The Pursuit of God

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.

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.

    "A Mature Theology"

    Much like Bonhoeffer, Tozer's theology is not one of hockus-pockus, miracles, magical rescues or voices in the night, promises of heavenly rewards or threats of punishments and damnation, not one of picnics, "pastor appreciation" dinners, or easter egg hunts, but rather a deep and abiding yearning for the everlasting goodness that is God--and again, not a longing borne of a seeking after the comforts of heaven or the avoidance of hell (a "cheap grace" as Bonhoeffer would say), but rather the full and complete wedding of oneself to the goodness of God and a willingness to suffer for that goodness and godliness- because one loves goodness and Godness and not for any other reason than that. In a world of shallow organized religion which never gets beyond the doling out of loaves and fishes (or donuts and coffee), this is a refreshing revisiting of a true spirituality--a love of God, because one loves the attributes of God--and for no other reason than that.

    "Profound"

    I dearly love this book and recommend it far above most other books. It is a book of profound wisdom written by a man whose life was dedicated to the humble pursuit of God.

    There are only a few books that I make a habit of reading/listening to at least once every year, and this is among that selection of books.

    "esteemed by many"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As an excellent primer of the Christian life many of the issues with faith are addressed. The Pursuit of God seems better fitted for those who benefit from a rational approach than for those who are devotionally minded.

    "Short, Sweet, and Full of Good Food"

    I enjoyed listening so much that I also wanted a written copy of this so I could read certain sections over again. I ended up downloading a public domain version of the book for Kindle. One quote that struck me was in the preface, "It is a solemn thing, and no small scandal in the Kingdom, to see God's children starving while actually seated at the Father's table." Meaning that Christians want a deeper relationship with the God, but they don't know where to get it and this is not taught in church. This book was written in 1948. I don't know what was available for help back then, but there are hundreds of resources we can go to in order to develop a more meaningful relationship with God. All one needs to do is pick up a fork and start eating. A few good places to start are Henry Blackaby's "Experiencing God" or Avery T. Willis' "MasterLife" or even anything by Beth Moore, also John Yates does an amazing job sharing the entire bible in a course called Faith Bible Institute. None of this was available back then, but we don't have any reason to sit at the Father's table and go hungry. Pick up a fork and dig in! At any rate, this was a very good, little book and is definitely worth the time to listen.

    "Great book but please take a breath"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Very fast reading. The pace would have been acceptable for a story (or maybe a much smarter person than myself) but this is heavy material. I could not keep up with the material. A slower pace and a breath between sentences would have made this much easier.
