To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux stated this holy paradox in a musical four-line poem that will be instantly understood by every worshipping soul: We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread, And long to feast upon Thee still: We drink of Thee, the Fountainhead And thirst our souls from Thee to fill. Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God. Let A. W. Tozer’s pursuit of God spur you also into a genuine hunger and thirst to truly know God.

Written during a train trip in the late 1940s, The Pursuit of God shows how God pursues humans to draw them into a relationship with Himself, while humans thirst after the things of God—though they attempt to fill this thirst with things other than worship of their Creator. Tozer explores different aspects of this desire within the human heart, calling readers to examine what they believe and put aside preconceived ideas that disrupt this relationship with God. “It is a solemn thing,” he writes, “to see God’s children starving while actually seated at the Father’s table. This book is a modest attempt to aid God’s hungry children so to find Him.”

A W Tozer (1897 - 1963) had little formal education when he started to preach, having grown up on in a tiny farming community in Western Pennsylvania. Yet his soul was on fire for God, and he would in turn set congregations alight. He set himself the highest standards. On the day of his ordination he prayed: "Lord Jesus, I come to Thee for spiritual preparation. Lay Thy hand upon me. Anoint me with the oil of the New Testament prophet. Save me from the curse that lies dark across the face of the modern clergy, the curse of compromise, of imitation, of professionalism. Lay Thy terror upon me, O God. Teach me self-discipline that I may be a good soldier of Jesus Christ." This biography will please all who admire Tozer's many books - from which he rarely profited, giving most of his royalties away and living on his meagre salary.

Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side […] a conquest of the Most High God. – A. W. Tozer With words like these, Tozer shakes the soul. He crumbles the lies we believe and calls us to the more sure way. In these pages, Tozer says what it means to truly be saved. It is not merely to assent to Jesus and go on our same old way, but to be conquered by the Almighty God and invaded by His Spirit. A saved person is a transformed person. Let Tozer upend you in this moving prequel to The Pursuit of God. And being upended, may you be found standing upright in an upside-down world.

Find Hope and Peace with an Intimate Pursuit of God *Top 10 Amazon Best Seller* "Tozer wrote this book in 1948, but if anything, it is more relevant today." -- John Piper "He was one of the first preachers of my generation who made the Bible come alive." -- Frank Boggs, friend of Tozer. What if millions of Christians around the world had the right answers about God but rarely (if ever) worshiped Him? That's what author and pastor A.W. Tozer asked some 70 years ago when he wrote The Pursuit of God during an all-night train ride from Chicago to a speaking engagement in McAllen, Texas. Tozer began writing early in the evening, had a dinner of toast and tea around 9 p.m., and finished The Pursuit of God at 7:30 the next morning. He had penned a classic. "[F]or millions of Christians ... God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian," Tozer wrote. "They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle." But Tozer -- who spent hours each week praying -- said there is hope for those who hunger for and pursue God: "We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts." The Pursuit of God is for those who want to know God more -- his holiness, his riches, his love -- and to worship Him as did the saints of Scripture. In 10 concise chapters, Tozer explores the "mysterious depths" of God like few authors can with updated language to enhance your understanding. Each chapter concludes with a prayer by Tozer and reflection/discussion questions for personal reflection. Do you desire to know God? To have inward peace like never before? To see your faith refreshed and renewed? To have your life transformed by a walk with God you didn't think was possible? The Pursuit of God is a life-changing book for lay people, missionaries and pastors alike. It is a book that will challenge you, encourage you and inspire you. It is a book you'll read again ... and again .. and again. Don't hesitate in your pursuit of a deeper relationship with your Creator. Pick up this book today to find hope, peace, and healing now and for eternity.

In this hour of all-but-universal darkness one cheering gleam appears: within the fold of conservative Christianity there are to be found increasing numbers of persons whose religious lives are marked by a growing hunger after God Himself. They are eager for spiritual realities and will not be put off with words, nor will they be content with correct "interpretations" of truth. They are a thirst for God, and they will not be satisfied till they have drunk deep at the Fountain of Living Water.This is the only real harbinger of revival which I have been able to detect anywhere on the religious horizon. It may be the cloud the size of a man's hand for which a few saints here and there have been looking. It can result in a resurrection of life for many souls and a recapture of that radiant wonder which should accompany faith in Christ, that wonder which has all but fled the Church of God in our day.
