This classic of Christian testimony and devotion explores the attributes of God in words that fly straight to the heart. A superb aid to strengthening and deepening the spiritual life, each chapter begins with a prayer, lucidly discusses a divine aspect -- from God's infinity to God's love -- and relates that aspect to today's world, while pointing always to God's wonder and inscrutability.
A. W. Tozer asserts that the cause of many of our modern spiritual woes is the loss in today's church of a lofty concept of God. He argues persuasively that the cure lies in our rediscovery of God's majesty. "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us," he writes. "The history of mankind will probably show that no people has ever risen above its religion, and man's spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God." The Knowledge of the Holy bearseloquent witness to the concept of God's majesty, encourages reverent meditation on the being of God, and offers a way to bring back spiritual power to our lives.
A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) was a popular evangelical author and Christian mystic. The author of thirty books, he has been called one of the most influential American evangelists of the twentieth century.
AR Reid5 Stars Out Of 5Changed the way I think about GodFebruary 10, 2014AR ReidQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book literally changed the way I think about God. Tozer is such a clear thinker that it doesn't take him very many pages to get his point across.
The first time I read this book I was absolutely stunned at Tozer's insights into God's attributes, so much so, that when I finished it, I immediately began reading it again. The second time I read it, I couldn't believe how much I'd missed the first time.
This is an absolutely outstanding book, and one that you will remember the content of for a very long time. Buy this book, find a quiet place to sit and read it, and be ready to have your heart stirred, your mind stimulated, and your God exalted. Happy reading.
