An Inspirational Devotional - Evenings with Tozer

"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 God’s 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

My Thoughts:
I love the cover of this book, but even more I like the inspiring devotionals found on the inside. 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.
About the Author:
A. W. TOZER (1897–1963) began his lifelong pursuit of God after hearing a street preacher in Akron, Ohio, at the age of seventeen. The self-taught theologian committed his life to the ministry of God’s Word as a pastor, teacher, and writer. For his flowing prose, Spirit-filled words, and deep conviction, many have called him a modern-day prophet. He is the author of the beloved classic The Pursuit of God and dozens of other works.
