The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine Reviews

  • Angela Wallace

    I read this book over and over. It's the one I'd pick to have on a desert island. The way Tozer talks about faith and living the Christian life--he takes what religion has turned into complicated and noncommittal routines and returns to the blessed simplicity of what it means to pursue God, to fully engage your heart with His. I can't write a review that will do the book justice. It's a short one and can be read in one day, so see for yourself.

    My review of this book can be summed up in four words – it blew me away! Tozer identifies one of the major problems in our Church today. As a Church, we are creating a new breed of Christian who understands doctrine better than at any point in history yet fails to understand what it truly means to be a follower of Christ.

    Having identified the problem, Tozer offers a beautiful solution that is more practical and mystical than theological. His book is an invitation for the the reader to seek God a

    My review of this book can be summed up in four words – it blew me away! Tozer identifies one of the major problems in our Church today. As a Church, we are creating a new breed of Christian who understands doctrine better than at any point in history yet fails to understand what it truly means to be a follower of Christ.

    Having identified the problem, Tozer offers a beautiful solution that is more practical and mystical than theological. His book is an invitation for the the reader to seek God above all else. While many Christian writers invite the reader to seek God to the point of making a decision for Christ, Tozers encourages the Christian to make the seeking of God the continual foundation upon which their life is built on.

    Tozer’s book served to draw me closer to God and instilled in me the desire to come even closer. It is a book I am sure to read often in the future and gladly add to my list of essential reads.

    You will also be glad to know the book is free on the Kindle!

    Happy reading, Clark.

    Broke down in tears reading one of Tozer's prayers. Praise God for the hour I spent reading part of it today, it was as if God was hear with me sharing the wisdom from the book! Incredible book that taught me to slow down and listen to God.

    I hesitate to call Tozer a theologian because his approach to Christianity and the practice of faith is very practical. He is very well read and often deals with theological topics but he typically scoffs any intellectual dealings with faith and puts forth his down to earth alternative.

    The description of "down to earth" only goes so far, because Tozer is also very clearly a mystic. He focuses on experience, feeling and hearing God's voice as important to faith. He also emphasizes th

    I hesitate to call Tozer a theologian because his approach to Christianity and the practice of faith is very practical. He is very well read and often deals with theological topics but he typically scoffs any intellectual dealings with faith and puts forth his down to earth alternative.

    The description of "down to earth" only goes so far, because Tozer is also very clearly a mystic. He focuses on experience, feeling and hearing God's voice as important to faith. He also emphasizes those to the point of relegating scripture to a close second in matters of faith.

    I liked the book (this is my second time through it). Tozer has many good observation about a life of faith and good insight can be gained from reading this book. I am just not sure it strong enough to stand by itself as a guiding text for the Christian life.

    ----------------------------------------

    I revisited Tozer recently and concluded that I was a bit too rough on him in the first time around. It was obvious from my third reading that Tozer is a thinker. The reason from his initial distancing of his argument from scripture is because God needs to be viewed as a person to be interacted with and not a distant deity to give lip service.

    I still agree with most of what I said I just think that Tozer has better

    theological backing than I had once thought. His theology is intact and his view of scripture is sound.

    Personally I was struck by what he had to say this time. Tozer has some good insights that struck me at the core of my being. I will be chewing on this book for a while.

    I read this many moons ago, and just now listened to it again. Very edifying book, with some brilliant sections.
