What are you thirsty for? T.J. MacLeslie wrestles with this question on his journey from childhood faith through the wilderness and back again. Having been abused in the church, MacLeslie turned his back on God and looked for fulfillment in many places. His search led him to drink from many wells along the way, none of which quenched his thirst. All the while he was being pursued by One who loved him unconditionally. This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is an authentic story that tackles issues of abuse, addiction and personal failure. It also raises difficult questions about leadership, cross-cultural adjustment and disappointment in ministry. MacLeslie's prodigal pilgrimage serves as a cautionary tale, but ultimately a hopeful one. Pursuit of a Thirsty Fool is a book for those who thirst, those longing for more. It is a reminder of our deepest desires and the Spring where they can be satisfied. It is for those who are in need of hope. Finally, it is for those caught in the dangerous pattern of doing things for God and who may have forgotten their first call: to love God. About the Author: T.J. MacLeslie has been in Christian ministry since 1990. He has been involved in a variety of ministries, including pastoring, church planting, leadership development and spiritual direction. He currently lives in the UK with his wife and two children where he leads a team focused on prayer and spiritual formation. For more information, visit http://www.thirstyfool.com
