Reviews - What do customers think about Pursuit Of God?
Most important Nov 2, 2008
I consider this book to be the most important I have ever read outside of the Bible itself.
Don't buy this edition Oct 24, 2008
A classic book but a horrible edition. I have never seen so many proofing errors in my life. Not acceptable.
The Pursuit of God Oct 13, 2008
The book itself, The Pursuit of God, is wonderful and powerful. There were a few editing errors that I found distracting. Also, other editions have discussion questions that were missing in this edition. I always appreciate having those.
This Version--Terrible Edition Oct 4, 2008
The book is amazing and should be read by believers in Jesus, as well as people who "just go to church." This edition, however, is edited badly and unreadable at times. :( I've only gotten through the introduction.
This book should be re-read annually Sep 28, 2008
It never ceases to amaze me how this book, unlike all of the others on the shelf (save the Bible), seems to demand to be re-read every year. Furthermore, I'm in awe of the way God uses it to "right the ship" of my spiritual life every time I read it. It's truly a timeless classic.
It should also be noted that the style of writing and the way in which the words flow is unlike anything else I've read. The bulk of the book was written during a train ride in 1949. The soul-stirring quality of this work shouts that God was leading and inspiring the hand that wrote. Don't confuse this with the inspiration of the Bible itself, I know Tozer had no such delusions. Rather, it's one man's journey into the deeper things of God, something badly needed by all of us who name Christ as our saviour.
If your heart is open and your mind is willing, this will likely be the genesis of a closer walk.
