 Is Brennan Manning the real deal?

I am reading the ragamuffin gospel and I really like it. I read it because my hero is Rich Mullins and this was his hero.

Was he Catholic? Is he the real deal? :)

 Re: Is Brennan Manning the real deal?

Born and raised in Depression-era New York City, Manning finished high school, enlisted in the US Marine Corps, and fought in the Korean War. After returning to the United States, he enrolled at Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania. Upon his graduation from the seminary in 1963, Manning was ordained a Franciscan priest.[2]

In the late 1960s, Manning joined the Little Brothers of Jesus of Charles de Foucauld, a religious institute committed to an uncloistered, contemplative life among the poor. Manning transported water via donkey, worked as a mason's assistant and a dishwasher in France, was imprisoned (by choice) in Switzerland, and spent six months in a remote cave somewhere in the Zaragoza desert.[5] In the 1970s, Manning returned to the United States and began writing after confronting his alcoholism.[citation needed]

Singer-songwriter Rich Mullins named his band, A Ragamuffin Band, after one of Manning's books.[6] Warren Barfield's music is also often inspired by Manning, as is the work of singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones.[7]

The following quote appeared in the prelude to dc Talk's song "What if I Stumble?" It also appeared on an intro track for the Christian metalcore band War of Ages on its album Fire From the Tomb.

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
