Sometimes the voices that speak most clearly in the present are those that echo from the past. So it is in this Christian classic by the late pastor and evangelist A. W. Tozer.
Tozer brings the mystics to bear on modern spirituality, grieving the hustle and bustle and calling for a slow, steady gaze upon God. With prophetic vigor and flowing prose, he urges us to replace low thoughts of God with lofty ones, to quiet our lives so we can know Gods presence. He reminds us that life apart from God is really no life at all.
Tozer writes from his knees, a posture fit for presenting the character of God in all its demanding grandeur. "Arise, O sleeper!" is his word to us, and yet if we heed the call, we will see that to arise is not to stand, but to kneel before the God of heaven in humble contemplation. To pursue God is to know Him, and in our knowing be drawn in.
The Pursuit of God is a Christian classic about reclaiming Gods presence in a clamoring world. Bringing the mystics to bear on modern spirituality, A.W. Tozer raises high our thoughts of God, makes low our love for the world, and draws our gaze to the heights of heaven.

Tozer)June 6, 2017David BowenTerrace, BC CanadaAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Next to the Bible and the Power of the Spirit (William Law) this book by A.W. Tozer has also had a profound affect on my Christian walk. It stirred me to seek the "deeper" things of God and The Power of the Spirit showed me how to attain them through understanding of the "indwelling Spirit of Christ". Your Bible and these two books will provide you with "knowing God" more than all the theological writings from a thousand scholars that are filled with "head knowledge" but do not have Christ in their hearts and experience Him there. After almost thirty years of striving to do and studying to now I can now feel free "resting"in HIm. I wish I would have known this thirty years ago.

Rob5 Stars Out Of 5Information for the soulMarch 23, 2015RobQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Tozer writes from the heart about things of the Spirit of God. There is too little on the subject. In some aspects, he misses the mark on how the Holy Spirit operates, being influenced by his theological training. Most of his book is well-based on sound observation from his life experience in an area that is most important for the disciple. This book is a crucial addition to the library of any serious student of God. I strongly recommend it to everyone.

Kathy5 Stars Out Of 5MrsJanuary 19, 2015KathyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an excellent book that I highly recommend. Somewhat like Andrew Murray's Humility, the language is a bit archaic, but once you become familiar with the different sound, and dig into the content, it is vital and relevant. Chapter 3 is a favorite!
