Francis Chan is a catalyst. As a pastor, speaker and writer, he focuses on igniting passionate devotion to God. This is clear in Crazy Love
, a book endorsed by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio of Passion Conferences.
While Chan does not chart new territory (he is writing the same thing we’ve heard from Tozer, Piper and others, after all), he does so with a fresh and contagious energy. One wouldn’t think it is refreshing to be reminded of something over and over; but in the face of spiritual amnesia and religiosity, Chan’s message breathes new life.
Chan’s message is simple: God is love. However, the message comes through in a passionate way.
