Powerful. When is the last time someone used that word to describe you? It doesn?t make sense that Almighty God would have children characterized by fear and insecurity. He put His Spirit in us so we could be known for our power (Acts 1:8; 2 Tim. 1:7). Sadly, most believers and churches are known for talent or intellect rather than supernatural power. What?s worse is that we?re okay with it. Could it be that we?ve forgotten the One who distinguishes us from every religion and cult in the world? Through solid scriptural support and compelling narrative, breakthrough author Francis Chan returns us to the Holy Spirit as the Bible describes Him. He reminds us that we were not created and saved merely to survive our time on earth. Chan contends that we?ve ignored the Spirit and are reaping the disastrous results. It?s time for the beloved church of Jesus Christ to reverse the trend of neglect. Let?s pursue the Spirit-filled life of effectiveness.
Francis Chan?s home base is Simi Valley, CA, where he serves as head pastor of Cornerstone Community Church. He has been married to Lisa for 13 years, and together they are raising their 4 beautiful children. Chan has a BA in youth ministry (The Master?s College) and an MDiv (The Master?s Seminary). He was in youth ministry for 6 years and has been a senior pastor for 14. In 1994 he started Cornerstone Community Church, and the church has since established 8 additional church-plants. Through Cornerstone, Chanalso founded Eternity Bible College in 2004, where he teachers and serves as chancellor. Chan?s heart for people is evident through his involvement on the boards of World Impact and Children?s Hunger Fund. He travels extensively on missions trips to places like El Salvador, Japan and Africa in order to see the needs first-hand and to generate love and support for the people there. Chan says the blessing extends beyond the people groups they serve ?it also blesses his church in Simi Valley when they come together to focus on helping others. A popular teacher and speaker, Chan addresses thousands of people annually, both in the U.S. and internationally. His passionate, honest, and unabashed speaking style imprints the truth he shares on his listeners. Typical venues include college chapels, pastors? conferences and youth conferences such as Passion, churches, and high school retreats. Crazy Love is Chan?s first book, and his unique and fervent voice comes through in each page. Crazy Love has now sold over 100,000 copies. Forgotten God will be Francis?s second book.
