See You Later, Brennan Manning
Brennan Manning and his books became a sort of mentor to me. He talked all about the weakness and ugliness in his life, and how, nevertheless—maybe because of it—God showed Himself perfectly wonderful to sloppy Brennan. Brennan fell in love, just as God planned. And, just yesterday, weakness ushered Brennan home to be with the One he loved, the same as it will for me one day. I’m glad he has always gone ahead of me, leaving some understanding for me to follow. He was one of my highest heroes.
