Item Description...
(When placing your order, please mention that this is a Lightining Source book.) The pursuit of pure love is on. The chase for unthinkable affection has begun. The relationship between the divine and the dishonored is being sought at all cost. The very wonderful surprise in this heavenly hunt is that it is not man doing the pursuing, but God. In this compelling book by best-selling author Scotty Smith, you will discover the fascinating and far-reaching passion that burns within the heart of God for you. Smith's own journey from a closed, unresponsive relationship style to one that knows the delight and freedom of the love of God will guide you as you break through the barriers that hinder your relationships both in heaven and on earth. Smith's insightful words will open your heart to receive a love that is unimaginable and unattainable in this world--the love of God that goes to the limit and gives all there is to pursue the objects of His affection

Publishers Description
To see our sins, wounds, idols, and failures apart from God's is simply too much. We will either minimize our condition, thus marginalizing our need of grace, or we will run away in hopeless despair to the arms of a lesser love or to the worship of lesser gods. But . . .
God pursues us in our restlessness.
receives us in our sinfulness.
holds us in our brokenness, and
frees us from our lovelessness.
-- Scotty Smith

Reviews - What do our customers think?
WOW!  Apr 13, 2007
If something just seems to be not quite right, you have an unsettled feeling about what God is up to in your life...this is a Must Read. What about that deep down gut pain- that no medicine seems to be able to reach? Scotty's story. Truly amazing.

God used Scotty's book to let me see some of my deepest hidden, yet denied pains. I can truly say this was a great instrument in God's continuing Grace to disclose and heal my brokeness. I have given this book to several of my family and friends- and they shared similar experiences with me.

Through the tears- of pain and joy... this is Good News- you will be blessed.
Refreshing, honest, powerful, and Biblical  Apr 17, 2003
For too many Christians, who take the Bible and their duties seriously, God's love is a concept that is comprehended without being apprehended. Scotty Smith's very personal account of how God moves us to a greater understanding of His great love for us is a wondeful tool for people who only know duty and doctrine in their Christian walks. But, this book is doctrine as well, in the best way! It is doctrine applied, and since all theology is practical, Scotty Smith shows how understanding and receiving God's love changed him.

Here is a sample from the introduction: "In essence, this is the story of God's pursuing and passionate mercy revealed in his Word and through his Son. It is the story of how subjects of futility and foolishness become objects of God's affection. It's about how God makes worshipers out of idolaters, a wife out of a whore." (p. 6).

Each chapter has a prayer at the end to ask God to apply some aspect of what the chapter has covered. There are some thought provoking and heart probing questions in the back of the book for each chapter, to help you apply the book to your life and walk.

Personally, I read this book when I really needed to hear its message (and the message of the Bible that it explains), and it has helped me to "have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge" (Eph. 3:18-19, NIV).

I highly recommend this book, not as some quick fix formula to "jump start" your walk, but as a starting point, on a journey to grow in your understanding of the God who has loved you with an everlasting love! Pick one up today - you won't be disappointed!

Sehnsucht  Dec 26, 2002
Like Heinz 57 on a delicious steak, this book brings godly seasoning and satisfaction to the soul.
No better subject  Dec 8, 2001
This I'm sure is an eloquent exposition of the (hesed) love of God. It burns bright with hope and fills the heart with astounding encouragement. There's no better subject than the love of God properly propounded and proclaimed.
Light My Fire!  Dec 3, 2001
This is a book I want to read and maybe reread.
Light My Fire with your love, Lord! Light me up!
Scotty is a godly man and pastor on fire with the love of God.
I have a friend who is into "chasing God" but Scotty shows through his preaching and writing that God is the Chaser and we must allow ourselves to be caught by his love seen in the finished work of Christ.
