Book Description

April 1 2008
The Pursuit of God: This book is a modest attempt to aid God's hungry children so to find Him. Nothing here is new except in the sense that it is a discovery which my own heart has made of spiritual realities most delightful and wonderful to me. Others before me have gone much farther into these holy mysteries than I have done, but if my fire is not large it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at its flame.-A. W. Tozer

About the Author

A. W. Tozer (1897-1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, Bible conference speaker, and spiritual mentor. For his work, he received two honorary doctorate degrees. Among the more than 40 books that he authored, at least two are regarded as Christian classics: The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity for a deeper relationship with God. Living a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel. Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need. Tozer had seven children, six boys and one girl. He was buried in Ellet Cemetery, Akron, Ohio, with a simple epitaph marking his grave: "A. W. Tozer - A Man of God." Prayer was of vital personal importance for Tozer. His preaching as well as his writings were but extensions of his prayer life. He had the ability to make his listeners face themselves in the light of what God was saying to them. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

Grover Gardner renders Tozers classic work of man in pursuit of the Divine with empathy and sensitivity. He speaks with certitude Tozers comments on mans search for spiritual maturity and his definition of that search as man seeking an intimate relationship with his Maker. However, Tozer believes modern Christians lack the spiritual receptivity to see God in the ordinary. Tozer reminds listeners that mans emptiness and restlessness themselves are from the Divine and that peace can only be found in Him. This is an excellent book for any Christian, whether a new believer or one with a mature relationship with God.

Aiden Wilson Tozer was a man who did not have a formal theological education. However, he wrote a book that could well be a complementary reading to a systematic theology textbook, further explaining the things of God where the systematic theology text does not go into. In fact, Tozer even said that "The books on systematic theology overlook this [the things he discusses], but the wise will understand." His deep insights would definitely come from God himself, and I am humbled by the life of Tozer who takes much time in prayer, study, and seeking the mind of God. His life as described by James Synder in the forward truly depicted a man in pursuit of God. Leonard Ravenhill once said of Tozer as "Men like him are not college bred but Spirit taught."
For a book written in 1949, this man was ahead of his time, and what he wrote about is still relevant and applicable today. His writing sounds to me like that of a modern day prophet, who could see into the happenings of Christianity, to foretell and forth-tell what would be problems ahead of us, and warn us of the impending dangers if we do not get back onto the straight and narrow (Matt 7:13-14). As I read this book, I can relate it to Christianity today, the pitfalls and the dangers which Tozer had warned about more than half a century ago. There are many warnings that Tozer had put forth, and I will attempt to draw some of the lessons of Tozer to what is happening today.
Is There Food In The House?
Right from the opening of the book, the preface already sounds a rebuke to Bible teachers who do not go beyond the fundamentals to teach in and with the presence of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book March 9 2014
By Cherame
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the great reviews and I wasn't disappointed. I believe Tozer manages to gently expose the pointlessness of "religious behavior" that is enacted in a superficial, "paint-by-number" way. He offers concrete ideas as to how to develop a true relationship with God. A truly beautiful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars "My Heart Thirsts for the Living God" Jan. 5 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish every young and old(er) person who wants to be a follower of Jesus Christ
and know the living God would read this book. It is most inspiring and will show
you how to "run after God" and "drink from the River of Delight"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Gold Jan. 21 2013
By G. Lam
This book is deeply contemplated, experienced and articulated regarding the thirst for all things God.
It is profoundly refined of all dross, pure and honest. It will leave a mark on whoever reads it with an open heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pursuit of God Feb. 20 2012
By chaser
This is indeed a classic work on the status of the all New Testament church. Though the book was written in 1946, the concern of Tozer is still very evident in our times today. The church is pretty much stuck in limbo as we continue to teach the same old same old. This is largely the absence of the presence of God in the life of the children of God. Much is at stake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tozer at his best July 25 2003
This book is on my short list of all-time Christian classics. I've read several of Tozer's great books and I think that this one is his best. Tozer is concise, yet deeply penetrating. Reading the last chapter, "The Sacrament of Living," was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for me. Get this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Book That Will Make You Think March 10 2003
In The Pursuit of God, Tozer explores much of what is wrong with Christianity today. There are an abundance of Christians who don't know exactly what to do. It is not unusual for someone to came back from an altar call thinking "Now what?". This book holds that answer. Especially interesting was the very last chapter dealing with the common separation of spiritual and secular activities, in which Tozer explains that there does not have to be, indeed, should not be any distinction. All acts, whether commonly thought of as spiritual or secular, can and should be holy. These acts, executed with the proper motive will be happily accepted by God as acts of holiness, regardless of their seeming insignificance to others.
