this is a great book and the reading of it also great.
definitely a keeper- will plan to also get a hard copy of this book however really enjoyed just listening to it. Stir your heart to intimacy and come into the secret place.
Why B, Why?
Absolutely. It's precisely because I intend to listen to it over and over again. The insight, passion, and clarity of A.W. Tozer are too often missing in our day. As he says in the book, "Between the scribe who has read and the prophet who has seen there is a difference as wide as the sea. We are today overrun with orthodox scribes, but the prophets, where are they? The hard voice of the scribe sounds over evangelicalism, but the Church waits for the tender voice of the saint who has penetrated the veil and has gazed with inward eye upon the Wonder that is God." Tozer's is such a voice.
I'm going to go with God on this one. :-)
Seriously, it's not that kind of book. This is not a story; Tozer is describing the movements of the spiritual life.
He reads well, but he's not the attraction here.
No. I like to listen to it in sections and spend time reflecting on them and responding to God in prayer.
I don't know if there's a way to do so easily, but it would be very helpful to have the 'chapters' actually match the chapter divisions in the book. I've enjoyed Audible so far, but I do find it unnecessarily confusing to navigate, especially in books that are segmented into multiple 'parts' (e.g. the New American Standard Bible is a great gift, but troublesome to actually use).
Just like the title: Pursuit of God
Tozer is becoming one of my favorite theologians. His writing is easily understood and he has a strong insight into the heart of God
The last chapter was my favorite
No. This is a book to take one chapter at a time and reflect on it through out the day. Consuming this all in one sitting would be a little overwhelming and much of the content would be lost.
If you are looking for an author that is in pursuit of God's heart, it is Tozer. As such, I'll be seeking more of his books. Grover Gardner is a good choice for Tozer as well. His voice is calm and clear. He doesn't add or distract from the content which is what I was looking for.
