The Pursuit of God

The Pursuit of God Summary

As the heart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. " This thirst for an intimate relationship with God, claims A. W. Tozer, is not for a select few, but should be the experience of every follower of Christ. But, he asserts, it is all too rare when believers have become conditioned by tradition to accept standards of mediocrity, and the church struggles with formality and worldliness. Using examples from Scripture and from the lives of saints who lived with this thirst for God, Tozer sheds light on the path to a closer walk with God.

Book Reviews

Mark B of Richland

There is a reason it’s called a classic5 star

This is a beautiful book that emphasizes the timeless truth of the Bible. It should be required reading for every Christian who seeks to know God more fully and to walk with him more closely. This is a book worth reading many, many times.55


A Challenging Call to Go Against the Grain5 star

This great book asks us to ask questions regarding why we do things a certain way as a church body in this age. The author points us back to Christ’s words and the specific habits and actions that truly define living the life of a Christ Follower. Tozer does not coddle. He lays into the lazy believer with comparisons to the Pharisees of old, the early church fathers and Christ Himself as a measure to see ourselves accurately as we are now and as we ought be according to the scriptures. If you are interested in spiritual growth, seriously, you’ll want to read this book several times and be willing to change some of the ways you think about church, faith, work, living, serving, and more.55


Someone after the Heart of God5 star

Scripture tells us God loved David because he sought the Lord's heart. When not reading the Bible for guidance, the second place I go is to an author who is truly and obviously after the Lord's heart. I felt Tozer was such and as a result I gained from this book.55


Astounding.5 star

The Pursuit of God5 star

One of the most important Christian books I have read. A W Tozer is a giant in spiritual perception with a humble gift of clearly explaining the most deep truths. Read everything he has written you can get your hands on! Don’t miss the blessing.55


A Correct Representation of God5 star

The author writes to the heart, not the head. His love for and devotion to God shimmer on every page, and appeal to hunger to know God in relationship rather than religion.55

Great book5 star

This book really tells you how to get close to God, it's a must read for all Christians.55


The Pursuit of God5 star

This book should be read by every professing Christian. It is not calling yourself a Christian in front of others that counts. It's what you do behind closed doors. Our relationship with Jesus Christ is all that matters. If you do not have an intimate relationship with Him, then you are not His. You are either running to God or you are running away from Him.55


Great book!5 star
