Crazy Love by Francis Chan
The goals of American Christianity are often a nice marriage, children who dont swear, and good church attendance. Taking the words of Christ literally and seriously is rarely considered. Thats for the radicals who are unbalanced and who go overboard. Most of us want a balanced life that we can control, that is safe, and that does not involve suffering.
In the Name of Jesus by Henri Nouwen
What makes the temptation of power so seemingly irresistible? Maybe it is that power offers an easy substitute for the hard task of love. It seems easier to be God than to love God, easier to control people than to love people, easier to own life than to love life.
