Product Description

What if you could believe that God not only chases you, but that he has never left your side? Then, what if you could go a step further and accept that God's pursuit has nothing to do with your level of faithfulness? King and Martin contend that God alone carries the burden of establishing and maintaining a relationship with you. He is just as near and just as vigilant in his pursuit of you, regardless of your dedication to the spiritual disciplines and in spite of your struggle with sin. The authors emphasize, "You don't have to chase God. All you have to do is awaken to his voice." Furious Pursuit invites you to stop relying on yourself and allow God to transform the nature of your relationship with him. Stop chasing God and start embracing the pursuit that's already well under way!

Publisher's Weekly

King and Martin share common theological takes on the patterns of God's faithfulness, noting that too many Christians judge their spiritual vitality on the basis of their own strivings and successes. While Christians are commanded to seek and pursue God, the authors assert that it is God's unconditional love and passionate pursuit of his children that makes the relationship happenand endure. Cleverly, the entire text is presented as a divine romance where the writers introduce the premise of humanity being wooed by God. At this initial stage of the romance, God offers believing Christians hope and healing in exchange for fear, pain and loneliness. On the heels of this dizzying pursuit, love-struck Christians encounter the nurturing courtship stage, where individuals discover identity and meaning in life. Finally, at last, the commitment of long-term marriage is extended as God invites a lover's response of pure and permanently binding devotion. As evenly as this readable material is put forth, the book lacks emotional engagement, which weakens any impact it might have engendered had the message been offered with a livelier voice.
