The Pursuit of God – A Short Review

This was my first experience with Tozer, and I’m very grateful for it. A.W. Tozer writes as a man passionate about his God. Tozer was indeed in pursuit of God, and his desire for his reader to join him on his journey is infectious. I don’t agree with everything Tozer writes, but the overall message of the book is outstanding. In a world in which so many Christians are simply trying to learn more about God, or simply attempting to rest in their intellectual knowledge of God, Tozer preaches the importance of actually knowing God…of actually experiencing God. This statement I’m sure raises the eyebrows of some, but I think seeking to experience God is a fundamental part of the walk of faith that so many of us are missing, much to our own detriment. I heartily recommend this book, and can’t wait to read more of Mr. Tozer’s work.

  1. I appreciate this book so much. Some of my favorite gems from it:

    “To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religionist, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.”

    “[F]or millions of Christians…God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian. They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle.”

    “The meek man cares not at all who is greater than he, for he has long ago decided that the esteem of the world is not worth the effort…He knows well that the world will never see him as God sees him and he has stopped caring.”

    “The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the soul of the redeemed man is the throbbing heart of New Testament religion.”
