With "Patched Together," Brennan Manning reminds us that the freedom and joy of acceptance is rooted in the forgiving love of God. From the beloved author of "The Ragamuffin Gospel" comes a tender story for anyone who has ever said: "life didn't quite turn out the way I thought it would, but..." In this warm and charming three-part story, Willie Juan moves from orphaned boy to prodigal adult to ragamuffin friend of Abba. As with any parable, there is one overarching truth: the unconditional love of God. "Patched Together" is a charming retelling of the Gospel story of forgiveness, acceptance, and joy in God's friendship.

"Paul Michael narrates this three-part semiautobiographical story of Willie Juan with authenticity. Willie is an orphan boy with a bad leg and a body scarred by fire who is being raised by his grandmother, Calm Sunset, in the border town of Hopi, Mexico. Michael's impressive command of the story's subtleties captures Juan's three seasons of life, portrayed as "morning," his growing up years, during which he's crippled and scarred; "noon," his adult years of incredible successes and heartbreaks; and "night," his later years of love and marriage. Michael's poignant depiction of Juan's transforming journey to the "cave of bright darkness" and his encounter with the Man of Sorrows brings tears. This appealing parable is an unforgettable narrative of trust and friendship with God. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
