Meet the Author

A. W. Tozer (1897-1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, Bible conference speaker, and spiritual mentor. For his work, he received two honorary doctorate degrees. Among the more than 40 books that he authored, at least two are regarded as Christian classics: The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy. His books impress on the reader the possibility and necessity for a deeper relationship with God. Living a simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, he and his wife, Ada Cecelia Pfautz, never owned a car, preferring bus and train travel. Even after becoming a well-known Christian author, Tozer signed away much of his royalties to those who were in need. Tozer had seven children, six boys and one girl. He was buried in Ellet Cemetery, Akron, Ohio, with a simple epitaph marking his grave: "A. W. Tozer - A Man of God." Prayer was of vital personal importance for Tozer. His preaching as well as his writings were but extensions of his prayer life. He had the ability to make his listeners face themselves in the light of what God was saying to them.

    Good spiritual study aid

    Tozer is relevant even today because he speaks the truth of God's word. "The Pursuit of God" is deep and thought provoking. It is worth a read. It isn't very long and if you break it up by reading one chapter a day you will find it a wonderful supplement to a daily devotional.

    Excellent Book

    Tozer was most-known for this particular book, and I can see why. It was clear and easy to read and understand. He helped me to see ways to have a relationship with Christ, or improve the one I currently have. I ordered another of his books, and it is very good, also.

    INCREDIBLE! For everyone, but not the week-kneed!

    This book was absolutely incredible!
    One of the reasons it was so incredible is because it whooped my butt on several occasions! Just when you think you're doing "ok" or "good" you need to do a self-check - this book helped me do that, I look forward to reading it again and again.

    wonderful reading...

    The book has clear insight into what it takes for a person to follow closely and seriously after God. Tozer will tell the reader things that he/she needs to do in order to better follow God like he knows you personally. The things he writes about are amazingly simple yet profound, and most importantly, undeniably applicable.

    Tozers deep thoughts cherished.

    The depth of submission to Christ is outlined very well. Tozer takes the reader thoroughly through many steps explaining many arguments and issues in the Christian path to the heart of God.

    Timeless

    I don't know how I overlooked this classic for so much of my life, but I'm so glad I have it now as a resource on my Nook! Loved the language which, by being written decades ago, has a freshness when applied to today's working faith. Get it.

    Tozer is a pursuer

    Though much is very helpful for the Christian life, more than many larger volumes, the thoughtful will find things to pass over and things to come back to again and again. This should be in every Christian's library.

    Highly recommended! A must read for those whose hearts are seeking more of God.

    A.W. Tozer still leaves his legacy years after he wrote this book. I first heard this book on audio through my library and the second chapter brought me to tears on what hinders me in my relationship with God. I feel like I uncovered new insights into how to relate to God and what in my heart gets in the way. I have purchased the ebook, a book for each member in our small group and a study guide to use as a leader. You will not regret purchasing this book. It is truly a life changer!
