While sitting in different doctor's offices this week, I read through some of my magazines that I had packed into a bag to take along. In Fresno, CA's Peoples Church May Newsletter, Executive Pastor Doug Holck recommended a new book. With his permission, I share his endorsement with you:
"Just finished reading Francis Chan's book, Crazy Love. It is about God's crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. He writes, "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." He goes on: "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...Once you encounter His love...you'll never be the same." This book is a must read."
Christianaudio.com has a free download of Crazy Love by Francis Chan this month. I hope you'll get a chance to download it and spend some time thinking about God's love for you.
Thanks, for the recommendation, Pastor Doug!
