Are they mere cliches? Or do they point to a truth that is so profound it should be the main focus of our life?The mighty God of the universe is also your heavenly Father who loves you deeply. He understands you inside and out, and He desires for you to know Him personally, too. Author James W. Goll joyfully guides you past the cliches and into the spiritual reality of knowing God's heart through an intentional, ongoing relationship with Him.Passionate Pursuit shows you how to open your heart to encounter the living Lord. As your discovery of God unfolds, and your relationship with Him deepens, you will be surprised and delighted to hear His voice, to learn from HimAnd#8211;and to touch His heart. You will be filled with the life of God, and you will always desire to come back for more. In the process, you will gradually be transformed to become like Him and to reflect His image to others."Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." (James 4:8)

    Debs Dozen: To know God, we must understand the Trinity and know His Word.

    In these days of feel good Christianity and many churches desires to ensure the people in the pews are comfortable, James Golls book, Passionate Pursuit: Getting to Know God and His Word is as a fresh breeze. Goll wrote the book because he believes the fundamental teachings of the faith are not emphasized enough by the Church today. He feels we greatly underappreciate God, the Great I AM; the Son, the human incarnation of God; and the Spirit, the active part of God who brings us to Him. The book is divided into two sectionsthe first about the Trinityand how we know God by our understanding of the Trinity. The second section show us how to know God through His Word, the Holy Bible.

    The first section, about the Trinity, shows us how deeply God desires a relationship with us and that in turn, our greatest blessings come the more we know about God and His nature. Only if we truly understand God can we truly understand the relationship we have with Him through Jesus Christ and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. We have to be intentional about seeking to know Him more deeply. After all, God said, I AM WHO I AM. He didnt say, I am the God who was or I am the God who will be.' The more we study and learn, the more we can experience His love. Topics Goll covers in Section One are those such as God as Our Personal Father, Gods Amazing Attributes, The Messiah Has Come! and Holy Spirit, You are Welcome Here. James desire is to show us Here is the God who created the universe, and yet He is relational. He already knows you inside and out, and He wants you to know Him. He wants us all to know His heart.

    Section Two covers Knowing the Master Builder, Hungry for His Every Word, and The Uniqueness of Gods Word among others. He begins this section with this statement:

    If you want to know Gods heart, then you must know His Word, where His nature and character are revealed. The Word speaks to you directly with His voice and Gods words, as revealed in the Scriptures, are trustworthy. Gods authoritative Word is inspired by the Holy Spirit. This Word takes the warp out of our lives and sets us on the straight path. The Word is consistent and powerful, pulling down negative strongholds and making us complete in Him.

    He states that knowing God is not automatic; it is a lifelong process that required dedication to the task. It is a lost art, and I have dedicated my life to bring it back to the people of God. He encourages us to be more like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus and less like Marthawere to get out of the kitchen and into the life and love He has for us.

    If you are interested in growing deeper in your Christian walk, youll want to read Passionate Pursuit. James Goll brings to our remembrance or, perhaps, first knowledge, the Awesomeness of Almighty God and the power and privilege of His Word. Although you may find the Scriptures quoted within familiar, I trust they will also positively impact your desire to grow closer to God. I would rate this book five stars due to the importance of the Christians knowing intimately the material contained within.

    Passionate Pursuit consists of teachings about God backed up by the appropriate Scriptures. Goll told me the book came into being over twelve years of discovering God and His naturehe taught these things in a class. He is concerned the plethora of writings today are all about helping people and not about teaching them to grow in knowledge of the supernaturaltheyre more about todays culture. He feels they teach God stuff but are not about teaching God.

    In an effort to reaffirm his beliefs, he went back to look at the classics of Christian literature to see what had been said. He came under conviction that we need to center on God the Father, Jesus Christ the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit. He wants us to remember and deeply know The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are love personified. This is the Godhead.

    I asked James what he learned about himself during the writing of this book. He said he started with the goal of helping people think He says as he began to teach this class (and write the book), he had to go back and ask, What do I really believe myself? He told me the writing helped him truly anchor his own soul to the truths of God and Scripture.

    He studied at Central Missouri State and was valedictorian in 1970. He was on scholarship and enjoyed singing (bass and baritone). After a Bachelors in Social Work at Wesley Catholic Center in St, Joseph, he thought hed work in biological research. However, his uncle, a Methodist minister spent much time conversing with him. His uncle was a church person who had died to credentials before me. James said, I got saved from living a successful sinning life.

    James has written more than thirty bookslargely because books were his mentors and he wanted to be a mentor to others. He has a doctorate in Practical Ministry (2007) from and has worked for the Wagner Leadership Institute. He is the founder of the God Encounters Training E-School of the Heartwhere faith and life meet. After serving in the pastorate in the Midwest, he was thrust into the role of international itinerant teacher and trainer and has traveled extensively in over fifty nations.

    What did I learn about James from our interview? He has a great sense of humor, a wonderful speaking voice, and considers himself a hipster. He was a singer before he was a preacher and still sings every morning and evening.

    He says his greatest quest is to leave a shadow. One can only cast a shadow when standing in the light. Believe me, James Goll is standing in the light! For more information about James and his ministry, go to www.jamesgoll.com

    James W. Goll conveys deep spiritual truths with refreshing exuberance as he teaches basic tenets of the faith that would benefit new Christians as well as those more mature in the faith, who, like me, need a periodic spiritual tune-up or "fresh oil" change if you will. Divided into two parts, the author devotes the first half to demystifying the mystery of the trinity. His illustrations and examples are heartfelt and moving, particular his description of the incomprehensible love of our heavenly Father. "Be intentional about receiving God's love. Seek God. Be passionate about it," he writes in the first chapter. The second half encourages readers to passionately pursue God through the Bible: "Knowing God by Knowing God's His Word." It's filled with usable facts and incentives ("finding Jesus in every book of the Bible") and inspires me to renew a consistent daily reading plan. I was particularly intrigued with the concept/challenge to "Read Your Bible Till It Reads You" (p. 165).

    Passionate Pursuit would be an inspirational accompaniment for anyone looking to go deeper in their walk of faith and an excellent book for a Sunday School class or Bible study group.
