In The Pursuit of God, Tozer writes about why people pursue a relationship with God and how one can best go about doing so. Much of Tozer's doctrine can be found in this book. Tozer writes, “We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.” In chapter 1, Tozer explains that the reason one desires to pursue God is because God gave one that desire. God gives one the impulse, but one must “follow hard after him”. Tozer implores readers to strip to the “bare essentials” and present themselves before God without any efforts to impress him.
In the second chapter, Tozer uses the example of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his only son in order to show obedience and unwavering faith. Tozer writes that one does not own anything if one follows God truly. Tozer writes, “Millions call themselves by his name, it is true, and pay some token homage to him, but a simple test will show how little he is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who or what is ABOVE, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However the man may protest, the proof is in the choice he makes day after day throughout his life.”

A Christian Classic
Honestly, A.W. Tozer is such a giant in modern Christian history that I feel inadequate to really critique the man. Some people may not appreciate his views on predestination. However, there is still so much good content that this book, in my mind, that it is certainly worthwhile for everyone. On a regular basis, I would find myself stopping to spend a few moments pondering the content. The narrator is top-notch. He delivers the book with perfect balance- not over the top, but not dry or unengaged.
I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

A book you can listen to repeatedly
This review copy audiobook was provided by the narrator free of charge via Audiobook Boom.
The book is good and definetly helps one want to pursue a more meaningful relationship with God and to truly know Him. However, the author gets hung up on predestination a bit trhough the book. For those who don't agree with this notion, and I'm one of them, it throws one out of the narrative flow of the book. Otherwise a fairly good book.
