Why do some believers experience genuine, life-changing, personal revival while others don't? " In The God Catchers," the sequel to the phenomenal " The God Chasers," Tommy explains the difference: "God in a sense plays hide and seek. But like a loving parent, He always makes sure He can be found by those who take the time to look." Simply put, those who earnestly seek God ...more

Inspired by small everyday life situations, this book reveals one of the basic truths about the relationship with God - He is irresistably attracted to a broken heart which has realised its own emptiness caused by His being away. Great source for learning the sensual and emotional dimensions of the deep worship which each Christian is called to live in.
The book moreover opposes the wide spread "moderate" attitudes regarding church services, gatherings and worship experience tollerated in nowaday

Already I am excited about the prospect of reading this. It seems to summarize where we have been heading as a church.

Another book that is helping me on my journey, understanding the heart of God. The basic premise advocates worship as a means to invoke the manifest presence of God. Only when we seek Him in our brokenness, our neediness, and our desperation does He come to meet with us. We need to present our emptiness to Him, individually and corporately, in order for Him to fill us with His pr

I could not help but feel frustrated whilst reading "The God Catchers". I have not read Tenney's earlier "God Chasers", but will, when I come across it.

Tenney says frustration is good. Brokeness is good. Emptiness is good. Tenney hates religion. He hates church. Why? They get in the way of his earnest seeking from religion, from church, that which it proposes to offer — that is, God. Tenney claims he has experienced, on rare occasion, the "catching of God". It is, according to Tenney, a transien

A continuation of what was started in "God Chasers". The idea being that those who passionately seek after God will find Him, because He will let Himself be found. In the same way that when you play hide-n-seek with a small child, you hide in order to be found, the author's premise is that God positions Himself to be found by us.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I've read it multiple times and each time I read it, it stirs up the hunger to do whatever it takes to continue the chase. I can't settle
