Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love.Revised and updated edition of the best-seller, now with a new preface and a bonus chapter.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."

How should one love God? For believers, this is an important question. Many Christians demonstrate their love through Sunday church outings. However, pastor Francis Chan feels there's something missing in such uniform displays of piety, most of which ring hollow to him. Here, Chan offers another way to revere God and looks into his own past to determine from where religious uncertainties originate. As a reader, Chan turns in serviceable performance. He sounds conversational and approachable, and his narration is clear. Yet, his reading is languid—and this undermines the power of his book. Unfortunately for listeners, Chan's reading fails to convey any of the book's zeal or its author's enthusiasm. A David C. Cook paperback. (July)
