Francis Chan's Crazy Love

Jennifer Schuchmann, Copyright Christianity Today International

"The greatest things that have happened to this church haven't been planned and haven't been orchestrated by me," Chan admits. "I have no clue where we'll be a month or two from now. I'm just trying to be led by the Spirit; I'm trying to be led by the Word of God."

Chan wants believers to eliminate every excuse for not living a radical love-motivated life in response to God's passionate love for us. He says he isn't crazy for trying to live this way. In fact, he believes living this way is the only thing that makes sense.
