Overview

This book of readings is a book about the pursuit of God as a noble duty, not for the faint of heart.  It is one that is divinely inspired, as Tozer says, by an urge placed in us by God to spur us on to the pursuit.  The pursuit is asking God to reveal His Glory.  It is coming to God humbly and simply.  This 31-day devotional will fill your heart with the warmth and regenerative power of the Holy Spirit.  Each day for 31 days, A.W. Tozer offers a new meditation on the nature of faith as he sees it.  He challenges the devotee to come to God with a humble heart, and an uncluttered mind by the materialism of the sinful world.  Over and over again he asserts the challenge of denying the self-life in exchange for a full devotion to the Lord.  God is speaking, he says, and it is up to the believer to listen, be receptive and pursue!    Also included in this book are several various special features; One is the excerpts from other works of Tozer as well as some poems and the rare Rules for Self-Discovery which is a great tool to have in your possession!  Prepare yourself for a deeply meaningful and humbling experience in meditation and fellowship with God.

    If you're wondering if God can be personally known, this is a must! One chapter a day, easy to do. All that is required is an open & honest mind. You don't have to check your brain at the door.

    The title, "Pursuit of God", is misleading. It is actually God who pursues us while we search for Him! This book shares the fact that God is relational. He made us relational beings. God wants a relationship with us, but there are so many distractions and white noises around us that we must pursue Him by getting rid of the noises. Then we can hear Him and personally know Him. This book does not require you to turn your brain off. Rather it encourages you to use your intellect and your heart and explore how to enter into a relationship with God. This book is a must read for the sincere and guileless person.
