I grew up in a conservative Christian church, my father was a pastor, and I was studying for the ministry when I purchased this book as a gift for a good friend. I didn't want to give him a gift that would lead him astray, so I decided to read the first chapter.
What I found was nothing like what I had known. This was no dry, moldy, "scholarly" book--this was alive. The blessed truths that had been buried in my heart and mind beneath the drudgery of modern scholarship's debates over dating, authorship and sources came pouring forth in what I can only describe as "rivers of living water" (John 7:38). Through the Spirit-led power and insight of Tozer's writing I was awakened to the reality of the Almighty God and the nearness of His blessed Holy Spirit in an amazing way. The prayer he offers at the end of the first chapter (in which he borrows Moses' prayer from Exodus 33) left me in stunned awe before my Maker.
This book (as its author was) is annointed with the presence and power God. I would most highly recommend this book to any person--both those who thirst for more of God and those who know nothing of this deep soul-hunger. Tozer speaks with an authority and passion characteristic of one who has been in the very presence of God. Let the Spirit speak to you through this great saint as you embark upon Man's most noble effort--the Pursuit of God.
For instance, on page 13, Thee is spelled TThee. On page 17 it's T Thee.
Also, one sentence on page 13 reads "That is the heavenly birth without which we cannon: see the Kingdom of God."
Page 16 reads "Lift up thine heart unto Gel..."
Very shoddy work by this publisher, trashing a great classic.
I highly recommend you purchase this wonderful work by A. W. Tozer, but buy it from a different publisher. I've already printed my return labels and will be sending this one back to Amazon. I'll reorder from a different publisher.
