Overview

"The blessed and inviting truth is that God is the most winsome of all beings and in our worship of Him we should find unspeakable pleasure."

"Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free. If we understand our first and sole duty to consist of loving God supremely and loving everyone, even our enemies, for God's dear sake, then we can enjoy spiritual tranquility under every circumstance."

"We get our moral bearings by looking at God. We must begin with God. We are right when, and only when, we stand in a right position relative to God, and we are wrong so far and so long as we stand in any other position."

"When God would make His name known to mankind, He could find no better word than "I AM." "I am that I am," says God, "I change not." Everyone and everything else measures from that fixed point."

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.

Tozer is what I call a "wordsmith", that whether by divine inspiration or pure talent, he can take the deepest theological consideration and "unpack" it to a reasonably simple conclusion. If he has written it, I want to read it again and again!

The Pursuit of God by Mister Tozer was read by this reviewer in a time when he needed encouragement in the things of God and in seeking the very face of the Triune God of Holy Scripture. I found it a delight to listen to in the car while partaking in youth ministry in the summer of 2016. How blessed I was by every good gift coming down from The Father and being able to increase in the knowledge of the perfect Gift, His Son, through texts like this, or Mister Andrew Murray’s Humility and Absolute Surrender. Prayerfully line those two texts up before this one and watch God work, not neglecting to firmly stay in His Word. That is The Priority. I must also commend the reader who surrenders what He reads to The Lord Himself, and I find it necessary to encourage him to keep doing this. I recommend this work for all truly born-again Christians, who have repent(ed) and believe(d) The Gospel, and even the seeker of God, Who says, “"Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else” (Isaiah 45:22); however, I also must recommend prayer and wise counsel from those whom God gives the (new) disciple, because “without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” (Proverbs 15:22). Ask and receive, dear reader, for The Lord Jesus Himself says, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Luke 9:9). Ask the Lord; ask fellow Believers; ask! This book is a great read or a great listen for a born-again Believer to seek intimacy with the LORD who saved them so that they might enjoy a restored communion and fellowship with Him in His love, by His grace not suffering the endured wrath deserved, now, in this life, “Heaven on Earth” since the Kingdom of God is at hand! (If you are not a born-again Believer; one who knows the Lord and the Lord knows him or her, repent and believe the gospel before going any further! Turn to Jesus Christ! On behalf of Him, I say, “enter through the narrow gate”!) “Repent and believe in the gospel.” I hope and pray this review to be a word spoken in due season (Proverbs 15:23) for the believer who is actively trusting in Christ, His finished work, and the promises of God in His Word, or for the seeker of God, seeking Him by His Word.
