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.

If you were attracted to the title and perhaps the history of this fine author I will say with surety that this work will not disappoint!! It is a book for the serious of heart and desiring to draw closer to God and reap the benefits of communion and a greater anointing. Author A.W. Tozer holds nothing back in his straightforward way of revealing how sin, self, and pride are stumbling blocks preventing true union with God.
In each of these chapters the reader will gain greater clarity on how to pursue God and follow hard after Him. His illustration of the Old Testament tabernacle will relay how the interior journey of the soul goes from sin to God's presence. The many sins of "self" will need to be brought to the cross, he states before the veil of true communion can take place. "Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. We must confess, forsake, repudiate the self life and then reckon it crucified ".
Very enlightening. Takes you to a different place and leaves you to ponder God. If you are very serious about pursuing the Lord then I suggest this read. It is deep and requires thought. Takes time to absorb.
I had read this book a long time ago and it was so refreshing to read it again. It is a timeless book that speaks to the heart of every man and woman who is in the pursuit of God. This edition has been updated so is easier to read and understand.
I was amazed as I read The Pursuit of God as it seemed like it had been written today. Sometimes we forget that the troubles of man never change and that the things we're seeing today have been seen before. Not only that, but the heart of man is always looking for an answer and it is the pursuit of God and the relationship with God that fulfills us.
So many in the church are not being fed the Word of God. As Miilton says, "The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed." So many of our churches are feeding us milk and platitudes when what we need is meat and something substantial.
Tozer gives us so much in this little book in teaching us how to grow closer to the Lord. How to get more out of our time that...
