Revised & Updated Edition! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. 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.

ABOUT THE BOOK “As Francis so brilliantly illustrates, the life that Jesus calls us to is absolute craziness to the world. Sure, it’s fine and politically correct to believe in God, but to really love Him is a whole different story.” This signature quote by worship leader Chris Tomlin written in the Foreword to Crazy Love, is a perfect starting place for getting an understanding of Francis Chan’s powerful work and the significance of it in our culture. I like that Tomlin refers to what Chan does, first and foremost, as illustration. That’s insightful because although Crazy Love is rich with controversy, if we dare to view it from the onset through the lens of the term illustrator we are much more likely to enjoy the ride. In common usage, illustrate means to paint a picture that captures or enables us to see the words. Writers at Dictionary.com defines illustrate as, “to clarify or explain by use of examples, explain or decorate with pictures; to enlighten.” With that said then, Chan stands as one man with a “paint brush” a vision and a point of view, all of which bow to his experiences, both spiritual and natural. MEET THE AUTHOR Teirrah McNair is a college graduate who has been writing for stage, video and publications for over 20 years. A former youth pastor and educator, McNair penned over 25 short plays for children as artist in residence in California and Alaska. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Cornerstone Church has not been the same since, and now loves its neighbors in contributing over 55% of the church’s income to charitable causes. Chan, the always controversial and beaming proud dad, has moved on, and is now living and loving his neighbors in San Francisco through an organization called San Francisco City Impact. The long list of projects in San Francisco, Simi Valley and globally clearly demonstrate that Chan has a heart for impacting the community he lives in. The busy author, speaker, teacher and neighborhood improvement specialist has penned two additional books for adults, Forgotten God and Erasing Hell as well as three children’s books...

Dr Browne-Smith, Mitglied der Prüfungskommission des Lonsdale Colleges, ist bei seinen Kollegen nicht unbedingt beliebt. So ist denn auch niemand allzu unglücklich, dass er das Feierabendbier wegen Kopfschmerzen ablehnt. Als er jedoch nicht mehr zur Arbeit erscheint und eine ominöse Abwesenheitsnotiz von ihm auftaucht, wird der Rektor misstrauisch. Sein alter Freund Inspector Morse verspricht, Augen und Ohren offenzuhalten. Kurz darauf hat dieser jedoch ganz andere Sorgen: Aus dem Oxford-Kanal wird eine Wasserleiche geborgen – und mit ihr die Überreste eines Briefs, die Morse scheinbar direkt ins Herz des elitären Lonsdale Colleges führen.

When it comes to God’s grace and forgiveness, do you sometimes feel like church folks speak out of both sides of their mouths? In this provocative book, Pastor Jeremy White explains why God’s grace and truth do not “balance” each other out. Instead, you will discover that grace is radically imbalanced in your favor! Learn to let go of that religious checklist of “do’s and don’ts” in exchange for the unconditional grace of God offered to you in Christ. “What if everything you’ve ever dreamed of in your relationship with God is already yours to enjoy? What if you just don’t realize how good you’ve got it? That’s the radical message in The Gospel Uncut by Jeremy White, a pastor who is not afraid to proclaim the gospel of grace, plainly and without compromise. Read this book to see you are clean and close to your God. Read this book to relax and enjoy your Jesus. He loves you so!” Andrew Farley, bestselling author of “The Naked Gospel” and host of “Andrew Farley LIVE” on Sirius XM “Everyone looks for that just-right book, the one that will quickly illuminate and invigorate, and which will resolve odd questions that have plagued for years. This is that book. I’m not kidding. The Gospel Uncut is truly a treasure that is both breathtaking and timely! Jeremy White skillfully leads the reader out of tangled wonderings about God and into the clear and easy rest and love that Jesus offers to all. If you’re looking for treasure, get this book!” Ralph Harris, author of “God’s Astounding Opinion of You” and President of Life Course Ministries.

Dios lo está llamando a una apasionada relación con Él. ¡El Dios del universo, el Creador, está loco por usted! Francis Chan comparte sus propias luchas y sacrificios, y hace un llamado urgente a vivir una vida totalmente desprendida como la que vivió Jesús. Chan reta a cada lector a tomar en serio y conciencia de la Biblia. Él describe el lamentable estado de tibieza de los cristianos que luchan por una vida en donde impera el control, la seguridad y falta de sufrimiento. En contraste, este libro ofrece relatos y hechos reales de cristianos que lo dieron todo: tiempo, dinero, salud e inclusive su propia vida en total rendimiento y obediencia tras el llamado de Cristo. “Loco amor puede ser el libro más retante fuera de la Palabra de Dios que usted pueda leer este año.” --Chris Tomlin

In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church's power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we've ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan's invitation to stop and remember the One we've forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.
