From the Library of A. W. Tozer

Book - From the Library of A. W. Tozer - Selections from Writers who influenced His spiritual Journey.

Publisher - Bethany House

I love the life and work of A. W. Tozer.  I was delighted to hear that James Stuart Bell had put together this incredible book.  It is hardcover and more than 400 pages long.  Have you ever wondered what influenced Tozer to a godly life? In this book, you will read inspiring passages from those who "mentored" Tozer through their writings.

Here is what you'll find inside:

 - A biographical sketch of Tozer's life.

- Short selections from writers like Samuel Rutherford, Jonathan Edwards, D.L. Moody, A.B. Simpson, John Milton, John Knox and many more.

- A very brief biography of each of the writers

Here is a sample selection:

"The Holy Spirit is waiting in the far-distant places of the earth for the voice of anointed man to preach, in order that through that instrumentality He may carry on His work of convicting of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment." - G. Campbell Morgan, page 161

"Ah, how rare it is to find a soul still enough to hear God's speak!"  - Francois Fenelon, page 156

My Overall Thoughts

I have been reading this book as a devotional, a little each day. The passages are fairly short - 1 to 3 pages each, so it is easy to read, and meditate, for a few minutes.  This is an excellent resource and would benefit many Christians.
