Blogging Book Goal- Book #25

I'm halfway through my goal of 50 books in 2009!

Yes, this means that at this rate I won't make it, but, I am hoping to read 2 books a week for the next 12 weeks and I will make it!

I read Crazy Love by Francis Chan!

I read it to be a part of Angie's and Jessica's Bloom book club.

But then, I realized I couldn't wait to read more, so I went ahead and just read the whole thing.

This book mainly discusses the "social justice," side of Christianity, encouraging us to love like Jesus did. Not just through words and peace, but through helping through giving.

Giving of our time, giving of our money, giving up our resources, and giving up more of our love.

It was such an easy read, and I came out of it really thinking over some issues. I will probably re read it in a year or so, because it is a book that challenges you in the place you are now, but will probably still challenge you as you improve through the years!

I highly recommend this book, especially if, well, you love people!

(which we all should, shouldn't we?)

I have to agree, this book is so good (though at many points I have been left saying to myself "Okay, Krislyn that's totally you .. Now what you are you going to so about that to change it .." Eye opening book, but I love it.

Have you read "Same Different Kind of Me," if you haven't that should be one of your 25 books left to read!

I read this book a few months ago and I enjoyed it. I did not think it was an easy read because it was so convicting for me, ha!
