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.
PossessHisPromisesCaliforniaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Do you know the holy?November 29, 2015PossessHisPromisesCaliforniaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Have you tried to grasp the wonder of the nature of God?
For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways, declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
And yet, the Word of God is given to us to learn of God, and the Holy Spirit dwells within Gods people to guide us and teach us.
In The Knowledge of the Holy, A.W. Tozer prayerfully approaches the nature of God and reveals His majesty and glimpses of Gods height, width, and depth of nature.
Although Tozer examines 21 attributes of God, he writes
In studying any attribute, the essential oneness of all the attribues soon becomes apparent. We see, for instance, that if God is self-existent He must be also self-sufficient; and if He has power He, being infinite, must have all power. If He possesses knowledge, His infinitude assures us that He possesses all knowledge. Similarly, His immutability presupposes His faithfulness. If He is unchanging, it follows that He could not be unfaithful, since that would require Him to change Thus the attributes explain each other and prove that they are but glimpses the mind enjoys of the absolutely perfect Godhead. pp. 78-79
From the eternity of God to His omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence, to Gods faithfulness, goodness, justice, mercy, grace, and love, Tozer wraps Gods attributes in the absolute holiness of our sovereign God.
This book was the last book Tozer wrote. It is evident that this book was the culmination of a lifetime of intimately walking with God. Although the book is only 117 pages long, I took my time and often reread paragraphs.
A.W. Tozer has a special place in my heart, and this is a book that I will read periodically. I purchased it to read before I read the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy, Delighting in God.

His books are classics and this one follows suit. Read it and let it sink in. You will see the depth and clarity on each aspect Tozer discusses. Its a prime rib meal that must be savored not devoured.

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.
