"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.
