Product Description

About the Author

The late Dr. A. W. Tozer was well known in evangelical circles both for his long and fruitful editorship of the Alliance Witness as well as his pastorate of one of the largest Alliance churches in the Chicago area. He came to be known as the Prophet of Today because of his penetrating books on the deeper spiritual life.

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.

Wow! So much food for spiritual thought, that I had to read it twice in a row. Through his study, and a very deep personal relationship with Christ, Tozer relates his depth of knowledge and God-given wisdom. Have purchased additional copies as gifts.

I read the second chapter, The blessedness of possessing nothing, for my bible study class. I liked the message of not letting possesions own us, but I had a few problems with some of the things Tozer wrote. Tozer said that, "The pronouns 'my' and 'mine' look innocent enough in print but... ...They are verbal symptoms of our deep disease." Those pronouns show ownership. They are a nessesary part of our language. According to the bible, it was God who introduced the concept of ownership to man in Genesis 1:28-30. It seems clear to me that many people do chase after worldly possesions but words like my and mine are not evidence of this. His statment sounds nice and spiritual but it is not true.
I also had a problem with the interpritation of the Abraham and Isaac story. Tozer charecterized the father son relationship as "perilous" and said that God had to save them from the "consequences of an uncleansed love." I have never seen any evidence of this in the scriptures. Was he making this up or did I miss something? Tozer goes on to respectfuly imagine that Abraham wrestled with his self-life in agony all night over wether or not to obey God or save his son from the alter. This may or may not have happened but God saw fit to leave it out of the scriptures if it did. Instead the passage focuses on Abraham's obedience and faith in God. Tozer also puts imagined words in God's mouth explaining the reason for the trial to Abraham, "I wanted to corect the perversoin that existed in your love." Huh??? I can't find anything that implys that in my bible.
Tozer respectfuly imagined a story to conveniently fit the point he was trying to make. I guess he wrote it on a train or something, in one sitting. It kind of reads like that. Its like one of my bad english essays that I write off the top of my head and fill with sweet smelling BS because I don't feel like doing the proper reserch.

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.

I couldn't have picked a better book by Tozer to read (this being the first book I've read by him) than THE PURSUIT OF GOD.
This chilling, touching and penetrating page-turner will have you underlining until your pen runs out. So many profound insights, I had to check the date to believe that it was really written almost 50 years ago. If only the church has listened to Tozer more carefully, then we (as the Church) would be an entirely different place.
I guarantee you, this book will not let you down. If you like Brennan Manning, C.S. Lewis and Ken Gire...then you will love Tozer's fascinating THE PURSUIT OF GOD! I read it in one night it was so good. Read it. Breathe it. Live it. Amen. :)
