Crazy Love by Francis Chan

This is a book that I highly recommend.

Francis Chan explores the relentless pursuit of God for us because He loves us, and that He is love. Here is a Scripture definition of what love is.

Love is patient.
Love is kind. 
It does not envy. 
It does not boast. 
It is not proud.
It is not rude. 
It is not self-seeking. 
It is not easily angered. 
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, 
always trusts, 
always hopes, 
always perseveres. 
Love never fails.
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8) 

It's easy to forget that God's love for us is what sustains us. And we love God because He first loved us (1 John 4:19).

Here's a book description:

Book Description

May 1, 2008
God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe--the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor--loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not...we all know somethings wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts--it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis Chan describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.
