Francis Chan Collection (6 vols.)

  • Format:Digital


Allow Francis Chan to take you through your journey of self-discovery into the beauty of God’s character and his plan for your life. In this collection, Francis Chan—author, speaker, teaching pastor, and founder of Eternity Bible College—presents three volumes, with companion studies, on God’s love, hell, and the Holy Spirit.

In Crazy Love, Chan takes a look at religious complacency and points out what lukewarm Christians are missing out on: God’s radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. He illustrates ways to encounter and embrace God’s love and transform your life. In Erasing Hell, Chan analyzes what Jesus and the Scriptures say about hell and eternal destiny. And in Forgotten God, Chan focuses on the Holy Spirit’s purpose and role in your life, showing how you can begin living a life led by the Spirit. Each volume comes with a companion study that further explores and provides practical application on God’s love, hell, and the Holy Spirit. These can be used as stand-alone individual or group studies.

The Logos Bible Software edition of the Francis Chan Collection is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of key biblical topics.

Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

  • Author: Francis Chan
  • Publisher: David C. Cook
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 205

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

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 something’s 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 describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

Chan writes with infectious exuberance, challenging Christians to take the Bible seriously. He describes at length the sorry state of ‘lukewarm’ Christians who strive for a life characterized by control, safety, and an absence of suffering. In stark contrast, the book offers real-life accounts of believers who have given all—time, money, health, even their lives—in obedience to Christ’s call. Chan also recounts his own attempts to live ‘crazy’ by significantly downsizing his home and giving away his resources to the poor. Earnest Christians will find valuable take-home lessons from Chan’s excellent book.

Publishers Weekly

In Francis Chan’s unique style, and with an urgency that seeks to awaken a sleeping church mired in the comfort of middle ground, Crazy Love quickly gets to the heart of the matter and leaves you wanting more . . . more of the matchless Jesus who offers radical life for all right now.

—Louie Giglio, pastor, speaker, and founder, Passion Movement

Francis’ life reflects authentic leadership tempered by a deep compassion for the lost, the last, the littlest, and the least. It’s all because this man, my friend, is an ardent and devoted disciple of his Savior. In his fresh new book, Crazy Love, Francis peels back what we think the Christian life is, and guides us down the path toward an uncommon intimacy with Jesus—an intimacy which can’t help but change the world around us!

—Joni Eareckson Tada, author, radio host, founder, Joni and Friends

In an age of religious phonies, spiritual apathy, and disheartening books suggesting that God is a delusion, Crazy Love shines like a glorious beacon of hope and light. If you’re stuck in a religious rut, read this refreshing book. I found it eye-opening and soul-thrilling. Whether in the pulpit or on the page, Francis Chan effuses love for Jesus Christ and demonstrates practical ways to throw off lukewarm Christianity and embrace full-on, passionate love for God.

Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We Made Up

  • Authors: Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle
  • Publisher: David C. Cook
  • Publication Date: 2011

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

How could a loving God send people to hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? In this groundbreaking new book, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle take on the topic of hell and our eternal destiny, with a sense of humility and a deep respect for the inspired Word of God. They will address questions such as “Will everyone be saved?” and “Does God get what he wants in the end?” as well as reviewing in depth, everything Jesus said about hell.

However, the authors warn that we have to guard ourselves against “a heartlessness” when we talk about this theology and this doctrine, because ultimately this is about people. Chan and Sprinkle lay all the evidence on the table and present all the facts from Scripture, so that people can decide what to believe for themselves.

Erasing Hell is an extraordinarily important book. Francis Chan speaks with trembling and compassion. He recognizes this debate is about God, his nature, and his authority. At stake is whether or not we will trust him. Francis lays his heart on the table; I was not only informed, but moved. It’s rare that a book mixes straight-from-the-heart talk with diligent citation of Scripture. Erasing Hell is highly readable yet goes deep and into detail exactly when it needs to. Preston Sprinkle’s research and Francis Chan’s presentation are a dynamic combination. This remarkable book embraces not what, in pride, we want to believe, but what, in humility, we must believe. My heartfelt thanks to Francis Chan for taking us to God’s Word in a Christlike spirit of grace and truth. And for calling on us not to apologize for God, but to apologize to God for presuming to be wiser and more loving than our Savior.

—Randy Alcorn, director, Eternal Perspective Ministries

It’s time for the H word. A lot of people go through hell on earth, but what if there is also a hell after earth? Hell’s stock has fallen off lately from lack of public confidence, but how can thousands, perhaps millions, reject hell as a myth and yet still believe in heaven and cherish fond hopes of going there? Surely if we hate suffering, God must hate it worse and could never have founded an institution as horrible as described in Dante’s Inferno. But the same Jesus who gave heaven a five-star rating also described an otherworldly chamber of horrors. Who goes there and why? And for how long? In Erasing Hell, my good friend Francis Chan takes a close look at some tough, frightening questions . . . and his answers may honestly surprise you!

—Joni Eareckson Tada, author, radio host, founder, Joni and Friends

Everyone needs to read Erasing Hell by Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle. Chan and Sprinkle accurately and clearly reflect the biblical teaching on heaven, hell, and eternal destiny. They provide a timely reminder that we don’t define God, but he reveals himself to us in the pages of Scripture.

Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle raise the questions we all have about this very critical topic and respond with biblical integrity and a commitment to truth, as well as incredible compassion for people. Erasing Hell is an extremely important and much-needed book.

—Dan Kimball, author and founding pastor, Vintage Faith Church, Santa Cruz, CA

Francis holds the fine line between committed biblical faithfulness and a deep compassion for people and refuses to create a false dichotomy between the two. He feels the weight and horror of the reality of hell and yet avoids the error of lapsing into mere humanism, all the while providing a well-reasoned defense for the view of Scripture on the subject. I am so thankful for this book, as will you be.

—Britt Merrick, pastor for preaching and vision, Reality, Santa Barbara, CA

Recent works by evangelicals on the postmortem future(s) of humanity have raised important questions and brought some sobering and uncomfortable issues to the fore. Chan and Sprinkle provide a remarkable service to the church by engaging these issues with courage, clarity, and grace. This book is a model of careful biblical scholarship, providing fresh light from the Jewish context of the New Testament. They also write as pastors seeking to provide wisdom for ministry, enabling the people of God to embody the love of God for the world.

Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit

  • Authors: Francis Chan and Danae Yankoski

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

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 Timothy 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 scriptural support and compelling narrative, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of 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 God desires and we desire.

Are you spiritually empty and searching for something more? Perhaps you’re missing out on God’s presence and power through the Holy Spirit. In Forgotten God, Francis Chan imparts a life-changing message on the power of the Holy Spirit and his desire to unleash himself into our daily lives.

—Craig Groeschel, founder and senior pastor,

It has often been said that the Holy Spirit is the Cinderella of the God-head. But no church and no Christian can be healthy or attain maturity without a life lived in and led by the Spirit. Francis Chan’s latest book is a timely reminder and engaging encouragement to get intimately acquainted with the forgotten God.

—Simon Ponsonby, pastor of theology, St. Aldates

In this workbook companion to Forgotten God, author Francis Chan reminds us of the true source of the church’s power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results. Offering a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives, the workbook is designed to initiate and facilitate both individual study and small group discussion, interaction, and practical application of the message of Forgotten God.

The workbook will stand-alone or can be used alongside Forgotten God. Francis’ thought-provoking teaching makes this a valuable workbook resource for individual study, a seven-week small group study, churches, youth groups, and college campus ministries—and perfect for retreat weekends.
