What an encouraging book it has been for me right now!
The first sentence in the preface was so stunning and powerful that I thought, "This is going to be amazing!" Tozer proclaims:
- True religion confronts earth with heaven and brings eternity to bear upon time.
- The low view of God entertained almost universally among Christians is the cause of a hundred lesser evils everywhere among us.
- It is impossible to keep our moral practices sound and our inward attitudes right while our idea of God is erroneous or inadequate.
And that is just the Preface.
It is my goal to take one chapter at a time and give you a few of my favorite quotes. As I have read it my awe and fear of God has been renewed. He is Holy and if we are to be holy we must first know the Holy One in all of His attributes.
Go buy it. It is worth every penny.
