Crazy Love by Francis Chan

God is really that crazy.

Francis Chan is superb speaker and he has translated that talent into a wonderful book. The theme of this book is found right in the title: God’s love is pretty crazy. One of the reasons we have such a difficult time accepting God’s love is that it seems too good to be true. We really do not believe anyone could love of that much, especially someone who knows everything about us.

He sums it up perfectly with: “God does not just want us to have good theology; He wants us to know and love Him.” Think of it in more human terms: what is more important having your spouse remember all the tiniest details about you or having your spouse’s desire and love? "The greatest knowledge we can ever have is knowing God treasures us."

I love this book. I think it is important for everyone – young or old, seasoned Christian or recent believer – to remember that God loves you more than you will ever understand.
