Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In an age of instant gratification and information overload, Tommy Tenney emphasizes that "we like things to come quickly, easily, and cheaply--microwave revival." The God Chasers seeks to reach those who hunger for God's manifest presence and whose endurance to boldly pursue Him will lead to heartfelt revival in America's churches. Tenney, a self-proclaimed God chaser, has preached since he was 16 and has toured in a mobile ministry for over 17 years in 30-plus states. Through personal accounts of the miraculous, Tenney insists that humility before and intimacy with God are the secret facets to apprehending more of God's glory. While the conservative may argue that God cannot be forced into a linear timeline, Tenney desires to "have God show up" in order to reveal new revelations so that we may be saturated with His presence, arguing that experience supercedes doctrine. If catching God is an impossible act, Tenney's passionate heart reveals that being caught by God is the hope--"you're chasing the impossible, knowing it's possible...the pursuer becomes the pursued." Tenney's writing is sure to birth a new generation of God chasers, anxious to be caught by God Himself. --Jill Heatherly

"I must warn you, this is a dangerous book. If you are comfortable and complacent and want to stay that way, don't even open it's pages!" -- Cindy Jacobs, Co-founder, Generals of Intercession

I had to take a few minutes just to let all who are out there in search of a real relationship with God that this book is a must read! I thank God for giving Tommy Tenney the vision and inspiration to write this book. There are times I was weeping while reading because I couldn't believe that someone was finally able to put on paper what I've been feeling in my spirit so long. If you're tired of complacency and mediocrity in the body of Christ...this is the book for you. I think everyone who professes to be a Christian should read this book and put it into practice. I'm starting the chase...will you?

One of the greatest books I have read in the past 20 years. Tommy Tenney has captured the essence of what it means to truly chase after God. He explains that we can no longer be a gimme, gimme bunch of Christians running around asking what is God going to do for us. In the Last Days we have to die to self if we are to ever receive His Presence in our lives, families, churches and cities. Please read this book and then study it with someone who REALLY wants to know the heart of God. Excellent Old AND New Testament Bible study material of the symbolism God presents to us in His Word.

Format: Paperback
Several friends of mine had read THE GOD CHASERS and received a great deal out of it. However, I also knew several people who read the book and did not enjoy it all. I didn't know exactly what to expect and began reading this book with an open heart and an open mind. The book contains a powerful message about being broken and putting God first in our lives, so much so that we become a God-chaser instead of just being chased by God. The stress on brokeness is a message that the Church tends either to avoid nowdays or gloss over with a bunch of warm-fuzzy Christianity. As much as God is the loving, humble servant, God is also a fierce and mighty warrior. This is a lesson well worth remembering.
Nevertheless, this book is not for everyone. The author makes that clear in his introduction. Not everyone will find the book interesting. Of course, it doesn't help that the author repeats himself in just about every chapter. Still, in this user-friendly world of ours we tend to forget how powerful and awesome God truly is. Anything that reminds us of that power is worth noticing.

The God Chaser is a must read book for anyone who has longed to have a relationship with God. It bypasses all the usual religious traditions that most of us have been taught and gets straight to the heart of the matter, God. This book is hard to put into words what it will give you but I gaurantee that after reading it, you will never be the same agan. You will have a thirst and a hunger to be with and know God.

This book should come with a warning label, "Your life will be significantly changed by the time you finish this book". Never have I read a book that has so thoroughly fed me spiritually, but also leaves me ever so hungry for Him. Besides the Bible, this book should be must reading for all serious Christians who want more of the Lord and less of religion.

Oh dear. How disappointing it is to read a book that somewhat challenges you, only to later see the Author at a conference and quickly realise he is nothing but hype. Tommy, you disappoint me. I request that you please stop quoting Tozer as if you share any commonality in thought or theology. Tozers preaches a changed LIFESTYLE, not mere excitement and experience. Dear reader, if you're a Pentecostal (as I am), and simply want to find the 3 step guide to this or the 4 S's to this, or perhaps you want to find the right "Praise-Phrase" to unlock God's power (unbelievable), then this book is probably right up your alley. If on the other hand you want to hear from a man that truly is a God Chaser, forget Tommy's revenue raising, Tozer quoting books, and go directly to the quoted, AW Tozer's, The Pursuit of God. After re-reading the God Chasers since seeing Tommy live, I saw through the well polished stories designed to excite you, but hardly challenge you or bring about real change in the reader. As Tommy says at the end of Chapter 1, "Éyou are barely holding back the tears nowÉ", what emotional drivel. It's not (just) about feeling or emotions, or even tears Tommy, it's about the stuff Tozer speaks of, a changed man, a lifestyle that hungers and thirst's for the face, for the glory of His face. Before you challenge my boldness, PLEASE go and see a Tommy T conference and see for yourself, "for many shall come in that dayÉ".

I was going to give this book two stars and then I decided on just one because, apart from all the theological and, in my opinion, unbiblical issues in the book, it is just written incredibly badly. I have only read to chapter 4 so far ... .I have no dispute with the basic concept of the book, which is that only those who really hunger after God with a single minded focus that brings constant repentance, humbleness and brokenness can achieve intimacy with God. However, that is not a particularly new or groundbreaking concept and Tenney's expansion on that concept has some serious problems.
The writing style is incredibly repetitive and the logic is downright circular. Stories are told which have no relation to the previous point made or the point to be made or to the section title. And the anecdotal stories end up all being essentially the same and not particularly inspiring at that. As commented by previous reviewers, he also does tend to use verses out of context and I sometimes don't see how the verse is linked to the point he wants to make. Moreover, he frequently makes these very extreme, exaggerated statements; for example, our flesh stinking to God.
All that aside, it is chapter 4 that really got to me. In that chapter, repentance for specific sins, repentance that leads to salvation, intercessory prayer for the repentance/salvation of people/cities and transformation to Christ's image (although he never actually mentions Christ) that comes from abiding in Him and His word are all mixed up together and intertwined as if they were one thing and interchangeable. In the chapter, he constantly talks about our need to die before we can see God, based on the fact that when Moses asked to see God's glory, God told him that no one could see Him and live.
