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.
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.
