Non Fiction Book Review: The Pursuit of God

The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer

The Pursuit of God: The Human Thirst for the Divine
by A.W. Tozer

4.5 out of 5 stars

This book dives deep into spiritual truths and how we can strip away foolish lies we tell ourselves and truly pursue God with our whole heart. There are chapters about what real spiritual treasure is worth compared to earthly riches, how Christ has removed the barrier of our sin so that we can approach God, and the “universal Presence” of God and how we can be more aware of His Presence in our lives. I especially loved the chapter about “The Gaze of the Soul” and how faith is simply looking to God and turning our spiritual eyes to Him. There is also a lovely chapter about the meekness of Christ and how we can rest in Him.

The writing style is simple enough for anyone to follow, but it dives into really deep and meaningful ideas. Every paragraph is so powerful that it speaks to your soul in a special way!
I had to take my time reading this little book, just reading a few pages a day, and then stopping to reflect and pray over what I had read.

I really loved that there is a prayer at the end of each chapter that you can pray, helping you to apply the things you have read to your own spiritual journey.
