The Books #14: The Knowledge of the Holy by A. W. Tozer

The Knowledge of the Holy is the second book on my list by A. W. Tozer, but it is the first of two that are written on the character of God. There are parts of this book that have been quoted by others and myself very often. For instance, Tozer says, "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." Ever heard that? Probably if you have been around me, you have. That was the influence of Tozer and this book upon my life.

Throughout this book, Tozer takes the reader through a systematic overview of the character and doctrine of God. Each chapter is short and lends itself to being a great book for discussion with other people in a small group format. There may be no greater study at any time than to take a look at the character of God. Why. Because when we take a look at God, a deep look at His character, we tend to shrink in humility. And that is the way it should be. Any study of the character of God should make us fall to our knees in worship. And that is what this book does.

So, read it. Enjoy it. Not because Tozer is some sort of excellent writer. But because Tozer has been able to capture a glimpse of the depth of God, the creator of all that is. And when you read it, let yourself become a worshiper of God.
