Publisher's Summary

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite.

Audible Editor Reviews

In a sense, Christian pastor Aiden Wilson Tozer wrote The Pursuit of God (1948) to pick up where the Bible left off. In this audiobook Tozer aims to teach faithful listeners the "art of worship". In a performance that evokes the friendly, heartfelt voice of a great pastor, Mark Moseley serves up spiritual guidance for Christians who seek to become more devout and to develop a closer, more personal relationship with God. According to Tozer, "man must pursue God", and Moseley's sincere performance inspires listeners to do so. Perhaps one does not always need to visit a church to find a spiritual mentor.

A Mature Theology

Much like Bonhoeffer, Tozer's theology is not one of hockus-pockus, miracles, magical rescues or voices in the night, promises of heavenly rewards or threats of punishments and damnation, not one of picnics, "pastor appreciation" dinners, or easter egg hunts, but rather a deep and abiding yearning for the everlasting goodness that is God--and again, not a longing borne of a seeking after the comforts of heaven or the avoidance of hell (a "cheap grace" as Bonhoeffer would say), but rather the full and complete wedding of oneself to the goodness of God and a willingness to suffer for that goodness and godliness- because one loves goodness and Godness and not for any other reason than that. In a world of shallow organized religion which never gets beyond the doling out of loaves and fishes (or donuts and coffee), this is a refreshing revisiting of a true spirituality--a love of God, because one loves the attributes of God--and for no other reason than that.

Profound

I dearly love this book and recommend it far above most other books. It is a book of profound wisdom written by a man whose life was dedicated to the humble pursuit of God.

There are only a few books that I make a habit of reading/listening to at least once every year, and this is among that selection of books.
