Publisher's Summary

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, the depth, clarity and completeness of Tozer's message has made The Pursuit of God an enduring favorite.

An Outstanding Book in a Useful Form -Audible vers

Would you listen to Pursuit of God again? Why?

Absolutely. It's precisely because I intend to listen to it over and over again. The insight, passion, and clarity of A.W. Tozer are too often missing in our day. As he says in the book, "Between the scribe who has read and the prophet who has seen there is a difference as wide as the sea. We are today overrun with orthodox scribes, but the prophets, where are they? The hard voice of the scribe sounds over evangelicalism, but the Church waits for the tender voice of the saint who has penetrated the veil and has gazed with inward eye upon the Wonder that is God." Tozer's is such a voice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'm going to go with God on this one. :-)

Seriously, it's not that kind of book. This is not a story; Tozer is describing the movements of the spiritual life.

What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He reads well, but he's not the attraction here.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I like to listen to it in sections and spend time reflecting on them and responding to God in prayer.

Any additional comments?

I don't know if there's a way to do so easily, but it would be very helpful to have the 'chapters' actually match the chapter divisions in the book. I've enjoyed Audible so far, but I do find it unnecessarily confusing to navigate, especially in books that are segmented into multiple 'parts' (e.g. the New American Standard Bible is a great gift, but troublesome to actually use).
