Written during a train trip in the late 1940s, The Pursuit of God shows how God pursues humans to draw them into a relationship with Himself, while humans thirst after the things of God though they attempt to fill this thirst with things other than worship of their Creator. Tozer explores different aspects of this desire within the human heart, calling readers to examine what they believe and put aside preconceived ideas that disrupt this relationship with God. It is a solemn thing, he writes, to see Gods children starving while actually seated at the Fathers table. This book is a modest attempt to aid Gods hungry children so to find Him.… (mehr)

This book talks about how God has made himself available to all that would call upon him. Our job is to give up things that hinder our hearing his voice and having communion with Him and realizing his daily presence. We must do this on His terms and not ours. The veil between God and people is now torn and it is up to us to be willing to surrender and come to him in humility and faith. Great book, wish it was a little longer. ( )

Read as a young Christian 16 years ago and has helped shaped my life and faith. "If my fire is not large it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at its flame." To have found God and still pursue him is the paradox of love. ( )

I enjoyed going through this as a buddy read, as it has been sitting unread on my Kindle for years. I’m not quite sure how to rate it because although there are parts that will stick with me, I had quibbles with other parts; and I suspect that his tone/approach in other works would resonate more with me.

In my opinion, this is a book that everyone should read. If you're not a Christian, it will open your heart and eyes to the living God and, if you are a Christian, it will draw you closer to the Lord and create a deeper relationship with him.

This book was originally published in 1948 but it's Biblical principles and truths contained inside are timeless. It's written in a way that is easy to read and apply to your life. It was difficult for me to put down. I had a highlighter in hand the whole time I was reading as there was so much I want to refer back to.

Mr. Tozer emphasizes that we need to experience God - to cultivate a relationship with him that grows through consistent time with him as we would anyone important to us in our life. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "God wills that we should push on into His Presence and live our whole lives there". This, for me, explains what this book is about in that one sentence.

This really is a book that I will read over and over again. With each reading, I believe there will be new things that pop out of me. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.

*This book was provided to me by Bethany House. I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this book. ( )

This is the book i hoped that Knowing God would be. Full of passion and insight about your relationship with God. I could go one, but everyone should read this book. It's dated, but it holds up really well. This book good aptly be described as inspirational (while most books with that moniker are not). ( )

Every age has its own characteristics. Right now we are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart. The shallowness of our inner experience, the hollowness of our worship and that servile imitation of the world which marks our promotional methods all testify that we, in this day, know God only imperfectly, and the peace of God scarcely at all.
