Colorado Springs, CO—Family Christian Stores has named Crazy Love by Francis Chan Book of the Year. Released in 2008 by David C Cook, the book has now sold more than one million copies, dominating book sales in the last two years. 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 has resonated in hearts of all ages as it promises an encounter with the love of God that will be forever transformational.

“We chose Crazy Love as Book of the Year amidst so many worthy titles because we believe this book has a message we want every single one of our customers to have the chance to read,” says Tim Way, senior buyer at Family Christian Stores, Grand Rapids, Michigan. “Francis Chan’s unabashed message is life-changing.”

Beginning in January, the best-selling book will be featured in all Family Christian Store catalogs throughout 2011 and will receive front placement in stores all year long. The honor is sure to even further boost sales of Crazy Love, in addition to other books, study guides, and DVDs authored by Chan and published by David C Cook.
