Item description for The God Chasers: "My Soul Follows Hard After Thee" (God Chasers) by Tommy Tenney...
Overview What is a God chaser?
A God chaser is an individual whose hunger exceeds his reach.
A God chaser is a person whose passion for God's presence presses him to chase the impossible in hopes that the uncatchable might catch him. A child chases a loving parent until, suddenly, the strong arms of the father enfold the chaser. The pursuer becomes the captive; the pursued the captor. Paul put it this way: ¿I chase after that I may catch that which has apprehended me¿ (Phil. 3:12).
Job was a God chaser. He said, ¿Oh, that I knew where I might find Him!¿ David was one; he said, ¿My soul followeth hard after Thee.¿ Paul was one too: ¿That I may know Him...¿ The passionate paths of God chasers can be traced across the pages history from Moses the stutterer, David the singer, and Paul the itinerant preacher, to contemporaries like A.W. Tozer, Leonard Ravenhill, and countless others who share one common bond: an insatiable hunger to know their Lord. These are people whose relentless, passionate pursuit of Christ often made them appear foolish in the eyes of others. Yet, having tasted His goodness and glimpsed the invisible, they could be satisfied with nothing less.
Add your name to the list...become a God chaser. Who knows? You might be one whom He catches.
Publishers Description There are those so hungry, so desperate for His presence, that they become consumed with finding Him. Their longing for Him moves them to do what they would otherwise never do: Chase God. But what does it really mean to chase God? Can He be "caught"? Is there an end to the thirsting of man's soul for Him?
Meet Tommy Tenney -- God chaser. Join him in his search for God. Follow him as he ignores the maze of religious tradition and finds himself, not chasing God, but to his utter amazement, caught by the One he had chased.

Perfectly Describes What Is Missing In Christians And The Church Today! Mar 22, 2007
I agree with his statement "there is as much of God in most bars as there is in most churches". Most church services are all about pleasing man,not God,today. The first chapter has a "bowl you over" example of what church would and should be like if God was truly present in your service,and also shows how it is God who brings revival,not man's planned program and advertising.It is also God who brings the people in. Every pastor needs to read this book!
I could not give it 5 stars because I do not agree with a few things. The woman with the Alabaster box who annoited Jesus and washed His feet with her hair is never identified in scripture,period,certainly not as Mary Magdalene,nor are her sins,and Mary Magdalene was delivered of 7 demons,nowhere in scripture,is it ever said that she was a prostitute(as he claims)! (another gripe I have about the Passion film)
I do agree with the author's view on how a Christian who truly wants the kind of relationship with God that is possible, and that He desires from us,must be willing to deny "self". Very inspiring for your Christian walk,if your heart truly desires for you to climb into your heavenly father's lap.
Great Dec 19, 2006
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who is hungry for something more than the usual "church fare".
Hunger Nov 14, 2006
This is a book you should read when you get tired of fooling around and you have a hunger for God so insatiable that it drives you crazy. If you want to be a true christian here's how. It's not going to be easy but it will be worth it in the end I promise.
A MUST READ BOOK Oct 7, 2006
I bought & read this book & totally loved it. It really has you wanting to be closer to God. Tommy Tenney is an amazing author & spiritual man.
God Chasers group teaching Sep 27, 2006
This is a terrific book to teach believers how to pursue the Lord and what it takes to reach each level the Lord wants us to attain. We will be under construction, by the Master Builder, all the way to the gate, but the Lord is never stagnant and has created us to fellowship with Him, we can be more than we think...we must believe Him!! Our group is studying this book, one chapter at a time, over a 10 session time frame. I appreciate Tommy Tenney's continual pointing back to the Word, because that's number one in our pursuit of the Lord's face. Our group's theme is to seek, see, and touch the face of God and to not be satisfied with anything less. Thank you for reading this.
