1. Abba’s Child by: Brennan Manning
This is one of the few books I’ve ever read and then re-read. I’m usually lucky to get all the way through a book the first time! This book was different. Manning’s raw, unfiltered, authentic style combined with the important topics covered in the book were transformational for me. “Abba” is the intimate expression for “Dad” or “Papa” that Jesus used when talking to God the Father and He invites us to approach Him with that same level of intimacy. This book helped me rediscover my identity as a child of God and removed so much clutter and stress that comes from building our identity on anything or anyone else.
