The Sacred Chase (Book Review)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          In a day and age where it's hard to connect with one another, much less be inseparable and confidential, Heath Adamson has done a really great job with this book The Sacred Chase. The definition for intimate means "marked by a warm friendship developing through long association; suggesting informal warmth or privacy." Jesus said to the disciples, "No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, because everything I have learned from My Father I have made known to you" (John 15:15, Berean Study).

          All of us in our walk with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, should desire to have that same walk as did Abraham, Jacob and Isaac. That's how Christ compares our walk with Him: for Him to share Himself and His plans toward us. Each of us is responsible for our faith in this life. The reason I believe Heath has done a wonderful job in this is that if we so desire a rich and astounding relationship with the One who calls us, we are called to chase after Him with all of who we are. As scripture says, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Matthew 22:37-40, New King James).

          Overall I find this a very interesting and wonderful book Heath has written and I would say that it behooves each and all to pick up a copy. If you desire more out of your walk with the Lord, Heath has a lot to say along with scripture to keep on running for the prize that is set before us. With that being said I received a complimentary copy of this book from Baker Books to give a fair and honest review.
