Crazy Love by Francis Chan

The previous post gives you access to all the videos that accompany Francis Chan's excellent book "Crazy Love" recommended on St. James' newsletter and available in the Parish Library.

Each video ends with a series of questions to help you think about the material and is ideal for group study.

In my review I wrote the following:

"Chan was born in San Francisco to native Chinese parents. His mother died giving birth to him. Chan's father remarried when Chan was about 7 years old. Then, his stepmother died in a car accident when he was 9 years old. His father remarried again when he was 10. His father then died of cancer when Chan was 12 years old. He did not get along well with his father growing up, but says that his fear of his father has helped him understand a level of fear of God. He also stated he didn't understand the love of God well until he became a father himself.

This book talks about the crazy and wonderful understanding of how the God of the Universe loves us and how Christianity is not about a bunch do’s and don’ts but a “falling in love with God.” It’s a great book and has sold over a million copies. Read it and find out why."
