This was one of those books that makes me hunger and thirst for more of God. I read it after reading "50 Characters Every Christian Should Know". The content was outstanding and prayer provoking. I would strongly recommend to a first time reader to acquire a printed version. The EBook allowed me the ability to save snippets and quotes and I have saved many. However, the source I acquired it from apparently made a dozen or more word errors in the OCR process. This at first appeared to me to be a manuscript error but as I reached the very last page it became obvious to me that it was a publication copy error. How can I complain when it was offered to me at no charge by the publisher,
However, it gets to you. I pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to you through it as abundantly as he does to me. ( )

You can read my full review at Quieted Waters.

Where I praise J. I. Packer's Knowing God for its depth, clarity, and inspiration, I enjoyed A. W. Tozer's The Pursuit of God for its depth of passion that emphasizes the joy of seeking God Himself. Tozer writes from a charismatic background, and his enthusiastic love for God fills these pages. ( )

Perhaps the best book of its genre that I have ever read! If you are a Believer, Tozar cuts to the chase as to the what, why, and how of your relationship with God. This book is not a one-time read, but instead should be treated and read at least monthly as a foundational reminder and how-to of the beauty of a personal relationship with God. Warning: This book will change your life! ( )

First words
My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. - Psalm 63:8
Christian theology teaches the doctrine of prevenient grace, which, briefly stated, means that before a man can seek God, God must first have sought the man.
