Review ~ The Attributes of God

Thanks to Moody Publishers for sending me another great book wrote by A.W. Tozer, titled The Attributes of GOD~Volume 2 Deeper Into the Father's Heart to review. The book starts out with an introduction where Tozer shares why you should study the attributes of God.
1. Because God is the cause behind all things and the only ONE who can give meaning to our existence. 2. Another reason to study, is for our own spiritual protection. 3. The last reason Tozer gives is to develop faith and trust in HIM. These words from Tozer, sum it up perfectly:
"Christianity at any given time is strong or weak depending upon her concept of God. An I insist upon this and I have said it many times, that the basic trouble with the Church today is her unworthy conception of god." 
The book cover tens attributes of God through out the ten chapters, along with a summary and study guide that was put together by David Fessenden. Which will help you study deeper and would be useful to study in a group with.
I like A.W. Tozer writing and the way he explains things through his words, scripture and relating it to the world around us. I believe this book should be read by everyone, it will help to open up your eyes to just how awesome God is and help you to know God better. Though we can never know everything about HIM, because of who God is, but once you start to understand and know God it will take your faith deeper, it will change your thoughts, and fill you with so much peace and joy, which is hard to explain in words, it is something that a person needs to take a hold of for themselves to develop a relationship with God.
For the first time, I really grasped the trinity in how Tozer explained God's self-existence. The book helped me to understand more of how powerful, unchanging and faithful God is, how He has always been before all things, is everywhere, and God's sovereignty and free will. I highly recommend this book to all, there is a volume one that you also don't want to miss.

From the publishers:
"What is God like?"
For A. W. Tozer, there is no question more important. In fact, Tozer's desire to know God and His fullness consumed his entire life and ministry.
Originally preached as sermons to the Avenue Road congregation in Toronto, this follow-up to The Attributes of God Volume 1 examines ten more attributes of God. It also includes a study guide for an in-depth look at each attribute:
  • Self-Existent
  • Transcendent
  • Eternal
  • Omnipotent
  • Immutable
  • Omniscient
  • Wise
  • Sovereign
  • Faithful
  • Loving
Steeped in Scripture and filled with the Spirit, Tozer preached with striking clarity and power. The sense of his sermons comes through on every page, bringing the Word of God to bear upon you.

To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I want to thank to Moody Publishers.
