“Tozer wrote this book in 1948, but if anything, it is more relevant today.” — John Piper
“He was one of the first preachers of my generation who made the Bible come alive.” — Frank Boggs, friend of Tozer.
That’s what author and pastor A.W. Tozer asked some 70 years ago when he wrote The Pursuit of God during an all-night train ride from Chicago to a speaking engagement in McAllen, Texas. Tozer began writing early in the evening, had a dinner of toast and tea around 9 p.m., and finished The Pursuit of God at 7:30 the next morning. He had penned a classic.
“[F]or millions of Christians … God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian,” Tozer wrote. “They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle.”
But Tozer — who spent hours each week praying — said there is hope for those who hunger for and pursue God: “We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.”
The Pursuit of God is for those who want to know God more — his holiness, his riches, his love — and to worship Him as did the saints of Scripture.
In 10 concise chapters, Tozer explores the “mysterious depths” of God like few authors can while using plain, practical language anyone can understand. Each chapter concludes with a prayer by Tozer and reflection/discussion questions.
