This book is an excellent look at how Jesus was tender yet powerful. Brennan Manning breaks down in three sections Experiencing Jesus, Jesus at Easter, and Jesus at Christmas. Manning is able to explain in simple terms and ways just how Jesus loves us.

Very readable, not quite as incredible as 'The Ragamuffin Gospel' by the same author, but still thought-provoking. Brendan Manning looks at Jesus from various viewpoint, focussing each time back to his love and tenderness. Recommended, at least for Christians who like to think.
