The Pursuing God

Joshua Ryan Butler
Also Available In

Is God lost?

Many of us feel that way. It's as if God's gone missing, out in the universe somewhere-and we must pick up the hunt, following any trail of breadcrumbs he may have left to go out and find him. We speak of "searching for God," "exploring spirituality," and "finding faith."



But what if we have it backward? What if God is the one pursuing us? What if our job is not to go out and find God, but simply to stop running and hiding? Not to earn God's love, but to receive it? Not to turn on the light, but to step out of the shadows?

Jesus reveals a God on the prowl, pursuing us, hunting down his world for reconciliation. And the question we're left with is not whether we've pursued hard enough, searched long enough, or jumped high enough ...

The question is, "Do we want to be found?"

Easy to read yet deep
4 stars By Tanwin, Jul 09 2016
Is this a biblical theology book? Or is it a systematic theology? Or Christian living? This book is hard to classify so I have to say yes to all of the above. 

You see, this book covers biblical theme as well as systematic theological themes. Yet its language and style is so open, inviting, and fresh like a Christian living book. So it is a deep yet easy-to-read book. Butler covers complex themes like recapitulation and impeccability in a very easy-to-understand manner.

One thing that is most helpful from this book is the analogies that Butler gives to explain the theological ideas. I know analogies in general fall short in explaining the doctrines in their fullness, but these ones are pretty much spot on!

In short, this book is NOT about our oursuit of God but it is about God and His pursuit of us

This is refreshing book. Each chapter is written only 2-4 pages so it is easy to digest. Yet the topic is gospel-centric and doctrinally sound. I highly recommend this to everyone!
