About "The Pursuit of God"
:The Pursuit of God is the enduring Christian classic written by renowned pastor and theologian A. W. Tozer. More than 65 years later, the words Tozer penned on a train from Illinois to Texas echo across the decades to resonate with power in the heart of anyone longing for a deeper experience with God. This devotional masterpiece is at once thought-provoking and spirit-enlivening, an invitation to think deeply about your faith even as you come alive to God's presence surrounding, sustaining and--yes--pursuing you. "This book is a modest attempt," Tozer wrote, "to aid God's children so to find Him." If you are hungry, The Pursuit of God will lead you to the only One who can satisfy the soul.
Meet the Author
A. W. Tozer died in 1963, but his life and spiritual legacy continue to draw many into a deeper knowledge of God. During his lifetime, Tozer pastored several Christian and Missionary Alliance churches. Missions and the deeper life in Christ were his primary focus. He also served as editor of the Alliance Life. Tozer authored more than 40 books, (at least two of which are considered classics: The Pursuit of God and Knowledge of the Holy), a tremendous accomplishment for a man who never received a formal theological education. The presence of God was his classroom, his notebooks and tools consisted of prayer, God's Word, and the writings of early Christians and theologians, the Puritans, and great men of faith. - Publisher.

Pursuit of God delves deep into the fundamentals of man's relationship with God and more so that of a Christian's relationship with God. Tozer's writing is as if he is taking notes whilst listening to sermons of God. Pursuit of God is not a book on the theology of the Christian faith, but it is a book of real life application as well as a form of spiritual inspiration and conviction. This work inspires Christians to live lives that exalt God; that put Him at the center of our hearts. Whilst he deals with profound notions, he writes in such a manner that most adult readers can understand. This is definitely a book to be read for those that want to explore the character of God.
This classic book by Tozer is a devotional style writing. Each chapter is a short devotional thought based on a verse or two of Scripture. Each chapter also ends with a short prayer of application to the reader. The chapters are not connected, so can be read separately. Tozer has a very unique writing style which appeals to some and misses the mark for others. This book would be a good introduction to Tozer for the reader. Although the chapters are brief, they are challenges and convict. Tozer will connect with some and miss others. Worth reading to experience the great Christian writer.
I felt compelled to let you all know the bindingquality of this book is excellent! Being an older classic and a relatively short book, most publishers print it as a very cheap production. Not this edition - great print size too.
