"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"--Page 2 of cover.

Francis will challenge your thoughts and feelings towards God, the church, religion, and your personal walk of faith. He asks great questions and really gets you thinking about what you could do to honor God. I really enjoyed this. It was a quick and easy read, if you're not much of a book person, you will still be able to get through this and quickly. This book is very well written.

Really enjoyed this book. It's a little basic, but at the same time intuitive. Tough to describe. It both opened new ways of thinking for me, but also reaffirmed truths that I already understood. Would recommend.

A call-to-action in faith, asking the questions of what you are doing to improve your faith, what changes you are (and aren't) making, and how you can love on everyone and anyone you meet. I enjoyed this book and the insights it gave me on how I can better live my life in service of God. A great book on His love and how we can love and trust Him more.

Written for those who love their electronics! Great videos to check out online that go with the book, but not my cup of tea. Disrupting to me to be told to stop reading and go watch a video online. When I read I sprawl and yes, I have my smart phone, but I don't want to watch a tiny video on it to supplement the book... So I never finished the book.

This was a great book, although extremely harsh at times. I prefer Max Lucado's gentle and profound style to Chan's at times rather confusing and disturbing writing. Still, it was a great reminder of God's love, and how He wants us to love Him more and more as well :)

Encourages me to live out my faith with a bite to it because of the frankness of the messages.

You can get a pretty good idea of what this book is about by listening to a few of Chan's sermons (try YouTubeing 'Lukewarm and Loving It'). Since I've subscribed to his podcast for a while, it wasn't too groundbreaking for me; but it definitely has some really important truths that all Christians need to be reminded of.

I enjoyed this book. It gives deep insight to how much God loves us and wants us to follow Him. It challenges you to become more active and less complacent in your relationship with God. If you want to be challenged and have some deep thoughts read this book. If you want something that will tell you that you are perfect and everything is fine, then this is not the book for you.
