Admitting to having been forced by inward pressure and an unbearable burden to write it, Tozer's aim was to assure believers that if they want to know the power of Christ they must be invaded by God.
"This little work of the spiritual way has not been 'made' in any mechanical sense, it has been born out of inward necessity....The sight of the languishing church around me and the operations of a new spiritual power within me have set up a pressure impossible to resist." - A.W. Tozer

remains here, just as in The Pursuit Of God, namely that a deep, mature theology resides in a direct relationship with the divine and a transcendence of the phony-miracle-monied-medicine show that most organized religion inevitably becomes. I highly recommend the work of Bonhoeffer and Barth as compliment to the work of Tozer.
There are very few authors who have the insight into God's word as A.W.Tozer. the church would profit so much if it would embrace the truths of God's word which Tozer brings forth to his readers.
I really enjoyed this even though it cut deep into a lot of the false things that hinder our deeper walk with God.
I must admit I was expecting more of an understanding of how God pursues us, as opposed to the things that Hinder that deep connection.
A short but robust read on the calling of God to Man and the efficacious work of the Holy Spirit. I enjoyed this book primarily because of its theological content and Tozer's eloquent style of delivering his message. I suggest this book to those who have an Arminian view of Salvation and those struggling with Reformed or the Augustinian view of how Salvation is received from God. I rate this book highly because of its clear theology and the emphasis of God's monergistic work in the Ordo Salutis (Order of Salvation).
I am up to 47 books in my Audible library, and this is one of the most real, powerful and challenging biblical treatises on the Christian's responsibility on how to walk in Him, that I have ever heard.
The spirit filled life is not the super christian version of faith, it is true faith. Excellent and thought provoking!
"God's Persuit of Man"
Tozer's dence prose are well read here so the voice did not get in the way of what was being said. This is complex theology explained simply - I felt I actualy understood it. After hearing it several more times I hope to remember it.
