And He Dwelt Among Us: Teachings from the Gospel of John

4.06  ·  Rating Details ·  113 Ratings  ·  12 Reviews
Many Christians are familiar with the prophetic voice of Tozer, but few living today were blessed to sit under his weekly teaching from the pulpit. The Gospel of John was Tozer's favorite book of the Bible, and the focus of these writings (adapted from sermons given to his parishioners) is the Incarnation and what it means for believers' lives. Christ came down to earth in ...more

And He Dwelt Amongst Us was developed from material that was initially presented to a congregation, which would lead one to believe that the body of the work is appropriate for the typical church congregation. It is written in a plain, clear, and concise manner which allows a wide range of readers to understand the material. A high school student as well as a college graduate student will find this book informative and illuminating. Tozer does not address the entirety of John so a person wishin ...more

This book is a collection of thoughts, observations and meditations on the Gospel of John, and the significance of the concept of Emmanuel. Some of Tozer’s premises haven’t been analyzed quite as thoroughly as they might been, and so even though I agree with what he is expressing, readers who tend towards skepticism might find themselves wanting him to back up a few of his ideas with more substantial evidence and reasoning. However, that isn’t really the nature of this book, which is written in ...more

Anyone who is familiar with the works of A.W. Tozer is well acquainted with his unusual abstract manner of delivery. His unique perspective on the scriptures make this book a treasure. If one is looking for a complete exegetical commentary this book will disappoint. If one is looking to mine the deeper lines of thought found in John's theological perspective this book will not fit that mold. To find that the reader would be more enlightened reading "The Gospel of John" by F.F. Bruce or any Johan ...more

Outstanding teaching on the person of Jesus. "Christ is God walking among men" - what a simple but powerful summation of the incarnation.

A.W. Towzer writes well. Much of this book is about the very first chapter of the book of John, which happens to be my favorite chapter in the entire Bible. A great book!

I do enjoy Tozer, I love how he magnifies God and in this book how he explains more deeply Christ's mission on earth.

Good book. A collection of sermons and thoughts on the book of John, pulled together by a great editor, James L Snyder, of a few Tozer works published after Tozer’s death. Great stuff on Jesus from Tozer--really, you cannot go wrong.

Most impactful quote (for me, the idea I'll remember and go back to the book to look up in the future): "On one occasion, he offered this spiritual counsel to a young man just starting in the ministry: "Search your soul, do something for yourself, start over, take a

Unfortunately, since sermons are meant to be heard and not read, this made most of the book very clunky and repetitive. While when speaking, repeating things is a way to have your audience retain information, when reading, it feels overdone and slightly annoying. Some concepts introduced were interesting, but tended to lend themselves to tangents.

Tozer walked me through a study of John's statement: "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." Helped me appreciate the mystical nature of John's revealing and challenged me to make it experiential--good stuff!

Almost, I think, the intensity of Tozer could infect me.

This is all the theology that really counts.

After coming to Christ at the age of seventeen, Tozer found his way into the Christian & Missionary Alliance denomination where he served for over forty years.

“Jesus Christ came not to condemn you but to save you, knowing your name, knowing all about you, knowing your weight right now, knowing your age, knowing what you do, knowing where you live, knowing what you ate for supper and what you will eat for breakfast, where you will sleep tonight, how much your clothing cost, who your parents were. He knows you individually as though there were not another person in the entire world. He died for you as certainly as if you had been the only lost one. He knows the worst about you and is the One who loves you the most.
If you are out of the fold and away from God, put your name in the words of John 3:16 and say, “Lord, it is I. I’m the cause and reason why Thou didst on earth come to die.” That kind of positive, personal faith and a personal Redeemer is what saves you. If you will just rush in there, you do not have to know all the theology and all the right words. You can say, “I am the one He came to die for.” Write it down in your heart and say, “Jesus, this is me—Thee and me,” as though there were no others. Have that kind of personalized belief in a personal Lord and Savior.”
“Many people are caught up with the toys of contemporary society. Because of great advancements in our culture, some have cultivated an attitude of “comfortability.” They may be going to hell, but it is going to be a comfortable ride for them.” 24 likes
