A. W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God is not very long. It does not present some new doctrine that revolutionized the Church. Nor is its content very difficult to grasp at all. For these reasons the reader may be surprised to learn that this little book is generally considered one of the most influential Christian books written in the twentieth century.
The theme is simple: Tozer looked around in the 1940s, and he saw an Evangelical Christianity that was zealous for correct doctrine but almost entirely lacking in fervent love for God, the very heart of true religion. Yet he saw a few “sparks” here and there, people who were beginning to hunger for God Himself and not just facts about Him. He wrote this book to help them and to get others to realize the importance of pursuing God.
Unfortunately, the problem Tozer saw then has continued, and with all new dimensions added. The true revival that he sought has not yet occurred, and in its place churches have focused on everything from entertainment to politics, trying to fill the void left by the absence of God. Thus, Tozer’s book may be even more important today than it was when he wrote it. If your normal Christian “routine” has you frustrated, it may be time to pursue God Himself, and Tozer’s book may be of help to you.
