What Are You Reading? January 17, 2011

I am currently reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan.  I’ve been wanting to read this book for several months and have finally gotten around to doing it!!  I am three-fourths of the way through the book and have really enjoyed it.  Chan definitely challenges your thinking and helps you to change your perspective on things.  Here is a summary from Amazon.com:

God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? 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. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not…we all know somethings 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. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts—it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

I would encourage anyone who is tired of the “status quo” of Christianity to read this book!!  So, that’s what I’m reading this week….what are you reading?!?

    I’m starting Anthony DeSteffano’s book, “The Ten Prayers God Always Answers”. His book, “Travel Guide to Heaven” was fabulous…Well-founded scripturally, it was a fascinating “…could this be?…” kind of read! (NOTE: author’s last name and the titles are close approximations…am working from memory…. 🙂 )
