Reflections on Christ, from a beloved spiritual writer
A. W. Tozer was a man of remarkable knowledge, an avid reader of Christian writers and philosophers from throughout the ages. But he meditated on the Bible. He was, like John Wesley, "a man of one Book and a student of many."
Combine this with his poignant writing style and you have works like this one, high thoughts of God brought low, yet no less moving.
Jesus: The Life and Ministry of God the Son features selections from Tozers writings on the God-man, Jesus Christ. It follows the chronology of Christ's earthly life and explores classic themes of Christology, helping readers better comprehend and appreciate Jesus person and work.
When you set out to study Christ, you want to behold His splendor the best you can. Thats why writers like A. W. Tozer are excellent guides: they love the Lord, know Him well, and yet have a way with the written word. They're able to lay the weight of glory on the human heart as few can.
Read Jesus and appreciate anew the Savior of the world and the power of the written word to glorify His name.
contemplativereflections5 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: JesusOctober 17, 2017contemplativereflectionsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0In "Jesus," A.W. Tozer invites Christians to gain a greater understanding of the person and work of Jesus Christ. These selected writings span a wide range of theological concepts that are critical for believers to grasp hold of. Tozer reminds us that Christ exists eternally as the second Person of the Trinity who is the exact imprint of the Father. Moreover, Jesus created all things and continually sustains His creation for His glory and honour. As the Son of God, He reveals to us the Father and dwelt among us in human flesh but without losing His divinity. As the Son of Man, He came to sympathize with our condition and took upon Himself our sins and weaknesses as the Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. In addition, He has become our Mediator as the One who obeyed the law perfectly and offered His blood as propitiation to make us right with God. Furthermore, by the Spirit's power, He resurrected from the dead and now sits at the right hand of the Father ruling over all. Although Christ has ascended into heaven, He is still always present with us through His Spirit and in His handiworks. Lastly, we have the glorious hope in knowing that Jesus will return and re-create the world where He will rule as King forever.
I would heartily recommend this book as the selected topics are vital to the cultivation of a robust spiritual life. Christology is one of the most crucial theological doctrines since the Christian life is utterly dependent on person and work of Jesus Christ. Tozer's reflections and pastoral concerns are just as important to believers today as doctrinal and cultural attacks on Christianity most often involve rejections or distortions of Christ as presented to us in the Bible. We need to embrace Jesus as the perfect God-man who has always existed with the Father and Spirit but chose to put on human nature as part of God's divine redemption plan. Tozer shows us that He is Creator, Sustainer, Benefactor, Miracle Worker, Saviour, Offering, Lord, Remedy, Mediator, and Priest. When we continuously meditate on what Scripture teaches us about Christ, we will enjoy sweeter fellowship with God and aim to walk blameless lives to prepare ourselves to meet our King.

MichelleWelchThe Woodlands, TXAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Nothing but JesusMay 17, 2017MichelleWelchThe Woodlands, TXAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A. W. Tozer, one of the most prominent theologians of his time, is truly an inspiration to anyone who desires a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Christ. His reminder that everything but Jesus "shrinks in stature and significance" boldly states the obvious. Nothing but Jesus. This book is also a reminder that God uses us when and how He desires, oblivious to what man thinks of our status in life. Written by a self educated man with no formal schooling, A. W. Tozer's "Jesus" takes the reader to an intimate place where we see just what we need to grow our relationship with the only one who loves us unconditionally. The only one who truly cares about our future. The only one who desires us to be in His presence for eternity. This book is a collection of writings from Tozer's various books and sermons focusing specifically on Jesus Christ, God the Son. It should find it's way into every believer's collection and should be read regularly to inspire us to remember just what is important in our lives.
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Gets you thinking!November 5, 2016Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a collection of 17 sermons or essays by A. W. Tozer which focus on Jesus and on God's glory. I've been using it as a devotional, and the questions at the end of the chapter make me think and help me to process that chapter. Tozer tends to dig deep on a topic. He's not difficult to understand, but I usually need to stop and think things over as I read so I can contemplate his full meaning. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting and insightful collection, especially to those who enjoy Tozer's writings.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
