“…when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.” (Francis Chan)
Only a crazy, inexplicable love could drive Jesus Christ to endure the ultimate torture of Calvary’s cross just so He could spend eternity with sinful, messed up people like us! It doesn’t make rational sense. God is so holy, so perfect, and so powerfully vast. Why would He, why should He even grant us one lingering thought? His love for us can only be described as wild, radical, and absolutely wonderful! Through this book, Francis Chan seeks to drag us away from our religious rituals and routines so that we might be able dive into the depths of God’s magnificent love. But, you ask, how can we even begin to love Him back? How can we even hope to reciprocate even the smallest amount of what has been given us? It’s overwhelming. Open your heart as Chan opens our eyes to the passionate, intimate relationship our God desires and rejoice in the exhilarating, incomparable love He offers us!
