Crazy Love by Francis Chan

Chan calls for total commitment to Christ. "As I see it, a lukewarm Christian is an oxymoron; there's no such thing. To put it plainly, churchgoers who are 'lukewarm' are not Christians. We will not see them in heaven." (83-84)
Chan wants his readers to understand, "Jesus' call to commitment is clear: He wants all or nothing. The thought of a person calling himself a 'Christian' without being a devoted follower of Christ is absurd." (85) In this era when the definition of "Christian" is often loose and encompassing, Chan reigns in the term to a biblical understanding.
Read this book and give your heart a checkup. Be challenged to love Christ wholeheartedly.
Chan's challenge: Each person has a choice to make. You can give God your leftovers or you can serve and love God with all you are. Do you want to play it safe or do you want to plunge into devotion to Christ? The crux of the matter is how you will answer God's question: "What did you do with what I gave you?"
