How to Pursue God: Our Top 10 Podcasts on Pursuing God Passionately

Dear Arena Men,

A man's greatest hunt is his great hunt for God. There's no other mountain worth summiting. There's no other trophy worth pursuing. And there's no other life worth living except the life committed to seeking the Creator of the Universe. Do you want to be a real man? Do you want to do what you were made for? Good. It starts with the passionate pursuit of God.

10 years and 500+ episodes make for a LOT of episodes full of wisdom about pursuing God passionately, so this week, we’ve decided to provide some links to our best stuff. Are you actively pursuing a relationship with the Creator who made you? Listen to these to find out where you stand.
