OK, the title of this post is purely to solicit interest. It is a play on the Charlie Chan Mystery series of the 1930’s. So far as I know Francis Chan is not hiding any secrets.
That said, many are still mystified why Chan would walk away from a successful ministry, and the newfound celebrity he was enjoying as a result of his books, in order to explore other unknown opportunities. So, at least in that sense, Francis Chan is a man of mystery.
In this video two of Chans peers, Joshua Harris & Mark Driscoll, sit down and try to get Chan to explain his somewhat unusual departure, among other issues. It is a good discussion.
