There are so many classic Christian works from throughout history that I'd love to read. I've read parts of many of them, all of some of them, but it's difficult to get to them all. I've really been enjoying the copy of From the Library of A. W. Tozer that Bethany House recently sent to me. A.W. Tozer is the author of the classics The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy among others.

From the Library of A. W. Tozer takes excerpts from a wide variety of works throughout church history...

Confession: If the name “A.W. Tozer” appears on the cover of a book, it’s going to end up on my bookshelf. Does that mean this review is biased? You decide…

Aidan Wilson Tozer was one of the most influential preachers and writers of the 20th century, and has certainly had an influence on my life. The man was an intellectual giant. He is frequently quoted and paraphrased by contemporary authors (David Platt and Francis Chan come to mind), as his words live on in newer books.

Which begs the question

Have you ever wanted to peruse the bookshelves of people you esteem and are influenced by?

Could you imagine peeking into the library of Billy Graham, George Washington, Martin Luther King, Jr. or whomever else you may hold in high regard?

Well, Bethany House Publishers and James Stuart Bell have made that possible for us with the likes of noted American pastor, A. W. Tozer (1897-1963).

In From the Library of A. W. Tozer, Bell has complied short but powerful excerpts from various writers who influe

MY REVIEW:

Over the past two years I have developed an appreciation for the writings of "the dead guys" as a well known speaker affectionately refers to them. The writings of men like D.L. Moody, C.S. Lewis, Martin Luther and others are such an amazing encouragement to me. However, in all honesty, I find myself struggling to read an entire volume by them in my demanding, fast pace life when I have other books waiting to be read that are a easier reads. So imagine my excitement at a book that cont

Ever wondered how great men compiled their thoughts? Who inspired them? What encouraged them along side of their Bible? Browse through a collection of writings that enhanced the teachings of A. W. Tozer. I mean, we know the Bible is the main source of his life purpose, but how interesting to see who and what added to that!


From the library of A.W. Tozer includes a very brief biography at the front and over 200 writings, and over 35 different thinkers and authors in this book were influential on A

The name A.W. Tozer is widely known in the world of Christian Bible teaching. Though Tozer passed away in 1963, his books, messages, and teachings continue to influence Christians today. From the Library of A.W. Tozer, compiled by James Stuart Bell, offer readers a unique look into the writings that influenced Tozer and his ministry. These selections range from prayers and poetry to letters and sermons. Well-known authors such as John Bunyan, John Milton, and Dwight L. Moody are included alongsi ...more

The book is a collection of writings from the people who influenced A.W. Tozer compiled by James Stuart Bell. It’s slow reading, and it should be to have maximum absorption. In his introduction, Bell writes very enthusiastically about Tozer. He’s a big fan. I haven’t read a single thing by Tozer and I’m intrigued. But I’m not done with the book yet.

Instead of rushing through the review I am choosing to slowly go through every page with a pen and a highlighter to capture its words, to use later w

Good for use as a reference book or maybe an addition to a devotional time. Can't imagine what good would come from reading it straight through. Actually, there are many online resources and software products that make this kind of book nearly useless. The content is wonderful and made better through a digit format.
