The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer


I’ll let the publisher speak here:

The Pursuit of God is the enduring Christian classic written by renowned pastor and theologian A.W. Tozer. More than 65 years later, the words Tozer penned on a train from Illinois to Texas echo across the decades to resonate with power in the heart of anyone longing for a deeper experience with God. This devotional masterpiece is at once thought-provoking and spirit-enlivening, an invitation to think deeply about your faith even as you come alive to God’s presence surrounding, sustaining and–yes–pursuing you. ‘This book is a modest attempt,’ Tozer wrote, ‘to aid God’s children so to find Him.’ If you are hungry, The Pursuit of God will lead you to the only One who can satisfy the soul.”

This was my introduction to the works of Tozer, and it was definitely an experience. It’s an experience I believe every person who calls himself a Christian should have. Tozer holds the mirror up and challenges the beliefs you cling to so tightly, and shows how you can pursue God.

What’s amazing is that, though written more than half a century ago, his words hold true in regard to the modern church and modern believers. It’s a call back to what Christianity truly is. It’s a call to see God as He really is.
