The Pursuit of God


Read by David Leeson

(4.8 stars; 427 reviews)

"As the heart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God." This thirst for an intimate relationship with God, claims A.W. Tozer, is not for a select few, but should be the experience of every follower of Christ. But, he asserts, it is all too rare when believers have become conditioned by tradition to accept standards of mediocrity, and the church struggles with formality and worldliness. Using examples from Scripture and from the lives of saints who lived with this thirst for God, Tozer sheds light on the path to a closer walk with God. (Summary by D. Leeson) (2 hr 53 min)

Tozer classic

(5 stars)

Found this to be very insprirational,and one of Tozer's fine works. Well narrated by David Leeson one of LibriVox's many good narrators. Tozer's sermons still can be.listened to on line.This man was a very spirit filled man and it comes through so wonderfully in his writings and sermons. David's summary covers this work very greatly and thanks to him and LibriVox for a very enjoyable reading. If a follower of Christ very great read. Lend a ear and enjoy.

Whooooo!!

(5 stars)

The life we are told those who are not saved can have and those who are saved have is real and meant to be lived every moment of every day one moment at a time. In this book Tozer focuses on that very life, the life that those who have believed in Christ have and need only realize that we do have. It was a distinct pleasure listening to this work.

I thoroughly enjoy Tozer's perspective on Christianity and the word. Will definitely read this one again. The reader was great as well, firm voice and well spoken.

Excellent work, well recorded

(5 stars)

This classic work by the Spirit-filled servant, A.W. Tozer is a blessing that should not be passed over lightly. Stephen does a great job providing a clear recording.

Wonderful book

This is the kind of book that I can go and listen again. I really enjoyed listening to it and found it very inspirational.

What an amazing perspective! This writing should inspire any follower of Jesus to desire more than just religious practices.

Seemingly a great book. Unfortunately, the intonation of the reader is difficult to follow. The ideas of the book is spiritually complex. The reader speaks in monotone and so It makes it difficult to anticipate the subject and the predicate of his sentences. He also speaks too fast. Does not give you enough time to digest the point of the authors thoughts. Please re record! I hope a better version is recorded by Librovox.
