Summary

The Pursuit of God is a deeply spiritual book that focuses on forming a relationship with God through Christianity. In the first chapter, Tozer suggests that in order to know God, one must strip down to the bare necessities and focus entirely on the pursuit. Although putting God first can be difficult, Tozer asserts that doing so will effectively bring God into one's life.

The book makes several references to the Bible, and it discusses some of the main points in eloquent detail. In order for God to be a part of one's life, all selfishness and desires must be put aside. Having too many belongings and desires can put a barrier between God and the individual. Tozer states that since God is everywhere, individuals must always have God as the top priority.

Through loving God, the individual will naturally love themselves and others without selfishness or pride. The burdens of pride and selfishness, as well as any other burdens, are meant to be freed by coming to Jesus. The book offers a real look into Christianity, as well as explaining conceptual elements in the pursuit of finding God.

A "must read" for any believer!

This is an outstanding book that is very informative and yet concise and to the point. It equips the believer with not only theological truths, but also practical ways to pursue God and to deepen their relationship with Him.

This will surpass your expectations.

I have read this book at least once a year for the past 20 years because every time I do read it it enriches my inner man. For the first time I listened to the words through audible and it is exceeded my expectations. This one book has shaped my spiritual being in ways that are difficult to articulate. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is thirsting for more of God.

A true description of a heart longing for God

A true evaluation of self and self existence. A revelation of our personal battles when we set out to seek God once He has revealed Himself to us. This book is a must read for everyone who is thirsty to draw nearer to God.

Great narration of Tozer

Tozer can be a bit heavy to read, but the narrator does a great job and his accent fits the part. wonderful truth to meditate on.

Content is amazing, reading is rushed and monotone

This book exudes the sense of marriage between truth and love, logic and passion. The Biblical description of meekness was extremely helpful.
