The Pursuit of God - Christian Life by A.W. Tozer Introduction By
Dr. Samuel M. Zwemer During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in
the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He
wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the
rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an
enduring favorite. Aiden Wilson Tozer (April 21, 1897 - May 12,
1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, author, magazine
editor, and spiritual mentor. For his work, he received two
honorary doctorate degrees. Hailing from a tiny farming community
in western La Jose, Pennsylvania, his conversion was as a teenager
in Akron, Ohio. While on his way home from work at a tire company,
he overheard a street preacher say: "If you don't know how to be
saved... just call on God." Upon returning home, he climbed into
the attic and heeded the preacher's advice. In 1919, five years
after his conversion, and without formal theological training,
Tozer accepted an offer to pastor his first church. This began 44
years of ministry, associated with the Christian and Missionary
Alliance (C&MA), a Protestant Evangelical denomination; 33 of
those years were served as a pastor in a number of churches. His
first pastorate was in a small storefront church in Nutter Fort,
West Virginia. Tozer also served as pastor for 30 years at
Southside Alliance Church, in Chicago (1928 to 1959), and the final
years of his life were spent as pastor of Avenue Road Church, in
Toronto, Canada. In observing contemporary Christian living, he
felt that the church was on a dangerous course toward compromising
with "worldly" concerns.
