Colorado Springs, CO—Are we missing something? Crazy Love says perhaps we are. God is calling us to a passionate love with Himself, to an authentic faith, and to freedom from the status quo for which we often settle. That is Francis Chan’s radical message in his now New York Times best-selling book, Crazy Love, published by David C Cook.
First released in 2008 by David C Cook, Crazy Love hit the top of The New York Times Best Seller List this week. Crazy Love is #4 on the Paperback Advice list, having sold more than 1 million copies and dominated the attention of individuals from all backgrounds, book clubs, churches, and youth groups for many months. With an authentic message, a radical call to true faith, and a dare to fall head over heels in love with God, Chan’s challenge is resonating in hearts of all ages and promising an encounter with the love of God that will be forever transformational.
Chan is the former pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, CA, an evangelical church he started with his wife, Lisa, in 1994. Now in 2010 with nearly 2000 members, Cornerstone is one of the largest churches in Ventura County, CA. Counter-culture in his approach, Chan calls the church to a radical transformation by loving with abandon and daring to risk it all for a God who relentlessly pursues his people. In early 2010, Chan, living out his own message with bold authenticity, resigned from Cornerstone to pursue along with his family a new calling God had laid on his heart.
“We are thrilled that such an authentic and unabashed message about the love of God and God’s pursuit of relationship with humankind would create such an overwhelming response that it would climb to the top of The New York Times Best Seller List,” says Ryan Dunham, senior vice-president of sales and marketing for David C Cook. “Our hope now is that the transforming message of Crazy Love will reach even more hearts and minds through this sought-after recognition. This is our mission at David C Cook, to provide life-changing resources that reach the world over.”
Crazy Love by Francis Chan is available in trade paper and audio book. Chan is also the author of Forgotten God and the voice of BASIC DVD series from David C Cook.
