The Sacred Chase by Heath Adamson {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 




There is nothing more important in this life or the one to come than an intimate connection with Jesus. Unfortunately, we have thousands of voices distracting us, and all too often we listen to them. We confuse proximity to God with intimacy with God and are content with a Christian-branded life yet miss out on what we were created for: knowing God intimately.

Sharing the touching story of a demon-possessed man who had every reason to run the other way when he encountered Jesus, Heath Adamson shows us how spiritual hunger can overcome our hopelessness, our shame, and our excuses. He encourages us to pursue God regardless of where we've been or where we are, seeing our salvation as a doorway. Once we walk through it, we can discover the love of God in a tangible way.

This book is for anyone who longs for a deeper connection to God, who has felt far from peace and hope, and who needs the assurance that God is both interested in who they are and accepts them.


Heath Adamson (PhD, University of London) is the author of Grace in the Valley. His life was changed dramatically when, at the age of seventeen, he was rescued out of a life steeped in drug abuse and the occult. Now a sought-after speaker at conferences, seminars, universities, and churches, Adamson seeks to bring audiences from simply knowing information about God to actually experiencing God in life-changing ways. Together with his wife, Ali, and their two daughters, Leighton and Dallon, he believes you are God's favorite place to be.


If you're looking for a book to pick up just for some light pleasure reading... well, this probably isn't it. It's not a book that one is going to read just for fun, but rather a book that many can learn from. Still, that's not to say there aren't some rather entertaining moments too. In fact, right from the intro there was a story about a prank that had me chuckling as I read...and served as a great analogy for the topic of this book, The Sacred Chase.

This is a book that encourages readers to seek God with their whole hearts, mixed with personal stories and Biblical references to give a better understanding of this message. It's not a super long read, though it is one that will make you want to stop and think about what you've read as well. If you've struggled with what it means to have a close, intimate relationship with God and find yourself feeling as though you're constantly chasing after Him, this might just be the book for you to check out!
