Revised & Updated—and now available in Hardcover! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. 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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Francis Chan is the bestselling author of Crazy Love, Forgotten God, Erasing Hell, Multiply, and You and Me Forever. He is currently a pastor of We Are Church, a house church network that is planting churches in Northern California. Francis and his wife of twenty-five years, Lisa, have seven children and one beautiful granddaughter.
Francis hits the nail on the head here in what it means to be in a right relationship with God. People against what Francis preaches call it Lordship salvation but they don't understand the bible. How can you call God or Jesus a king and not think their people/children fall under their kingship. Francis really addresses the "why" to give yourself fully to God. -Tom
There are few books that really have challenged me in the way that Crazy Love by Francis Chan challenged me. There are moments where Chan's honestly and blunt nature really pulls back the excuses that I make when attempting to follow God. This book is a quick read and even includes online content for each chapter. This is a great book for someone looking to dive deeper in their relationship with God. As I said before, Chan can be blunt which at times might come across as harsh. In continuing reading the book, you realize this is more helpful than it is hurtful. This is a great book to read as a group so that you can discuss and debrief what you've read. - Jon Greenhill
