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
The beauty of this book was absolutely life affirming and the truth of what Francis shares is both overwhelming in its insight yet simple to understand. I felt so many different things while listening to him speak. I really sensed the sincerity and honesty of his words. There is no doubt the Holy Spirit inspired this book.
This book was an eye opener for me. Francis Chan has a gift for delivering perspective and the truth about what it actually means to love God and follow Christ. I am inspired and so deeply moved by the message. I love how he references his messages with verses from the bible and shares stories about others who spread radical, all out love for God. Just inspiring. I also love what he shares about the lukewarm believer. So straightforward. So humbling. Very well written. Very easy to listen to. I will end up listening to it again and again. Highly recommend for anyone. Whether you need to be woken up from your complacent relationship with God, or if you think you've got you're relationship with God down.. This books for you. This book has definitely refreshed something in my spirit that wasn't there before. What a valuable, valuable read.
Francis challenges the reader to take the Bible literally and follow its instructions. he also points out if you listen to Christ and follow his instructions you probably will be labeled a radical.
A great book for those who dont want to question their faith by any means, but to truly look deep within yourself on how to live a God pleasing life. Also to observe how engrained God really is in your life.
"Another great book delivered by Francis Chan."
I loved this book, I was completely gripped and listened to it with a day. Thank you Francis for your obedience in Him.
"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.
