Meet the Authors
Francis Chan (born 1967) is the former founding pastor and teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California. After being raised by his Buddhist grandmother in Hong Kong, Francis came to America at the age of five. His mother, stepmother and father all tragically died before his 13th birthday. Francis came to know the Lord in high school and in 1994 he and his wife Lisa started Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley. From just 30 original attendees, Cornerstone grew to 1,600 members by 2000. Francis stepped down from his role at Cornerstone in 2010 - by which time the church had 4,000 regular attendees. He believed God was calling him and his wife to take a 'step of faith' to launch a new ministry as an extension of Cornerstone Church, in a large city in America. Since 2011, Chan has concentrated his church planting efforts on San Francisco, where he has been involved in Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, a multiethnic, non-denominational evangelical church.
At Cornerstone Francis started up diverse and influential ministries including Cornerstone Television and Eternity Bible College (from 2004). He has been a highly sought-after speaker at many Christian colleges and youth conferences in the US and internationally. His commitment is to teach directly from the Bible and his passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus.
Francis is committed to radical gospel-centred generosity in relation to his own finances. He gives away the majority of his income to charities, including the royalties from sales of his books and training resources. He is on the board of directors for Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. Francis has used astute investments in restaurants and real estate to finance his own mission outreach efforts.
Francis is the best-selling author of several books, teaching DVDs and study guides. His book Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God has topped a million sales since its release in 2009, and all the proceeds are donated to charity. With an authentic message, a radical call to true faith and a dare to fall head over heels in love with God, Crazy Love's challenge has resonated in hearts of all ages.
Francis and his wife Lisa, have seven children, and live in San Francisco.

This book is exceptional reading for any Christian either before meeting someone or during. Francis and Lisa are honest, transparent and most importantly, gospel-centred. A marriage must be built on the foundation God intended and this read intends to help us do that.
It is a great book for relationship and not an ordinary marriage advice book. Francis Chan and his wife, Lisa put this book together to share with us what the real meaning of Christian marriage. This book is not only for marriage couples but also for singles, dating couples who are preparing themselves to be married one day. Not only that, 100% of the net proceeds of this book will go toward things like helping build a village for young women rescued out of prostitution in Africa and fighting extreme poverty. Highly recommend.
This book is very distinctive from the standard marriage book. I love how it encourages couples to look heavenward. It is my go-to book to give to newlyweds and engaged couples alike. I loved listening to this in the car on the way to work.
This is a great read for all couples married, engaged or considering marriage. I love how it is distinct from other books on marriage, encouraging couples to look heavenward in their relationship. This is my go-to gift for weddings and engagements. The CD audio book is particularly appropriate for couples who struggle to find time to read.
The title of this book can certainly be misleading. When I first saw the book I was initially concerned, my theological alarm bells were ringing. However, the sub-title 'Marriage in Light of Eternity' is certainly a more fitting description. This book hardly talks about marriage, it is truly put it in its rightful place in terms of marriage being finite, just for our time on Earth. For that reason, this book is great. It is so valuable for dispelling marriage as an idol of our hearts. However, Francis definitely shares his own passionate agenda in the book, and it is fantastic and challenging, words on going and making disciples for example, but he talks a lot of things we should simply be doing because we are followers of Christ, not specific ways to how we glorify God within our marriage that are unique to marriage (as much as these things do play a part in it). I loved this book, but know that it isn't a typical marriage book, but a real getting down to the basics of the Christian faith book.
