Personally, I love this book though I think it's not a book for everyone. I personally think it's not a book someone just gets for another as a gift. It's the type of book one walks up to the shelf to pick up themselves. It's a intentional book. It's a book for christians who are tired of the mediocre and religious cliches.
Author Francis Chan who is the founding pastor of cornerstone church in Simi valley California encourages Christians in this powerful piece to dare to take the bible literally. If we really knew how much God loves us, it would entirely change our service to him. Personally getting to the middle of the this classic, I was raising a number of questions in my mind against the author's views but that shows more of the pop Christianity we have been fed with as a church through various books. The last chapter titled 'the crux of the matter' is worth the price of the book but one cannot fully grasp the truth in it without reading the entire book.
'Crazy Love' is a must read for every Christian. Your faith would surely be reshaped and be seen in a better perspective as Francis Chan leads you through God's word on an urgent message this generation really needs to hear. You can't afford not to get Crazy Love. No one is gonna buy this one for you so you wouldn't think them crazy. Get crazy love, it's the beginning of an experience some would definitely term crazy.
"Christians are like manure: spread them out and they help everything grow better, but keep them in one big pile and they stink horribly.” - Francis Chan (From Crazy Love)
