When you have Tozer on the Attributes of God you have Tozer at his best. Perhaps you have read his “Knowledge of the Holy” and found it one of the most amazing books you have ever read as I have. This volume, along with the corresponding volume 1, cover the same territory but with a more conversational and devotional approach. It is profound and worth reading even if you have read “Knowledge of the Holy.”

After an Introduction that talks about God’s Character in general, Tozer presents ten of the

Tozer's Pursuit of God (my review) is one of my all-time favorite books, and this one ranks pretty highly on the list of Christian works as well. The editor has compiled several Tozer sermons examining ten attributes of God. This was a free audio book of the month at I finished this book while in the middle of reading J.D. Grear's (very modern) Gospel Revolution. I find that while Grear intends to draw attention to the infinite magnitude of God in the Gospel, he is largely ig ...more

On this book, I will simply echo my previous review of the former volume. The book is highly practical and engaging. The tone is less formal than Tozer’s “Knowledge of the Holy” and probably better suited to a group book study approach. There is some overlap with “Knowledge of the Holy,” but overall it was an excellent read in its own right.

This is the 3rd book I've read by A.W. Tozer. I'd say he is one of my favorite Christian authors. I have agreed with everything that I have read. Love that he uses the bible to prove his argument. Very biblical and encouraging book. Needed to refocus my gaze back on God!! Would definitely recommend it! Can't wait to start another book by Tozer!

I love the way Tozier challenges the reader to think about the greatness of God in all His apsects.

An excellent book, absolutely worthy of reading and using in your study of God's attributes and together with Scripture. HOWEVER, Vol. 1 made more of an impact on me, so if you had to choose one to read, I would go with Vol. 1 over Vol. 2. That being said, ideally - read both. I came away with much to ponder and a deeper understanding (and reminder) of the awesomeness of God.

On a personal note: Before reading Tozer, I didn't even realize I had put God in a box... now I can never imagine doing s
This is the second of Tozer's books I've tried reading. The content is excellent, and so far, I agree with him and think he is teaching truth. However, there is something in the writing style that I just don't enjoy. Perhaps its the style that results from him "writing like for a magazine" which I've heard said about the two Attributes of God books. Ah, well, to some extent, we are each unique.

For a good explanation of who God is, however, these seems an excellent book.

This is not the best Tozer book (that title may have to go to The Knowledge of the Holy) but it was a solid and edifying read. There are several points where his Arminian presuppositions poke through as he is wrestling with application, but his ability to take majestic truths about God and put them forward plainly and powerfully is unparalleled! The last chapter on The Perfections of God is worth the price of the book!

I did this as a small-group study and it is very enlightening, a good companion to volume one. It definitely broadens any limited view you may have of God! Each chapter details a different attribute of God, and there is a study guide section with questions. God is so outside of our limited human minds, the book inspires more reverence for Him. I would recommend for other believers.

I didn't get quite as much out of this as I did out of volume 1. Perhaps because some of the foundational ideas are, naturally, repeated between the two books. Also I read this by myself and discussed the first one in a group - thus, perhaps, getting more out of it? All that said, worth reading to expand your mind and awareness of how BIG God is.

Just completed this study book with a great group of lady friends. I think its best done in a group to get the feedback of others. Learning the attributes of God will definately give you a deeper relationship and better understanding of who God is.

I read this book several years ago, and it is a continuation of Tozer's first volume on the attributes of God. I would recommend these two volumes to anyone who wants a closer walk with God.

Follow up on his first attributes book and just as powerful. What a heart challenge to address God's attributes.
