Relentless Pursuit

Relentless Pursuit
Ken Gire

Ken Gire

(Bethany House Publishers)

Using the parable of the lost sheep as the primary example of God’s relentless love, Ken Gire masterfully weaves Scripture with personal stories to prove how outsiders such as prostitutes, lepers and adulterers found acceptance with God. 

A writer’s writer, Gire once again delivers eloquent insight—this time on how those who have been cast aside by others are the very ones God fervently pursues. The Father loves each of His children, though many don’t know Him and push Him away again and again. Yet those are the ones, Gire says, that God chases—the afflicted and addicted, the selfish, and the spiritually and physically broken—and deems worthy of saving grace.

Drawing from past and present works—and his own vulnerable reflections—Gire reveals a new understanding as to why people from all circumstances can feel like outsiders. Regardless of our outward appearance, we can all struggle with feelings of emptiness and unworthiness. And to that degree, Gire refuses to sugarcoat the hurt while providing a sincere, thought-provoking perspective. 

Relentless Pursuit also offers encouragement and hope for those who feel unaccepted or out of place in today’s social norms. Whether read on your own or in a Bible study or home group, the wisdom and inspiration in these pages made this a worthwhile read.
