Publisher's Summary

God is love. 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.

Passionate and true Christianity. The profile of a luke-warm Christian deeply convicted me. Please do read this.

Solidly challenging and a great all to action

Francis shares openly and faithfully from Gods Word to point us to His amazing love for us, and how we are called to a life of obedience and joy in Him.

Now to turn conviction into action - for the glory of the King!

Act

If you are lacking direction and feel discontent with how you’re living your life in God, you must read/hear this book.

Having heard, you must then act.

A Blessing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Many important bases are covered.

What did you like best about this story?

It is from the heart, true and stirred my own spirit to rejoice in following the Holy Spirit.

Which scene was your favorite?

Chapter 11 and 12 was very convicting to serve in my own personal walk which is the place God wants me to work.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The reality of God shakes the soul into action

Any additional comments?

Some books are like chicken, you eat most but have some bones to throw away. This was boneless chicken. It was all good.

Must Read/Listen

This book, though beautifully written by Francis Chan whom God is using magnificently, is a call to see how much the God of the universe loves us. We are beyond unworthy and yet this book shows how much His love is for you, but it also shows how much we should love Him in return! What a beautiful truth and a hard, yet needed, calling! Thank you God for speaking the words to Francis and thank you Francis for being bold enough to write what God was laying on your heart!

Don't Be Inspired

As Christians we often read books or listen to sermons and feel inspired by then. Don't listen to this book and just feel inspired. Listen to it and allow God to change the direction your life is headed.

Awesome Book!

Listened to it by myself the first time and loved it so much I listened to it a second time with my husband. I recommend Forgotten God as well. Perfect book to read along with Crazy Love!

If you want change, here it is.

A great book for those who dont want to question their faith by any means, but to truly look deep within yourself on how to live a God pleasing life. Also to observe how engrained God really is in your life.

Must Read!

Convicted by the fact that my Christian life does not reflect what Christ had in mind for me. Success defined by the world is not success according to Christ. With Gods help we can live according to His true will.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Francis Should Not Read His Books

Would you try another book from Francis Chan and/or Francis Chan?

I love this book and I love to hear Francis Chan. However, this book put me to sleep the way he read it. I was looking forward to listening on my road trip and I had to put on something else. He does not read it with the passion he possesses in his speaking. It was so distracting I had to just stop.

What didn’t you like about Francis Chan’s performance?

He seemed to read it without feeling. Just reading words and was very slow and methodical. Nothing like he speaks.

Did Crazy Love (Revised and Updated) inspire you to do anything?

He's an amazing teacher and this book is a classic for me to go to. But, I'll have to have a hard copy and not the audible.

Absolutely Brilliant

So well read. A very convicting listen. It is a book I will come back too. I have bought the study guide that accompanies it now as Chan covers a number of issues that need to be taken head on personally and more widely within the church.

Challenging, convicting, life-transforming

If you're not willing to be challenged or convicted, and unprepared for your walk as a Christian to be scrutinised and altered - then this is not the book for you. However, it IS a book that all Christians should listen to or read as it contains truths that are not sugar coated or glossed over, and they are truths we need to hear. Amazing words from such a humble servant of God, and I will definitely be listening again to bring about change in my own life.

Francis Chan is not a good narrator

Francis Chan is a very inspiring preacher, I have heard him preach many times on YouTube, but he is not a good narrator. It is a very different skill. He sounds as if he is reading to the book, not reading to the listener, and he sounds as if he is bored with what he is reading, ..... perhaps having preached this message so often it is not fresh to him. In his preaching he is passionate about his message, but in his narration his speaking lacks vitality and it is thus relatively difficult to keep one's attention on it. Thus I cant give a rating on the content, because I did not hear it all, I became bored due to the lack of narration skill.

A jolt to the system and a re-evaluation of what it means to be a Christan, but more important, a follower of Christ

And I thought I was a Christian?

Francis Chan really did open my eyes and made me sit up and think - am I really a Christian? This audiobook is a gem and I listened to it over a two day period, I simply wasn't able to put it down! Really thought-provoking with excellent biblical references. Thank you, Francis.

Enjoyed the book

So many good things in here, Francis just leaves the door open for some Christians to question “I’ve become a Christian but am I saved?” Which is never good. Video below will help clarify by Joseph Prince

Every breath is a gift

I recently watched one or two messages from Francis Chan and felt challenged that my own Christian life was falling short of God's best. I purchased this audio book in the hope that God would show me through the example of other Jesus followers, how to be sensitive to His leading. I wasn't to be disappointed. This book doesn't claim to have all the answers, but gives testimony after testimony of God's faithfulness to all that would seek to truly live for Him.
