Reviews - What do customers think about Pursuit Of God-A 31 Day Experience?
Extra quotations were distracting Oct 29, 2008
I agree with the 2 star reviewer in what she said, however I would give the book one more star or 1-1/2 more if I could because after all it was still Tozer. I found that the editing did affect the impact of the book (having read the original), but moreover, the constant insertion of quotes from other sources (or even Tozer himself from his other works) was extremely distracting. I think if the book was read without the quotes it would have been much better, but then you may as well just get the original.
Love the original -- this edited version is not so great Jul 30, 2008
I LOVE the original text of the Pursuit of God. There are some amazing and challenging stretches of writing in the book that are well-worth quoting. However, after reading this edited version, I realize that the flow of the original book is also needed to truly appreciate Tozer's words and ideas.
I used this book for a women's small group and it served us pretty well. Unfortunately, I don't think the women walked away with the same appreciation for Tozer's writing that they would have if we had read the original book.
Buy the original instead!
So powerful, you can't keep it to yourself! Jul 24, 2001
This classic by A. W. Tozer is so powerful that you can't keep it to yourself. You do not want someone with whom you are close to miss out on the spiritual gems in this book. I am buying several copies to give to my friends. Tozer's deep spiritual insights cause you to look into the mirror of your heart while filling that same heart with an insatiable hunger for the relationship with God that He so desires for you.
Meaty Truth in Sharp Focus Jun 16, 2000
I was given this book for a graduation present when I receivedmy BA from Bible college. The hardest part to reading it is stickingto one devotion a day. Each short chapter was to the parched soul what an ice cold frosty glass of tea is to the hot, tired, and thirsty person. Edythe combined appropriate qoutes perfectly with Tozer's meaty (but superbly simplified)insights into deep theological thoughts. I plan to lead our church board through it.
Like water to the soul Jun 10, 2000
This Devotional drasticaly changed my view of God, and my relationship with him. Instead of a tempramental entity, I know see God as he truly is, Loving, caring, but most of all excessable. It didn't do much for my spelling though.
