I’m reading a book called Crazy Love: OVERWHELMED BY A RELENTLESS GOD by Francis Chan. If you’re seeking to experience God in a deeper way, you need to read this…but be prepared to be challenged! I’m being tremendously challenged by the first few chapters I’ve read so far. In his preface, Chan writes, “This book is written for those who want more Jesus. It is for those who are bored with what American Christianity offers. It is for those who don’t want to plateau, those who would rather die before their convictions do.” His hope is that this book will convince you “that by surrendering yourself totally to God’s purposes, He will bring you the most pleasure in this life and the next.”
The first chapter begins by talking about the awesomeness of God and how we can see His divine nature through His creation: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” ROMANS 1:20, New International Version, ©2010. And Chan has a great video he refers you to, to illustrate this point so clearly (the image above is from his video). You can watch it by clicking HERE–I hope you get a chance to view it–I think you’ll find it pretty amazing!
Awesome…I will have to check it out!
Thanks for the book reccomendation. It sounds great. I’m going to get it.
