Posted from the new page under the Book link–
I am very excited about this book. This is, of course, the first in the Crazy Amazing Love series. Appropriately it focuses on God’s love. How it is there for us, how it affects us, how we in turn give it out. It’s full of stories, examples, encouragement, humor, and more. I wrote this to be an easy, fun read. But also to help people to understand God’s love and how it is awesome, powerful, and, quite honestly, a little crazy and amazing from our perspective.
It is 31 chapters long. But only 190 pages, so the chapters are pretty short. Easy for someone to read a chapter a day without too much time involved.
Here are a few quotes and the chapter/page they are found on:
Chapter 2, “Love is Set Loose”
“Put aside for a moment God’s Spirit and His Son’s physical manifestation. Love is something that shows up in dozens of ways. Between a woman and a man. Between a parent and a child. Between a dog and his master. Between a man and his burger! The term for Love is used in so many fashions and totally correct in all of them. Abuses aside.”
Chapter 8, “Reflections”
“So, we asked the question, what does Love look like? Does it look like a Christian? Does it look like a preacher? Maybe Love looks like a generous company executive? Or the teenager handing us burgers at Micky D’s? That’s just it! There are no specific ways that Love looks like when we look at a face. Love does indeed have a specific look; but recognizing it because of gender, wealth, or occupation will leave us lost. It cannot be defined in that way.”
Chapter 11, “Generosity”
““Chic flick” plots abound with both women and men fully self-absorbed and living life with no one else important to them until one day they meet the ultimate mate. Then it’s a fight all the way to the last five minutes of the 2 ½ hour movie when they finally connect. During that time, they both become transformed into someone else. The selfish life style they have been living melts away and suddenly, they would give every single thing they own to be with that one person. (This plot alone keeps the Hallmark Channel in business.) The saddest thing that could happen at that point is a sequel.”
The comedy and humor mixed in will lend to a really enjoyable read. The last section of the book focuses on the Love Chapter, 1 Corinthians 13.
Chapter 25, “The Martyr”
Page 154, 155
“We are often noticed for what we do. How we treat others. But in the end, if our foundation is not solid, strong, and genuine Love, what man sees means nothing.
“The gain (or profit) is the Kingdom. Not just where we end up at the end of our life, but where we are now. After all, the Kingdom of God is here now. If we give all we have to the poor, including our very life, we face eternity not based on what we achieved, but why we achieved it.”
My aim for this book is to first, and foremost, glorify God. I cannot write or do anything without Him personally involved. After all, as it is pointed out several times throughout the book, God is the creator of Love.
