This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series Crazy Love Review

Our study through the book Crazy Love has been great. It has generated good discussion and it has made us think. This week was no different. I’ll just jump right in and say it, Chapter 5 of Crazy Love is controversial. The title of the chapter is serving leftovers to a holy God. In Chapter 4, Chan gives us a

I have always been a “gadget” guy.  I like experimenting and using the latest technology.  The latest and greatest item to grab my attention is the new Amazon Kindle book reader.   I enjoy reading and try to read at least one new book a week, so I could definitely save some money over time by buying the cheaper electronic version

Here are some characteristics of a lukewarm Christian: they

One of the books that I read last year that had a profound impact on me was Crazy Love by Francis Chan. I love hearing Chan speak and preach, and this book really comes to life with the message that we should be crazy in love with God, because He is crazy in love with us.  I heard Francis speak

I wanted to share a couple of albums that I’m looking forward to. The first is the new debut album from Fiction Family, a musical collaboration between Switchfoot front man Jon Foreman and Nickel Creek guitarist Sean Watkins. It has a cool flow and feel to the music. It is very reminiscent of Jon Foreman’s recent solo albums and I

If you watched 24 last night, I hope you were troubled by the images of the child soldiers in Africa. Unfortunately it’s not just a movie, it’s real life for many children around the world.
