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
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.
Simple and plain reading of the Holy Bible led Francis Chan to write this exhortation to examine oneself and one's walk with Jesus Christ. Francis encourages us to allow the Holy Spirit to expose areas in our lives where we are living contrary to Scripture, and does so effectively. Let the adventure begin!
Francis Chan is amazing. Gives a life changing perspective. A must read book, great for anyone at any stage in their faith journey.
This book has giving me another perspective in regards of what it means to be a true believer. How much we think we have it all together but we are so far from what our Abba has commanded us to do. So thankful that I was able to receive this life changing teaching. I just want everyone I know to read it. May The Lord continue to bless Francis Chan and his house for allowing The Eternal God to use him to reach out to others and exhort us to behave like true children of The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
