I've read most of Jud's books and they are great - but this one surpasses them all!  This book is really life-changing. The hope found in this message and the unlikely story of a prophet and a prostitute - is incredible!  If you feel like you've been chasing "something" and never catching it - it's time to realize that God is the one chasing you. He actually pursues us - no matter what we've done! Love hearing the stories of radical grace throughout this book! Get it today!

Jud provides a clear presentation of God's relentless pursuit of us; no matter what we do, no matter how far we stray, God's love for us never fails!

This book truly impacted me. God pursuing me? I must admit that is tough to get my my around. I have always felt i had to pursue God and earn his love. This book helped me understand and experience Gods love in a deeper way way.  Gotta love Jud's writing style. Hard to put down once you start.

This is my favorite of Jud's books.  The way he explains our relationship with God helped me move past a static place in my faith to a deeper relationship with God.  It is also fun, easy to read, and accessible to people at any level in their spiritual journey.  Highly recommended!!

Jud's book couldn't have come out at a better time as we struggle globally to figure out how best to show Christ's love to victims in the sex industry who have forgotten who they are. This author/pastor's heart is laid wide open as he gets to the story behind the story of a prophet marrying a prostitute to reveal God's relentless love for all the Gomers of the world. In Pursued, Jud helps each of us to remember with his creative humor and biblical truth that we have a God who longs to sweep us off our feet no matter who we are or what we have done.

Have you ever wondered just how much God really loves you? In Jud Wilhite's new book "Pursued" the answer is amazingly (and shockingly to some) beyond what most of us have ever thought. In "Pursued" Jud takes us on a page-turning journey which explores God's radical grace in the little known book of the Bible "Hosea". I couldn't put it down! To paraphrase one old pastor, "Our trouble isn't that we don't love God enough, it's the we just don't understand how much He loves us!". Read Pursued, and you'll begin to understand ... and you'll never be the same!

"I was born the running kind." ~ Johnny Cash. Once I read this quote, which Jud uses to introduce his book, Pursued, I knew that somehow God had figured me out, as he had us all figured out, for that matter. This book cuts through the chase and gets down to brass tacks, if you will, and delivers the no frills version of God's eternal love and pursuit of us. Jud perfectly illustrates what God's love looks and feels like and that it's okay to stop running...everything will be okay. I like to call it a heavenly ride through The Book of Hosea because Jud takes us on one heck of a ride through this imperfect "Love" story, which ultimately reveals God's love for his people through Hosea's faithful and everlasting love for Gomer. Jud delivers the goods about the "Truth" of God's love and brings it to life through this wonderful book. It will change your life!

An exceptional, touching, and humorous book, as we follow the journey of Hosea's love and pursuit of his unfaithful wife, Gomer, In addition, we get a glimpse of real-life stories of people who took life detours; but utilmately they follow God's direction for their lives. I wish this book had been available to me as a new Christian. However, no matter where we are on the journey, this book is a great reminder of God's will and love for us.
