Brendan Manning’s Trust

I love this quote. Speaking of his book Ruthless Trust, Brendan Manning says this:

“The underlying premise of this book: the splendor of a human heart which trusts that is loved gives God more pleasure than Westminster Chapel, the Sistine Chapel, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, the sight of ten thousand butterfiles in flight, or the scent of a million orchids in bloom.”

“Trust is our gift back to God, and he finds it so enchanting that Jesus died for love of it.”

  1. Dear Mr. Berryman,

    Just a note to say keep going. I enjoy your blog. I check it regularly. I have read your book, Leaving Ruin–it was very meaningful to me.

    You might be interested to know that I am reading your blog from South Korea. I won’t load you down with any more details about me.

    Thanks for sharing your life, thoughts and talents. It is a blessing.

    Warmly.
