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...

"Im Himmel war ich zu Hause; dort gehörte ich hin. An diesem Ort wollte ich sein, mehr als ich jemals irgendwo auf der Erde hatte sein wollen. Die Zeit war nicht mehr, und ich lebte einfach in der Gegenwart. Alle Sorgen, Ängste und Bedenken waren verschwunden. Ich war völlig bedürfnislos und fühlte mich vollkommen glücklich." Don Piper Bei einem schweren Verkehrsunfall wurde Don Pipers Auto von einem LKW völlig zerquetscht. Die Sanitäter konnten nur noch Pipers Tod feststellen. Sein lebloser Körper lag in dem Autowrack, doch seine Seele erlebte bereits die unbeschreibliche Schönheit des Himmels. 90 Minuten nach dem Unfall kehrte Don Piper wie durch ein Wunder ins Leben zurück. In den folgenden Monaten durchlebte er eine schmerzhafte Zeit der Rekonvaleszenz. Doch was ihn in dieser Zeit tröstete, waren die wunderbaren Erlebnisse im Himmel. Lange konnte und wollte Don Piper nicht über seine Nahtod-Erfahrungen reden, denn sie erschienen ihm zu heilig und zu persönlich. Doch nun lässt er seine Leser an diesem einzigartigen Erlebnis teilhaben. Erfahren Sie, wie sich sein Leben nach diesem Unfall grundlegend änderte. Und lassen auch Sie sich davon verändern! Mit über 4 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren ermutigte und tröstete dieser Bestseller bereits zahlreiche Menschen. Im Jahr 2006 wurde das Buch mit dem renommierten Platin-Award der Vereinigung evangelikaler Verleger (Evangelical Christian Publishers Association) ausgezeichnet. Es wurde inzwischen in 36 Sprachen übersetzt.
