A.W. Towzer, I would say is the very instrument that the Lord used for me, to really know what hunger for God really is. the first time i picked up his book was during a personal prayer and fasting retreat in Antipolo. I borrowed his book from the facility’s library and was dumbfounded by what he wrote there. I actually struggled so much with the words and concepts he used as language–so rich. It challenged me to my core to think correctly and reverently about God. it took me a while to even get to the next chapter because I found myself, stopping and really meditating on what was written.
That was perhaps way back 1990. It has been 20 years since that first encounter with the book THE PURSUIT OF GOD, but am still thrilled every time I re-read it. Yups! About 5 times already I think or more. It has been a watering hole for me, when times in my walk has just been messy and quite discouraging.
To whoever reads this, borrow a copy from your church library. If not, which is the better way, buy a copy of it. It will never fail to be a wonderful supplement to our quest to truly pursue God in all of His wonders.
