Free Christian Audio Book And Ebook

This month’s free download from christianaudio.com is an audio book of A.W. Tozer’s classic, “The Pursuit of God”.

During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940’s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit Of God. He wrote all night, the words coming to him as fast as he could put them down. When the train pulled into McAllen, the rough draft was done.

From the preface of the book:

Sound Bible exposition is an imperative must in the Church of the Living God. Without it no church can be a New Testament church in any strict meaning of that term. But exposition may be carried on in such way as to leave the hearers devoid of any true spiritual nourishment whatever. For it is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience they are not the better for having heard the truth. The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.

This book is a modest attempt to aid God’s hungry children so to find Him. Nothing here is new except in the sense that it is a discovery which my own heart has made of spiritual realities most delightful and wonderful to me. Others before me have gone much farther into these holy mysteries than I have done, but if my fire is not large it is yet real, and there may be those who can light their candle at its flame.

“The Pursuit Of God” audio book is free for the month of July only, account sign-up required.

Prefer to read the book? Download the text of “The Pursuit Of God” at Project Gutenberg:

There Shall Be Signs

Full Moon in June

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Luke 21:25-28

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Acts 2:21

Many years ago, we had a beautiful red briar pop up under an elm tree at our first residence. I figured it might be a berry briar, so we mowed around it that first year. The next year we had 2 briars, and the first one had raspberries on it! We only had a few, but they were sooo delicious! When we moved to the holler, I brought 2 of the briars with us. Over the last 8 years those 2 briars have turned into a nice sized patch -we now get quarts instead of handfuls! I have since found out that these raspberries are wineberries -also known as wine raspberries- and are considered an invasive species here in the United States. (I call them a gift from God -with a little help from the birds!) The canes of the wineberries get very long -anywhere from 6-10 feet- and when they touch the ground, a new plant will form. The plants are covered with red, hairy spines and the leaves look frosted on the undersides. Wineberries bloom in May here in East Tennessee -the berries get ripe in June and July. Wineberries can be found throughout the northeast United States in moist fields, woods, roadsides, thickets and yards. Wineberry patch in bud Wineberry bud Wineberry Patch Wineberries Handful of Wineberries Can you guess what we’ve been eating?
