Sometimes the voices that speak most clearly in the present are those that echo from the past. So it is in this Christian classic by the late pastor and evangelist A. W. Tozer. In The Pursuit of God, Tozer brings the mystics to bear on modern spirituality, grieving the hustle and bustle and calling for a slow, steady gaze upon God. With prophetic vigor and flowing prose, he urges us to replace low thoughts of God with lofty ones, to quiet our lives so we can know God’s presence. He reminds us that life apart from God is really no life at all. Tozer's bestseller, this book has been called "one of the all-time most inspirational books" by a panel of Christian magazine writers. And with this study guide, ideal for group or individual use, reflection and discussion questions will help you internalize the content and apply it to your life.
Holiness should mark the life of every Christian. But holiness often is hard to understand. In the 12 lessons in this companion study guide to The Pursuit of Holiness (ISBN 9781576839324) by Navigator author Jerry Bridges, you can discover the Bible’s guidelines for holy living. As you develop a deeper relationship with God, you will learn more about His character, grow in maturity, and understand the role the Holy Spirit plays in your pursuit of holiness.
This new edition replaces both The Pursuit of Holiness and the separate study guide by combining both resources into one volume! “Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature. The included study guide contains 12 lessons.

Often quoted by Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham and other great preachers, A. W. Tozer's words are being heard and read by millions today words like: "Origin is a creature word... All things have an origin. But when you come back to God, you come back to the One who has not origin. He is the Cause of all things, the uncaused Cause. God is Transcendent." "You'll never find Him on your own... He is far away in one sense, but in another He is as near as your heartbeat, for the cross has brdiged the gulf." "If there is anything God could learn, it would mean that God didn't know it before. If he didn't know it before, then He didn't know everything, He wouldn't be perfect, and if He isn't perfect then He isn't God." The chapters of this book were originally preached as sermons at Avenue Road Church in Toronto, ON. Whether spoken or written, Tozer's words were designed to "promote personal heart religion" among God's people.
