Overview

The Pursuit of God - A World Classic Best Seller - Bible Meditations for Christian Life

Here is a masterly study of the inner life by a heart thirsting after God, eager to grasp at least the outskirts of His ways, the abyss of His love for sinners, and the height of His unapproachable majesty-and it was written by a busy pastor in Chicago!

Who could imagine David writing the twenty-third Psalm on South Halsted Street, or a medieval mystic finding inspiration in a small study on the second floor of a frame house on that vast, flat checker-board of endless streets.

Where cross the crowded ways of life Where sound the cries of race and clan, In haunts of wretchedness and need, On shadowed threshold dark with fears, And paths where hide the lures of greed ...

Aiden Wilson Tozer (April 21, 1897 - May 12, 1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor. For his work, he received two honorary doctorate degrees.

Hailing from a tiny farming community in western La Jose, Pennsylvania, his conversion was as a teenager in Akron, Ohio. While on his way home from work at a tire company, he overheard a street preacher say: "If you don't know how to be saved... just call on God." Upon returning home, he climbed into the attic and heeded the preacher's advice.

In 1919, five years after his conversion, and without formal theological training, Tozer accepted an offer to pastor his first church. This began 44 years of ministry, associated with the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), a Protestant Evangelical denomination; 33 of those years were served as a pastor in a number of churches. His first pastorate was in a small storefront church in Nutter Fort, West Virginia. Tozer also served as pastor for 30 years at Southside Alliance Church, in Chicago (1928 to 1959), and the final years of his life were spent as pastor of Avenue Road Church, in Toronto, Canada. In observing contemporary Christian living, he felt that the church was on a dangerous course toward compromising with "worldly" concerns.

    Tozer's Totally Tweetable

    A.W. Tozer's wordsmithing, theology and penetrating barbs into modern culture are still as relevant today as they were 50 to 80 years ago when he was alive and writing. Every time I read this book I shocked into repentance of my shallow slavery commitments to Christ and just scratch my head as he continues to peg our culture long after his death. It seems that every other sentence that Tozer wrote needs to be tweeted. @TozerAW has beat us all to it and is worth following on Twitter.
    I thought that any review of the Tweetable Tozer would be remiss without some solid tweetable tweets.
    "The man who has God for his treasure has all things in One."
    "There is within the human heart a tough, fibrous root of fallen life whose nature is to possess, always to possess."
    "The pronouns, my and mine look innocent enough in print...they are verbal symptoms of our deep disease."
    "Whoever defends himself will have himself for his defense, and he will have no other.
    "But let him come defenseless before the Lord and he will have for his defender no less than God Himself."
    I could go on since the above quotes are just from the first 30 pages of the book. Plain and simple: this is a must read, a must own, and a must read yearly kind of book.

    Wonderful

    This book was such a wonderful blessing to read. It was just what I needed, as I have been longing for more of the Lord in my life. It was by far better than what I expected.
