Format: Paperback
There is no greater quest than the pursuit of God. If you thirst for the secret place of intimacy with the eternal Father, you will love this book. If you would like to be like Enoch and "walk with God", you must have this book! Mr Tozer brings to the reader an unquenchable flame for the Holy One and the undying desire just to draw near and behold Him in all His glory. He, in his attempt to explain a God who is beyond the greatest of human understanding, sometimes passes the limitations of even the most intellegent of readers. The study guide brings the deepest of trues to a level that even us "average thinkers" can understand. This book truely has changed my life and the life of many of my friends. Please buy this book. You will thank me if you do.

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Michael J. Bezenek on October 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
Tozer's The Pursuit of God is a deep, deep writing. Each reading reveals more of God and His purpose in our lives. The study guide, while faithfully following the format of the text, falls short of plumbing the depths of the text. It is a good starting point, but needs to be supplemented with teaching and discussion led by one who can reach into the depths the study guide leaves unexplored.

This little gem profoundly changes the way you view God. It forces the seemingly religious to seriously examine the practicality of living for Christ. Excellent and easy to read.

If I could recommend only one book besides the Bible, this book would be it. Written in 1949, it is a classic, and often quoted by more contemporary authors. Tozer provides practical insights and encouragement to those who hunger and thirst for God. His words are moving, inspiring, relevant, and profound. Once you have read this book, you will want to keep it handy and refer to it often.

This book provides a gateway to know and come closer to God. I have used this book to teach a class at my church and 18 of us have drawn much closer to God in the process. All of us note an improved prayer life and better focus on God.

This is the kind of book that you read and read again and then read a chapter, put the book down and try to process what you've heard. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about a real relationship with God. I tried to go through this book with a smallgroup, but most were not ready for the commitment.

I have this book and two others, of the same title, all of which were purchased from Amazon. This one is published by Wing Spread Publishers of Camp Hill, Pa. with an introduction by Rev. James L. Snyder.The second is published by WLC, which I can not identify via Google search. It appears to be a print on demand publication and appears to be a correct copy of the one printed by Wing Spread, without the Study Guide and with an introduction by Samuel W. Zwemer, rather than Snyder.. . The third is published by Wilder Publications of Radford Va. It also appears to be a print on demand publication. It is poorly edited - has many random words in Bold. It also has an obnoxious disclaimed which reads:

"This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race have changed before allowing them to read this classic work.

This disclaimer suggests that the publisher has a hidden agenda and I would suggest does not have the slightest idea what this book is about. The purpose of the book is stated in the title and it is a valuable guide. Shame on Wilder.

Do not purchase from Wilder. I can't tell who WLC is. I would recommend purchasing from Wing Spread.

Tozer had such a personal and deep relationship with Christ and genuinely wants to take you their with him. I got this book for my Bible study group and we are all long time Christians and found this book to make us consider things we never had before. Really love this book and highly encourage others to read and experience it.
