Book Description

19 Nov 2010
Here is a masterly study of the inner life by a heart thirsting after God, eager to grasp at least the outskirts of His ways, the abyss of His love for sinners, and the height of His unapproachable majesty—and it was written by a busy pastor in Chicago!

5.0 out of 5 stars Written on his knees 13 Jan 2011
By John Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Though I may not agree with him in every area of his theology, Aidan W. Tozer was a remarkable man, and this is an excellent book. Literally written while Tozer was on his knees, this is a very heartfelt and Scripture-saturated plea for Christians to seek God.

Our pursuit of God does not end with our conversion. It is a life-long process for the Christian which begins with God's effectual calling (without which no one would seek Him) and carries into eternity. Tozer laments that so many Christians are content merely to have good theology, never becoming passionate worshipers of God or living lives worthy of their calling.

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the Spirit-led life, and ends with a prayer asking God to help one grow and mature in that area. Every chapter is good, but I especially liked chapters 1 (on the paradox between having "found" God and continuing to pursue Him), 6 (on God's active and present communication with us through the Spirit and the Word), and 10 (on the false dichotomy many place between the sacred and the secular).

Definitely a book that should be on everyone's must-read list. It's short, and will only take a couple hours. Those who have enjoyed recent works by current authors like Francis Chan and David Platt will recognize Tozer's influence on their writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars As the Deer 7 Mar 2011
By Philip Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
This work is nothing short of a classic. Countless readers have been moved to a greater passion for Christ and a more strong desire for the presence of God after reading this work. Tozer points the reader to many passages of Scripture, but none more poignant that that of the Psalmist who captures the picture of the believer as a thirsty deer which searches with great desire for the water necessary to sustain life. What a drastic change in life and within the church as a whole if all believers were to capture this same desire!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tozer: A Man Who Pursued God 22 May 2013
By G. Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I’ve heard A. W. Tozer quoted many times by persons I admire and respect, particularly from a spiritual standpoint. Since I hadn’t read Tozer, I decided I needed to sample his thinking and his writing. I’m glad I did.

Tozer seems to be one of those who is very intellectual but doesn’t try to pass himself off as an intellectual. So appreciated! Nonetheless, I’m grateful that he doesn’t “talk down” to the reader... that is, to treat him as if he were bereft of a lexicon. If he grasps for a word to give perfect clarity to his thought, he doesn’t hold back from using it. Again... appreciated. And his vocabulary appears to be significant.

Now, to what is important: I think I must have chosen well in The Pursuit of God. This rather short book gets right to the point in his well-chosen thoughts about the current state of modern society and its draw to modern man. So he suggests those varied ways that we can avoid the morass of the evil that pervades the culture at every turn. Succinctly, he mentions and describes the ways that each of us can focus more clearly on things of God, and how to keep Him at the forefront of our waking hours each day. All of that is to say that God, via the Christ of Calvary, MUST be the overarching focus of each of us throughout every day of our lives. He surely must have been just that for the author.

I suspect I will be reading more by A. W. Tozer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible... 6 May 2011
By spyfrom723 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A.W. Tozer was a prophet way before our time, who can really speak into the heart of Christians for today's modern present evil age. A must buy and read and re-read for years to come.
