I read A.W. Tozer’s Pursuit of God years ago and don’t really remember it. But I listened to it over the past week and was struck by how incredibly current it’s observations, evaluations, and exhortations are. The book was published over fifty years ago in a pre-Leave-it-to-Beaver America people look back on with fondness. But Tozer seems to be addressing America in 2010. His prose dates him, but the issues and the exhortations read like today’s Sunday paper.
Classic Book Review: Tozer – The Pursuit of God
Sunday, July 18, 2010
This week I officially started training for the Disney Marathon. That’s four runs a week; two short; one medium; one long. This sounds like the topic of a different post, so why am I writing about this in a book review? Because it’s during marathon training that I listen extensively to my mp3 player while pounding the pavement. I usually listen to Bible teachers. One year I audited free college courses. This year, I’m going to listen to books.
