Summary

To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux stated this holy paradox in a musical four-line poem.

Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God. Let A. W. Tozer's pursuit of God spur you also into a genuine hunger and thirst to truly know God.

Where can I find God?

Is he in a church, if so which one? Many churches declare themselves to be the only road to God. Aren't our bodies meant to be God's temple where He dwells within? Does he know my every thought? How do I communicate with Him? I want "A Closer Walk With Thee." Does God want to be with me? These have been my personal reflections most of my life. I am 70 years old, and this book has answered most of my questions. I will continue my pursuit, because I know I need my Lord, and now I know He wants me to live and rest in Him, too. "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."

Take the time to enjoy thoroughly

This is not a book to rush through. Each chapter can be a complete study in and of itself. Grab a friend and walk through the chapters together and take the time to discuss and digest. Good stuff! You’ll never be the same.

Every Christian should read this book

Tozer is a humble author. His book points your eyes to Jesus. He then gives the reader points of reference to teach how we can continue our Pursuit of the Lord that is the lover of our soul

Exactly what I always knew! but no church I’ve ever been to practices

I finally read the first book ever in my life that explains how to be close to GOD according to scripture that I always knew in my heart was the only way! ❤️ There was never a church, priest, rabbi, minister, pastor, or any religion i.e. catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Assemblies of God, Protestant, 7th Day Adventist, Evangelical Free, Apologist, etc. etc., since I got saved 25 years ago that could teach God’s word correctly because of greed for money and growth and materialism and rituals and building projects 😫
The hypocrisy and lack of real faith in today’s churches is comical at best! This book has brought me to a place where I am now more confident than ever in my faith in God and my walk. I now know the right way to pray for the religious Pharisees in the world today bastardizing Gods word for their own wealth! God doesn’t want our money or to use it to pay for 10 plus church staffs salaries and their entire families health plans either...so sad...God must be reeling to see the mockery many churches in the world today have made. They are supposed to be meek and only concerned with sharing the gospel to others so everyone’s hearts yearn to have a right relationship with Him and seeks Him not man💔 Nobody needs Bible college and degrees 🤦🏼‍♀️ in order to guide someone to God. God’s Holy Spirit was left with all of us when Jesus went home, it’s so simple it’s stupid 🙄

Simple, relevant, and timeless

I liked this book for a few reasons. The first is that it's a quick, practical read. Yes, Tozer does include a fair share of biblical passages, but he doesn't drown the reader in them. Instead, he uses them to connect to the rest of the narrative effectively and drop some practical life principles on the reader.

The second reason I liked this book is that the author's conclusions and takeaways are pretty on point. For example, Tozer says that most of our problems on earth stem from neglecting our relationship with God and other people and that we're too focused on secularism / materialism. I could not agree more.

The third reason I enjoyed this book stems from the paragraph above — not only are Tozer's points relevant and accurate, but he made all of them more than 70 years ago. That's right — I didn't know it until after I read the book, but this one was originally published in 1948. Timeless stuff here. Definitely worth a read.

A must read for all!!!

A must read for any level! Maybe a bit deep in some areas for new believers but I think anyone can take away some blessings from this book. Praise God for simple but yet so spiritual people like Tozer.

A.W Tozer gives a framework of our spiritual reality! Loved it so so much🙌

A. W Tozer knew what it meant to have a relational and experiential relationship with God and how he beautifully gives of a picture of what should be as opposed to what it. For those desirous to step in through the torn veil and behold the majesty that is behind the veil - the very God Himself in spirit and truth.
