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.

debiNaples, FLAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Knowledge of the HolyNovember 1, 2014debiNaples, FLAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A. W. Tozer is well known for his love and devotion to The Almighty. He uses exacting, illustrative speech to describe our God in such a way to create that sense of awe and wonder we yearn for as we seek His magnificent presence. Tozer delivers us to His doorstep as he teaches profoundly using Old English grammar (doesn't waste a word) to detail the aspects of God's personality. I have read, reread and absorbed these cherishable words into my soul. I keep this book close by and read often to keep me fearfully and reverently in His presence.
jesusninja5 Stars Out Of 5The Knowledge of the HolyOctober 29, 2014jesusninjaThis book is great!! I am re-reading it. It evokes a deeper perception of God as I contemplate His attributes. This is a book that you have to keep for yourself once you get it. But, you should also consider giving it as a gift to someone you love.
Nanette5 Stars Out Of 5Words are not sufficientOctober 28, 2014NanetteThis book was absolutely astonishing! The author is right on target when he claims that we don't really realize who God is. That we bring God down onto our level. The manner and style in which he writes enables us to grasp as best as our finite minds can the truth about God. He sees our difficulty in comprehending God in human terms and language. And with that in mind he tries to explain the reasons. This book is revealing, enlightening, inspirational and I would HIGHLY recommend it to all people. For people who are already followers of Jesus, the book reveals God's majesty in ways we never dreamed about. It will make you ponder about God's devine spirit, attributes and qualities like you never did before.
