One of my all time favorite books. If you enjoy A.W. Tozer's books this will soon become one of your favorite's too. And if you've never read one of his books, this is the absolute BEST one to start with. A true classic.
This is one of Tozers most thought provoking books. In it he repeatedly asks the question, Where are you with God? He tells that we are both the pursued and the pusuer when it comes to a continuing relationship with God. Tozer has a very porwerful mind when it come to serving God. It's to bad he died in the early fifties. His influence on some of todays top preachers, such as: David Jeremiah and Chip Ingram, is profound. these men we look up to in our time they looked upto A.W. Tozer in his day.
There are many things that I could say about why I didn't rate this higher. Let's just say that I think I have just grown weary of reading theology books in general because I have read so many and get nothing out of them anymore. I get so much more in reading the Bible on my own and with others while discussing with people, so that is why I probably won't be reading many more theology books. This book is kind of "duh" when you read it if you have been a long time believer. I feel badly saying it that way but there was just nothing special about it for me. I think it would be good for those who are trying to find God still and possibly are stuck in not knowing how to grow. The only thing that I really liked out of it was when Tozer mentioned about the church being in unity and all pointing in one direction reflecting God and how beautiful that is. I agree that it would be wonderful. I agree that too many Christians are just going with the flow and not truly pursuing God and it is destroying "the church". Want to pursue God? Just read His word, pray, and obey what the Word says.
