4.0 out of 5 stars Cultivate a relationship with God February 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this on my Kindle, and my 14 pages of highlights and notes are testament to the fact that I found it highly interesting and helpful in my understanding of how to have a personal relationship with a living God. The bottom line idea that Tozer wishes to portray is that we must use the analogy of any personal relationship we wish to cultivate. "We have almost forgotten that God is a Person and, as such, can be cultivated as any person can." If we want to have a better relationship with a person, we don't go out and read about it (the irony of this statement in a book review does not escape me)...or go to lectures about it...we spend time with that person and try to find out what makes them tick. The entire book is exploring the challenges of doing this with a higher power we can't see.

He does not shirk the challenges of this or the inevitability of doubts, fears, and digressions. This, to me, made the book more authentic. "Whoever will listen will hear the speaking of Heaven...Believing, then, is directing the heart's attention to Jesus."

The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because its language--probably by virtue of its having been written in the 1940s--was a bit stilted at times. There were also a few times when I thought he crossed the line into preaching instead of sharing, and also making assumptions about his readers and what they already accept or believe that might not be true.

One of the things I most enjoyed was the prayer at the end of each chapter. In spite of language, these felt very contemporary to me, and resonated with thoughts and feelings that I struggle with in my own prayer life and spiritual journey.

If you have a Kindle, download a sample and see if it seems appealing to you. If you're looking at a hard copy in a bookstore, the Introduction and Preface will give you a good feel for it.

By Abrown

This is a great book. I recommend it to any mature Christian wanting to grow deeper and closer to God. It's not a lying, fluffy,feel good about yourself book. It's all according to the Bible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading!!! February 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent resource for anyone who wants a deeper relationship with the Lord. It causes one to think about their current spiritual condition and ask the question, "Do I have the hunger and thirst for God that I should have as a believer?"

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who hunger after God November 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I have ever read 3 times in succession, and I plan to reread it again in the near future. There are many nuggets to be found in its pages. If you have a true desire to pursue God and get to know Him intimately, following the instructions in this book is a good place to start. I especially like the prayers at the end of each chapter which helps to summarize the chapter and provide the action to take on the journey to pursuing God.

1.0 out of 5 stars For reformed Protestants March 21, 2014
By Audrey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of the things he says on intimacy with God are very good.
However, after every segment about relating to God, there are sections ranging from paragraphs to pages that are nothing but negative and sweeping statements of other Christians. He is critical of liturgical and sacramental theology, so he is super reformed, and the vast majority of Christians past and present (including the very first Christians, who worshiped liturgically and for whom the focal point of the service is the Eucharist) would not be able to agree with the book's OVERALL message.
He reduced intimacy with God to a conscious experience of the presence of God. It certainly IS that, but for those of us who are Catholic, Orthodox, or high church Protestant, intimacy with God is certainly MORE than just our conscious experiences of God when we are praying. He meets us very intimately in the sacraments and worship of the Church. Anyways, if this book didn't include so much negativity of other Christians, then it would be more beneficial. As it is, he seems to think VERY FEW Christians have intimacy with God, and it doesn't appear at all that he has checked church history to read about the numerous saints, martyrs, and monastics in other traditions than his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books I've Ever Read October 7, 2014
By Shorter
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want to experience the joys of Christian living, I highly encourage you to read this book. Tozer’s goal of this book was to aid God’s hungry children so to find Him (via preface of book). Here are some of the things I love about this book:

1. “The impulse to pursue God originates with God, but the outworking of that impulse is our following hard after Him.” Tozer explains the paradox of the importance of pursuing God. Even though as Christians we are going to heaven and we experience God’s unchanging love, there are still privileges of continuing to dive into God. God is looking for people He can lavish His blessings on, and those people are the ones who are diving into their relationship with Him.

2. “Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us.” Jesus’ death on the cross removed the veil that was hinder us from coming to God. There is nothing on God’s end keeping us from experiencing the presence of God. And yet, most of us do not experience God personally or experientially in life. We keep ourselves from God.

3. “To most people God is an inference, not a reality. He is a deduction from evidence which they consider adequate, but He remains personally unknown to the individual.” If God is real, then He must be relevant to our lives.

4. “It is the nature of God to speak, to communicate his thoughts to others.” God is not silent. God did not forget how to talk when the Bible was finished. He sees that plans He has for your life and wants to lead you into them.

5. “Jesus taught that His power lay in His continual look at God” (John 5:19-21). This is still a kind of radical thought for me, but Jesus did nothing on earth out of His Godhead. Everything He did is something we can do through the power of the Holy Spirit.
