The Pursuit Of GodComment
“The Pursuit Of God” by A. W. Tozer is a book I would encourage anyone to read, that has a hunger for a deeper walk with God. Will it give you a closeness with God? No, but what I feel it does, is urge us to recognise that there is a depth of relationship to be had with God, if we seek it.
Whilst it might be a bit wordy due to being written in the late 1940s, it’s the heartbeat inside it that is worth the read and maybe even the rereading a few times.
As A. W. Tozer states in his preface, 'This book is a modest attempt to aid God’s hungry children so to find him. Nothing here is new except in the sense that it is a discovery which my own heart has made of spiritual realities most delightful and wonderful to me. Others have gone much farther into these holy mysteries than I have done, but if my fire is not large it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at its flame.'
My hope for you in reading this is, as the author states, that it might ignite a fire within your heart to pursue the God who pursued us unceassingly, for the sake of love. So have a read, share your thoughts or perhaps this has encouraged you to read more of Gods word for yourself. Love to know what you think!
