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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

I love reading A W. Tozer and this didn't disappoint!

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.

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.

If your a follower who longs to deepen your relationship with Abba. The Holy Spirit is the only one that can guide you in that, but this book was unquestionably inspired by the Spirit as a tool for children of Light better understand the positioning of The Creator in our life. Recommended if your looking to challenge your faith.

First written in 1948, this book still has plenty to say to all of us willing to listen.
