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.

What an incredible read! Francis Chan does a beautiful job describing the unconditional love of our Creator in this book. I am at a lost for words when I think about how much He loves us. This is a must read and I am beyond words to describ it... because it is that good!
Convicting!!!!| Posted August 27, 2013
I would say this book is a must read, however, it's probably not for everyone. If you like your faith comfortable, easy, complacent, and basically unchallenging, then don't bother. However, if you've always thought there has to be more to the Christian life or if your truly passionate about following Christ with all of your heart then this book will give you a good place to start. It's convicting, challenging, but beneficial. All in all it's good spiritual medicine. I highly recommend!
Great book| Posted July 02, 2013
This is a great book and an easy read!
I love how he challenges almost everything in this book. He really takes Christianity to the extreme and if you take the advice on you could be a radical servant of God that does big things for the Kingdom. This man is on to it.
Incredible & life-changing!| Posted August 31, 2011
This book is amazing. A while back, I had begin to question the complexity and sophisticated structure of this universe but I didn't know how to make use of those thoughts. Then many people recommended this book to me so I bought it. I haven't even finished reading it and my life has changed. From the first chapter, I knew I'd never be the same. I thank God so much for Francis Chan's life. I see him as a modern-day Paul. God has opened my eyes through him. I'm so grateful. His family also, especially his wife, are a great inspiration. I've been transformed from a lukewarm christian to a zealous radical follower of Christ. I'm doing/saying/thinking things I've never done or would imagine doing in my life. I have a whole new perspective of life and what it means to be a Christian. I'm all about Jesus.
You cannot read this book without being a complete different person you were before reading it. I'm hooked on this book. All glory & honor belongs to our amazing, creative God!!! BUY THIS BOOK!
Excellent Book| Posted October 07, 2009
Francis Chan is a great speaker and author. This book reminds us that what the Christian life is all about is a love relationship with the God of the universe. It reminds us that there is no middle road in following God. It is challenging and comforting to be reminded that the God who created the universe loves us. Now, with that knowledge how can we live lukewarm, middle ground lives?
Worth reading!| Posted September 24, 2009
Even though this book came out a year ago, I just now read it. I'm a slow reader. There's so many books that I want to read. This book made me feel good . I like when Chan writes "He (God) wants us, chooses us, even considers us His inheritance
Great Book enjoy with a small group| Posted September 16, 2009
This is a great book by Francis Chan that ultimately explores your love for God and His ultimate love for you. He encourages you to make a stand and do something crazy for God. God wants us to be loud and out spoken about our love for him. The love he displays to us is never ending deeper then we will ever imagine and that should be contagious!
This is a great read that makes you want a closer relationship with God.
Crazy Love is a Must-Read!| Posted September 16, 2009
"God is love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it?" So begins the back-cover of the book. Chan takes the first few chapters to make us realize that we are indeed "missing it"! Our view of God is narrow and small. As the book unfolds, Chan shows us (complete with directions to view videos on his website) how amazing God is and how small we are in comparison. This book is for you if something deep inside of you longs to break free from the status quo. This book is for you if you are hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with radical solutions.
