Publisher's Description

A.W. Tozer on Living in God's Wisdom

We were created by God and for God, and the only way to find true joy, peace, and contentment is by understanding and embracing his wisdom. Wisdom is not some highbrow philosophical concept, but rather a highly practical tool for living the best possible life.

The Wisdom of God captures Tozer's teaching on this topic as a way to understand the well-lived Christian life. God's wisdom is a part of his character, inseparable from his love and grace, and knowing this wisdom means drawing closer to him. It will change your decisions, attitudes, and relationships, setting you on the path to becoming all God wants you to be.

    On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, The Wisdom of God by A.W. Tozer is saltine crackers. This simple food used at sick beds and on cheese platters nourishes. To a tongue used to high levels of sugar and fats, the nuances of flavor might be lost, but make no mistake, these crackers crunch and create a foundation for flavor.

    With an introduction, 23 chapters, and closing prayer, The Wisdom of God begins a trek through a journey of wisdom. While some chapters pace on earthen paths of practicality, much of the book wings through Biblical truths and theories for the philosophy of wisdom. Basically, the key is focusing on Gods wisdom rather than a human version of wisdom.

    Wisdom fascinates me. It always has, but my mind wandered often while I read this book. Although every chapter focuses on wisdom, it really does feel like a compilation of separate thoughts (which it is, a compilation, at least). Ive read other books by Tozer before, and this one had a different tone. I often struggled with feeling that I sat in a hard wooden pew while a preacher spoke, rather than having a cup of coffee with a man who loves the Lord.

    All that said, I still folded page corners down (horror!) because certain thoughts and quotes sprang upon me with such a ringing truth that I had to pause, breathe, and read again. Sometimes, I really think for all of our gadgets to simplify life, weve really missed the simple way of Gods wisdom.

    "We should not only memorize the Word, which is an excellent thing to do, but also know the difference between truth and error in applying the Word faithfully." (91)

    The Wisdom of God is a compilation of A.W. Tozer's various sermons about wisdom, and specifically God's wisdom. Many of A.W. Tozer's works have been published through the years and this being the most recent that have never been published before. Reverend James Snyder, having received permission from Mr. Tozer's estate to compiled and published this collection carefully presented readers another thought-provoking work.

    "We have ignored the fact that Christianity has a divine source; it is divinely ordained, divinely given, and it cannot be humanly explained. It can only be promoted by divine wisdom and power." (50)

    Many of Mr. Tozer's sermons have stirred the soul from its powerful message of seeking God's will and His purpose first in our lives. In The Wisdom of God, readers can grasp the ultimate attempt at seeking His wisdom for our journey. There's a strong comparison between science and theology and though it's understandable, I find this compilation forceful in providing examples of extremes only. It did required some thought, and in that aspect successful. In all, a book that I can see future personal research and reflection.

    Disclaimer: I won a copy of this book from the author/publisher in a giveaway. A review was not required. This is my honest opinion.

    THE WISDOM OF GOD

    Letting His Truth And Goodness Direct Your Steps

    Compiled and edited by James L. Snyder from writings of A. W. Tozer

    As the title states, this book is about the wisdom of God. Compiled from sermons and writings of A. W. Tozer. A. W. Tozer was a powerful preacher that loved the Lord and share his love in his writing and sermons. If you have read any of Tozers writings, you know what to expect from this collection. If you are new to Tozer you are in for a great reading and lots of information about Gods wisdom. The book explains the Hebrew doctrine of wisdom, Christ, the wisdom of God, root of divine wisdom and many more area of wisdom. There are twenty-three chapters that explains the truth of Gods wisdom to help in guiding you to a better understanding.

    A quote from the back of the book: Wisdom is not just a philosophical concept, but rather a highly practical tool for living the best possible life.

    There is no other way to fine peace and joy then by learning Gods wisdom and using it in our life. God love us and shares His wisdom with us which we get by reading His Word. This book can be used in group Bible discussions and Sunday school for a new understanding of wisdom.

    Why we need wisdom from God

    The material in this book has been collected from sermons Tozer preached in the early 1960s. (He died in 1963.) The message is needed today, perhaps even more so than a generation ago.

    Tozer concentrates on the Hebrew understanding of wisdom in the first part of the book. I did not find that section particularly interesting. Tozer begins to explore godly wisdom and its necessity about a quarter of the way into the book. That material is dynamite.

    Tozer believed that the "compelling need" was for Christians to receive the divine illumination of wisdom from God. "Lacking that," he said, "the church is blind." (Loc 521/2038) He distinguishes wisdom and scholarship. He shares the characteristics of a wise person. He reminds us it is a gift from God through the Holy Spirit into the heart of a humble person.

    I highly recommend this book to church leaders. Even in Tozer's day, he called the new ideas and programs "religious claptrap and modern entertainment." (Loc 690/2038) He would rather have the fire of God and the presence of the Holy Spirit, he said. I also recommend this book to all Christians who desire to know more about wisdom from God, the humility needed to receive it, and the life one leads with it.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    Good underlying points, but I wasn't always sure what he really meant

    "The Wisdom of God" is hard to describe. Tozer kind of wandered from topic to topic, but each chapter related to wisdom in some way. He sometimes quoted the same verses or made the same points in different chapters, so I'm curious if this is basically a compilation of his sermons relating to wisdom. However, his overall point is that human wisdom can't save you, only God's wisdom (a.k.a. Jesus).

    He started by talking about how the logos in John 1:1-3 reflects the ancient Hebrew understanding of the word and of wisdom, not the Greek philosophy involving logos. He then talked about why we need wisdom and where we find it (Christ!).

    He then started preaching against modern (at that time) trends, like people using "precipitation" instead of crediting God for the rain. His underlying point was against placing your confidence in man's wisdom, but the way he stated this came across as anti-science and anti-logic (don't try to prove God). Again, while his underlying point seems to be that true Christians have to repent, see a life change, and shouldn't compromise God's teachings to avoid conflict, he came across as saying that true Christians should have a profound conversion experience, be deeply committed to God, and make enemies out of everyone as they stand up for God's truth.

    As I didn't have a conversion experience involving profound remorse and have managed to stand up for the truth without making enemies of everyone, I felt like he went looking to the extreme to make his points. Or maybe I'm just misunderstanding him. I've enjoyed Tozer's books in the past, but this one left me feeling unsure about what he meant in some parts.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
