Publisher's Description

Dynamic, Never-Before-Published Work on the Holy Spirit from A.W. Tozer

What does it mean to have the Holy Spirit in our lives? Many look to extraordinary experiences and manifestations as evidence of the Spirit. But what happens when the event is over? How can we experience the Holy Spirit in the ordinary, everyday world? How can we be filled with the Spirit?

In this material taken from Tozer's sermons, he answers these questions and explores life in the Spirit from a balanced perspective. The church needs the gifts of the Spirit--all of them--or it will never be what God intends it to be. But this has to happen in wisdom and humility.

Many people talk about being filled with the Holy Spirit, but very few accept the conditions for being filled. Tozer lays down requirements for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives and transform us into Spirit-filled people. Though every Christian has the Holy Spirit, not every Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit. He explains the difference and how it could change the evangelical church of today.

    This book was a little different than I was expecting. I found that it was more a call to be alive in the Holy Spirit than a practical guide to reach it. In the later chapters, it gave a few practical steps, but it was more a call to revival instead. It was more philosophical but was fairly simple to understand. Some of my favorite quotes from the book were:

    We will never get anywhere unless the Holy Spirit has the authority to convict us so that He might bring us into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and a steady walk with Him (p. 84-85).

    I have endeavored to point out that there are certain gifts and talents, but there are some that come like fruit, and the tree does not cultivate the fruit; the farmer does (p.140).

    "Some people have not wept an honest tear for anybody in distress, but they will weep while there is somebody sitting at a desk somewhere in the studio making believe they are in trouble" (p.171-172).

    I really enjoyed the book because it made me think about how I live and what I think about the Holy Spirit. It was thought-provoking and challenging.

    This is the first book by Tozer that I have read, so I can't make comparisons to his other works. Here are a few things that stood out to me about this book.

    The written style is conversational and the chapters are relatively short. I tried to keep in mind that I was reading Tozer's sermons, words spoken as opposed to written, and that was helpful to me.

    Considering that these sermons were from the late 1950s, I was impressed by how applicable and current Tozer's teaching and admonitions are to the church and Christians today.

    If you're looking for a deep discussion of the gifts of the Spirit, or the manifestations of the Spirit, or anything regarding certain people or movements, this is not your book. The primary focus in this book is on the individual's relationship with the Holy Spirit, resulting in the evidences of the Spirit's fruit in their lives and humble obedience in using the gift(s) He bestows. Tozer discusses the characteristics of a Spirit-filled church, why many churches today are Spirit-less, and numerous reasons why people are not interested in being truly Spirit-filled or participating in a truly Spirit-filled church.

    While there were a few topics I wish Tozer would've developed more fully or more deeply, the book overall was insightful and convicting.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.

    Alive in the Spirit: Experiencing the Presence and Power of God is a never before published book on the teachings of A.W. Tozer concerning the Holy Spirit. This book focuses on the individual life of the believer. Not the corporate church. The thing is that the church can only go as far as individuals are willing to go. Our lives are only as surrendered to the Spirit as we choose to be.

    I wasn't all that fond of how the book was compiled. There are places where it jumps around to me from one sermon or topic to another. The language of Tozer is very simplistic and at times I wish he would have gone deeper in some areas. The thing that struck me as powerful was the fact that Tozer died in 1963. This book speaks to our current situation in the church today. It was a powerful thing to realize that all He said then is still a problem now.

    This book spoke to me in so many areas that it will be hard to put it into words. The things that touched my heart may not speak to your heart. Tozer talks about how once we are filled with the Spirit that we lose control. Tozer also explains that at times we try to take control back and the personal struggle that exists.

    Tozer attempts to talk about all the aspects that come with being filled with and surrendered to the Spirit in our lives. He tries to explain what being Spirit-filled should look like in your life and the conditions that come with that. Such as we can't really be filled with the Spirit if we refuse to come under the authority of the Spirit. I highly recommend that if you want to know more about the role of the Holy Spirit that you give it a read.

    As much as I didn't love the style of the writing I can't deny that the words spoke to my heart and it is a book that I will likely read again and again.

    If you have read "The Pursuit of God" you NEED to read this book! Just as with any other Tozer work, I took much from his deep spiritual wisdom. Tozer was a man of God who was completely drenched in the Holy Spirit. His works are a testament to his direct, personal relationship with the Lord. The Pursuit of God is my favorite book from Tozer and this is the reason why I greatly enjoyed this one as well. "Alive in the Spirit" is an explanation on how to get one on one with the Holy Spirit and how we can enjoy a life in relationship with the Trinity. One thing that I respect, admire, and take as a great example from Tozer, is his unapologetic way of speaking the truth no matter how "controversial" or unpopular it may be- which unfortunately is not true about most preachers today. In "Alive in the Spirit" Tozer calls out the sleeping church and its worldly interests over spiritual hunger. I forgot, whilst reading, that these writings are from the late 50s-early 60s, yet these truths are so very true today. Tozer's warnings, admonitions, encouragement, exhortations to the Christians should not fall on deaf ears, for his wisdom is drawn from much time spent in prayer, humility, and in the Spirit. Through the pages, it is evident that Tozer knew the secret of walking in the Spirit and a life of total abandonment.

    Though he lacked a college degree, Tozer is an example, that none is needed to preach the inherent Word of God with such fire and power that shakes the souls. He was one of the last true preachers of the 20th century, God bless Rev. Snyder for taking the time to bring us these valuable works! Tozer's works are written in an easy to read and understand vocabulary, school-age children can comprehend.

    If I could give this book 100 stars I would!

    Who is the third Person of the Trinity? Is He someone who just comes when we call Him? Does our worship really depend on Him being a part?

    This collection of sermons by A.W. Tozer shines the spotlight on the Holy Spirit, chastising Christians for the lack of the Spirit in their lives.

    Compiled and edited by James L. Snyder, Alive in the Spirit delves into Tozer's individual experiences with the Holy Spirit as well as pinpointing the lack of the Spirit in today's church. Additionally, Tozer places responsibility on experiencing the Holy Spirit's presence on the individual him/herself.

    If you want to know the Holy Spirit better, Tozer does an excellent job of simply pointing you to Him. This compilation of sermons is an easy read without taking away from the seriousness of the subject matter.
