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!
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
I love Christian Fiction, especially Francine Rivers! Anything to help me with relationships, and Apologetics.
Francine Chan is used by God to help us have a correct view of God and who he really is. I love the book trying to make changes in my life that will reflect my love for Him. I found it challenging and dangerous to my status quo. I can not be the same but I am not sure how to treat everyone I meet as if they were Jesus? Asking for prayer because it is something I struggle with.
I've been a Christian for a long time. I thought I was a mature Christian, at the end of this book I feel like I'm still a baby in Christ. It's time to make changes to my life. Time to start walking and acting the way God wants me to.
It came at a time where my husband and I were literally going over the same issues addressed here the night before; it was as if this book supplemented our bible study whose central theme was was repentance and escaping the worlds corruption.
A rich blessing to hear these words. Going to listen to it again & take notes. God is faithful, and His Word is convicting, and He uses imperfect people to bless us with books like these.
Outstanding! This book is truth. If you are not challenged by this book as a Christian, you're either in a very good place, spiritually, or you're in denial.
Francis Chan has nailed what "true Christianity" is. This book is so full of sobering truth that I will definitely read it more than once. His personal narration makes it easy to listen to for hours. I thoroughly enjoyed this book & highly recommend it. It put me on my knees and forever changed the way I view the word of God when I read it!! Get it today if you haven't read it!!
