If you haven’t had the opportunity to read the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan yet…take my word for it…read it! I purchased this as an audio book last year and loved it. Now, I am reading it again and it is even better this time around!
This book starts off with some foundational truths about God…but in the middle chapters in this book be prepared to be challenged, convicted, awed and inspired in your faith. I’m using my pen this time around and already have sooooo many lines underlined! Some would say that this book is “radical” or “extreme” but the more I read it, and dig into the scriptures myself, I think the challenges that Francis Chan gives us in this book are Biblical. Maybe they are extreme to us as modern-day Christians. But, no matter what century you live in, truth is truth. And this book has challenged me to really take a serious look at my walk with God and all that He is asking of me.
As a fan of Angie’s blog, Bring the Rain, I was excited to see that she and her friend Jessica were starting a BOOK CLUB (called Bloom) and their first book selection is Crazy Love!! They created a message board just for us to discuss this book and how we’re learning and growing through it. They have fun videos and interviews (like with Angie’s pastor) pertaining to the book, so it really is a great way to read a book!
If you have read (or are reading) Crazy Love, I’d love to hear about how you’re liking it and anything God has taught you through this book. And, if you do decide to start reading this book, be sure and check out the website for this book, the author has made videos to go along with each chapter and they are available online for free!
