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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    "All Christians should read this..."

    A.W. Tozer has a unique way of clearing out the misguided understanding of the Holy Bible. Narrowing the focus of what Jesus did for us and what God is calling us all to do today is the overarching message and the clarity is perfect...

    "plain spoken faith to those hungry for truth"

    Tozer cuts through empty rhetoric & ritual like Paul Bunyan through a forest. As one reads, the dead trees of religion fall to the ground with a thud and the sunshine of the Gospel shines brightly through.

    Amazing book. I especially found chapter 9 on humility helpful. Understanding who we are and where our worth is found is so important in relation to God. Bless you Tozer for taking the time to share what God revealed to you in your life.
