This book is enormous fun to read. But don't be deceived, the content of the message is about as profound as anything you will come across. The generous love of the God who did not withold his own Son but gave him up for us all' needs to be reflected by an equally generous church. Most of the Christians I have met get somewhere near this but just occasionally I meet those who if they have been baptised at all seem to have been baptised in lemon-juice! This book will do us all good and will push us in the right direction. --Dr Nigel G. Wright, Principal, Spurgeon's College London
The apparently simple approach Chris has to making God's love real is of course deceptively deep. It reaches way into our humanity, touching parts of us we'd long forgotten were there. This book is, in the very best sense, a treasury of encouragement and love. --Mark Craig, BMS World Mission Director for Communications
Big Hearted challenges the reader to stop simply talking about it, to stop running away from it… and to just get on with the evangelistic task of making Jesus known! Chris & Simon do this in a warm-hearted, accessible way, with good humour and passionate conviction. Buy it for your leadership team and decide to act! --Revd Jez Brown, Regional Minister, South West Baptist Association
