Tozer is the bomb, to say the least.
Poignant Quotes:
Tribulation has always sobered God’s people and encouraged them to look for and yearn after the return of their Lord.

Which is to say that our attitude toward things is likely in the long run to be more important than the things themselves.

To accept Christ is to form an attachment to the Person of our Lord Jesus altogether unique in human experience. The attachment is intellectual, volitional and emotional. The believer is intellectually convinc

This book is a diamond in the rough, completely overlooked by many. I'm just so thankful that a good friend of mine recommended it to me. She more insisted that I read it instead of recommending it, but I can see why. It's a very deep book. You can read a matter of three pages and need a day or two to think about it.

Books don't get better than this!

Tozer is a compilation of his 'best' work by Warren Wiersbe. It begins with an introduction by Wiersbe that shares with readers WHY they should read Tozer, and, what makes him special. He says it well, I must admit.

The book is composed of excerpts, chapters, from Tozer's books. It includes three chapters from The Pursuit of G
