The title of this book gives sufficient indication of what the reader will find i n it.

God and men and their relation to each other. This I believe to be all that really matters in this world, and that is what I have written about here.

As confirmed believer in the Man Christ Jesus as Redeemer and Lord my thoughts naturally arrange themselves around Christ, His teachings,

[Note:  This book was provided free of charge by Moody Publishers.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.]

This book consists of 40 short chapters that are focused on the theme of the relationship between God and mankind.  It must be noted that this book is fairly unsparing in its view of the weakness of the contemporary Christian message in the absence of a firm commitment to obedience.  This is a book it is easier to admire than it is to like, and one wonders if this is frequently the case give

This title is not as well-known as many of A.W. Tozer’s other volumes. Don’t let that lack of fame fool you as it has all the qualities that we have come to love in Mr. Tozer. In fact, even more than some of his other books he lived up to his title of modern-day prophet here. A few times he even sounded angry at our casual, carnal Christianity. He couldn’t suffer spiritual foolishness easily.

At 167 pages, this book is an easy, yet profound read. The chapters are short, but pack a punch. He knew

This is a collection of short essays that challenge the reader to engage in a thoughtful and in-depth analysis of their faith, beliefs, and daily life. So many challenges that the society and individuals were struggling with and trying to make sense of in the 1950s, when the book was written, remain just as true today:

- Value of commitment ("God will not revive mice. He will not fill rabbits with the Holy Ghost.")
- Leadership and humility ("In this day when shimmering personalities carry on the

Admittedly I bought this book because I liked the cover design, but as always, Tozer managed to deliver with the actual content.

His cunning insight into human nature, the modern church and the character of God has held up quite well for the most part over the last six decades.

I think that this was one of the better ones from Tozer, or it just spoke to me where I am right now. As always I highly recommend Tozer!

A collection of short punchy pieces. It is great material, with a gem in nearly every chapter. Not quite as good as The Pursuit of God or Knowledge of the Holy but still well worth reading.

Aiden Wilson Tozer was an American evangelical pastor, speaker, writer, and editor. 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. In 1950, he was appointed by the denomination's General Council to be the editor of "The Alliance Witness" (now "Alliance Life").

“Let a man become enamored of eternal wisdom and set his heart to win her and he takes on himself a full-time, all-engaging pursuit. Thereafter he will have room for little else. Thereafter his whole life will be filled with seekings and findings, self-repudiations, tough disciplines and daily dyings as he is being crucified unto the world and the world unto him.” 0 likes
“Truth engages the citadel of the human heart and is not satisfied until it has conquered everything there. The will must come forth and surrender its sword. It must stand at attention to receive orders, and those orders it must joyfully obey. Short of this any knowledge of Christian truth is inadequate and unavailing. Bible exposition without moral application raises no opposition. It is only when the hearer is made to understand that truth is in conflict with his heart that resistance sets in. As long as people can hear orthodox truth divorced from life, they will attend and support churches and institutions without objection. The truth is a lovely song, become sweet by long and tender association; and since it asks nothing but a few dollars, and offers good music, pleasant friendships and a comfortable sense of well-being, it meets with no resistance from the faithful. Much that passes for New Testament Christianity is little more than objective truth sweetened with song and made palatable by religious entertainment.” 0 likes
