manning writes and the method in which Hancock edits is a perfect combination for younger audiences looking for an overview of the Christian narrative.
The story Manning tells is ultimately one of commitment; the commitment of God to love us, even when we feel or act unlovable, and the commitment we must show to God in the way we live out our love for Christ. This dynamic life of love is set in opposition to the life urged by "the Poser," that side of each of us which seeks to hide, pretend, or gloat for the protection of our self-image. It's a common message, but one that Manning communicates with deep care, concern, clarity, and confession.
Overall, I didn't expect to be drawn into this work, but by the end I found myself paying greater and greater attention to the stories and the life experiences of this man of God, and reminded of the great love story we find ourselves a part of when we begin to listen to the longings of our hearts and the beckoning of Christ.
Read information about the authorRichard Francis Xavier Manning, known as Brennan Manning (April 27, 1934 – April 12, 2013)was an American author, friar, priest, contemplative and speaker.Born and raised in Depression-era New York City, Manning finished high school, enlisted in the US Marine Corps, and fought in the Korean War. After returning to the United States, he enrolled at Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania. Upon his graduation from the seminary in 1963, Manning was ordained a Franciscan priest.
In the late 1960s, Manning joined the Little Brothers of Jesus of Charles de Foucauld, a religious institute committed to an uncloistered, contemplative life among the poor. Manning transported water via donkey, worked as a mason's assistant and a dishwasher in France, was imprisoned (by choice) in Switzerland, and spent six months in a remote cave somewhere in the Zaragoza desert. In the 1970s, Manning returned to the United States and began writing after confronting his alcoholism.
