Furious Pursuit: Why God Will Never Let You Go

9781400071494You’re not defined by what you’ve done.
You’re defined by Who pursues you.

What if you could believe that God not only chases you, but has yet to leave your side for a second, has yet to go a minute without courting you, whispering in your heart, I’m right here? What if you could believe that God is never distant, never out of reach, never indifferent to what’s going on in your life? Would that make a difference in your relationship with him?

“These days, I’m more inclined to think God’s anthropology–what God thinks about us–packs more heft and punch than our theology–what we think about God. Tim King and Frank Martin seem to think so too, and have written a book that draws us into the wideness and deepness of God’s heart, showing us His fierce and tender affection even for sinners like me. King and Martin remind us that the good news has nothing to do with how good we are, only how loved.”
– Mark Buchanan, author of The Rest of God and The Holy Wild

“The message of this book can’t be stated often enough: God loves us. Oh yes, he does. Furious Pursuit shows us that God’s love is active and vibrant and on the chase for you and me. Others have said this before, but Furious Pursuit takes us one step further.”
–Scot McKnight, author of The Jesus Creed and Embracing Grace

“If you’re sick and tired of spiritual to-do lists, religious shoulds and oughts, and the self-hatred that comes from feeling unacceptable, you’ll find in Furious Pursuit better news of a better story. Tim King and Frank Martin have given us powerful truth, well-told.”
–Brian McLaren, pastor, author of A New Kind of Christian and The Secret Message of Jesus

Go deep into the things of God by allowing God to go deep into the things of your life!

In your relationship with God, there is a romance to be embraced, a courtship to be nurtured, and a marriage to be consummated. And this relationship demands a level of intentionality.

·God’s quest for a willing heart
·Navigating the “thorn stories” of pain, loneliness, and rejection
·Embracing the vows of a Sacred Lover
·Accepting God’s Divine Proposal
·Recovering the Larger Story of God’s unrelenting faithfulness

Take advantage of the life-changing tools and resources, including questions for individual and group study, a daily Conversations & Reflections Journal. Let God take responsibility for your relationship with him, so you can experience the freedom and acceptance that are already yours. Frank Martin and Tim King invite you on a journey of personal and spiritual transformation, a journey toward fully embracing the Furious Pursuit of God!
