"I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me." Psalm 16:7 (ESV)
Every day runs its course, and all tasks but one must come to an end: to search God and know Him. Of this there can be no end.
In these 365 daily reflections on the wonder of God and the way of His Word, Tozer prompts us to seek God earnestly and love Him with our whole heart. Known for his steadfast devotion and incisive ponderings upon the Christian life, A. W. Tozer is a wise and trustworthy counselor.
As the daylight dims and the night winds down, let Evenings with Tozer rest your heart in Gods eternal wisdom.
"Tozer is one of the great Christian writers of this century. Reading him is like drinking at an oasis in the desert."
Dr. J. I. Packer, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Tozer's writings are as relevant today as they were decades ago when he wrote them. Taken from books and sermons and other writings of his, these 366 Devotional Readings are meant to be a complement to personal Bible study time and I have to say they are thought provoking!
In one of the readings, Tozer speaks of our devotional life being crowded out by busyness and modern technologies. Sound familiar? He was referring to radio and television but I can only imagine how he would feel with the distractions of tablets, phones, computers, and hand held games that we have in the 21st century. Rarely do I see families eating at a table in a restaurant without one or all of them staring at their individual electronic devices while silence reigns between them. I am guilty of this myself!
I have been re-energized by this devotional. My copy already has many passages highlighted. Tozer was a studied man, devoted to prayer, and a highly respected 'modern day' theologian for his time. I highly recommend adding Evenings with Tozer to your daily repertoire of study materials.
I received a complimentary copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review, only my opinion of the book. No compensation has been received.

I have always admired Tozer's writings and his love and devotion to God. I have read a book or two by him in the past and been encouraged and motivated by his writings. This book makes me want to curl up with a cup of something warm on a cold evening and just reflect on God.
This is a collection of 365 daily readings that will stimulate you to a closer walk with God and motivate you to grow as a Christian and lead you to a life of holiness. Each day contains a Scripture to meditate on and a devotional to go along with it in Tozer's words but compiled Gerald Smith. Tozer is not about denomination, instead he is all about a relationship with God and really getting to know Him! These devotionals will help you pursue a deeper relationship with the Trinity.
Tozer gives us lots of food for thought. Such as the devotional titled God Has Few Admirers Among Christians Today. In which Tozer says: " To love God because He has been good to us is one of the most reasonable things possible, but the quality of our worship is stepped up as we move away from the thought of what God has done for us and nearer the thought of the excellence of His holy nature. This leads us to admiration! The dictionary says that to admire is 'to regard with wondering esteem accompanied by pleasure and delight; to look at or upon with an elevated feeling of pleasure.' According to this definition, God has few admirers among Christians today. "
I encourage you to challenge and stretch your faith with a copy of Tozer's work. Mine was provided by Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. I am not required to review it positively or otherwise compensated for my opinion.

Evenings With Tozer, by A. W. Tozer, contains 366 daily, simple, one-page devotions that are powerful and meaningful.
What a lovely way to end each dayin devotional readings that guides us in our Christian life and ultimately brings us closer to God. Though the author died in the early sixties, his teachings are still timely and stir the readers heart.
Each devotional reading is dated and contains a descriptive title, Scripture verse (KJV), and single-page devotion. The messages are heart stirring, conscience pricking, and soul edifying. A nightly reading from Tozers writings closes each day in reverence and communion with our Lord
I really like the organization, the variation of messages, and the way each devotion is presented. The author uses smooth flowing, almost poetic language that I really enjoy. Below is an example from the June 20th reading:
The whole universe is alive with Gods life, and He is no strange or foreign God, but the familiar Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose love has for these thousands of years enfolded the sinful race of man.
This book contains powerful messages of wonder, guidance, and wisdom. I plan to purchase Mornings With Tozer, also, for a double daily dose of blessings.
I received a Review Copy from MPNews.
