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.
Reality Check for Western Churches
I completely agree with Francis Chan. We in America are oblivious to many of the struggles in the rest of the world. We are so consumer driven and it’s infiltrated our churches and we justify it. I believe we need to be transformed in America and need to be more concerned about reaching the lost than earning a paycheck.
Might be one of the best books I’ve ever listened to or read. Chan has a clear simple understanding of the message Christ gave to the world. This book will convict you and make you check your spiritual health. If you take this message as it is, it could be life-changing.
