Oh Francis Chan...

Just started reading "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan these past couple weeks with my small group...and it's kicking my butt already.

Good. I've needed a good God-centered butt-kicking for awhile.

One of the many quotes that has, so far, slapped me in the face:

"The goal of American Christianity is often a nice marriage, children that don’t swear, and good church attendance. Taking the words of Christ literally and seriously is rarely considered. Most of us want a balanced life that we can control, that is safe, and that does not involve suffering."


...



Wow. Did he write this book for me?
