Christian Nonfiction. Religion & Spirituality. Nonfiction. During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940's, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit Of God. He wrote all night, the words coming to him as fast as he could put them down. When the train pulled into McAllen, the rough draft was done. Although written in such a remarkably short period of time, Tozer's passionate classic offers not only a deeper understanding of Biblical Truth, but a personal encounter with the very Source of that Truth.… (more)

A classic lived by many, but this is my first reading. I wasn't as blown away as I'd hoped. There were things I liked and some that really didn't resonate with me (probably the Arminian flavor) ( )

This was a very good book - one I'll keep on my shelf for years to come, I'm sure. The first half in particular did really increase my desire to know God more intimately.

There was one chapter that talked about the Voice of God that seemed to state that the Bible isn't the only way to hear God's voice, and I feel that many may misinterpret this to mean that they don't need to verify what they hear with the Bible and be sure that the two are aligned, since the Bible is the only revealed Word of God. Tozer clarified in a later chapter that we are to refer to the Bible, but it was brief and could be easily overlooked, especially since it was in an entirely different chapter. Certainly, God speaks with a still, small voice, in the Spirit, but if what we hear is in any way contradictory to what the Bible plainly teaches, we are not hearing the Spirit of God speaking, but an evil Spirit - the Bible teaches to discern the Spirits, and we do this with the Bible. So for that reason, I gave only four stars. Other than that one issue, this book is stellar. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
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.
Quotations
Every age has its own characteristics. Right now we are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all.
