God's Infinitude, Immensity, Goodness, Justice, Mercy, Grace, Omnipresence, Immanence, Holiness, Perfection all answer, what is God like? For A.W. Tozer, there is no question more important. In fact, Tozer's desire to know God and His fullness consumed his entire life and ministry.
Originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, this first volume of The Attributes of God examines ten attributes of God. A study guide has been added for an in depth look at each attribute. This all important book deals with the most important subject matter of God's traits. We should esteem Him stricken, smitten and afflicted, yet see Him as our Creator and King in awe, wonder, and fear with righteousness and amazement. How can we even be allowed to have a glimpse of His beauty, compassion, and grace?
What others say about A.W. Tozer and his writings: "If a sermon can be compared to light, then A.W. Tozer released a laser beam from the pulpit, a beam that penetrated the heart." Warren Wiersbe

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent focus, easy to read, thought-provokingFebruary 13, 2013Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"The Attributes of God, Volume 1" is a sermon series/Bible study on the attributes of God. Tozer quoted from sources that used old English, which sometimes slowed the reading a little for me, but the main text was very easy to read and understand. A Bible study was included at the back of the book for those desiring to use this book as a group Bible study. The content is fully relevant to today's world.
Tozer looked to Scripture to answer "What is God like?" and he came to balanced, Bible-based conclusions. By balanced, I mean that he didn't let one attribute dominate the others but viewed them as being in perfect harmony with each other. He made a lot of strong comments, some of which are bound to offend some people, but probably not the type of people who would pick up this book.
Overall, I thought he made some excellent, thought-provoking points. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I'd recommend it to others...perhaps as a devotional reading?
The attributes covered in this volume were: God's infinitude, immensity, goodness, justice, mercy, grace, omnipresence, immanence, holiness and perfection.

IanRNaples, FLAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A mind expanding view of what God is like!March 30, 2012IanRNaples, FLAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Of course this is well known classic, and most ChristianBook readers will know Aidan Tozer's work. For me, when I first read it years ago, this book laid a foundational understanding of some of God's most important characteristics, as well as making me think differently about the absolute nature of God. "All love", Tozer says, "is God's love." Of course it is. How could love exist and be separated from God. I had never thought in that way before. When I discovered this volume missing from my book shelves I had to rebuy it. Receiving it again was like having an old and much-valued friend return.
Q: Are there pages with questions? Are there pages in the book with answers to fill in and write about from posed questions?
reflection or group discussion. There is not a fill in answers sections..
