AW Tozer is one of my favorite authors. He was a prolific pastor and teacher who continually called the Church back to a right relationship with God.
But a little, rather unknown book that was written as a prequel to The Pursuit of God, is Tozer’s God’s Pursuit of Man (originally called The Divine Conquest).
Tozer said of this book, “This little book of the spiritual way has not been ‘made’ in any mechanical sense, it has been born out of inward necessity. … The sight of the languishing church around me and the operations of a new spiritual power within me have set up a pressure impossible to resist.”
Simply, God’s Pursuit of Man is all about what it means to know God and recognize our need to live dependent upon Him. It is only when we properly understand our need to rely upon, depend, and abide in Christ that we are freed to fully pursue Him. God has pursued us and we, in turn, must seek and pursue Him.
Tozer has an incredible way of making complex issues simple, and if you desire to thrive in your faith and grow in intimacy with Jesus, this book will set you in the right direction.
I love this book and I’m excited to give away five copies this month.
