To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux stated this holy paradox in a musical four-line poem that will be instantly understood by every worshipping soul:
We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still:
We drink of Thee, the Fountainhead
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill.
Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God. Let A. W. Tozer’s pursuit of God spur you also into a genuine hunger and thirst to truly know God.
About the Author
Among the more than 40 books that he authored, at least two are regarded as Christian classics: The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity of a deeper relationship with God.
Through reading this book, I have realized how important it is to pursue the Heavenly Father. A.W. Tozer paints a beautiful picture through logic and the Word of God about the importance. I definitely recommend this book as a necessity. 10/5 stars! “We have been snared in the coils of a false logic which insists that if we have found Him, we need no more seek Him.” Excerpt From: The Pursuit of God - A. W. Tozer55
My third time reading this book from my favorite author and Preacher! Always seeing something new and refreshing each time I read it. An absolute challenge for one truly and sincerely desiring to pursue God!55
