The Awe Factor

I was just reading the review of a book Amazon recommended for me when I logged in. It's called "Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God" by Francis Chan. I don't normally take Amazon at it's word and I don't know much about Francis Chan, but this book has already caused me to worship (thank you, LOOK INSIDE! feature).

I hope I'm not breaking any copyright laws here, but I just wanted to share this with you. In the first chapter, Chan tells you to go to this site and watch the video called "The Awe Factor of God"(it's short and amazing).

This is what he writes after that... I read to the top of page 24 and I think those couple of pages sold me. It's good (and even restful and freeing!) to know we're insignificant in light of who our God is.

"Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God." -- R.C. Sproul

Great book. I'm finishing it up now. I also just read "Just Courage" by Gary Hougen which was AMAZING. Probably one of the best books I've read yet.

Thanks, Brandi! I'll check "Just Courage" out too. :)
