Audible Editor Reviews

In a sense, Christian pastor Aiden Wilson Tozer wrote The Pursuit of God (1948) to pick up where the Bible left off. In this audiobook Tozer aims to teach faithful listeners the "art of worship". In a performance that evokes the friendly, heartfelt voice of a great pastor, Mark Moseley serves up spiritual guidance for Christians who seek to become more devout and to develop a closer, more personal relationship with God. According to Tozer, "man must pursue God", and Moseley's sincere performance inspires listeners to do so. Perhaps one does not always need to visit a church to find a spiritual mentor.

Publisher's Summary

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite.

    Although published in 1948, it is still fresh, still so new! Tozer knows God! I loved it

    "Seek and you shall find."

    After years of Bible study, following my new birth, I can say that this brief work resonates with God's Spirit within me more than any of the innumerable books about life and love I have encountered. I will read this again right away and often. Here is the next step in your growth. May God similarly bless you.

    "I pursue by God to little"

    THe LORD our God has used AW Tozer and his devotion to discern the Truth of God's Commanding Words of righteous life for himself and communicated that Truth so that I hear, look and believe the simple way to live a Holy Life. I did not say easy. I said simple, for all that needs to be corrected is that I say yes to God and no to my heart that manufactures idols. I am praying that I may helped further by AWTozer's Attributes of God, volume 1 & 2.

    "Holiness in its Most Practical Sense"

    This is a book that is worth reading/listening to over and over again. Clearly motivating mortal man to a higher life while here on this earth when his pursuit is God.

    "typical tozer"
    What did you love best about The Pursuit of God?

    I enjoyed the topic and shorter chapters (about 20-30 min per section) and the prayers at the end


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    there were no characters


    What does Mark Moseley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I had to slow down to 0.9 x to follow - seemed a bit fast for the subject matter. he does inflect and emphasize certain sections


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I think I would have enjoyed it more if I'd been able to sit undisturbed to listen all at once instead of listening while driving and working


    Any additional comments?

    I did have to slow this one to 0.9x speed

    "annoying narrator"

    I struggled to enjoy this book because of the over the top narration. He seemed angry or confuse much of the time.
