In this Christian classic, late pastor and evangelist A. W. Tozer brings the mystics to bear on modern spirituality, grieving the hustle and bustle and calling for a slow, steady gaze upon God.

He reminds us that life apart from God is really no life at all. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Tozer's bestseller, this book has been called "one of the all-time most inspirational books" by a panel of Christian magazine writers.

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 God’s 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.

    This book holds a rightful place on the list of the greatest Christian books of all time. Of the many outstanding books that A. W. Tozer wrote, The Pursuit of God is his most popular. If you have ever looked for this title in used bookstores, you probably found it terribly worn. That ragged condition would be from both use and from the inferior binding that I have noticed in many old editions. Moody has thankfully provided us here with an edition that is both economical and of a quality made to last.

    This edition has a short article called Tozers Legacy that tells us a little bit about the man and that he wrote this volume on his knees. You can tell as you read. He sees that our souls are thirsty for God and many Christians have settled for something of such lesser value.

    His first chapter on following hard after God sets the tone. For example, he said, everything is made to center upon the initial act of accepting Christ (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to our souls. He will, as you imagine, prove that our need is more of the Lord.

    In other chapters, he shows issues like being consumed with things rather than the Lord. He talks about removing the veil that we might see the Lord. He gives clues to apprehending God when he explains O taste and see. He often draws on the incredible attributes of God, something else he is famous for writing about, to show, for example, what His presence and voice means. He talks about how this leads to rest and how this becomes what he calls a sacrament of living.

    In short, this is a veritable masterpiece. Every Christian should read this book in his or her life

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    A.W. Tozer really does have a powerful way with presenting Scriptures in a convicting and personal way that I can really relate to. The Pursuit of God is no exception to this. It is full of text that will challenge you to go deeper in relationship with God. I think one of the most eye-opening chapters for me was the one entitled "The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing". It really shines the light on having things, but not possessing them. Without possessing them, we can correctly have the Lord take his place and those "things" don't get in the way. Just one amazingly enlightening portion out of many in this wonderful book. It's a must read for every believer! I received a copy of this book in exchange for this review from Moody Publishers and all opinions are my own.
