The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divineby A. W. Tozer
Synopses & Reviews
The Pursuit of God; The Human Thirst for the Divine by A.W. Tozer is the beloved, timeless, classic, work on man's desire to continually draw closer to God Whether you are thirsting for more of God or do not yet know of the "mighty longing after God" that so consumed A.W. Tozer's life and ministry, The Pursuit of God will draw you into a deep, abiding relationship with the One who nourishes the soul. This is the spiritual masterpiece that exposes the roadblocks that keep us from fully knowing God. It also reveals our responsibility of the pursuit and ultimately leads us into the very presence of God Himself. In the middle of day-to-day life, have you somehow forgotten that Christianity is a living, vibrant relationship with a personal God? Tozer reminds you, and challenges you to renew your relationship with the loving God. In each of 10 chapters, he explains one aspect of waiting on God, and ends with a prayer.
This book is clearly the number one best seller of all of A.W. Tozer books and is called "one of the all-time most inspirational books" by a panel of Christian magazine writers.
About the Author - A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God at the age of seventeen after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio. A self-taught theologian, Tozer was a pastor, writer and editor whose powerful use of words continues to grip the intellect and stir the soul of today's reader.
During a train trip from Chicago in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to work on The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night long, the words coming to him as fast as he could put them down. By the next morning, when the train pulled into McAllen, Texas, 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 — about 1.7 million copies in print in 15 languages.
Prepare yourself for a deeply meaningful and enjoyable experience.
"This book is a modest attempt to aid God's hungry children so to find Him". So said A. W. Tozer in 1949 in the original preface to The Pursuit of God.
