Recommended Read: Crazy Love, by Francis Chan


Lately I have been digging into a book called "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan. I got to say, It's not just one of those books that you read, enjoy and never think about again, in fact after reading it I almost feel as if someone is trying to pick me up off of my couch in an attempt to get me to do something big for Christ, right there on the spot. I feel almost a spiritual need to go help someone in some third world country, and it isn't like a condemning or an obligatory feeling, as if I had to do something just because it's my duty as a Christian, or that I'm going to hell if I don't. I actually feel a desire to go feed the hungry, and a want to help the needy. It made me want to serve and follow Christ, not just out of duty, but also out of love. This book inspired me to get back into writing for this blog, and I hope you can find the time in your schedule to read this amazing book and be drawn closer to God through doing so.

That sounds like a good book...Caleb and my mom read it but I never did. I think I will have to read it now!

Thanks for sharing.

Well, we actually never read it. We listened to the audiobook. It was really good though. Reminds me of painting for some reason...........

I totally got that same feeling of more motivation to serve God not because it is my duty but because I want to because of God's love.

Crazy Love is a great book, Franchis Chan does a great job presenting this subject and is very humble about it. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Thanks CJ for the post :)
