About this title
Synopsis:Bestselling Author Reveals God’s Heartfor OutsidersEveryone feels like an outsider sometimes. Acclaimed bestselling author Ken Gire lets readers know that they are not alone. He brings them directly into the action of Scripture, telling the stories of foreigners, lepers, prostitutes, and other “outcasts” who found acceptance with God. Alongside the Bible stories, he blends contemporary examples and spiritual insights to paint a picture of a God who relentlessly pursues each of us. Discussion questions are included for individual or small group use.
From the Back Cover: The Marginalized and the Ostracized; the Sinner and the Loner; You, Me…and Jesus
We’re all outsiders sometimes. Each of us has felt lonely in a crowd, or been passed over for a job opportunity, or been squeezed out by “friends.” We’ve all spent time on the outside looking in. But take heart–Jesus will leave the ninety-nine just for you.
Bestselling author Ken Gire weaves together stories from the Bible, history, and his own life to create a soul-lifting picture of a God who relentlessly pursues the outcast and disenfranchised–a God who became an outcast himself to bring his lost ones home. Let your eyes be opened to the one who will never fail to find you and embrace you as his child.
Discussion questions are included for individual or group use.
“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…. 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.” –Jean Breunle, Charisma magazine
