Book Review: Crazy Love

I am so far behind on my reading 52 books in 52 weeks. So, I am really going to do my best to catch up and to add the remaining books. I am still going to do my best to come as close as possible to reading all of those books.

Here is another one to check off the list and such a good read!

Crazy Love by Francis Chan

Several years ago, there was all this hype about this book. I have trouble getting on those kind of bandwagons. I don’t like to just read or watch or listen to something because everyone is doing it. Everybody was saying this book was sooooooo good. It was a must read. And so on and so on. Again, I do not like getting on bandwagons. Well, maybe I should have gotten on the bandwagon. It really was a great book! I can completely understand all the hype!

Likes:
Francis Chan is right on with the whole Christianity thing. He really boils it down to what the church is supposed to be doing. He really makes you feel like sometimes you are doing it all wrong but it is ok because God still loves you and has plans for you. He makes it so clear what a life dedicated to Christ is really all about. He challenges you to live like that. Loved it! I could go on and on about what I like about the book and what I learned from the book.

Dislikes: The book ended. I could’ve kept reading it for much longer than I did. Sometimes I felt like he got a little repetitive. However, sometimes that is necessary for getting ideas through our thick heads.

Overall:
It was an awesome book! An Christian or even non-Christian should read to get what Christianity is really supposed to be about and not what the church has made it out to be. We have strayed so far from what we were made for and this book helps point you back in that direction. I would recommend it to anyone. I wish that people would see this side of Christianity instead of the side of Christianity that has hurt so many people in and out of the church.

Check it out!
