The author shares her story, written in a very casual, conversational style.

The overall concept of this book is one of those things that sounds just like it should be common sense but at the same time you read it; it’s like a huge revelation!

I so wanted to like this book. I think that a different reader would enjoy it much more than I did. The topic was great, the points the author brought up were interesting, and I overall enjoyed what she wrote about. I also enjoyed that she was real and engaging and wrote in a seemingly very honest and transparent way. This is one of the many books by young authors that are so helpful in understanding grace as applied to our daily walks with the Lord.

However, I had trouble with her writing style--so much trouble that it was very distracting. She writes in a conversational and rambling style and jumps around from her subject to ideas that seem to occur randomly to her from her past that she then relates to the topic. It made me anxious and I found myself reading too quickly to get through it in order to finish the book. I knew that I wanted to get her points and kind of glossed over parts of her musings because I just wanted the book to be over. She uses a lot of sarcasm that seems out of place in this sort of a book. I was confused and it tired me.

However, to be fair, I can tell from many of the other reviewers that they greatly appreciated not only her message but her writing style too. I think that many people could probably related to her. As a reader you know yourself, and if this sort of thing appeals to you, I don't think you'll be disappointed in her subject matter.

Recommended only if you like this style of writing.

This is an amazing book. When we think we have everything figured out, we realize that we really do not know Him. And Angie open our eyes for that fact, using a very colloquial language, very simple and easy to understand. She proves to us that we are using the wrong approach to reach God. Many different aspects touched me deeply in this book, while I was reading it. The more we want to be close to God, the more we chase Him and the more we get frustrated for not sensing that communion we seek. But as she stated clearly, "we can't comprehend the truth in all it's wild simplicity, so we create a version of Christianity that appeals more to our sensibilities". How deep this sentence goes. Like herself, I am also a very intuitive person, so I have exactly the same feeling that I did not try hard enough to achieve my intimacy with God. And the capstone came in the form "When we spend more of our time searching for assurance than we do acting out of belief, we are chasing God". How true that thought is! So I start having the feeling that the author had some points on her assessments, and I was identifying myself very much with her thoughts. And when she gave suggestions on how not to chase God, I was devouring the book like it was my last supper. "Don't wait for the miracle you think will make it clear. Confess your belief and then act out of that determination". And every page I turned I read more advises that at the end I was astonished on how far away I was on my approach to know God.
If you really want to know your God, I recommend you read this book on how to reach him and not incur in the same mistakes I did. Like the author, "I don't want to run anymore. I want to kneel".

This was the first book I read of Angie Smith and I didn't know about her husband's band, but the cover and concept of the book struck me, expecially after reading a wonderful spiritual novel about finding God "Now and at the Hour of Our Death". I so want to find God and I can totally relate to Angie in her search that I go after Him and try to find Him where we want Him in the way we want to find Him. It's a controlling attitude and one that doesn't lend well to a genuine relationship with Him.

It's kinda like relationships. When girls go chasing boys, they try to put them into little boxes and it doesn't work. They don't want to be put into boxes, they want to be themselves and save us (see the parallel??)

You get to know Angie well in reading this (her character flaws and self-doubts she had during her journey) and it's wonderful. This is a really a warm and personal book that will inspire and hopefully motivate you like it did me.

We need to stop CHASING God and start letting Him come to us. He's much better at it than we are!

I have to admit, I had a really hard time understanding the whole concept of "chasing God" and why that was bad thing before I read this book. After reading it, however, I *get it.* Angie uses examples from her own life that are both funny and deep to relay her message. I love the way she breaks the Bible down into chunks that make sense. What I appreciate most is that Angie doesn't come across as telling people what to do and failing to see her own sins - she points out her own struggles, which makes this an especially relatable book. Throughout the pages, Angie incorporates Scripture as well as other ideas from great theologians, which makes me feel good knowing that she spent time researching what she was writing. I'd love to see a Bible study version of this book!
