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.

I could read this book over and over and again, never growing tired of the wisdom and truths that flow from this work. Tozer possesses an incredible insight into the direction of society, and what our response as Christians ought to be. This work will challenge your notions of faith and make you reckon with what you believe, trust me it’s worth it.
Could not stop reading. Tozer knows how to use words like no one I’ve ever read. His books just give you this deeper understanding of God that so many I feel are lacking. Highly recommend this.
A must read
This book is not for the faint of heart or those who don’t have time. This book will increase your knowledge of the truthful character of God, and should only be read if there is a passionate desire to know Him in a more intimate way.
