Description

To have found God and still to pursue Him is a paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily satisfied religious person, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart. Saint Bernard of Clairvaux stated this holy paradox in a musical four-line poem that will be instantly understood by every worshipping soul:
We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still:
We drink of Thee, the Fountainhead
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill.
Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God. Let A. W. Tozer’s pursuit of God spur you also into a genuine hunger and thirst to truly know God.

    This book is really helpful for me to see how it works for us as Christians to remember to honor Him with the qualities of the Beatitudes and our awareness of our faith-filled life with the seriousness of the knowledge of His grace and honor and holiness. The information about the spiritual slavery is an excellent way to help me become cautious with what I can help others to become serious with Him. Pursuing my life with Him as He is with me and my faithfulness to His continual presence to lift up His hands on my heart to help the qualities of my heart.

    Through reading this book, I have realized how important it is to pursue the Heavenly Father. A.W. Tozer paints a beautiful picture through logic and the Word of God about the importance. I definitely recommend this book as a necessity. 10/5 stars! “We have been snared in the coils of a false logic which insists that if we have found Him, we need no more seek Him.” Excerpt From: The Pursuit of God - A. W. Tozer
