Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enduring Classic 27 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have known this classic for some years. It has always proved a clear and immense help in my Christian journey. I bought it as I needed a new one. People coming to it new would, in my opinion, find it a growing treasure, one of those kept on the bookshelf but taken down frequently for further reading. The Pursuit of God is not a book to skim through and think you know it. This book is for you if you really want to learn, but is not 'heavy' reading. There are more academic approaches to the subject. This is approachable and enjoyable for all of us. I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject.

One of the absolute best books I've ever read...of any genre! There are many "devotional" style books out there, but very few come close to this in either writing style, but more importantly in content. Probably the author's best work. Writes clearly, simply, and very powerfully. Best read in small chunks because even though the writing is clear, the thoughts are deep and require reflection before moving on.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 30 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The more we realise that God pursued us first the more we understand his grace knows no end and we can stop getting hung up on our failures and concentrate on running after him not letting the devil stop us through guilt or shame, just focusing on the leading of the Holy spirit and running the race

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep but wonderful 14 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have written a review on The Utter Relief of Holiness by John Eldridge (which was amazing). That book led me to this one, I can't exactly remember but I think John Eldridge quoted from it. Anyway, this is a fantastic book. It has a different angle on holiness to the other but still equally valid and helps with a different perspective. I have learnt so much from reading both of these. From them I went on to read "The Me I want to be" by John Ortberg and it is so strange how three different books can give you different views but still all be so right and valid. They have all helped in enabling me to draw closer to God and set about giving great practical ways to help get a deeper relationship with Him. Buy it you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorites 22 July 1999
By A Customer
There are not many books that are so timeless and challenging as The Pursuit of God. If you are tired of modern evangelicalism's false ideas that we can come to Christ without forsaking the world, that being a Christian means nothing more than to sidestep hell one day, this book is for you. Prepare to glow with the presence of God while you read this - we were created to know God intimately, and this book beautifully makes that known. Read it and be changed forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars The gaze of the soul 15 Mar. 2015
This is a difficult book to review, both because it's considered a classic among those in the know, and because I'm not one of them! Nor do I have any experience of the kinds described by the author, A W Tozer, sometimes regarded as an evangelical Protestant mystic. Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897-1963) was an evangelical pastor who worked with congregations in both the United States and Canada. He also wrote extensively for the magazine of his denomination, and authored several books.

“The Pursuit of God” is Tozer's short introduction to the higher Christian life of the spirit. The author is critical of the worldly and non-spiritual state of the churches, with their emphasis on doctrine over experience, preoccupation with administration and organization, commercial tendencies, and/or empty ritualism. Tozer doesn't reject the inspiration of the Bible or the necessity of sound doctrine (his denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, was theologically conservative), but he strongly emphasizes that the Bible, taken by itself, isn't “the” divine revelation, but rather one of its products, the revelation itself being God's living Voice or Word, which is forever active throughout creation. The most important tasks of Christian believers is to pursue this divine, living Voice.

Interestingly, Tozer quotes Catholic (pre-Reformation) mystics, such as Augustine, Nicholas of Cusa and the anonymous author of “The Cloud of Unknowing”. This strongly suggests that the author seeks a mystical experience of God's manifest presence. His mysticism is intensely “personal”, not impersonal, since God is a living, loving and willing person, with whom human persons can enter into intense communion.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST Reading 2 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
What a profound impact this book had and still has on me! I first read it in El-Salvador and was all but arrested by the Spirit of God has He illumined these pages to me. I have read it for many years after that time as well. This really should be in EVERY Christian's library.
