The marginalized and the ostracized; the sinner and the loner; you, me... and Jesus. We're all outsiders sometimes. Each of us has felt lonely in a crowd, or been passed over for a job opportunity, or been squeezed out by "friends." We've all spent time on the outside looking in. But take heart—Jesus will leave the ninety-nine just for you. Bestselling author Ken Gire weaves together stories from the Bible, history, and his own life to create a soul-lifting picture of a God who relentlessly pursues the outcast and disenfranchised—a God who became an outcast himself to bring his lost ones home. Let your eyes be opened to the one who will never fail to find you and embrace you as his child.

In the middle of all of the other pursuit stories Gire weaves a tale of his own conversion to becoming a christian and pursuit story.
I found the book to have some excellent points, and to paint a vivid picture of how clearly God pursues us, and at the same time, there were large sections I had trouble tracking the author through. I didn't always find that all the life examples he presented were in sync with the final point for each chapter.
I did appreciate that each chapter ended with some very thought provoking discussion questions, and also that Gire included so much scripture with references in each chapter.
I would suggest this book as something to consider reading if you are wondering about whether or not God has every tried to pursue relationship with you. I would also suggest reading it if you need a reminder or encouragement that our relationship with God is uniquely ours.
