God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Revised and updated edition of the best-seller, now with a new preface and a bonus chapter.
Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe - the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor - loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not, we all know something’s wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions?
God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do's and don'ts - it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

Many important bases are covered.
It is from the heart, true and stirred my own spirit to rejoice in following the Holy Spirit.
Chapter 11 and 12 was very convicting to serve in my own personal walk which is the place God wants me to work.
The reality of God shakes the soul into action
Some books are like chicken, you eat most but have some bones to throw away. This was boneless chicken. It was all good.
Say something about yourself!
Have to say, Chan has created an incredible work here. I can feel his emotion in his narration it really brings his deeper message of a closer relationship home. The content and the presentation here are amazing. Highly recommend!
Convicted by the fact that my Christian life does not reflect what Christ had in mind for me. Success defined by the world is not success according to Christ. With Gods help we can live according to His true will.
Life changing love
This book totally changed the way I viewed God and my life on pursuit of Him
I think hearing him speak, you hear the raw emotion and passion he has for Jesus
lol a few differences in how it was read and what's in the book (ei moses in print, paul is read) but in my high pitched Francis voice: "who cares!? it's not about us! it's about a God that we were created to love and worship! what does that mean to you?"
A fresh perspective on authentic Christianity. We play church, and being a "good" christian, and expect ________because we perform for God. and love expecting something for ourselves- Chan shatters the concept and breaks thru to authentic 'creatureliness' and reminds us how big our God is..
My dream job would be reading for a living...
You're Just Not That Into Him
Don't be decieved by the title of this book. Although it is most certainly about God's love for us, this book is more a call to action than anything. Expect to be both challenged and convicted. Crazy Love is blaring wake up call to those believers who are snoozing at the wheel. This book is anything but your typical feel good Christian book. But then again, do we really need another one of those?
"Challenging, convicting, life-transforming"
If you're not willing to be challenged or convicted, and unprepared for your walk as a Christian to be scrutinised and altered - then this is not the book for you. However, it IS a book that all Christians should listen to or read as it contains truths that are not sugar coated or glossed over, and they are truths we need to hear. Amazing words from such a humble servant of God, and I will definitely be listening again to bring about change in my own life.
