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 uncatchabluie 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)

A chaser is something you drink immediately after having a strong drink to rinse your mouth out. The picture of God painted by Tenny is one that is hard to swallow. Such a chaser may come in handy. Then again better theology is probably more apt. ( )

The God Chasers: "My Soul Follows Hard After Thee by Tommy Tenney (?)
  journeyguy | Apr 2, 2013 |
The book talks about a revival in the church through seeking God. Not just seeking God’s blessings (the things he can give us), but actually seeking His face. The book was written to usher in God’s presence in your life and your church family. Tenney said that the fires of revival must first ignite the church before its flames can spread to the street. God’s glory only comes when repentance and brokenness drive you to your knees, because His presence requires purity. I like this book because the author talks about changes you should make in order to have a closer relationship with God. ( )

The intentions of this book are good, but the style and writing really grated on me in places. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is dedicated to my loving family: Jeanie, my wife of over 20 years, and my three daughters, Tiffany, Natasha, and Andrea, the earthly lights of my life and inspiration of much I hear from above. Thanks for "loaning out" Dad. This book is also dedicated to God chasers everywhere - to pursuers of His presence. It is for them, the hungry, that this book was written. It could have been footnoted, annotated, and written for the analytical scholar. However, I purposely chose to write in a more conversational tone, style, and structure so that it might more easily whet the appetite, that some would "taste and see that the Lord is good."
