From the Publisher
Author Francis Chan.
God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love.
This sounds crazy to some: There's a God, all-powerful and all-knowing, and He loves you. And not just any kind of love, this is the I love you so much I'll send my Son to die on a cross to save you kind of love. And maybe it is crazy. Crazy in all the right ways.
Think about it. God, the Creator of everything -from nitrogen to pine needles; from oceans to E-minor -That God, loves you. And after we rebelled and rejected Him, He loved us so much, He made a plan to rescue us so we might be with him forever. So yeah, that's a little crazy. But it's true and it's the good news that has changed billions of lives over the past 2000 years.
Endorsements of Crazy Love
“Crazy Love leaves you wanting more, more of the matchless Jesus who offers radical life for all right now.”
- Louie Giglio, director of Passion Conferences.
"In Crazy Love, Francis peels back what we think the Christian life is, and guides us down the path toward an uncommon intimacy with Jesus—an intimacy which can’t help but change the world around us!"
- Joni Eareckson Tada.
“In an age of religious phonies, spiritual apathy, and disheartening books suggesting that God is a delusion, Crazy Love shines like a glorious beacon of hope and light."
- Kirk Cameron.
Other Titles from Francis Chan
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it.
With a humble respect for God's Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. Like you, sometimes they just don't want to believe in hell. This is not a book about who is saying what: it's a book about what God says. It's not a book about impersonal theological issues: it's a book about people who God loves. It's not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right: it's a book about the character of God.
Most Christians today are not known for making disciples. We have developed a culture where a minister ministers and the rest of us sit back and enjoy 'church' from a comfortable distance. This is not what God intends for His church. Every Christian is called by God to minister. You are called to make disciples.

At the same time, I feel that his book pushes a "works over faith" mentality. He focuses very much on "What are you doing to show that you are living for Christ?", which is good to a point, but can also push people to focus so much on what they're doing that they forget to actually maintain a relationship with God. I found myself feeling very attacked at some points. I disagreed with some of his claims to things that should and should not be seen in the life of a follower of Christ. Biblical people who had sin issues in their lives despite being followers of God are completely ignored (David, Moses, Aaron, etc.). Instead, Chan gives the perception that people who have given their lives to Christ shouldn't have questions, shouldn't struggle, etc. Those that do, he appears to question their salvation.
Chapter 5 was the chapter that really upset me. If it were not for the fact that we were reading this book for my life group, I would have stopped reading the book right there. Chan does have good things to say both in Chapter 5, before, and after, but some of the claims he made in Chapter 5 upset me so much (he suggested that a person asking if you have to be baptized to go to heaven is simply asking, can I not follow Christ and still get to heaven) that I was in tears and sick to my stomach.
I think Chan had good intentions, but I do not agree with some of his claims and was very upset by several. Therefore, I would not recommend this book.
