During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940's, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, the words coming to him as fast as he could put them down. When the train pulled into McAllen, the rough draft was done. Although written in such a remarkably short period of time, the depth, clarity and completeness of Tozer's message has made The Pursuit of God an enduring favorite. Download and start listening now!

    " In the muddle of day-to-day life, have you somehow forgotten that Christianity is a living, vibrant relationship with a personal God? In this classic bestseller, The Pursuit of God reminds and challenges you to renew your relationship with your loving God. In each of the 10 chapters, Tozer explains one aspect of hungering for God and ends with a prayer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 3/27/2012

    " Tozer blows my mind. The man is the definition of pithy; simple dedication to God. He wrote this on a train from Chicago to McAllen. I read most of the book flying from St. Louis to McAllen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny Jones | 2/24/2012

    " His is an honest and passionate discussion of what it means to be a Christian and whole-heartedly seeking God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niku | 1/2/2012

    " Awesome book! It is a book my Pastor had us read in our discipleship class. This book has definitely helped me draw closer to God. I've read it several times over the last few years and I'm sure it's one I'll be reading for the rest of my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peterhsu | 12/9/2011

    " still can't believe this book was allegedly written on one long train ride "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 6/27/2011

    " Completed this last summer with my dear friend, Janie. A powerful read and a very simple study. Included are notes to lead a group. Who knows...maybe some day I will try to lead a group according to this curriculum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 6/23/2011

    " Wonderful book. This was my first Aiden Wilson Tozer book and led to the reading of several more. In Tozer's view, we are created first and foremost to worship God. He has very compelling thoughts on this premise. Well worth reading! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 6/3/2011

    "
    One of the all time best if you are a Christian seeking God. Be prepared to be challenged and moved in His direction "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 6/1/2011

    " Tozer is sharp and insightful--cuts to the heart of the problem he tackles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 5/27/2011

    " an essential book for every Christian's library. Easily one of the top 25 Christian books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 5/6/2011

    " A wonderful book to read through in one sitting but I think best read very slowly. For such a short book, it has an awful lot of meat. It shows us just how worldly we really are. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 4/17/2011

    " Read this book... Even though Tozer wrote it in the course of a night time train ride, its message and depth will last a lifetime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonimarie | 4/7/2011

    " I've read this book twice and get something new every time...I love his bluntness! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne | 3/28/2011

    " What a preacher! What a man after God! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Isaac | 2/17/2011

    " Some good stuff, but also some not so good stuff.

    Also he refrained from going very in depth, which I think would've benefited him in the end. At times more discussion or clarity, would've been beneficial in avoiding some of the stuff I didn't like.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mitch | 1/25/2011

    " Tozer had the unique ability to write concise and practical biblical truths that stop you in your tracks and make you examine your commitment to God and living out the Gospel. His books are both challenging and refreshing and worth reading again when you are in a spiritual valley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheryl | 1/24/2011

    " While I find with Tozier that I have to go back over a number of sentences to compehend his writing, his teaching is outstanding and deep. Worth the effort for every believer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/22/2011

    " I thought the book had excellent content! I read it really slow as to get past all the wordiness and dwell on the ideas in the book. That worked great for me! Just a note that the book is definitely 'wordy' and not an 'easy' read. BUT, I wouldn't let that stop you from reading it- just go slow! :) "
