The Pursuit of God is an inspirational guide for Christians seeking to get closer to God, written by an American Christian pastor A. W. Tozer. In one of his most famous books Tozer identifies one of the major problems of the Christian Church. He suggests that the Church is making a new type of Christian who understands the Christian doctrine better than ever throughout the history, but still fails to understand what it really means to be a follower of Christ.
Having identified the problem, Tozer offers a beautiful solution that is more practical and mystical than theological. He encourages the Christian to take the seeking of God and make it the foundation upon which their life is built on. Being a mystic, he focuses on experience, feeling and hearing God’s voice as important to faith.
Tozer’s understanding of Scripture and his heart for God and the church come together brilliantly in this must-read book for anyone who’s serious about fully knowing and following God. The fact that this book was written half a century ago is irrelevant — people and the church were experiencing the same issues then that plague us today.
Thankfully, we’re not bound to those issues, as Tozer illustrates. The book is short, but you won’t want to rush through it. Not only is the writing style is different from what we’re used to today, so it takes a little extra time to process, but he packs so much wisdom and knowledge into each chapter that it takes some time to digest and let the words minister to your head and heart.
This book is a must-read for anyone wanting to live a life for God. Tozer doesn’t sugarcoat it, so you’ll know what kind of struggles and temptations are coming your way. Get your copy here!
