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.

    Story
    "Not for Everyone"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed it, or elements of it. Its certainly preachy tho- if you're not down with god, you probably wont like any of this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked its spirit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was all very uplifting.


    Do you think The Pursuit of God needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I did think the author put too much emphasis on surrendering yourself to god and holds little value in building for yourself here on earth, in a physical sense. but does a good job conveying a critical point of worship. the active pursuit of god. its good to remind yourself that god can be accessible to you, personally. overall a good work. started to lose my attention toward the end as it gets a little preachy, but that might be your thing. check it out if you're a christian looking for some inspiration or to renew your relationship with christ.

    "Maybe it was just over my head"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author could have more carefully explained what he was talking about I might have been able to follow. As it was, I feel that all I got were vaguely pious platitudes and generalities.


    What could A. W. Tozer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Remove the anti-catholic remarks from his concluding chapter.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    As I said above, this author may simply be too advanced for me.

    "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.

    "Absolutely Amazing!"

    Rarely am I impressed by so called "Christian books," but this one is exceptional. A.W. Tozer seems to have tapped into, however minutely, the Mind and Heart of God. Truly enlightening, captivating and fascinating. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of God.

    "A classic that is refreshingly contemporary"

    Precise, balanced, and beautiful, "The Pursuit of God" pleasantly ushers man through the veil of human experience into the worship of God. In the process, Tozer casts down a myriad of vain human attempts to engage God and the world--whether from theologians, Christians or non-Christians. He lifts the spirit of man from the oppression of worldly things into the very real pleasure of the One True God.
