    I started reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan and already am almost done with it, as its a very good read. Its got some overlap with Radical, but the writing style is very relatable, personable, and non-technical. Its also got some overlap with God Loves you by David Jeremiah, however the book is more Reformed Theology over that one, however the Jeremiah book is more in-depth on Gods love. Certainly a book for all Christians... If you do not have it get it! I am gonna buy more of Francis's books...

    Last year, Crazy Love, Forgotten God and Erasing Hell were all free for the Kindle so I grabbed them. Our ladies group read Crazy Love together and it was excellent. Frances is a great author and even better speaker. We saw him at Passion and I look forward to hearing him again.

    He is a rare one that can both write and preach. Some write well, but cant preach worth beans. Others can preach but cant write, etc... I wish I had a kindle but I do not so for me there is a fee. I see that his books retain their value.

    You do know that there are Kindle apps for any device out there, right? Android and iPhones, iPod Touch, PC and Mac computers, iPads, tablets - no need to have a Kindle. The apps are all free as well. My husband gets Kindle books all the time and he doesn't own a Kindle. I download books onto my son's iPod Touch so he can read as well.

    Oh I agree but if there are books you aren't sure of that are up for free for a time, it's a good way to get them and see if they are worth purchasing. :)
