    I picked this one up, probably, b/c it was short and I'd never read anything by Tozer. I'd heard, when I was young and impressionable, that he was on the "mystical" side of things, and that, at first, scared me and, later, intriguied me. Tozer describes relationship w/ God in nontr...

    This book was one of the most fruitful and refreshing school assignments I've ever received. I have heard much talk of Tozer lately and now that I have read him I understand why. Every sentences drips with wisdom that has been soaked in much prayer. He writes beautifully and poetically...

    This book was a free Kindle download on my iPhone, and if I had realized what a treasure I've been carrying with me, I would never have looked at Facebook or any other app. I knew in the back of my head that this was classic Christian Literature, but I found it so practically applicabl...

    This was a May re-read. Tozer is an incredibly rich writer which defies easy categorization. Your everyday evangelical, fundamentalist mystic radio-preacher from a few decades back. So much here that is worth digesting slowly. With as much as I read, it is sometimes daunting dipping ba...

    This book stirred my passions, drew me in with the intense beauty of God, while at the same time gripped me with conviction. The core of this writing lies in the fact that before a person determines to seek out God, God has been already been pursuing him..."The impulse to pursue God or...

    First Review I hesitate to call Tozer a theologian because his approach to Christianity and the practice of faith is very practical. He is very well read and often deals with theological topics but he typically scoffs any intellectual dealings with faith and puts forth his down to e...

    This book would/will/does require thought and a solid grounding in the Bible. I find the central theme to be of immense and transcendent value. The theme dealt with has to do with the basic idea of "finding God" vs. "knowing God" vs. "growing in God"... I could say a lot but as ...

    An interesting and inspirational guide for Christians seeking to get closer to God. The book is public domain and is available free from many sources. I downloaded free, from Amazon, to my Kindle. I listened to it on LibriVox, also free, as I read on Kindle. It is about a two (2)...

    Every Christian should read this book. This book had clairification backed up with scripture. As I was reading, I had a longing in my heart. It's focus is on the Lord, not on what I can do better, or what I need to do, or need not do. It was about surrending and the importantance of kn...

    I rarely hand out five stars. But this book is worth it only considering the prayers at the end of every chapter. However, the content of the book is filled with wonderful insights, the likes of G. Campbell Morgan and Alexander McLaren. It's a short read but full of dynamite. You can s...

    I read this book over and over. It's the one I'd pick to have on a desert island. The way Tozer talks about faith and living the Christian life--he takes what religion has turned into complicated and noncommittal routines and returns to the blessed simplicity of what it means to pursue...

    This has been a great book to read and listen to simultaneously while being off work due to an injury. I found this book to be refreshing, encouraging,and challenging. I loved the prayers at the end of each chapter, which help one start to put into practice these great seeds of the Chr...

    I read as many books as I can find about Christianity and this book came highly recommended. I find in this book a profound love for Christ by Mr. Tozer. This is a must-read for any Christian. Every chapter ends with a short prayer, that I read out loud every time I read the book. It w...

    This little classic is a gem and is actually available for free in e-versions! Tozer speaks in plain language about profound spiritual realities ranging from our longing for God to the blessedness of possessing nothing to the quality of meekness to the way we divide sacred from secular...

    I have been wanting to read this book for a long time, and I am amazed that as I completed this book I wondered that had I read it sooner it would not have been as impacting. As is the way with God, timing is everything-perfect and precise. I will warn this is not a casual read. I ...

    This book holds a rightful place on the list of the greatest Christian books of all time. Of the many outstanding books that A. W. Tozer wrote, ?The Pursuit of God? is his most popular. If you have ever looked for this title in used bookstores, you probably found it terribly worn. ...

    My review of this book can be summed up in four words ? it blew me away! Tozer identifies one of the major problems in our Church today. As a Church, we are creating a new breed of Christian who understands doctrine better than at any point in history yet fails to understand what it ...

    One of the most profound books I?ve ever read was A.W. Tozer?s book The Pursuit of God. Even before I ever read this book and before I even heard of John Piper, God was already laying the foundations in my heart, teaching me the discipline of seeking Him. ?And without faith it...

    Tozer writes, "The modern scientist has lost God amid the wonders of His world; we Christians are in real danger of losing God amid the wonders of His Word." Discuss what you feel Tozer means by the second half of his statement. I?m not sure, but I think he fears we are in danger of...

    Feeling humbled to write a review on a book written by such a man of deep faith as AW Tozer. Nonetheless, I will do so in hopes of convincing some of you to take the plunge. It's a short book 122 pages....the language is a tad archaic but by no means insurmountable. The thing that ...

    My fourth reading of this classic proves once again that it never fails to challenge, to encourage, and to satisfy. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. AW Tozer's genuine passion for God and to see others encounter and draw near to God is unmistakable. He is relentless with his...

    Considering Tozer wrote this classic on an all night train from Chicago to Texas, I'm challenged to redeem the time I spend on airplanes! This intensely spiritual yet practical book gets beyond emotive arguments for pursuing God. Tozer stimulates a hunger for God and teaches us to f...

    Broke down in tears reading one of Tozer's prayers. Praise God for the hour I spent reading part of it today, it was as if God was hear with me sharing the wisdom from the book! Incredible book that taught me to slow down and listen to God. ...

    This is probably Tozer's best known work. And, it is a classic! He wrote this in 1948, but most of it could have been written yesterday. Timely teaching on living the Christian life. If you've never read it, you need to read it now! I just finished reading this for the third time. S...

    A classic, by one of the greatest minds and theologians of our time. Although written a long time ago, the content still holds true. It challenged me. Encouraged me. After reading this I can honestly say, "I want more of God." And isn't that the point? ...

    I would recommend this to any Christian. In fact, once I finished, I ran down to Barnes & Noble and bought 2 extra copies for friends. I took my time to read it (4.5 months). Read it, shared excerpts with others, meditated on it. This explores the importance of passion in s...

    This book addressed specific areas in which Christians can pursue God with one?s whole heart, mind, soul, and strength and gave me quite a few things to think on and strive to change in my own thoughts or attitudes. The chapters are short and the book makes for a great two-week daily...

    "God is here when we are wholly unaware of it. He is manifest only when and as we are aware of his presence. On our part there must be surrender to the Spirit of God, for His work it is to show us the Father and the Son. If we cooperate with Him in loving obedience, God will manifest h...
