What is a God Chaser?

A God chaser is an individual who 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 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 of 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 who 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.

"I must warn you, this is a dangerous book. If you are comfortable and complacent and want to stay that way, don't even open its pages!"

-Cindy Jacobs, Co-founder, Generals of Intercession

"The God Chasers is not for the fainthearted but for those who, in pursuit of God, are willing to die in the process."-Ken Gott, Revival Now!, Sunderland, United Kingdom

Review:

In an age of instant gratification and information overload, Tommy Tenney emphasises that "we like things to come quickly, easily, and cheaply--microwave revival". The God Chasers seeks to reach those who hunger for God's manifest presence and whose endurance to boldly pursue Him will lead to heartfelt revival in America's churches. Tenney, a self-proclaimed God chaser, has preached since he was 16 and has toured in mobile ministry for over 17 years in 30-plus states. Through personal accounts of the miraculous, Tenney insists that humility before and intimacy with God are the secret facets to apprehending more of God's glory. While the conservative may argue that God cannot be forced into a linear timeline, Tenney desires to "have God show up" in order to reveal new revelation so that we may be saturated with His presence, arguing that experience supersedes doctrine. If "catching" God is an impossible act, Tenney's passionate heart reveals that being caught by God, is the hope--"you're chasing the impossible, knowing it's possible...the pursuer becomes the pursued". Tenney's writing is sure to birth a new generation of God chasers, anxious to be caught by God Himself. --Jill Heatherly
