From the Back Cover
If you're a hunter or a fisherman, you've been there. The moment of truth--that adrenaline-surging, heart-pounding instant when success and failure hang in the balance. In that moment, you don't know if you will experience the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.
In Pursuit was written for you. With powerful truths from Scripture and true hunting and fishing stories that capture the thrill of the great outdoors, these reflections on the active life will help prepare you for success and significance--in the field, on the water, and in your life.
"Pipher is the kind of guy I'd hang out with in the woods and follow into church--a rare combination. If you want to worship God like a man, this is a great resource!"--Rick Johnson, bestselling author of A Man in the Making and The Power of a Man
"Zeke Pipher has spent his life exploring creation [and] shares what he's experienced and learned about creation and the Creator with this book. Everyone who enjoys wild critters and places will enjoy and benefit from In Pursuit."-- Dr. Grant Woods, wildlife biologist and host of www.GrowingDeer.tv
"Zeke uses simple times in the woods to speak to issues of life and Christian maturity. This is first and foremost a book about devotion, but it sure is fun to find those lessons packaged in a format I can identify with so well."--Bill Winke, outdoor writer and host of Midwest Whitetail TV
Zeke Pipher is the author of Man on the Run and is a freelance writer whose work regularly appears in magazines such as Deer & Deer Hunting, Peterson's Bowhunting, and Bow & Arrow Hunting. Pipher is the senior pastor at Heartland Evangelical Free Church in Central City, Nebraska. He and his wife, Jamie, have three children and live on acreage a mile from the Platte River in central Nebraska, where they hike, hunt, fish, camp, and swim.

Imagine a mentor that has spent many days afield, learned many lessons by experience, filtered through the gimmicks, and understands the true essence of the pursuit or activity that you enjoy. In Pursuit is like having that mentor, but the wisdom isn't for hunting, fishing, or recreation - it's for the life that all men are called to live.
Some days I am challenged by the Scriptures and Zeke's accompanying reflections, some days I'm encouraged, and some days it's both. Zeke does a masterful job expounding on Scriptures while balancing brevity, clarity, and engaging story. I truly look forward to opening In Pursuit each morning and setting aside time to focus on the Word and my place in this world.
Honestly, I struggle with priorities as a dad, husband, business owner, outdoorsman, and friend. I think most men do. Especially men who are involved in the outdoors. We long for the adventure, solitude, and experiences that can easily draw us away from the most important things in this life. Pipher helps keep the reader grounded, speaking as though you were sharing a cup of coffee and swapping stories with an old friend.
In Pursuit challenged, encouraged, and strengthened my faith. It strikes that delicate balance of speaking as a man to men. Daily, the author is able to say the hard things, while also empowering and motivating the reader towards a life of purpose. Five Stars!
