The Pursuit of God

A. W. Tozer


Written in a single night on a train and first published in 1948, A. W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God is a classic Christian devotional book that explores the nature of the believer’s relationship with God. In it, Tozer emphasizes the importance of pursuing a deep and intimate relationship with God, rather than simply seeking religious knowledge or following a set of rules. Tozer argues that the pursuit of God requires a complete surrender of oneself to Him, as well as a willingness to embrace the mysteries and paradoxes of faith. He also stresses the importance of cultivating a life of prayer and meditation, and of seeking to experience the presence of God in every aspect of one’s life.

Throughout The Pursuit of God, Tozer offers practical advice for those who desire to grow in their relationship with God. He encourages readers to seek God with a whole heart, to trust in His goodness and love, and to allow the Holy Spirit to transform their hearts and minds. Ultimately, Tozer’s message is one of hope and encouragement, reminding believers that the pursuit of God is not a burdensome duty, but a joyful and fulfilling journey that leads to abundant life and spiritual growth.

In 2000, The Pursuit of God was named to Christianity Today’s list of 100 “Books of the Century.”
